    The greatest thing that I have found for washing my gi is to soak it in a water-vinegar solution and then after soaking overnight, put it in the washer, then hang to dry.

      Salt water also works.
      Of course, the old school method is to set the dye with your sweat (ie: by practicing in it, you set it). However, I really don't like looking like a smurf after practice for several months (as do most people).
      Maybe you need to air out your kote more after practice. My kote does not smell like roses, but the odor is tolerable. Of course, it could be that kendo killed all of my olfactory nerves ....

        Apparently something like 95% of all medicines are derived from naturally occuring substances in plants etc

          Dave,

          I don't want to argue about medicine. I'm talking about silly new age cures and ridiculous 'homeopathic urine therapy' nonsense that gets more people killed than anything else.
