I had one for years. Never used it. As in...never used it.

So I was cleaning out some stuff, saw it way back in a cupboard, and thought, "Why keep it?"

Everything I wear is wash and wear. If I remove the items from the dryer and hang or fold, they are not wrinkled. If they get wrinkled from being folded too long or being in the basket too long, toss back in the dryer with a damp towel for 5 minutes. No more wrinkles!

That is about the only way to preserve a shirt from becoming old and worn out.
Yep.

T shirts are "underwear", just as socks and, well, underwear are. They're designed to eventually be worn out and replaced.

I just wash and sometimes airdry certain clothing. Mostly not a lot of effort goes into it and once an item is worn out ill toss it. I never buy white anymore, not pure white. It would loose that bright white so fast! I also never need to iron. I dont even have an iron..

I wash all white t shirts in hot water, detergent bleach and I add 2 cap fulls of Murphys oil soap, been doing this for years.
never put white T shirts in the dryer, it turns them brown, clothesline always.

It depends on the fabric material. If it's a poly/cotton blend it won't shrink. I have many American Apparel t-shirts which I wear daily and are going 5+ years now. I don't really consider t-shirts as "underwear". I wear fitted T's on a daily basis at home or when out. Never been a fan of button-ups which really don't suit my style or personality.
