It’s review day here at Becoming Homegrown and today I am going to be speaking about t-shirts and laundry detergent. Yes, that is right everyone, hang on to your hats, it is that exciting!
In the past couple months I have received a few opportunities to review items and I apparently forgot that I actually signed up for some. I was reminded of this fact when I received the shirt from TShirt Printing.net in the mail a few weeks ago! What a nice surprise! A free shirt, to review….
Tshirt Printing is an online store that is located in the United Kingdom and they specialize in….Printed T-Shirts! Amazing! Tshirt Printing.net creates fun shirts that are readily available for purchase (as the one seen below) or they can create a personalized variety. Ya know, in case you want a bulk amount for your family reunion, graduation, bar mitzvah, etc. I think you get the idea.
When I received my t-shirt and I opened the package, I instantly remembered why I jumped into another review. There was a monkey’s face involved.
Is this the color I was expecting?! No. I was expecting the gray one that was posted however who am I to sneer at a free monkey shirt that no one else has?! I instantly put it on and my husband told me that I really could light up a room and even though I agreed with him, I was not too disappointed! It actually fit fairly well. I usually choose fitted shirts and this regular t-shirt did not swallow me whole. I did not look like a beached whale.
Now, I did wash it with my Purex Complete with Zout before really wearing it around and to test out it’s “Pre-shrunk” claim. Did the Purex do a great job? Yes. Is Purex awesome in every way possible? Yes. Did the shirt shrink? A little. It was a little tighter but not a gigantic difference.
The color remained in tacked after the washing. I was actually hoping it would dull out a bit but alas that monkey and it’s BRIGHT blue background stayed solid. It is still bright after two more washes. You can see me from outer space if I went outside.
Now, in all honesty the t-shirt is pretty good. Will I wear this shirt out? Probably not. It is too bright. The shirt itself is good quality, it has not shrunk again and the coloring does NOT fade. If I needed to create a my own shirt, maybe with BECOMING HOMEGROWN stamped across the front, I would probably head their way.
So my rating from 1-10 (10 being the best) probably around an 8. Will I be returning to Tshirt Printing.net site? Maybe. I am really starting to like that Becoming Homegrown t-shirt idea. Who wants one?!
