You may still be wondering as to whether or not you can wash your dress shirts at home. Despite what your dry cleaner may tell you, the “crazy” notion of taking care of your own shirts is not just a myth. If done in the right way, you could save hundreds of dollars per month per year.
Washing Your Dress Shirts
It’s actually quite simple but it will take some patience on your part, especially if you have a ton of dress shirts. First and foremost, pay close attention to the tag to see what care instructions recommend for treatment. A quick rule of thumb is to wash dark colors in cold water and light or white colors in warm to hot water.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Separate the colors and toss them into the washer with a small dose of detergent and run a standard cycle.
2. Transfer the pieces into the dryer and select a “Delicate” or “Gentle” which will run for approximately 12-18 minutes. Essentially, you are aiming to wick away some of the moisture during the tumbling phase without completely drying out the garments.
3. Take out the shirts and immediately iron while still damp. You can also hang them up to air dry, but you will still have to deal with the wrinkles.
