its_melissa_DuH answered Monday November 20 2006, 4:29 pm: they usually shrink in the dryer if you keep it in there too long. sometimes my dad washes clothes when my mom isn't home and one time he put the clothes in the dryer for too long and when the clothes came out, i swear i couldn't even fit into my shirts that i bought like 2 weeks ago! lol. well to prevent this, you can buy this laundry detergent in the store that prevents clothes from shrinking. i don't remember the name of the detergent, but i think its tide. but if you go to walmart or target you're probably gonna find it there. otherwise if you don't want to buy laundry detergent, then hang up your clothes to dry. hope i helped!
amygwendoline answered Monday November 20 2006, 3:50 pm: Certain fabrics shrink & certain fabrics don't. I always do my laundry at night, so when they're done in the washer I hang up the shirts, and put everything else in the dryer. Leave them in over night, and then in the morning I wake up and put all the shirts in with the rest of the laundry and then dry them all together for like 30 minutes. That way you're not washing the shirts by themselves so they get wrinkly. :] [ amygwendoline's advice column | Ask amygwendoline A Question ]

But the higher the percentage is for cotton the more chance it'll shrink. If its only 70% there'll be a difference but not much if its 100% cotton you'll notice shrinkage. Just let it air dry after you put it in the wash! [ bAhAmAmA0250's advice column | Ask bAhAmAmA0250 A Question ]
thefish answered Monday November 20 2006, 10:48 am: They shoudn't. Many shirts shrink in the dryer, however. Check the washing instructions on the label, it should say whether or not you should put it in the dryer. If not, hang it up to dry. If it says that it can be dried, but still shrinks, go to a different shirt store, because that is a ripoff.
spacefem answered Monday November 20 2006, 6:17 am: Shirts tend to shrink more in the dryer than the washer. You can reduce it by using warm or cool water, and then drying them on low heat or just hanging them up to dry. [ spacefem's advice column | Ask spacefem A Question ]
