For shirts like these to age properly they literally need to be cared for by . . . 1 - putting in a pail of siloxane, swished around by hand, 2 - soaked in a fabric relaxing solution, 3 - soft water hand swish with SanitoneÂ enzyme detergent, 4 - hung to dry, 5 - sprayed with soft water and put in a plastic bag overnight, and 6 - handpressed . . . At least that is what I have learned from Kabbaz, Stubloom, and Laliquette. Or, you can send them to Rave Fabricare . . . - M See, there is some worth to these forums after all . . . Third option: send them to your local cleaners at $3 a pop. They're just shirts and life will go on.
