Care guide for the Light T-Shirt

April 11, 2023

Only a light bit of care required here.

Nothing new under the sun

T-shirts are as easy to wash as they are to wear. The Light T-Shirt is no different even though you do need to know what you're doing because they’re in direct contact with your skin and you tend to wash them more often than say a sweater.

We recommend washing your tee inside out with other similar colours at a maximum temperature of 30°C. That way, they won’t shrink and if the washing machine's drum causes any damage or colours bleed, it won’t be visible.

We recommend liquid (and organic, bleach-free) detergents because the powdered ones usually leave marks on dark colours.

How should it be dried?

Never wring it out by hand

Machine-spin it limiting the rinse program to 800/900 rpm max to not damage the cotton fibres, to get rid of excess water and then dry it flat in a well-ventilated place, away from direct sunlight.

The iron law

Once it's dry, iron on a low heat avoiding the seams, so as not to scorch the cotton. These are particularly visible on darker colours.

Placing a layer between the iron plate and your trusted tee can’t hurt either.

Over to you!
