I recently got some tshirts for my son's high school xc team. They are very scratchy even after a couple of washings. Would a couple of days soak in a salty brine work? Or what else can I try?

I posted this in the completed clothing section by mistake. This is probably a better place for the question. Sorry for the duplication.

Thanks, Greenseeds

2 Cups White Vinegar

2 Cups Baking Soda

4 Cups Water

Another option is hand wash it with some human hair conditioner and then wash it normally. I pre-wash all the socks I knit with conditioner and it really does reduce that "yucky wool feeling."
