Preventing Polo Shirt Collars from Creasing

This is continuing to drive me crazy. The collars on polo shirts crease or curl up, destroying the look of a shirt. I've tried 100% cotton, 70-30 cotton, poly etc. It doesn't seem to matter which. Even two of the same shirt, One will crease, one won't. Is it the washing? Or what?

As I am folding these shirts, I button all the buttons and fold them as they do in the stores. Make sure the collar isn't rolled and stack them on top each other. Hope this helps, works like a charm for me!

My Husband wears golf shirts, inside golf magazine they said to wash inside out shirts buttoned up. Try this, I hope it works.

I too wash my polo shirts inside-out and only dry to a slightly damp feel. Once out of the dryer, I put them on hangers (inside-out) and button the top button. This method prevents the hangars from creating the 'hanger bump' on the shoulder areas and I don't have any issues with the collar. I believe quality of the the shirt makes a difference too...I only buy Land's End Supra-pima...best shirt for the $$

Go to your fabric store and buy collar stays. They are little spears of plastic that go inside the collar points and keep them straight forever. The people there will tell how.

Hi, I've had this problem for quite some time. I found a web site that sells collar stays specifically designed for polo shirts. They work like a charm.

Check them out at www.golfgifts4u.com You can order them in sets of 5. Basically each stay is reusable about 10 times. Hope these help.

I know there are collar styx or what ever you call them. but that just keeps the tip of the collar from curling. That's an easy fix by ironing. I'm looking for something, or someway to get rid or prevent the crease from around the collar. So that my collars don't look flat. After a while of owning my polo's every collar creases like it was ironed flat and it looks sloppy. Please help. Email me at nathanderr2000 AT yahoo.com

I think that overdrying polo shirts in the dryer causes the collars to curl. Tumble for about 10 minutes then allow to dry on a hanger. You need to do a bit of smoothing and tugging; have the button area and the backing pulled straight. Sometimes they will still need a little touchup with a steam iron.

The cheaper brands look like a rag no matter what you do. Buy good quality shirts and they wash up better.
