How To Make Your T-shirts Feel Vintage Soft

A few weeks ago I let you guys in on a little secret about steak. I told you that salt is all you need to turn even the cheapest cuts of mean into tender and juicy steaks. Well it turns out that salt can tenderize more than just meat! (Really, what can’t salt do?!)

Today I want to share a new discovery that I’m REALLY excited about. All you need is some good old table salt and a bit of warm water to make new, starchy t-shirts feel as soft and fluffy as your favorite vintage tee. I’m not entirely sure how this process works, whether the salt is actually breaking down the fibers of the shirt, or if it’s just stripping away a starchy finish… but regardless of how it works, the point is – it DOES work. Really well!

Give it a try for yourself. I think you’ll be just as impressed as I was!

Submerge your t-shirt in the salty water, and leave it to soak for three days. (Yes, this method does require a bit of patience, but it’s well worth the wait!)

Return to your bucket once per day to stir the shirt and water around a bit. After a couple of days, you may see some salty patches on the shirt, or salt crystals forming in the water, but don’t worry! It will all come right out in the wash.

After three days have passed, remove your t-shirt from the salty water and toss it into your washing machine.
