I get the inside out part.... Honestly I don't mind taking the time out to even wash certain items by hand in the sink... Thats how my mom would wash certain higher quality items when i was a kid.... Im just worried about using hot water and bleach, would I have issues? I also hang dry most of my s**t to prevent shrinkage or fading..... I rather go the extra mile to keep my s**t sharp than rush clean something and ruin it....
I use the coldwater detergent so that I can still get the clean I need, but I don't have to run up my electric bill using hot water. And I don't use bleach on graphic tee-shirts. Again, you can find detergent with bleach for colors that won't ruin your shirts.
the bag I mentioned protects your shirts from the machine's agitator with can wear your shirts down. But just truthfully, they're cotton and it's only going to be so much you can do and so many wears you can get before they wear out. But the bag thing has worked for me.
