Preserving graphic t-shirts is essential in my house. I have two young boys close in age. So, when my oldest son outgrows his favorite t-shirts I know they are in good shape for his little brother to use next. The key to preserving images on graphic t-shirts is: wash and dry them inside-out. Most people know this and may have read it on the label but, most people don't do it. It really does work. It will help prevent the images from cracking or peeling. So, next time you do laundry, take the time to turn all your graphic t-shirts inside-out and you will be extending the life of your or your child's favorite tee.
