What's the best way to preserve the quality of white v neck shirts from American Apparel? As in, how do you prevent them from shrinking or looking old?

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?

No one I know irons t-shirts... nor do they get them dry cleaned.

All clothing looks older as it gets worn.
And when it wears out, you buy new!

It takes one minute to iron a t-shirt. It's no trouble at all, IMO. But then again, I iron everything...

I didn't say it was trouble... only that no one I know does it.
Still, ironing will not prolong the life of a t-shirt.

It's a T-shirt. When it gets worn out, you buy a new one.

I'm not implying that you did.

The OP said it.

My point is that if handwashing is preferred to prolong the life of the t-shirt, it would look better with a light iron, which takes 1 minute, rather than wearing it rumpled.

Oops... missed that. Sorry


Do you really iron your V-neck underwear?
The OP also mentions handwashing in cold... that would not cut the sweat of the men I know.

I wear my t-shirts as outerwear, and yes, I do iron them. I iron any outerwear that is wrinkly.
