Shrinking tank tops

Apr 28, 2011 @ 19:39
I got a couple of tank tops that were too big for me, and I need to shrink it. (100% Cotton)
1. When I'm putting it in hot water will the color fade?
2. If so, should I flip it inside out?
3. What should I do after placing it in the hot water after a few minutes of boiling?
4. Do I hang the tank tops, or place the tank tops in the dryer?
5. Should I put all the tank tops in the boiling water together?
6. Would it change the colors of the shirt? Or should I do it one by one?
7. If I put the tank tops in the dryer, do I leave it in there longer than I'm suppose to or not as long?
8. Does the tank tops have a maximum amount of shrinkage that I could do? Or could I shrink it as small as possible?

Why would you have to boil the tanks...or any piece of clothing in general? Whatever i need shrunk, i just wash on with regular hot water and put the drier on the highest/hottest dry setting.

The shirt is about 4+ inches bigger than what I want it to be? What am I suppose to do to have it shrink? Do I wash it a couple of times then dry? Or should I wash, then dry it, and repeat?

It's the smallest size, hahaa. I'm just wondering if it will or if I could shrink a lot.

Would the sleeve and the neck shrink with it, also will it shrink a lot. Since you said to put it on the highest serring for the drier, will it shrink the shirt a lot?

Yes it will. Almost 1 size down a lot.
If you want test it out with a shirt you dont want anymore.

Wash like normal, Dry on the highest setting possible. thats it.
