    Follow the directions given on the shirt's label.  If it were me, I would wash it on a warm/cold gentle wash cycle because of the spandex, and then dry on a knit cycle.

    Read the care label on the garment.

    There is no reason to waste hot water by running it on the warm water cycle.

    Cold water will get it clean.

    With 12% spandex I doubt this will shrink.

    Those materials do not shrink, warm water okay, and tumble low sounds like a good plan (to preserve the spandex).

    There should be a label advising how to wash. But synthetic material doesn't shrink anyway. So a normal wash at 30 C would be OK.  Tumble drying is fine too.
