- Technical Fabric Shirts: These shirts made of Cool-Max, Dri-Fit or other sweat-wicking fabrics are what I wear walking, so they are welcome until the body odor builds up beyond all laundering techniques. How to Get Body Odor Out of Exercise Shirts
- Cotton or Cotton/Poly Short Sleeved Shirts: These go to the charity bin unless I have a walking buddy who wants them. I don't wear cotton or cotton/poly shirts for walking or housework. Unless the event has sentimental value, I have no qualms about donating these to charity.
- My Old Club Shirts: It is hard to just toss my Tough Trail Trompers shirts, although the club folded years ago and the shirts are cotton.
- Special Event/Series Shirts: I now have a series of shirts from Breast Cancer 3-Day Walks and the Discovery Walk Festival. Those events have special sentimental value, and once in awhile I have the urge to "show the colors" and wear them.
- Historic Shirts: I have a series of About.com shirts from the past 10 years, including shirts from the days when we were Mining Co. I also have shirts I created for my walking bulletin board group. I can't bear to part with any of those.
Some walking friends have created t-shirt quilts or pillows of their sentimental t-shirts. I have difficulty with that idea as I don't know where I would use or display such a quilt or pillow. The same would be true of making shadow boxes, wall hanging, or other decor from the t-shirts.
