Choose the right detergent and washing temperature:

Use a detergent that's suitable for your T-shirt's color and fabric type. For most T-shirts, a cool or warm wash cycle is sufficient. Hot water can damage some fabrics and cause shrinkage.

Use the right washing cycle and machine settings:

Check the care label on your T-shirts for specific washing instructions. Use the appropriate cycle and machine settings for each T-shirt to avoid damage.

Avoid common washing mistakes:

Don't use too much detergent, as it can leave residue on your T-shirts. Don't wash your T-shirts with other clothing items that can damage the fabric, like zippers or Velcro.
