Be a Hero and Make Easy Instant Pot Chicken Ramen in Under an Hour

There’s something special about a brand-new white T-shirt that just sets a day off right. For years I have cycled new white T-shirts into my wardrobe more than any other color, partially because I love the way they make me feel. But it’s also because I’m always staining them while out and about enjoying my day. It’s because of this reason that I have learned not to get too attached to any white T-shirt, predicting all too well its inevitable fate.  

With my tragic relationship with white T-shirts in mind, I’m sure you can imagine how much my interest was piqued when I heard about a new anti-stain ramen T-shirt being sold by Japanese brand Ziorich. According to the brand, it was designed so that you can slurp your ramen noodles without the risk of ruining your shirt. It sounds too good to be true, right? Well, according the brand, absolutely not.

As Japanese cuisine tradition calls ramen-lovers to slurp noodles in order to enjoy the dish at its greatest potential, the method usually means you’ll create a bit of a mess. (From personal experience, I can’t tell you the number of times I have tried so hard to be careful while eating ramen, only to still walk away with at least one drop of broth on my shirt.) But with this new ramen T-shirt, those of you who experience the same mishaps will only need a little bit of water and a napkin to remove broth stains effortlessly. Now, I don’t know about you, but that sounds excellent to me.

Although the shirt has not been tested with other types of food (I’d love to see it with pasta!), it is still expected to hold the same anti-stain capabilities. In other words, it just might be worth a try!  

Ready to get your own brag-worthy shirt to wear ASAP? The Anti-Stain Ramen T-Shirt can be found at the brand’s website.

But if that still isn’t getting the job done, the former curator of The Met Costume Institute swears by this stain remover — and something tells me maybe we should too.
