September 01, 2023 • Jamie Dorman

Have you ever pulled your favorite sweater out of the washing machine only to find it drastically smaller than before and asked yourself, “Can you unshrink Clothes?” The frustration of shrunken clothes is something many face, but there is a solution! We have a tried-and-tested hack that will show you how to unshrink clothes and bring them back to their original size. With just a few simple steps, you can rescue your beloved garments and avoid bidding them farewell.

Step 1: Gather Materials

To embark on this magical unshrinking journey, you'll need some basic items that you likely already have at home. Grab a bucket and a bottle of hair conditioner. Yes, you read that right – hair conditioner can work wonders in unshrinking your clothes!

Step 2: Prepare the Hair Conditioner Solution

Fill the bucket with warm water, ensuring there's enough water to submerge the shrunken clothing fully. Now, add two tablespoons of hair conditioner to the water. The hair conditioner will act as a fabric relaxant, making it easier to stretch and reshape the garment.

Step 3: Soak and Relax

Gently place the shrunken garment into the bucket filled with the hair conditioner solution. Allow the garment to soak for at least 30 minutes. During this time, the hair conditioner will work its magic, softening the fibers and making the fabric more pliable for stretching.

Step 4: Rinse and Wring

After the soaking time is up, take the garment out of the bucket and rinse it thoroughly with clean water. Be gentle while rinsing to avoid damaging the fibers. Once rinsed, carefully wring out the excess water from the clothing.

Step 5: Gentle Stretching

Now comes the fun part – stretching the garment back to its original size. While the clothing is still damp, begin stretching it gently, focusing on the areas that have shrunken the most. Pay attention to the sleeves and collar. Don't be afraid to pull the fabric lengthwise and widthwise to achieve the desired size.

Step 6: Hang and Dry

After the gentle stretching, hang the garment to dry. Make sure to pull and adjust it gently while hanging to maintain the stretched size. As the clothing dries, the hair conditioner will continue to do its job, helping the fabric to relax and retain its new shape.

Step 7: Enjoy Your Unshrunk Garment

Once the garment is completely dry, you can bask in the satisfaction of a successful unshrinking mission! Your beloved clothing is now back to its original size, and you have earned a valuable skill along the way..
