people are always asking how to safely shrink clothes, well this is not that. this is how to UN-shrink your clothes!

you need:
vinegar
sponge
ziplock baggy
60-100% cotton garment

first fill a cup full of vinegar
then using the sponge blot the vinegar on the garment until it is completely wet with the vinegar.
then fold it up and place it in a ziplock baggy. let it sit for about 30 minutes.
then wash it on a regular cycle on HOT. it is important that it is set to hot.
make sure you use detergent to get rid of the vinegar smell.

then put it in the dryer, on normal cycle, and once again make sure the heat is set to HOT!

then bingobango your shirt has grown at least 2 inches in every direction!

and another tip is if you dont want to the collar to grow dont blot it with vinegar.


this works because the vinegar reacts with the glucose in the cotton along with heat and expands the cotton fibers.

the more you know!

yeah imma test this on a crappy shirt too but im not very skeptical because ive heard about unshrinking with vinegar before. but will it shrink it again after normally washing in cold and drying in hot?

I'm going to try this on a white tee to see if there are any stains or residue left over.

lol I've seen this done. It works but it doesn't turn out as nicely as people are expecting.
