How to look after your T-Shirts
From an old T-shirt purchased as a souvenir in another country to your everyday necessities, the proper care and maintenance of your T-shirts can keep their colours brilliant and extend their shelf life!
Here’s a list of handy tips to keep your T-shirts looking like new:
Do not wear these T-shirts to sleep
Sleeping in your shirts might lead them to expand, reducing the dress's dressability.
Do not wash with harsh chemicals
Use as little detergent and other chemicals as possible while washing your clothes. You might also experiment with natural alternatives such as 'Baking Soda.'
Avoid hanging tees, fold them instead
There's no question that hanging them minimises the possibility of wrinkles, but it may also cause your shirts to expand and lose form over time!
Do not sun-dry the tees
Let them dry in the shade! This helps to maintain the colour of the clothing fresh and brilliant for a longer period of time
Prefer hand wash over machine
If you use the machine, choose a gentle wash cycle. Both procedures should be washed with cold water.
Do not iron with high heat
Excessive heat on clothing removes its vitality. When ironing, use a milder setting and keep the tees folded in your closet.
