This is what happens to your Monzo shirt when your housemate takes it from the ‘delicates’ pile and washes it at 40 degrees
Ouch… I’ve done that before with a tumble dryer. Will have to be careful when I eventually get around to buying a Monzo tee
Was it turned inside out? I find that always helps.
I think it’s marked wash only, or 30 degrees, something like that. The girls I live with keep a delicates pile for the weekend wash, but I guess they took exception to my black XL t-shirt going in with their smalls
It probably was, most of my tees go in inside out. I think the temperature killed it!
From the photo, it looks like a pretty cool “distressed” effect tbh. I bet that’s devastating though
Huh I regularly wash my Monzo tees at 40 degrees then tumble dry them on high. Never had any issues.
Yeah, 40 degrees isn’t a “hot” wash, it’s pretty standard
Well perhaps it was the 1400 rpm spin speed as opposed to the 800 rpm on a delicates wash.
Either way my tee was wrecked on its first non-delicates wash
Just wanted to warn others before suffering the same fate!
@BobT PM me with your size and address and I’ll see what we can dig out for you!
This happened to me too! First wash at 40 degrees and it came out just like that.
I’ve bought another but now a bit too precious about it and not even worn it yet! Will stick to 30 degrees though in future!
Worth mentioning is that Rapanui (who prints and sells the t-shirts for Monzo) will give you £5 credit if you send back by Freepost any t-shirts you buy from them when you no longer want them.
