Yes. That's why I specified "all fabric bleach". It's much gentler on fabric than chlorine bleach.

T-shirts wear out. After being worn a lot, white tees rarely look good at the end of the summer. Wash in cold water, use a good detergent, and buy a few of them if you like to wear them often.

Stop right there! Are you suggesting that there is a human out there who actually irons their socks?

It must be the same one I knew who ironed her sheets.

Some people say hand washing with cold water is the best method but then what about the trouble of ironing the shirts. So in that case, if I take the shirts to the dry cleaners, what can I tell them to do to prevent the shirts from shrinking or looking old?

You stick it in an airtight bag in the closet and don't wear it.
That is about the only way to preserve a shirt from becoming old and worn out.

I like my t-shirts looking new, white and smooth. That means the t-shirts generally have a short life cycle.

OCD is a wonderful thing!

In my line of work I have encountered so interesting people.
