Best Way to Wash T-Shirts for Longevity

A person sits relaxed on the floor between rows of washing machines in a laundromat, smiling with eyes closed, appearing content or daydreaming.

T-shirts are a staple in many people’s wardrobes, but frequent washing can cause them to lose their shape and color over time. Fortunately, by following a few simple care instructions, you can keep your T-shirts looking fresh and new for longer. In this article, we’ll share the best way to wash T-shirts for longevity, using the care instructions recommended for Bella + Canvas 3001 T-shirts.

  • Sort Your Laundry: Before washing your T-shirts, it’s important to sort them by color. Separating lights and darks will prevent colors from bleeding and help maintain the vibrancy of your T-shirts.
  • Pre-Treat Stains: If you have stains on your T-shirts, it’s important to pre-treat them before washing. Apply a stain remover to the affected area and let it sit for a few minutes before washing.
  • Use Cold Water: When washing your T-shirts, use cold water instead of hot or warm water. Hot water can cause shrinkage and damage to the fabric, while cold water is gentler and helps preserve the color and shape of your T-shirts.
  • Use a Gentle Detergent: Choose a mild, gentle detergent that is suitable for use on delicate fabrics like cotton. Bella + Canvas recommends using a phosphate-free detergent to help protect the environment and your T-shirts.
  • Avoid Bleach and Fabric Softeners: Bleach and fabric softeners can be harsh on T-shirts and cause them to lose their color and shape over time. It’s best to avoid these products when washing your T-shirts.
  • Turn Inside Out: To minimize wear and tear on your T-shirts, turn them inside out before washing. This will help protect the outside of the fabric and prevent pilling.
  • Wash on Delicate Cycle: Use the delicate cycle on your washing machine to help protect the fabric and maintain the shape of your T-shirts.
  • Air Dry: Instead of using a dryer, air dry your T-shirts to avoid shrinkage and damage to the fabric. Lay them flat or hang them up to dry, and avoid direct sunlight, which can cause fading.

By following these care instructions, you can keep your Bella + Canvas 3001 T-shirts looking fresh and new for longer. Remember to always read the care label on your T-shirts for specific washing instructions and to handle them with care to ensure their longevity.
