It’s cool, collectible and pretty much irreplaceable (at least once our Pop-In stock sells out), so keep it wearable for years to come with a few of these simple laundry tips.
Wash your tee in cold water on gentle cycle whenever possible. (Don’t feel bad if you have to use warmer water occasionally to knock out some stains. That temp spike is legit.)
Skip the dryer and use an indoor drying rack. Heat can cause fading, pilling, shrinking and even sleeve deformities.
Ironing T-shirts, like ironing sheets, is a personal call. (If you dry your tee on a rack, wrinkles should be minimal.) If you have to use an iron, turn the tee inside out and press the iron down, then lift up and press another spot. Moving the iron in circular motions tugs on the fabric, leaving your beloved tee possibly deformed.
Avoid dry-cleaning an embroidered tee—the harsh chemicals can damage the fibers. Instead, turn it inside out, throw it in a mesh laundry bag and wash on cool. Save your cash, save your shirt.
