My kids are at the age where every trip and experience is somehow made by a trip to the gift shop so they have a souvenir to bring home from the experience. And if not “made” then at least complemented in a tangible way that only spending a little extra money for the memories will do.
On our trip to the beach this summer, the girls decided their souvenir this year would be an airbrushed shirt. We’ve seen these shirts throughout the years at the gift shops and even big box stores on the beach but have never bought one. Somehow this year, the girls really honed in on these colorful creations and had the best time going through every design possible before selecting their favorite one.
True to form, Brady chose a Pokemon inspired design and Colby picked a super feminine looking dog. You would have thought the 45 minute wait for the shirts to be completed and ready to be picked up would be the longest part. But instead it was the warning that to preserve the shirt and avoid the colors bleeding, we needed to wait at least 5 days to wash the shirts once wearing. Well, considering water abounds at the beach that meant limiting its wear so we could wash it right away
if when the girls got something on their shirts like the pasta sauce you can see on Colby’s shirt in the photo above (after washing photo below).
After spending years on the beach and having my own airbrushed shirts throughout the years, I knew how to wash airbrushed shirts but realized that not everyone would know these tricks to keep their beach souvenirs looking vibrant and like new as long as possible. Don’t let your vacation memories fade, just follow these simple steps on how to wash airbrushed shirts below!
How to Wash Airbrushed Shirts
1. Wait at least 5 days before washing your shirt.
2. Turn airbrushed shirt inside out and place in washer.
3. Select and use cold water.
4. Add mild laundry detergent and Carbona Color Grabber to machine. Color Grabber is a microfiber sheet that helps protect the other items in your load from color runs and bleeds during the wash cycle. This wonder microfiber sheet catches and absorbs loose dyes so they don’t end up staining your clothes. This is a laundry must-have (not just for airbrushed shirts but for all of your loads) because it protects laundry from color-run damage simply by
tossing the sheet into the wash.(Tip: if you have a front loader, make sure to put your Carbona Color Grabber sheet in a mesh laundry bag so you don’t clog up your machine.)
5. Tumble dry low and remove promptly.
