Best Way Of Shrinking Shirts
Materials Required: 
  • Washing machine
  • Dryer
  • Iron 
  • Before attempting to shrink your shirt, make sure that it is not already shrunk. If the shirt is pre-shrunk, it would be difficult to shrink it again.  
  • Once you have determined this, it is time to shrink the shirt. The best way to do it would be to wash the shirt in a washing machine, in the highest possible suitable temperature. This would allow for maximum shrinkage. 
  • Make sure to wash the shirt in hot water. Though it is the tumbling action of a washing machine that causes the shirt to shrink, hot water adds to the effort. 
  • When the shirt has been washed, keep it in the dryer at the highest temperature. Make sure you leave the garment in the dryer for a slightly longer period time than is usually required.
  • If you are still not satisfied with the shrinkage, repeat the whole process again. However, this time instead of drying the shirt, iron it at a higher temperature, until it becomes completely dry.
  • Now, all you need to do is to wear your shirt and flaunt it!
