Default Why do shirts get turned inside out in the washing machine?

It's annoying having to turn everything right-side-out after washing

just turn them inside out and they'll be the right way after the wash is done.

no, it helps against fading of t-shirts w/ a screen on it...I usually do it, but I don't wear many t-shirts like that...and the ones I do are for working on cars or around the house...

Tiny Microscopic Laundry Fairys.. they are mischievous little things arent they. You can probably counteract with a teaspoon of arsenic in your wash.. that should kill most of them. Keep up the fight

My shirts never turn inside out in the washer or dryer. The only way they come out inside out is if I put them inside out.
