We’ve all been there: You take out a load of freshly dried laundry and your heart sinks as you realize your favorite item of the lot is now half its original size. Normally Goodwill would be getting a new donation just about now, but we're now armed with an easy hack to unshrink the piece within minutes. Simply soak the item in a mixture of water and three tablespoons of hair conditioner for five minutes. Then lay the piece out on a towel and carefully stretch it back to its original proportions. Voilà! Your shirt is good as new, and the dryer has claimed one less victim. PS: This technique works best on cotton or knit garments. Make sure to test a small patch with the solution before soaking to make sure your garment is compatible.
Pin the image below so you'll always have our hack for how to unshrink clothes handy; then continue to shop some of our favorite knit and cotton pieces.
