Did you know there are ways to unshrink your clothes? So if you’ve put your favorite denim jeans or knit top in the dryer for too long or washed them in hot water instead cold and now they feel snug, these tricks can help you do what you might’ve once thought was impossible…

Unshrink Knits

  1. Fill you sink with a quart of warm water.
  2. Add a tablespoon of baby shampoo or hair conditioner then mix.
  3. Submerge your garments in the mixture and let soak for 39 minutes.
  4. Wring out as much water as you can.
  5. Roll the garments between two towels, wring them out once more while gently stretching them out.
  6. Allow garments to air dry.

Unshrink Wools & Cashmere

  1. As with knits, you will fill your sink with a quart of warm water.
  2. Blend in a tablespoon or borax. Don’t have Borax? Substitute for a half quart of vinegar.
  3. Let garment soak in mixture for 25 minutes.
  4. Wring out most of the water.
  5. Proceed to roll between two towels. While the garments are still wrapped up, wail the towels around to natural stretch the fibers. Do not pull as this will only damage the garments.
  6. Allow to air dry.

Unshrink Denim

  1. Denim requires more space to soak so you’ll fill your bathtub about a third of the way full with lukewarm water.
  2. Put your jeans on and fasten them as you would if you were wearing them.
  3. Put yourself and your jeans into the tub for your jeans to soak.
  4. Move around in the tub and focus on the areas you are hoping to stretch. This process takes about an hour.
  5. Get out of the tub and allow the jeans to air dry.
