Shampoo Is All You Need To Unshrink Your Clothes
Before you throw away a shrunken item of clothing, immerse it in a baby shampoo solution to soften the fibers and stretch them back to their original shape.
To use this trick, fill a sink or tub with lukewarm water, then add a cap of baby shampoo to make a soapy solution. Fully submerge the shrunken garment for 30 minutes to an hour.
During this time, gently massage the fabric so the shampoo penetrates each thread. After an hour, remove the garment and softly squeeze out any excess moisture.
Lie the garment flat on a large, clean bath towel and roll the towel up with the garment inside to absorb excess moisture. Then, unroll the towel and stretch the softened fibers.
Once done, lay the item flat to dry. You can use a fan to expedite drying, but be sure not to put the garment in the dryer, as it could undo your progress in restoring its size.
