Okay, I know this is a weenie topic, but I'm paranoid about putting my arfcom shirts in the drier because I'm afraid they'll shrink.  (I had a bad experience with a Def Leppard t-shirt in high school).  I know they say they're pre-shrunk cotton, but I've seen those shrink before.  

Has anyone put theirs in the drier?  Did they shrink?  Please put my mind at ease.

I've never had a t-shirt that didn't at least shrink a little in the dryer.  Sorry hope it's a little big.

I've never done laundry in my entire life, so I can't help you.

Mine shrunk some but I ordered it larger than I needed it with this in mind.

Well, I could stand to lose a few pounds, but that wouldn't help with the sleeve length on the long-sleeved shirt.  Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Being completely self sufficient, and doing my own laundry, here's what I'd do.

Anything I fear might shrink, I wash in cold water, then hang dry.  While it's wet, stretch it a little with your hands to prevent a little shrinkage.  When it's dry, throw it in the dryer with a fabric softener for about 10 minutes.  It should come out nice and soft with no shrinkage.   [:)]

Preshrunk means, WILL SHRINK EVEN MORE IN DRYER.
