Do any of you guys do anything special to keep your shirts looking fresh and nice other than throwing it in the washer because they either fade or shrink?

delicate cycle, cold cold water. not a lot of soap, extra rinse.
and i put my shirts in a hang dryer, and the rest (denim, socks ect ) in the tumble dryer on low heat.

It depends on one of two things, how much do I like the shirt and what exactly is on the shirt. If its a shirt I love, I baby the shit out of it; delicate cycle, little agitation, small amount of detergent and softener and i'll use the air dry cycle on the dryer. If the shirt has a design to it than I flip it inside out and keep it that way for the entire wash and dry. If its just some regular shirt I do the normal cycle, cold/cold, normal dry, etc. Some more advice I could give you, get a good detergent and softener, and use it sparingly, more does not equal good.

noob question here:

why use softener? Isn't that defeating the feel and crispyness of new t-shirts? Why would I want to accelerate softness process of my shirts and make them feel like I've owned them for years while I haven't?

Wash or dry clean
When the shirt is expensive the first thing I do is looking at the lable, whatever it says, hand wash drying instructions etc. Then I decide what to do. If I really like that shirt, I follow instructions, if not then simply put it in washing machine on delicate cycle with a little soap and no bleach, especially when it's color t.
If you do like your shirt so much and it's not a matter of money, then bring it to the dry cleaners.

Have a great day

Depending on the shirt I will hand wash them or take it to the dry cleaners. If it's just a T I don't really worry about...normal settings.

yea cold wash, dark formula detergent.

as far as drying goes, i tumble (no heat) for 20 minutes before hang drying so my shirts dont get too wrinkled.

is there any way to prevent fading on a white shirt with black print? I have a 10deep shirt I haven't worn, yet, because I don't want it to fade. Any thoughts would be helpful.

1. Always wear an undershirt / layering shirt to prevent the transfer of sweat directly to the shirt in question. (esp. white shirts)

2. When washing in a machine wash with a full load of like colors and add 1/2 - 1 cup of vinegar to the first wash and again at the last rinse cycle. (I swear by this your clothes will come out brighter, fresher and cleaner)

3. Hang Dry Only [!]

4. If you are really afraid hand wash but remember to let the shirt soak for a few minutes in the soap solution.

5. Even after all your hard work clothes will fade naturally, the chemicals that cause the color eventually degrade and are not permanently bonded to the cotton / fabric, and the sun rays reacts with dyes to degrade them and 'cause bleaching. So, cop 2x of your favorite shirts then rock 'em and wash 'em cause that's why you bought them for.

Thanks for the info. I'm assuming that you use white vinegar when washing the clothes, right?
