I think it happened to everybody to wash your favorite (or not so favorite) piece of garment, and to shrink it, because you set-up a higher temperature to the washer. But there is method that will save your clothes, which I tested already and it works. I shrunk my favorite wool sweater, and I thought it’s lost, but it wasn’t.
The best way to un-shrink clothes involves a solution that definitely exists in your bath already: hair conditioner.
– hair conditioner
– a towel
All you have to do is fill the sink or a basin with lukewarm water, add some hair conditioner (almost 2-3 tablespoons) and leave the shrunk clothing item in this mixture for 15-20 minutes.
Don’t rinse the clothing item, just squeeze it very well after the mentioned time.
The garment is placed on the towel, taking care to stretch the material in all directions.
Then leave the clothing item on the towel until it dries. The clothing item will be exactly like it was before it got shrunk.
