Is anyone else sometimes terrified to wash their favorite clothes just in case they shrink?! I’ve heard the story one too many times: “My husband tried to be helpful by doing the laundry but he laundered my shirt that was hand wash only!” Finally, I’ve found a cure all for this common disaster.
Here’s what to do:
Take the shrunken item and put it in a bowl of ice water. Make sure the water is very cold before you put the clothing in. Then, add a cup of hair conditioner (any brand). This will reverse the effects of the shrinking. Note: anything rayon should be hand washed regardless of what the label says because rayon shrinks very easily!
Now go have fun reviving your favorite clothes!
