Fashion Ed’s Tips On White Shirt Care


pintrest (2) Everyone has the same mission and that is to keep their shirt as white as possible. We let you in on a stylist secrets on how everyone is caring for theirs:

  1. Number one rule is when washing your shirt keep it separate from all coloured clothing to avoid colour transfer.
  2. Pre-treat stains before you wash white items. That red wine stain? Don’t let it stay over night. Your shirt needs to be treated immediately.
  3. Experts say to always use hot or warm water when washing your shirts to kill the stain bacteria.
  4. Pay attention to care labels, although the fabric may be white but the style of shirt may require particular kind of wash such as dry cleaning or hand wash.
  5. Try update your shirt every second season. This helps to give the rest of your shirts a break. A white shirt is an investment piece. So buying two per season is not a waste of money.
  6. We know you love your shirt, but wearing it the whole week is not going to work.
  7. Buy a good quality shirt for longevity.
  8. All great white shirts retire at some stage; make peace and let go.
