Moisture-wicking fabrics are the best for workouts, but once you've come home and taken a shower, there's nothing quite like your favorite classic cotton t-shirt for running errands, walking the dog, making dinner, or lounging around at home. Cotton jersey knit t-shirts are soft but sturdy, and hard to beat for everyday comfort. Cotton t-shirts can be machine-washed on a normal or gentle cycle with standard detergent, and most labels say that they can be dried in the dryer. But hang them to dry if you're concern about shrinkage; cotton t-shirts do tend to shrink slightly when machine-dried.
