mysterious holes

Every tank top I own develops these holes.
Even some of my t-shirts.
For the life of me, I can't figure out where they come from, or what causes them.
And a little annoyed.

Have you ever had this happen?
Any ideas what could be causing them?
I've ruled out a belt buckle - I rarely wear a belt, and it's higher than where a buckle would rub...
Maybe it happens in the laundry?
Or maybe I have an evil, little gnome living in my closet that likes to gnaw holes in my shirts.
I should set a trap.

I just wish I knew what caused them.  Grrr.

    1. Anna, that thought did cross my mind, but it's ALWAYS in the same spot and nearly identical in every shirt! Are moths OCD? And I haven't spotted any in our closet...

  2. I get them too! I think it's just crappy fabric flaws that must get bigger in the wash?

    1. Such a bummer, isn't it?! It happens, mostly, to my shirts and tanks from Old Navy and Target (Mossimo brand).

  3. I think they're from zippers on your pants. I always zip my pants before washing them and it cuts down if not eliminates the number of wholes in my tops!

    1. I never thought of that! Guess I'll start zipping my pants before I wash them to see if that solves the mystery! Thanks! :)

  4. Yes, from zippers! We wash almost all our pants separately from everything else just for this reason! Hasn't really happened since we started doing that, and we always zip zippers (but don't button buttons unless on jeans because it weakens them and they fall off faster!)
