Ok, you know that one shirt? The one you wear at least once a week because it looks great and is so comfortable? You might not even have noticed that the collar is beginning to fray or that the armpits are yellowed. Listen man, unlike that t-shirt you wear only on Saturdays (not judging here – I once wore the same pair of joggers 27 straight Saturdays), dress shirts have an expiration date.
Maybe not an ACTUAL expiration date, but, according to the Dry Cleaning & Laundry Institute, something along the lines of 35 to 50-ish washes. 50!!! As in, you wear that shirt once a week and in a year- ONE MEASILY YEAR-your shirt has seen better days. You know those little pinholes that somehow appear and make you think you have a moth infestation? Or how that once bright pink is now a sort of sad salmon color? Yep: that shirt has expired. Nothing can bring back that shirt- it’s time to let it go.
So now that you have some new, bright, pinhole-less shirts-how can you keep them looking sharp?
And, of course, we recommend professional- by the experts at Faye’s Laundry & Drycleaning- laundering to keep that gorgeous shirt bright and stain free for all of it’s useful life. Our ecco-friendly, biodegradable formulas are designed especially with shirts in mind.
