    Why oh why did I ever order white embroidered shirts. I'm incapable of keeping a white shirt clean. The thing that sucks is incant bleach it because of the embroidery. Why is life so hard?

    Forget the shirt Damon.
    It's the determined facial expression that clearly spells success.

    I read a book called "Why people buy". The book discusses how certain colors effect people's buying decisions. Blue implies trust and authority. That's why IBam is known at "Big Blue".

    Most of my polo shirts and T-Shirte are blue. I also have a bunch of black shirts. I like black the best because it hides the dirt and sweat.

    I made the same mistake as well, they were good for a days work before becoming stained.

    Just got these shirts this week. They are popular down here. They are called "wrap-wear" and you can get them to match the wrap on your van.

    I just ordered a few for the grandkids as well.

    White is considered a rag in the T-shirt industry... Nice when new, but good luck keeping it clean...

    What did the color book say about "black"?

    I had to change my shirt to a blue one. I dropped an Egg MacMuffin on myself.

    Damon, get some double strenght cleaning vinegar. On first wash, set your machine on cold, add 2 cups vinegar, add some liquid tide, and run all your coloured shirts. Every wash after, add liquid tide, 1 cup Borax( either coloured or white shirts). Heck, try it with all the laundry in the house...I think we’ve talked about this before...... JUST TRY IT......
