If you haven't experienced the miracle of non-iron shirts, you simply have no idea how perfect these shirts look even after 3 wears. My shirts look immaculate after a day or work. It just makes no sense to bring them to a dry cleaner. The only stain is on the collar after about 2-3 wears. The rest of the shirt is still immaculate, and look like it's just been dry cleaned. With cloth tape, I think I can extend the cycle before some dirt finally shows up on my cuffs. I will keep SF updated on my experiment. Oh, I'm not interested in washing my clothing in my sink. If you sweat or spill a lot, this won't work for you. Good point. I just don't like washing dress shirts. Maybe I'm just not used to it, b/c you can't do this with regular dress shirts. Or maybe b/c I think the collar stain won't come out 100% like at the dry cleaner. ever hear of detergent??
