How To Get 200+ Washes Out of Your T-Shirts
Courtesy of a reader, this is how he makes his t-shirts and undershirts last through 200+ washes.
Hand washing is the key to 200+ washes. Use baby shampoo in cool or tepid water and air dry on towel so shape is never compromised.
A box fan will greatly speed this [drying time] up.
One can also lay T-shirt on towel, and roll it up inside to wick away moisture.
Linting represents the mechanical destruction of your clothes. Machines scrub clothes against each other, strong detergents and rubbing and scrubbing over bend and twist weak fibers.
High heat causes more degradation.
Lint means death of clothes.
BTW not washing your lucky T-shirt or jeans is a sure fire way to attract moths.
Moths can smell human oils oxidizing on stored unwashed t-shirts, a moths antenna can smell a single molecule of oxidized skin oil.
A moth has the most sensitive nose in the world located on its antenna
If the above is true, theoretically, you could wash a t-shirt once per week, every week, for 4 years, and it would still look as good as new.
That would be cool.
