    I would doubt it, frankly. But if your shirts are otherwise ruined, what do you have to lose? Try it and report back.

    I have better success with dress shirts by washing them in cold, letting the washer spin dry them and then ironing and stretching them, while they're still wet from the wash. Each shirt is different, but depending on how much they shrank, you may have some luck.
