T-shirt shrunk No problem

Have I gained weight or has my clothing shrunk? If the latter is the case, read on. Because in this blog you will get tips on how to prevent your T-shirt from shrinking. And how you can undo a shrinkage.

Prevention of shrinkage

Natural fabrics such as wool and cotton absorb more moisture than synthetic fabrics, such as polyester or rayon. As a result, T-shirts made from 100% cotton shrink more when washed too hot .

The most important lesson to avoid shrinking your T-shirt is not to wash it too much. In addition, there are a few tips.

  • Put your T-shirt in cold water for the first time (without detergent) . The shrinkage is then kept to a minimum.
  • Buy so-called 'pre-shrunk' (pre-shrunk) T-shirts. As a result, T-shirts will shrink less.
  • Always wash in cold or lukewarm water. Also read this blog for this .

  • Wet your T-shirt in cold water
  • Watch it on the floor or hang it up
