    Commercials with (fake) sumo appearance

    Haribo was kawaii before there was kawaii. When they moved headquarters to Graftschaft, they wisely decided not to change the name to Harirhine.

    Should I wash a new Mawashi to soften it

    I used the American sumo equivalent. A bowling ball I had in my closest.

    Should I wash a new Mawashi to soften it

    You could also try to fold it and then pound it with sumo's universal tool, the empty beer bottle. This isn't a joke, it will help to make it softer. Furthermore you train your arms...and it trains your aim, if you have to discipline a new recruit somewhen in the future (that's obviously a (bad) joke).

    Should I wash a new Mawashi to soften it

    In the film 'Perseverance' (A Normal Life) that follows the first steps in the sumo career of Kyokutaisei, one of the household chores was to go to the laundrette to wash mawashi, and later you could see the long strips hung out to dry.
  20. I'm pretty sure you can enter a new one and it will overwrite the old one. You still have some time to do that.

    Should I wash a new Mawashi to soften it

    To continue with the word play as I press my Mawashi a second time all I can think is "Squashy Mawashi"
  23. Oh crap, why didn't I read this before I submitted my guess I'll have to blame my newborn son for not giving me enough spare time to follow the forum

    Should I wash a new Mawashi to soften it

    My friend suggested "Mawashi in My Washer" so it's tounge twister. Also the instructions from USA sumo didn't say to wash it unless I just glossed over it. I'm glad I did. It's much softer.

    Should I wash a new Mawashi to soften it

    Aren't they made with cotton and come starched and need to be washed before first use to get the starch out?

    'Machine washed mawashi' alliterates even better... <ducks for cover>
