This clever tip revives clothes that have spent too much time in the dryer.
Maybe your spouse did laundry and put something in the dryer that wasn’t supposed to go, or you simply got distracted and didn’t hear the timer go off. Accidents happen. If your favorite cashmere ends up looking like it belongs on your 6-year-old niece, remain calm. There is a solution, and it’s fairly simple.
First of all, take a deep breath. There’s no reason to dump that knit in the donation pile—yet. Try this trick to bring your sweaters, cotton T-shirts, and jeans back to their original state:
1. Fill a sink with lukewarm water and a capful of baby shampoo or hair conditioner.
If you’re unshrinking a wool sweater, you may need more conditioner, about 1/3 of a cup. You can also use a gentle wool wash like Eucalan or Woolite for delicates.
2. Add the sweater and let it soak for 10 minutes.
This will relax the clothing’s fibers.
