How to wash your shirt at home

Your most pricey shirts will last longer if you took the time to do them by hand. You will need to have to take the time to care for them yourself for a longer life span.

Perhaps the most cost-effective fashion tip you will ever learn is how to wash your own shirts. Of course, taking your shirts to a dry cleaner is easier; you drop them off and they come back clean and crisp. However, washing them yourself is not only economical but virtually guarantees durability. In fact, knowing how to wash a shirt is much more a matter of water temperature, soap and adequate soaking time than everything else.

Wash your own shirts at home

 

A conventional washing machine is designed for convenience of use and not the protection of your favorite shirt. Therefore, read the operating instructions and then wash your shirts on a fragile or hand-washable setting. This will slow down the revolutions and actions of the middle agitator.

Some newer machines do not use an agitator; nevertheless, you still want to use a lighter-action setting. Warm and cold water are most excellent for maintaining a shirt with colors. White shirts will require hot water and a dash of real bleach from time to time to maintain the collar clean and free of stain buildups. When doable, opt for a hypoallergenic, high-efficiency detergent without dyes or scents. All of those extra additives may seem attractive in a store but they break down the fibers in clothing and add an additional scent to your grooming regime. Color-safe bleach is suitable for a shirt with color stitching or designs but use these sparingly as well.
