‘Unshrink’ Your Clothes

Have you made a mistake and your trousers shrank in washing? Take a few easy steps to ‘unshrink’ them!
It was a painful moment in my life when I saw my favourite tracksuit trousers shrink to mini size. I know it can happen to anyone, I tossed all the clothes into the washing machine but I didn’t notice I set too high temperature. Some clothes survived but when I saw my ruined trousers I nearly cried.

I desperately started looking for some ‘‘Unshrink’ Your Clothes’ techniques and I came across Jillee of One Good Thing. Once her garment fell a victim of her mistake too so that’s why she presented quick-witted way to sort this problem out. You soak the item in water with a baby shampoo, then roll it in a towel and the thing which seems technically impossible becomes real.

If however, your problem is too long trousers have a look at some other post entitled Hem Jeans Fast & Easy.
