How do you guys wash your uniforms?
That pretty much says it all

I have always had the polyester blend. I always just wash them on cold, put them in the dryer on permanent press, and hang them immediately when dry. About once month I press them to get the creases back looking good.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

In all seriousness,
Cold wash with Woolite Dark. Permanent Press in the Dryer, then hanging immediately. That's for my normal duty wear. I usually press/iron mine twice a month, if not every weekend.
For my Class A uniforms I dry clean only, starch and press.Here Speeder, Speeder, Speeder

Always dry clean - never wash.
Gives a much more professional appearance.
(Plus, it's a deductable expense on my taxes.)

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and like it, never really care for anything else.

I tell them to use this little test before they decide to do something. If they were to do what they're thinking about, and it became the lead story on the six o'clock news, would they be proud? Would their department be proud, and would their family be proud? It's a simple way to live your life both personally and professionally.

I just follow the care instruction on the label... Usually, that's machine wash warm and dry on the permanent press setting. Update the creases with the occasional run through the dry cleaner -- or, horror of horrors... break out an iron!Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.

I just machine-wash mine in cold water and plain detergent (no bleach) to keep the patches from fading.

We have polyester. The best way to keep things looking sharp is dry cleaning and pressing, with a wash thrown in once a month to get the really nasty stuff out."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970
