So this was washed for the first time on a cold wash with other white (mostly threadless) shirts and when it comes out all the glow in the dark ink turned brown!
Nothing else ran so I have no idea what happened.
Is everyone else's shirt ok?

I need to make a shirt with me on it with glow in the dark ink.

Brown in the dark is a brilliant idea!

you should post some pics of it...

Espoz

I'll post pics later on today.
Aww I loved that shirt, I would buy another but it might happen again :/

Espoz

whoa! no kidding!
did you put it in the dryer or line dry it?

Espoz

Line dry.
I still have no idea what happened, I mean I have a couple of other glow in the dark shirts and they are fine :/

Espoz

Has anyone elses gone brown?

Bramish

I like how that looks.

chelly

does it still glow?

Espoz

It still glows a bit, but not as strong as before.

Espoz

Is everyone else's shirt fine?

that's so weird!

well, its cool to see now where the glow in the dark ink is in relation to the color design.

You should have taken out the turds from your washing bachine before hand. Noob error.

Espoz

What were you doing in my washing machine, Tonteau?

Tonteau

Looking for the toilet.

Espoz

Easy mistake to make.

I'm wearing the shirt right now and came to post asking what to do about washing glow in the dark stuff...

Guess I found my answer.....

Espoz

I emailed Brianne and she said my shirt may be defective as they have no one else with the same problem.
I'm posting it back and going to hope for another :D

I washed mine today.

It's fine.

It's just a little faded. A little too much for an inside out, cold, low tumble wash.

Bleh.

Whoa... does anybody remember the Kool-Aid that started out one color when it was a powder but then changed colors once you added water? This is like the t-shirt version of that.

Espoz

Mine is now in the post back to Threadless. Hopefully it will still be in stock when it gets to them.

Hey.. I got it too, and yes, It changed colour after a few washes..

But then again.. Its cheap..

Freyanator

I just got mine out of the wash. and it changed colour but just to this disgusting grey. I think yours actually looks cool but mine just looks gross

No account?
