    I searched in vain for the topic where one of our more "creative" members mentioned that he did shrinking on selective parts of a shirt or some article of clothing. The sleeves on a few of my shirts are just a tad long. Is there a way I can shrink specific parts of a shirt. If my poor memory serves me correctly, he would wet a the part he wanted to shrink and then throw it into the dryer. Does this work? Does it harm the fusing? I have never used a dryer for dress shirts. I think it would be great if we had a sticky on ways to do this if possible and while I am on the subject, there had been a vast knowledge explunged on this board of cleaning and treating stains on articles of clothing. An unified post would be great for that too. Just my humble two cents.

    Thanks
