Shirt shrinking question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Suppose someone (not myself, probably my cleaner or a family member) cleaned a dress shirt and dried it in a dryer, rather than hanging it, and as a result the shirt shrunk. Is it at all possible that after several trips through the cleaning cycle, the threads might relax somewhat and the shirt could return to (close to) its original dimensions? Thanks.

No, it's finished. Get a hamper with three sections, delicate, white and regular wash. Delicates always cold water and hang to dry.

Damn. And that's a shirt I paid retail price for. Time for Ebay I guess.

I have stretched jeans back out while wet, but I don't know if this would work for shirt fabric. It's probably time to say goodbye.
