Best way to care for polos in the wash? I presume they dont need to be laundered.

I'm thinking cold light wash, delicate detergent, tumble dry low for a few minutes, then hang dry?

Any tips are appreciated.

I use that conditions with my shirts, but when it comes to polos I'm not that careful. 30ºC if dark, 40ºC if light and regular washing (and ironing).

Make sure you unfold the collars when you wash and hang to dry.

i wash in cold then hang dry, at least until i forget to hang it up. then the proverbial dryer cherry has been popped and i just toss them in from there on out. but i do at least try to unfold the collar before going to the dryer

I'm just timid because I've had some mishaps with the washing/drying with my burberry, lacoste, rlpl polos in the past and the fabric losing it's luster. I'll try out the easy eashing and hang drying. Appreciate the tips fellas.
