My brother gave my husband a Reebok/CCM Chicago Blackhawks hockey jersey. Not that you have time for the backstory, but it's funny because my husband isn't much of a hockey fan (and being from Detroit, he's especially not a Blackhawks fan), nor did he know whose hockey jersey he was wearing (for the record: Toews). Yet, he likes the jersey and wears it a lot, especially since our apartment is usually cold, and the jersey makes for a nice extra layer.
However, this jersey now needs to be laundered. Unfortunately, there are no laundering instructions in the jersey. These bad boys are expensive, and I'd hate to ruin it by guessing. Luckily, your customer service staffer Jeff was pretty helpful and suggested that cold water wash would work. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
And if you've got the time, could you let me know why the jersey doesn't contain a laundering tag? I'm guessing part of the reason is that NHL hockey players don't need to know how to wash their own jerseys--that most professional hockey leagues include laundry services. But for those of us who buy these shirts and don't have access to the professional know-how, would it hurt to include that info? I mean, this baby has a "Made in Canada" tag. Do Canadians have a certain inherited trait that knows how to wash a hockey jersey without instruction?
Thanks for your help.
