I launder and press my own shirts. I'm still working on my system. I have a top-loading washing machine, which I have heard is rough on clothes. I tried handwashing but found it too time-consuming and it didn't get my shirts as fresh as the washing machine. Putting them on plastic hangers and waiting till they are damp is best, but using the steam button on my iron and spraying with a light mist works well, too. I spend only a few minutes (10 or so) on each shirt, while watching TV or listening to music. I don't really care if it's perfect. One thing I have found is that the sleeves wrinkle the easiest, so it's best to do those last and then immediately hang the shirt up. "Does anyone else out there in SFland get more than one wearing of a shirt per cleaning?" I do, sometimes. Depends on the weather and how much I go outside. Since I live in a dry climate, I sweat less. Also, I found that I don't get armpit stains since I stopped using anti-perspirants.
