Cheap uniform tops? More expensive? What to do?

Posted by homersgarden (My Page) on

My son starts Kindergarten this year and will be wearing white tops for his uniform. My question is do I go with more expensive tops that have stain resistant stuff (Gapshield at $15 a top) or a cheaper brand (Target at $5). What would you suggest? Experience?

I'd go with the cheaper shirts. If you have dirt and stains, scrub with a Fels Naptha bar or give a good soak in Biz or Oxyclean. Moms have been doing this for years without paying 3X the price for shirts.

the more expensive kind will last longer

It may last longer, but kids grow too fast. I go with Socks12345....cheaper shirts and a Fels Naptha bar (usually found on the TOP shelf in the laundry aisle of WalMart or the grocery store....and mine lasted for a long time!)

If you line dry and wash on a gentle cycle, even inexpensive uniform tops will last longer. Buy 100% cotton, poly blends pill and stain.
