Cleaning Shorts Follow Up

 Last August I wrote about a problem I was having with my cycling shorts' fading and wearing out after just one year. 
 Then I bought a pair of Boure' shorts and they faded after three months, so I complained to the company and was assisted on the proper care of shorts. It worked!! The first two pictures are of the shorts I was going to replace as they were fading.  
 The Boure' after one year.
 The Boure' of course  were bought in 2011. The shorts I was going to replace (pictured above) were bought in 2010.
 Just for added measure, above is another pair of shorts that were bought in 2011.
 Hopefully, it can be discerned that all three pair are still in good condition. After the article last year, I had some really good recommendations as to the care of my cycling gear. I decided to stick to the Boure' recommendation of using a liquid sport-wash. Using one method, if it worked, could be attributed to the one product. If I tried all of the recommendations, I would still be wondering which one provided the maintenance.
So, for the past year, I have been using Sport-Wash. We have been so pleased with the results that on occasion, we will use it for some of our routine laundry. (And it is cheaper than replacing a pair of shorts each year).
Probably everyone already knew about the proper care of cycling kits, but I am a slow learner.
However, now that I still have three good pair of cycling shorts, I must decide which pair I will take with me to the Wichita Falls "Hotter'n Hell Hundred" this weekend. I hope I take the fastest pair.

  2. Awesome blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm
    a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a
    free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any tips? Bless you!
