How to Maintain T-Shirts with 60’s Band Images

If you intend to “machine wash” your band tee shirts or any other kind with your favourite illustrations, turn them inside out before putting in the washing machine. This will protect the prints from being ‘scoured’ by other textiles rolling around with it in the washer.

Your washing machine should be run on cold or warm water and must be on a gentle wash setting. And never use washing detergents that contain even the tiniest amount of bleach.

Just like a pair of jeans, the' humble' shirt that’s always 'there for you' will have designs and styles that come and go with fashion trends. However, the classics such as the vintage band tee shirts will always remain timeless. Good reason why they are keenly sought after.
