Shrink Solution is a liquid mixture that will reverse any shrinkage that being thrown into a hot dryer has caused your wool or cotton clothing to endure. It'll work its magic on any piece of clothing, regardless of whether it's a dress, a pair of pants, a sweater, or something else, as long as it's made of wool or cotton. Each set of Shrink Solution consists of two bottles, one containing a solution made specifically for cotton and the other a solution specifically designed for wool.

How It Works
When exposed to heat from your dryer, the fibers in a cotton or wool garment will tighten up, moving closer together and consequently causing the garment to shrink in size. However, when you place a shrunken garment in a tub of water and Shrink Solution together, its fibers will relax, making the garment return to its original size.
How to Use (Step by Step)
- Prepare Tub of Water
To begin, prepare a large plastic tub of water. Ensure that it's big enough to hold the garment that you want to treat with Shrink Solution when that garment is spread out.
- Add Solution
The next step is to dump some of your Shrink Solution into the tub along with the water, making sure that you're using the right blend for the fabric that you want to treat. Ideally, you should be using an entire bottle of the mixture.
- Drop Garment in Tub
Next, you can drop the garment to be treated into the tub. It should be spread out, not balled up or folded.
- Leave for a Half Hour
For 30 minutes, leave your garment to soak in the tub with the liquid mixture.
- Let Dry
After your garment has finished soaking, you must let it air-dry. Once it has dried, it should be back to its original size and therefore should fit you as it did before you put it in your dryer.
- Preserves Favorite Clothing
You may be devastated if you accidentally shrink a favorite item of clothing by running it through the dryer, or if a family member or roommate does this for you. Fortunately, you won't need to throw out that item or wear it while it's too tight, as Shrink Solution will reverse the shrinkage.
- Works Quickly
A half hour is not a long time to take out of your day in order to preserve the ideal condition of clothing that was expensive or has sentimental value.
- Need One Bottle Per Garment
In order to treat one shrunken piece of clothing in one tub of water, you'll need to dump an entire bottle of Shrink Solution into the tub. That means you'll be buying new bottles quite frequently if you unintentionally shrink your clothing quite often.
- Requires Use of Water
One use of Shrink Solution will require the use of a fair amount of water along with it ( enough to cover a garment in a large tub ). Hence, if you use the solution often, this may add to your water bill.
Tips & Tricks
- Use Cold Water
When you're filling your tub that you'll later add Shrink Solution to, it's best to use fairly cold water. If you use hot water, this may prevent a garment's fibers from relaxing as much or as quickly as they would otherwise.
- Treat One Garment at Once
To save time, you may be tempted to throw a bunch of wool or cotton garments in a tub together to be treated. However, this will mean that each garment won't have access to as much Shrink Solution as it would on is own, so the fibers within all of them may take longer to spread out.
- Pull on Edges of Clothing
After you've pulled a piece of clothing out of your tub, you can pull on the edges of it to stretch out its fibers even more than the mixture in the tub already has.
