Holes in Tee Shirts?

Please can someone answer my question? Why are there tiny holes appearing on all of mine and my son's cotton tee shirts. They appear in exactly the same spot once they are a couple of weeks old.

I have cleaned out wardrobes and drawers and sprayed with neat lavender oil, but no luck. I have owned t-shirts down through the years and I have never seen the likes of it until the last year. The funny thing is I live in a newly built house so that rules out damp or moths.

I will be looking forward to some answers hopefully.

I have no answer for you, but I have found that some kinds of soft cotton shirts get small holes, usually on the tummy area very quickly, whereas I have some t-shirts that are over 15 years old, and they don't seem to develop holes. I suspect it is the quality of the cotton. The softer the shirt, the easier it seems to have developed holes. It does not seem to have anything to do with the price of the shirt - the soft shirts are no less expensive.

You didn't say where the 'exact same spot' is. Could it be something he is sitting in or on, or leaning against, such as a desk or dinner table?

Is he playing video games? It may be the controller for the game. Hope you find the answer.

You didn't say where the holes are. If they are in front then there might be a rough place under the counter in front of the sink that is catching on the clothing. It is also possible that you have a rough zipper that is catching on the clothes during the wash.

My daughter nearly tore her hair out with the same problem. Do you have Caesar Stone or marble benches. We even tried a stocking on the edge of the benches and it didn't snag. A friend of her had the same problem so they got the people out who made the bench tops and they smoothed the edges and no more holes in tops (They looked just as though something was eating them).

Thanks very much for such great suggestions. Just forgot to mention that the holes are in exactly the same spot on every tee-shirt. Its just below the belly button area. I thought about the quality of the cotton also. I wouldn't wonder at the holes if they were randomly spread around.

I have also noticed the same on two my cotton tee shirts in the very same area in the last 2 days so this is now getting very frustrating!
Thanks again everyone.

OK, I think after many years of dealing with this crazy problem. ...the definitive answer has been found. It MUST be the kitchen work tops and the hob. Cleaning (with chemicals) and cooking (especially spitting fat) are at exactly the tummy level, where the holes are. The answer? Always wear an apron!
