Why do I constantly have small holes in my T-shirts?

Question by Baby3 | 2018-04-29 at 18:07

Lately, I find more and more strange little holes in my T-shirts. Since I pay more attention to them, I discover increasingly more. Recently, it even affected a T-shirt that was only a few days old.

Can someone tell me where these holes can come from? I do not think I have moths.

The holes in the T-shirts can have several reasons. At any rate, you're not the only one who has this problem.

  • Belts: Some belts have adornments or other sharp, pointed or spiky edges that are constantly scratching the T-shirt worn over them. If the holes are located more or less at the level of your belt loop, it will probably be one of your belts causing the holes.
  • Washing: Sometimes the washing in the washing machine is the reason for the holes. If you wash clothing with pebbles, palettes, or other sharp appliqués along with your T-Shirts, they may rub and rip on your shirt in the wash basket. Therefore always wash such clothes on the left.
  • Zippers: Even zippers can cause problems in the washing machine, especially if they are remaining open. Therefore always close the zipper and, if necessary, wash your problematic clothing one by one and separated from others.
  • Washing Machine Sometimes it is the washing machine itself that causes the holes. Only one sharp edge in the washing drum and the laundry is ruined.

By the way, if you are wondering why most of the time T-Shirts get broken while jeans stay okay, it is because the shirts are often made of a cheaper, thinner material and are therefore more prone to a hole.
