Red face Unanswered: Honey, I shrunk the T-shirt!!!

I accidentally put my Webkinz Kinzclothes T-shirt in the dryer! I meant to hang it up to dry and forgot, now it's too tight!!! It's the pink one with the Tigers and Lions on it, I only wore it twice!!!

DO NOT PUT YOUR KINZCLOTHES IN THE DRYER!!!

Hi There - I hate when I do that! Especially if i have not worn it much. Ok, here is what i do, sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn't. Take the tshirt and place it in a sink with warm water and add a capful of liquid fabric softner. Let sit a minute or two. Now, and this depends on your layout, I would place the t-shirt in the botom of the bath and lay it flat. Then I would gently start stretching it. Do this very gently. Pull one way and then pull another. When you have it in a better shape, move it somewhere to let it dry (hang it up - whatever) but don't let it go near the dryer again. This only works once in my experience, because it breaks down the cotton fibers too much if you do it again.

Thanks Jenifer36! I will certainly try that! Otherwise the only thing wearing the shirt will be my closet hanger!

Jen, thanks for the great advice. I tried it on one of the items I dryed in the dryer and it worked! Now I will only hand wash and set to dry on the table I have on my porch. Thank you again for posting this.

Lilkinzmom7, I am so sorry this happened to your T-shirt. I hope you try Jenifers advice, I did and it worked I hope it does for you too. Repped both of you.

It surprises me that you can't put a T-shirt in the dryer, I am sure there are a lot of other Webkinz shirts owners who appreciate your warning. Sorry that you had this happen, I hope the stretching idea works for you.
