I wash them and use vinegar instead of fabric softener. Dry very lightly or just hang. I have several that look good after a couple of years (polyester shirts)

I would love anyone's tips for reducing static in polyester pants

How often are you wearing/washing each shirt?

Some of the ones i wear to work maybe once every 3-4 weeks for short sleeve ones. I have too many short sleeve shirts. Some of the dressy ones i wear more often because I wear them to work. The sporty ones only get used at the range or playing and there are a few that are headed to goodwill because I don't wear them often, so I am whittling down my supply.
I do as the person above says- turn inside out, flip up the collar, cold wash. the wife runs a lot of them through the dryer if i don't pull them out and they end up fine.
I have Ashworth, nike, UA and a few adidas but mainly wear the ash worth and UA.

check this thread out regarding the collars. I stopped buying golf polos with ribbed collars because they roll up mid round no matter what I did. Nike was the main culprit. Now all I wear are UA and Ashworth polos.

I wash my golf shirts on gentle cycle, cold water. Then I put in dryer on low heat and take them out early while slightly damp and hang up to finish drying. I have no collar issues and they seem to wear well.

On thing I notice is I now purchase mostly Ashworth shirts and their colors last. When I had Dryjoy shirts the colors would fade. The collars would fade more than the rest of the shirt and look weird.

I always hang mine over the railing above the stairs when I get home to change. I never throw them in a hamper. Wash all my golf clothes on gentle, cold water. Hang them right away on hangers and let them air dry.

I have shirts that still look brand new from a couple years ago. Of course, that could be because I buy new shirts what seems weekly because smalls are always on clearance at GG.

For me, a cold water wash and hang dry on a rack or hanger does the trick.

I cold wash all my colors and hang dry. I feel like all my clothes shrink in the dryer...

For poly shirts:
-Turn inside-out
-Flip collar up
-Machine wash gentile cold/cold
-Tumble dry low
-Onto a hangar AS SOON as they are done drying... don't let them sit.

For cotton blends
-Dry cleaner... I like the pressed look and don't want to risk the shrinking.

Never really had a problem with washing but I have a question for you guys. How in the heck do you guys fold up your shirts when going on a trip. Every time I go on a golf trip I end up having to get wrinkles out of some of my shirts. I mostly wear Adidas shirts but I also have a variety of everything else.

i roll them up instead of folding and they come out good enough

I no longer buy cotton shirts (for many, many years) they don't wear well or wash well. I get on shirts that are the new wicking synthetic material, they keep their new look.
[/quote]

Me too. I have some shirts that are well over 5 years old and still look good. I can't remember the last time I bought a cotton Polo.

I wash my shirts after every time I play golf in them. Here's the trick -- turn them inside out and flip the collar up, that will prevent them from rolling. Wash in cold water only, then tumble dry or hang. No heat.

Boom. That's the way i do it too, most of my golf shirts still look perfect after many wears.

I'll jump in and try and help a little bit:

1) it doesn't matter what temperature the water is for wrinkles. That only matters from a color standpoint.
2) for wrinkles, spin level matters more. The higher the spin level, the more wrinkles. Spin basically involves how much moisture is eliminated from the clothes in the washer. The higher, the more compact and twisted the clothes will become.
3) turn your shirt inside out, button shirt up, and flip the collar out.
4) don't need to hang dry if it's poly or poly/span. Just dry on low.

I never even considered cotton on the golf course. heck, my underwear are a polly blend by jockey. I need some air flow down there in the summer months.
