Top Five Tips on Buhurt Soft Gear Care

  • Don’t store your soft gear in a bag after training.
  • We advise you to dry the equipment after each time you use it. It’s preferable to dry it in a room that is ventilated or in the outdoors.
  • Сlean up soft gear made of a leatherette fabric with an alcohol-free sanitiser after training. And don’t wash this equipment in a washing machine.
  • If you share the helmet with your teammates, we recommend you clean it up with an alcohol-free sanitiser after each use. 
  • Wash equipment’s removable inner lining in a washing machine as it gets dirty. On the delicate cycle at 30°C (or wool cycle or hand wash cycle, if your washer features these settings). Or hand wash it using a brush with a non-bleach detergent.

Last but not least, check out our Do’s and Don’t list:

  • Do not use soft gear with or against plastic and metal armor or sharp-edged swords that might damage the fabric. 
  • Use soft gear for combats, sparring sessions, and swordplay on well-equipped indoor and outdoor playgrounds. Ensure there are no metal items or tree branches around that might hurt you or damage your equipment.
  • Do not use soft armor in wooden fighting pits.
