do dryers make the shirts shrink or what
The reason I would never put my shirts in the dryer is that you will ruin them if you use antiperspirant. The aluminium compounds in 99% of antiperspirants mix with sweat and can stain your underarms an unpleasant yellow, but this is made far worse if you stick your shirts in the dryer - the staining is "baked" into the shirts and cannot be removed.
I learned this the hard way when I was living in Singapore and would easily go through 10 shirts in 6 months.
