Keeping Football Kits Pristine!

As we approach the final whistle of the 23/24 football season, the wear and tear on team kits are more evident than ever. From the muddy dives to the grassy slides, every mark tells a story of the season’s challenges and triumphs. However, as much as these marks are badges of honour, maintaining the pristine appearance of your team’s kit is crucial for both performance and professionalism.

With Wolf Laundry’s expertise, widely recognised by professional clubs like Sheffield United, Barnsley FC, Peterborough, and Morecambe, let’s guide you through ensuring your football kits finish the season as clean and vibrant as they started.

Football teams using Flow Detergents

Choosing the Right Detergent

The foundation of any good laundry routine is selecting the right detergent. Wolf’s Flow detergents range is specially formulated to tackle the tough stains associated with football – grass, mud, and blood, without damaging the fabric. For the common green grass stains the enzyme-rich formula of Flow’s bio detergent works to break down the proteins and chlorophyll bonds, making them easier to wash away.

For stubborn mud and blood stains, try Flow’s Laundry Boost. The blend of alkalis penetrate deeply, lifting the stains from the fabric fibres without harming the kit’s material or fading its colours.

Effective Stain Removal Techniques

  1. Pre-treatment is Key: Apply a small amount of Flow detergent directly to the stain as soon as possible. Gently work the detergent into the fabric with a soft brush or cloth.
  2. Cold Water Rinse: Before machine washing, rinse the stained areas under cold water to remove as much of the surface dirt as possible. Avoid hot water as it can set the stains deeper.
  3. Appropriate Washing Settings: Use a gentle cycle with cold water to prevent shrinking or colour fading. Flow detergents are designed to be highly effective even in lower temperatures.

Machine Upgrades for Peak Performance

To ensure your kits are cared for with the precision and care they deserve, consider upgrading your laundry equipment. Wolf Laundry’s range includes high-efficiency washers and dryers that can handle the heavy loads and rigorous washing requirements of football kits. Machines like the Schulthess W range provide superior cleaning with customisable programs, ideal for the delicate fabrics and vibrant colours of your kits. Pairing these with an efficient large capacity W range dryer to ensure quick, even drying without damage.
