alright i got a random question but i need it answered
i have the empire invert pants and they need to be washed
but the tag says hand wash cold and air dry but i dont have a sink big enough to wash em in and well i dont think air drying wet pants in 20 degree weather is a good idea
so just wanna now how u wash ur pants and if its ok to throw them in the washer n dryer

I don't wash my PB pants. The mess just makes it look more AGG.

I throw them in the wash and then I let them air dry. Don't put them in the dryer. :D

I have always just hosed mine down since i bought them but i put them in the washing machine after last weekend and they look new again.

I would say you can put in the washing machine just not the dryer.

Well, just set the washing machine to cold, and do it that way, then let em air dry, which should be quick considering that they're primarily synthetic fabrics.

got the same ones, machine wash and put in dryer on cool air (no heat) if you have that option, or just air dry

Hand wash = Gentle Cycle

I wash mine in cold Gentle and then hang them up to dry.

I've got some Dye pants, and I do the same thing after each weekend. Honestly, I turn my jersey in-side-out and toss it in as well, with just a tad of soap to help get all the crud out and to help remove the sweat smell.

Hang dry in a door way and a few hours later, dry, brand new looking gear.

I have Inverts as well. I put mine in on warm water (don't do this unless your used to doing your own laundry and know what your washer does) on perminate press medium. Then when they are done, I hang them on a line in the basement to dry. They dry rather quickly. (Yes in 20 degree weather too.)

I've never had problems with drying pants. I just throw them in the wash and then into the dryer.

Well... learn whats in your pants. If there are any plastic peices that could melt (ex: knee pads sometimes have plasticized foam) don't put them in the dryer at a high setting, but rather a tumble dry or very low setting. (Perminate press) I honestly wouldn't dry Inverts. That is if they are the same year as mine. (Mine are the '05's)

I hand wash my jersey... :dodgy:

I wash the whole teams jerseys in my shop, gentle cycle, inside out. Hang dry, rather dry hanging in my heat vented closet. I do the same for the teams pants.

I have hand washed my all my gear before just because I needed it the next day and didnt have access to a washer :p
