How to shrink a shirt to the perfect size

There are a few effective methods to shrink a shirt, and one of the easiest is by boil it. Simply heat a pot of water and then turn off the stove as soon as it boils. Drop the T-shirt into the water immediately and let it sit for about five minutes.

If you are looking for a more severe degree of shrinkage, you can leave the shirt in the water for up to 20 minutes. The longer the shirt is left in the water, the more it will shrink, but of course there is a limit to this magic. Most shirts will only shrink up to a maximum of 20% in size.

When you’re done soaking the shirt, remove it from the water with tongs or a wooden spoon. When the shirt is cool enough to touch, wring it out and examine your progress. The cooking process can be repeated as many times as you need to achieve the desired results.
