How to look after your T-Shirts
Be it an old souvenir tee from your holiday in Europe or your go-to top for the daily commute, proper care for your t-shirts is a big deal! The right kind of maintenance can extend shelf life and keep their colours as brilliant as brand new!
At 1947IND, we believe that choosing a durable fabric and devoting as little time as possible towards upkeep, is healthier for you and the environment!
Here’s a list of handy tips to keep your T-shirts looking like new:
Don’t wear them to sleep
Sleeping in your shirts might cause them to expand, reducing dress-ability.
Don’t wash them with harsh chemicals
Use as little detergent and chemicals as possible while washing your clothes. You might also want to experiment with natural alternatives such as 'Baking Soda
Avoid hanging them, fold instead
Hanging your t-shirts minimises the possibility of wrinkles, but it may also cause them to expand and lose form over time!
Don’t sun-dry them
Let them dry in the shade! This will help to retain the colour of the cloth for a longer period of time.
Choose hand-wash over machine
If you’re using the machine, choose a gentle wash cycle. In both cases, make sure its cold water!
Don’t iron them with high heat
Excessive heat on clothing removes vibrance. When ironing, use a milder setting and keep the tees folded in your closet.
