There is no way that you can afford to keep buying school uniform shirts every month because your little munchkins ruin them. But let’s face it, it’s not always the munchkins that ruin the shirts. When doing laundry, do you do some of these “no-nos” to the clothes? Here are some tips to keep those shirts looking their best.
-No matter what the public wisdom is, DON’T dry clean your shirts! The chemicals used in this process can actually damage the fabric of the shirt and cause it to deteriorate faster.
-Separate the darks from the lights in the wash. If you have enough school uniform shirts to make a full load, try to make this all you wash together. It shouldn’t be too hard. They have to wear one every day!
-When you’re ironing the shirts, make sure there are no stains on them. If there are, the heat from the iron could permanently set the stain into the fabric.
-You should also always iron the shirts when they are damp or spray water on them. Not only will this prevent you from scorching the shirt, but it will also help you get the wrinkles out better!
Keep those shirts looking new and fresh even after several washes!
