A simple way to shrink clothes that are too big is to wash them in cold water and heat them in a dryer. You need cold water, laundry detergent and a dryer to accomplish this task.
- Wash the garment
Wash and rinse the garment in cold water.
- Shrink the garment in the dryer
Once clean, put the garment in the dryer, and turn the dryer on high heat. Check the garment occasionally to avoid excessive shrinkage.
- Line-dry if needed
Remove the item from the dryer once it has shrunk to the right size. If it is still damp, hang it on a clothesline to dry.
