I am having a problem with my black gi top, cat fur sticks to it like crazy. My dryer does not remove the fur even with 1 1/2 antistatic sheets.

It's a polyester top, just a cheap one because I only use it for supplementary training and it's nice and cool, but the dryer doesn't seem to take any fur off.

Is this a gi problem, or a dryer problem?

You might just need to have a lint roller handy to use before you leave the house to train.

I agree with Brian here.

Try this too...Place the fur-covered item in your dryer on a low heat cycle like Permanent Press with a couple of wet microfiber cloths, the hair will stick to the microfiber cloths, and tumble until slightly damp. Remove the clothes from the dryer and use a clothes brush or sticky lint roller, if necessary, to remove the remaining fur.
