Be careful about shrinking t-shirts. Depending on how they're built, they could very well twist.
If they are a tube construction with no side seams they will almost certainly twist. If they have side seams and the weave on the front and back panel is in the same direction then they will twist a bit. If the front and back panels have the weave in opposite directions then they will still deform a little, but not as much. (07/13/2008)

Washing with salt (about a half a container) will also help shrink. (07/13/2008)
