What can I do to his shirts?

Almost all of my dh tshirts have little holes or maybe bigger holes due to being wash in hot water and bleach as time goes by the shirts become weak and tear easily. They r still good shirts except for the holes. he says to just sew them shut. IDK :/

  • I would buy new ones. If you try and sew the old ones there are going to be little puckered places all over his shirts!

  • I don't sew.. So I just buy new shirts.. lol

    If I find a shirt with holes, it gets tossed and I replace it.

  • he can double up the shirts..... some people buy ripped stuff already its a "fashion" statement

  • sewing them shut makes em look even weirder... you can use cool patches LOL, or a fabric that matches close to it and patch it. but yeah.. cold water wash... and you can use hydrogen peroxide instead of bleach

  • I repurpose mine and DH's shirts into clothes for the kids and buy new for us. If he really wants you to just sew up the holes I would recommend not just sewing the hole shut as that would leave little puckers all over, but instead cut a patch from a matching or contrasting color and sew it on. If you really want to safe the shirts then stop bleaching them and find an alternative method of cleaning them that isn't so hard on the fibers. if these are just undershirts then I wouldn't worry about the little holes too much though.
