Also, hang them up to dry...

Washing them with salt actually makes them fade faster. It's an old trick that we used in the military to make our cammies look older, thus making us look less like an FNG.


Exactly. IMO, I'd go with the faded look.

same. i have no idea why you would want crisp cammies for paintball, other than looks. and i like the faded look anyway, vibrant cammies make you look like a greenhorn.

When picking BDU's the cloth type is very very important. If you buy 100% cotton they WILL fade! Stick with the military spec like 50/50 NYCO. It resistes fading very well.
