I washed my favorite pair of slouch jeans but then ruined them by leaving them in the dryer too long. Any ideas on how I can unshrink them? Will leaving them in cold water and then air dry work?
Any help would be great.
Once threads shrink there is nothing that will bring them back. If you want to be sure that clothes will not shrink, use cold or luck warm water for washing. The water does not clean the garment - it's the rubbing that does the job.
