How to Care for Your Tee.
We get it, you want to wear your Discoverhorizons Tee every chance you get. Although your t-shirt will show some wear and tear as time goes by there are some ways to extend the life of your t-shirt. It’s important that you know how to take care of your shirts in the best way possible, here are some tried-and-true tips and tricks.
- Wash with cold water. Hot water is very harsh and typically unnecessary. By using cold water, you’ll be treating your tees to a gentler bath and preventing unnecessary strain. Plus, you’ll use less electricity, reducing your impact on the environment and lowering your utility bill!
2. Avoid harsh cleaning products.
Put away the bleach and avoid harsh detergents. They are not needed and may slowly destroy the condition of your t-shirts. Instead, find a gentle detergent and use a basic (no bleach) stain remover when necessary.
- Turn your tees inside out.
It only takes a moment to turn your screen-printed tees inside out before placing them in the washing machine (or under a hot iron), but this simple step will reduce fading and stress. If the quality of the screen-printed design is important to you, reduce its contact with the washing machine to ensure that the ink won’t be strained.
- Dry on low heat.
Heat is your t-shirt’s worst enemy. In addition to avoiding hot water, keep your tee away from high-heat dryer settings. Instead, tumble dry low to prevent damage as well as shrinkage.
