Stop looking like you just rolled out of bed (even if you did).
Harsh heat and rough tumbling beats up your shirt, fading the colour and accentuating wrinkles. Wash your favourite cotton tees in cold water. Line-dry them or use a low-heat, low-tumble dryer setting. Remove them as soon as they’re dry.
Hold the shirt out in front of you, pinching it about 2.5cm from the collar on each shoulder. (Place each thumb on the back of the shirt and the rest of your fingers on the front.) Give it a couple of aggressive shakes to soften the larger wrinkles.
Use your pinkie and ring fingers to push the sleeves into the back of the shirt, folding them around your middle fingers. Now find a flat, clean surface. In one smooth motion, fold the shirt in half as you lay it front side down.
Press your thumb into the shirt as you release your other fingers from under it to keep the fold. With your hands free, tuck in any loose corners or sleeves and smooth the fold at the bottom of the shirt to prevent further creases.
