    Soak the finished t-shirt in 2gallons water & 1/2 cup salt. Make sure all the salt is dissolved in the water before immersing the garment. Let soak for 1 hour or so then rinse in cool water & let hang dry. Always wash the garment in cold water as well.

      Does the water need to be hot warm or cold or does it even matter ???

    I've washed items like this with vinegar to help set colors.
