Summer is here, custom-made cotton T-shirts are the most common short-sleeved T-shirts, which are very popular. The fabrics of pure cotton T-shirts feel thick, soft, non-slip, breathable and sweat-absorbent. Improper washing is very easy to deform and shrink!
First of all, we need to understand the fabrics of custom-made cotton T-shirts. The main fabrics are count and weight.
The count of T-shirts represents the thickness of the yarn. Common T-shirts are generally 21 and 32 counts. More than 60 counts are high count T-shirts. T-shirts with more than 100 counts are very rare. A simple way to look at the quality of cotton is to directly look at the count of T-shirts. The higher the count, the better the quality of cotton. Generally more than 50 pieces are very comfortable.
The weight of a T-shirt is generally used to indicate the thickness of the fabric. The larger the weight, the thicker the clothes. The count is proportional to the weight. The weight of a T-shirt is generally 160-220 grams. Too thin will make it transparent, and too thick will cause heat.
So what is the correct way to wash custom-made cotton T-shirts?
Daily machine washing is a very common thing, but it is also a serious link that causes clothing to shrink. Therefore, it is best to wash clothes by categories. Those that are not suitable for machine washing must be hand-washed or dry-cleaned. You can refer to the clothing label tips.
Although hand washing is the best way to clean, you should pay attention to the method. Don’t rub the T-shirt repeatedly. This will also deform the T-shirt. It’s best to rub it gently. You can wash the serious stains first. Rinse whole again.
Custom-made cotton T-shirts should not be soaked in water for a long time. Soaking before washing is also a step that everyone is accustomed to do. Note that the correct soaking time should be 10-15 minutes, otherwise long-term soaking will cause the dirt to be back absorbed by the clothes fibers, resulting in fibers. The texture becomes soft and shrinks.
After reading this, I believe that everyone, like the editor, has a certain understanding of the washing method of pure cotton T-shirts, and will no longer be afraid of deformation and shrinkage!
