It’s a pain to see clothes getting shrunk, however, in some cases it is possible to restore the original size of clothes. Hence, you shouldn’t lose hope.
If your favourite sweater just shrunk after wash or your denims doesn’t fit you anymore due to shrinkage, we can help.
So, without any further ado, let’s see how you can undo the damage of your laundry mistakes in simple ways.
There are two different ways to unshrink clothes depending on the fabric, we will see both of them one by one.
Things you will need
In case this doesn’t work or there is massive shrinkage, you can try the following method.
Pro-tip: The areas which feel very tighter needs to stretched more, hence, focus more on such areas.
Caution: Do not use the clothes dryer once you are done. Heat may cause shrinkage again.
Things you will need
Take a large bucket which have enough space to submerge the entire garment. Leave 1/3rd of the bucket empty so that the water doesn’t come out after submerging the garment.
Borax and white vinegar can soften the fibres. This allows the fabric to stretch and get back to its original shape. Take 1 tbsp (15 ml) of white vinegar or 1 tbsp (25.6 g) of Borax to the bucket of water. Stir the water with your hands or any clean plastic stick until borax or vinegar is completely dissolved.
Do you know we can clean all your clothes without any damage?
Soak the shrunken garment in the bucket containing water + borax/white vinegar. Make sure it is completely submerged and leave it for at least 10 minutes. Make sure you do not leave it in the water for more than 30 minutes.
Take the garment out of the bucket. Lay it on a clean, flat surface and roll it into a ball. Assert slight pressure while rolling and after making a ball of the garment. This will drain out excess water.
Do not twist or wring it harshly otherwise it may over-stretch and not regain its original size or shape.
Lay a large towel on a clean, dry, and flat surface. Spread the garment on the towel. Now, tug on shrunken areas. You can keep stretching the garment by hands. Make sure you don’t stretch or tug rigorously. Put something heavy such as paperweight on the garment to prevent it from shrinking again.
Pro tip: Work in small areas if the wrinkles are very tough or there are some areas that are hard to iron. Some of these areas can be puffed sleeves or the waist of a pair of denim or trousers.
Why don’t you prefer laundry service that guarantees ZERO shrinkage?
Always air-dry shrunken garments. Even though it is not ideal to hang dry woollen clothes, however, if the garment has shrunk a lot, you can hang it while its wet. The water can weigh down the fabric and cause stretch.
However, if your concern is minor shrinkage, do not hang dry the garment. You can use a drying rack or simply lay the garment on a clean, dry surface.
Pro tips to prevent shrinkage
In order to prevent your other clothes from shrinking, you must be careful while washing them. In case you cannot focus on every single step of washing and drying, it is better to let someone else do the laundry. Because, even slightest of laundry mistakes can ruin garments. Hence, you can rely on professional laundry service providers.
