10 tips that will make your t-shirts last longer
In the past, we’ve all had t-shirts that were adored. We swore to stick by them, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health etc. etc. Unfortunately, those t-shirts don’t last long and the love story comes to an end. You probably would’ve loved to put them on one last time, but your loving compadres will disown you or make fun of you for a long long time.
For instance if you live in Tampa and purchase stuff from even the top Wholesalers of t-shirts in Tampa. After constant use no matter how good the t-shirts are they will eventually suffer from fading, fabric puckering, shrinkage, loosening of stitching, and etc. In this blog post, we are listing out few useful tips if followed can give your t-shirts longer life.
1. Even though hand-washing the t-shirts with cold water is a best washing method, it’s actually time-consuming and the time is people normally don’t have the luxury of losing. Hand-washing is also ineffective if you’ve got stains on your shirt. So let’s just go for machine-washing. When machine-washing, go for the settings that’s of most delicate on your washer because that makes sure your tee is washed with an appropriate temperature which will actually prevent shrinkage and fading of the color.
2. Always wash your t-shirts inside out. What this does is that it makes the wear and tear occur on the inside of your shirt rather than the outside. This keeps the exterior of the shirt looking fresh for longer.
3. Always wash the t-shirts with the same colors and the same types of fabrics together. This ensures that your t-shirt does not catch onto any other color and does not get worn out by the friction caused by different materials.
4. Always invest your time in reading the care label which is placed inside the t-shirt. It is intended there for a purpose. Follow the instructions as those instructions do in fact keep the t-shirts last longer.
5. Ditch the use of bleach or detergents that contain bleach. Bleach can damage fibers which later on results in the fabric to break or fall apart.
6. After washing, if using a dryer go for the low temperatures. Dryers may seem amazing inventions that get the job done quickly without harming your clothes. But in reality dryers can harm the fabric and make your t-shirts shrink if used on high temperatures. So always watch out for that.
7. If you hang-dry your clothes, dry them inside out. Hang-drying saves the t-shirts from the wear and tear they have to bear in a dryer. They also ensure that your tees do not face shrinkage and keeps your tees looking fresh.
8. If you hang your tees to dry outside, Avoid putting your clothes under direct sunlight as sunlight can cause the color of your t-shirt to fade.
9. Ironing your t-shirts is not advised, at least I don’t. But if you do iron, iron your t-shirts inside out, on a low setting. This reduces the risk of shrinkage and color fading.
10. If you don’t prefer to wear your t-shirts very often, instead of hanging them up on a hanger go for folding your tees and storing them in a cabinet or container. What this will do is save your t-shirts from getting out of shape or getting any shoulder bumps.
It’s a bitter truth is, no matter how well you treat your t-shirts, no matter how good a wholesaler of t-shirt in Tampa you purchase your shirts from (If you live in Tampa like me), one day or the other they will fade and wear off. Until that day comes, take care of them, keep them looking fresh and enjoy them.
