I know this is actually accurate advice, but I hate it. I can wash 8 shirts at once. There is little chance I will notice when they get to the point of being 'slightly damp' and no chance that the others won't have dried completely by the time I work my way through them one at a time. I do my own most of the time (with a spray bottle in hand) and once in a while just take them to the cleaners when I'm not feeling like doing them myself. b After you wash your 8 shirts, wrap them with a large towel. Approximately 24 hours later, they will be "slightly damp." Timing wise, your milage may vary...but the towel method, or even using a plastic bag, works pretty well.
