Let us guess how often you wear your softest T-shirt… A lot? We knew it. Now, what if all your tees could be that comfortable? It's not such a ludicrous suggestion with our easy at-home trick for how to soften your T-shirts. That's right—there's an easy way to DIY your way to a closet full of tops so soft that you'll never want to wear anything else.

So what's the secret to making your brand-new T-shirts feel lived in? It's easy. All you need are water and salt (yes, really). Make a simple solution, submerge your tee, and let it soak—that's all it takes. Once the shirt has had time to sit in the solution, wash it as you normally would and then wear away. Ready to give it a try?
