You can encounter shrunken pullovers when washed in an automatic washer and dryer. However, there is a minute chance of bringing it to somewhat better state. Usually, the mishap occurs when the sweater is washed on an incorrect cycle or you have dried it in a tumble dryer when it is actually supposed to dry out in the sunshine. To resolve this issue, simply put three tablespoons of hair conditioner in a bowl of lukewarm water and soak the sweater for almost five minutes. Then lay the pullover on a dry towel and stretch its fibers gently so to restyle it. Allow the sweater to dry on a dry towel.
Dry out Stains
We all know that once the stain gets harder, it is quite difficult to remove it. In this case, it is essential to add an aggressive stain remover in a bowl of luke warm water and wash the stain gently. On white clothes, lemon juice simply works wonders.
Yellow or Grey Stained Whites
With the passage of time, white clothing generally becomes grey or yellow when used. In order to bring life to the clothing, you can use triple wash technique. For example, take a solution involving liquid dish soap and water, mix them well. Then, drench the clothes for approximately twenty minutes in this solution. In the next step, rinse them thoroughly and then drench again for twenty five minutes in a solution of lemon juice and water. In the end, wash the clothes and then drench them thoroughly in a bowl of a solution containing two tablespoons of white vinegar and water. Wash them completely and let them dry.
One of the common mistakes that we usually do is forgetting our pen in the clothing that results in ink stains. But don’t worry; there is a solution to every problem. Firstly, you need to rub alcohol over the stain. Place a dry white towel below the clothing. You can take this test on a hidden spot prior to applying alcohol and rubbing it over a permanent ink stain. Rub the alcohol onto the stain. You’ll find that the towel underneath will become wet and stained from the ink. For further rubbing, move the clothing on to a clean dry section of a towel. Continue this process unless it is impossible to remove further stains. Finally, rinse the stained area completely and let it dry.
