‘Have you no­ticed how the T-shirts you buy nowa­days wear so much quicker? How can I pre­vent this?’

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - EXPERT ADVICE -

YES, WE HAVE! Many of to­day’s T-shirt fabrics are much softer and sheerer than in the past, and so they wear quicker. But­tons and studs on jeans and pants are the most com­mon cul­prits for those tiny holes you find, but a wash cy­cle that’s too hot and too long can also place un­nec­es­sary pres­sure on del­i­cate fabrics. If they’re not too dirty, con­sider wash­ing sheerer shirts on the del­i­cates cy­cle.
