3 Helpful Dress Shirt Hacks

July 15th, 2016
    Here are a few tips to maintain the great look of your custom dress shirts:

    1. Go Grey: Wear a grey undershirt or t-shirt under white dress shirts. It more easily matches your skin tone and is less visible than white on white.

    2. Remove that Ink Stain: If you get pen ink on your shirt, follow these steps to remove it. (1) Mix equal parts rubbing alcohol and vinegar in a bowl and dab the mixture directly on the stain, leaving it on for at least 5 minutes. (2) Cover the affected area with table salt, leave it for about 5 minutes, then gently scrub the stain with a clean toothbrush. (3) Rinse with hot water until the stain is completely lifted. (4) Wash or dry clean the shirt to get it looking good as new.

    3. No Iron? No Problem: Here are a couple solutions to remove wrinkles if you don’t have an iron handy. (1) Boil water in a metal pot, pour it out, and use the bottom of the hot pot to smooth out the shirt. (2) Boil water in a kettle and hold your shirt above the steam to get rid of any creases. (3) Hang your shirt in the bathroom while you take a hot shower.
