What am I doing wrong with my clothes? Brand new t-shirts look like this after a few months. I never iron them just hang them and leave them to dry. I only wash on 40 C.

What sort of water do you have? Maybe its hard water.
>>
>>1593457
Do you use any fabric softener? Maybe try washing them with colder water as well. Looks like the shirt is made from a couple of different materials and one of them is shrinking more than the other.
>>
>>1593464
It most certainly is hard. Shouldn't laundry detergent have something in it to soften hard water?

>>1593469
It is 100% cotton, supposedly. But now that I checked the label that is stitched into it, it says wash on 30 C. Goddamn.
>>
>>1593477
You dose the detergent according to water hardness. There's probably a chart on the back or in your washing machine manual.

>now that I checked the label that is stitched into it, it says wash on 30 C. Goddamn.
What the fuck what did you wash it on? Why would you wash it on anything but 30°C?
>>
>>1593514
not op
i wash everything at 40
i dont even bother reading the labels
as long as i gets the shit stains out of my undies i don't care.
>>
>>1593457
you have to shake it really hard (sacudir in spanish) before hanging them.
>>
>>1593547
You hang up your t shirts?
>>
>>1593457
You are taking your shirt off incorrectly, stretching the collar out
>>
You've got a big fucking head.
>>
Put the shirt on over your head
You dont step into it like the dresses youre use to wearing
>>
>>1593457
>hang them and leave them to dry
This is your problem. I'm betting you put it on a hanger. That will stretch out the neck of any t-shirt, polo, or knit. If you have to hang it upside down with clothespins.

$5 says you put your arm through the neckhole to put on your deodorant/antiperspirant.
>>
>>1593457
looks like you are stretching it out bro
if ALL your shirts look like this after a few months and its ONLY the neckhole that looks like that u gotta be doing something to stretch it. maybe its the way u put it on or the way u take it off, but id guess that if something in the wash was doing it it would happen to the arm holes too at the very least

No, I don't.

>>1593717
It's most visible on the necks, but I noticed these waves or whatever on this hoodie along the zipper as well. Not sure if it's visible enough, it's 1 AM.
>>
You sweat a lot. That's what ruin my shirts like that.
>>
>>1593457
Water is too hot, try cold wash
>>
>>1593724
Zippers get wavy because cotton shrinks but metal doesn't.

well there's your problem, wash on 30.
also don't stretch out the necks
also buy decent clothes. like a fucking shit with buttons.
>>
>>1593457
That shit is stretched out big head mof
>>
>>1594213
Not allowed buttons in my line of work
>>
>>1593457
Try using heavy water.
>>
its HALF WASHED....
>>
>>1594446
Do you mean I'm not using a long enough washing program?
>>
>>1593457
Do you sleep in them? Maybe don't. I have a big head and f things up pretty quickly but do a bit better if i make an effort not to fall asleep on the couch or something. Im thinking that they don't make em like they used to.
>>
>>1593715
Who in their right mind would ever do that?
