So you just bought a brand new soccer jersey and you want to keep it looking sharp for as long as possible. Or maybe your Manchester United jersey from the 20908 season is starting to look a bit worn. Well, our friends at SoccerPro.com have some tips to keep your licensed soccer jersey looking as good as new for longer. Make sure you check out the video guide below.

So here are the steps in written form:

Step 1: Pre-Soak your jersey in cold water by either using the “pre-soak” setting on your washing machine, or soaking it in the sink.

Step 2: Turn your jersey inside out

Step 3: Wash your jersey in cold water only to keep the colors looking sharp

Step 4: Once its finished washing, lay it flat or hang it up on a hangar to dry. Never leave it direct sunlight when it is drying as it will make the colors fade

Step 5: Never ever put it through the dryer

I've played soccer since I could walk thanks to my father and love keeping up on all the latest gear and gab. I'm in my twenties, and I'm lucky enough to have found work in search marketing for a leading soccer retailer after completing my M.A. at Georgetown in 2008. My team is Liverpool, and national side is Ireland, but I've also got a passion for GAA and a number of sports. Feel free to give me a shout on Google+
