Most of the men often question the same thing that their readymade or custom dress shirt lose new look and durability after using for some time. The main thing that men do not realize is that the dress shirts are unlike T-shits and casual shirts, dress shirts need proper care. Caring about dress shirts is like having an investment, giving a little bit of attention will make it durable, attractive and new in years to come.

Remember to remove all kinds of stains right after they occur, as by leaving them unattended will make them permanent. Spraying perfumes and colognes directly on shirts make permanent stain, try to keep good distance while spraying or spray it on hidden areas of shirt. If men take proper care of dress shirts while washing, ironing and folding, it will make their shirts last quite long.

Dress shirts washing

If you are not one of those persons who buy new custom dress shirts every after three months then you probably learn how to properly wash your dress shirts. Most of the men prefer dry cleaning to avoid the hassle of washing, drying and ironing. However, dry cleaning is not the best option to clean shirts. In dry cleaning, there are different kinds of chemicals and starches are used, which in long run or with excessive use damage the shirt fibers. If you are in a condition that you cannot wash your shirts all by yourself then strictly advice the dry cleaners not to use any kind of chemicals and keep the starch quantity to minimum level. This will minimize the chances of damage done by chemicals.

Whenever you buy custom dress shirt, carefully read the tag inside the shirt before usage. All kinds of instructions will be mentioned on the tag regarding washing, ironing and other precautions. If it is mentioned that the dress shirt is dry clean only then only dry-clean it. If it is vice versa and only hand wash is recommended then follow the instructions to retain shirt quality. if your shirt is of light color then there must be instructions of washing with light colors only as dark colors some times loose their colors and light colored shirts are ruined. General washing tips are to wash shirts in luke warm water, never use hot water. Also, try to keep the washing detergent quantity to minimum.

Ironing Dress Shirts

To have a crisp and good looking custom dress shirt, one must wear properly ironed shirts. Ironing is no doubt one of the biggest hassles for men because most of us actually do not know how to iron a dress shirt. Actually, it is not such a big hassle, once you have learnt how iron a dress shirt then you will happily press your dress shirt. For a perfectly ironed shirt, you must iron each parts of dress shirt separately. Before starting the process, read the tag and set the temperature according to the fabric. Remember never to set iron on high temperature, if you are unsure about the fabric then set iron on minimum temperature, as high temperature will instantly burn the shirt fabric.

Before ironing the shirt, make sure that there are no stains, as ironing will make stains permanent. For easy ironing, it is a good option to make the shirt little damp that will remove wrinkles easily. Begin the process from collars and move to shoulders’ front and backside. Unbutton the cuffs and start ironing sleeves, be careful about crease of sleeves as most of people end up making more than one crease that looks extremely awful. Then move to shirt’s main front body while watching for already ironed parts. In last, iron the backside of shirt, then give a general look to whole shirt, and watch out for any parts remained un-ironed. Always watch for seams and try not to over iron them, as this will damage the threads.
