The Cheapest & Quickest Way To Unshrink A Sweater

It’s official: I’m a sweater-killer. I’ve lost track of the number of sweaters I’ve had to say goodbye to because I’ve thrown them in the wash (or because I’ve snipped a snag). The final straw was when I accidentally washed a brand new sweater from & Other Stories. When I took it out of the machine, it looked like it would fit an American Girl doll. But instead of throwing it out, I decided to try to bring it back to it’s former full-sized glory. Here are the steps I followed:

Fill a sink to tube with lukewarm water and add a cap of baby shampoo (hair conditioner will also work).

 Soak the sweater in the soapy water for at least 10 minutes.

Wring out the excess water.

Roll the sweater in a dry towel and squeeze to remove as much excess water as possible. You want the sweater to be damp, not wet.

Place the sweater on a different, dry towel. Gently tug at the sweater to stretch it back into the shape. Let it lay flat to dry.

You can also use this trick to bring your cotton t-shirts and jeans back to their original size. The sweater is still a little snug, but it’s definitely an improvement. Plus, cropped sweaters are in style anyway!
