    Default Holes in all my t shirts!

    All my tshirts develop tiny little holes in front sometimes only after a few wears. At first I thought there must be moths in my wardrobe and actually bought things to hang in there to get rid of them lol..... In complete denial as I have now realised its from where my jeans button or belt buckle rubs.... My tummy being erm a bit more.... rounded than it used to be!! I went through all my clothes yesterday and virtually every t shirt is ruined including a fairly new esprit one that was really expensive (for me). I dunno just feeling a bit frumpy at the moment and this just caps it off.

    Does any one else have this problem??!

    Yeah, I get the holes at the height of my kitchen benches! Since discovering the reason, I try not to lean on the bench so much and my tshirts have survived longer!

    I do. But I hadn't actually thought about the buttons on my pants etc. I thought I must have been catching on something like the kitchen counter.

    We had carpet bugs and we didnt see them in our clothes cos they are quite small but all our clothes got holes on them. Tiny holes that got bigger.

    Check the edges of the carpets in a dark spot (under bed etc)

    They are a pain in the butt.

    Yep, I have many tops that I only wear around the house now because of this.

    Yep it's kitchen benches. Particularly stone ones. I googled it because it annoyed me so much. Sucks

    yep, kitchen bench here too. It took me ages to work out why only my tops were getting holes in them. I now wear an apron when I am making dinner or spending any period of time at the bench.

    Happens to me too, drives me crazy. Stone benchtop and changetable I think. Glad to hear I'm not the only one.
