But as soon as you receive your package you'll notice something: natural cotton wrinkles.
Quite often modern clothes, especially 100% cotton clothing, are treated with toxic chemicals in order to prevent wrinkles. But we want to keep it as natural as it gets! To protect not only yourself but everyone in the production line, The Perfect Shirt is free from any harsh chemical treatments. This means wrinkles in your shirt are perfectly normal, and in fact is the proof that your shirt is eco friendly and free from harsh chemicals. All 100% natural cotton will wrinkle, unless it’s been treated with chemicals you likely don’t want touching your skin, or the skin of the people who are responsible for producing your clothing. With The Perfect Shirt you aren’t wearing a synthetic material shirt laden with toxic chemicals made in a sweatshop under unsafe conditions - and that’s awesome.
If you’re not into the laid back, just rolled out of bed look below are some ideas to reduce wrinkles without loading your shirt up on fabric softeners with unpronounceable chemicals or bringing out the iron. Remember, wash your shirt in cold water, remove it promptly from the washer and hang it neatly to dry.
DIY Wrinkle Release Spray
Not only is this solution natural and effective, it’s also extremely inexpensive. Simply combine in a spray bottle one cup of distilled or filtered water, one cup of distilled white vinegar and a few drops of your favorite essential oil for a touch fragrance. Our favorite is lavender oil, which is colorless and avoids any discoloration to your Perfect Shirt. Shake the ingredients to combine.
Hang your shirt and spray your new solution in a sweeping motion. Lightly tug at the shirt to pull out the wrinkles. It will be slightly damp, so hang it to dry - outside if the weather is nice. Treat your ethical fashion kindly with eco friendly products, and it will treat you kindly back.
Steam is extremely effective at releasing wrinkles. Hang your shirt in the bathroom while you shower and close any windows or doors. Lightly tug at the shirt to release wrinkles after a few minutes, and by the end of your shower you’ll have a wrinkle free shirt. Doubling up on the duties your water performs - what could be more eco friendly?
