Ever bought a wool sweater that was too large? Or an oversized cotton T-shirt? Don't worry: There are ways to fix that and we're going to explain how to shrink clothes. But not all methods work with all fabrics.
Different materials require different methods of shrinking, so it's important to determine what the garment is made of before you try shrinking it. For example, cotton shrinks the best, polyester shrinks less, while leather and fur will get ruined rather than shrink.
While most people are trying to avoid shrinking, we're going to take a look at some ways to shrink clothing. Note: For cotton, wool and polyester, if the process doesn't shrink the garment enough, follow the directions for pre-shrunk and older clothes later in this article.
