    is there any benefit to not putting button-ups and nice polos in the dryer and just letting them air dry?

    I'm going to assume you didn't mean dress shirts. Those should be dry clean only so you don't pwn the collars. As for button-up t-shirts and polos... if you don't mind a little fading and softened collars I'd just throw em in the dryer. not worth the hassle of hanging em separately imo.

    I put all mine in the dryer now since I lost weight and if they're cotton they shrink enough to make them still wearable, but I would say they wear out much quicker and dark colors fade a lot.

    But on the other hand, I hate ironing and if you dry them and then hang as soon as they're outof the dryer you won't have to iron.
