How to Prevent Hoodies from Shrinking

Hoodies season is finally here! we wait for it all year long because well - they are comfy, cute, and laid-back. Hoodies are the perfect staple to your closet for the fall, where it starts to get cold, but not frosty. They are warm enough to keep you cozy where you don't need anything else over. But how can you take care of your most precious garment in your wardrobe? The biggest problem with hoodies is - they shrink.

Why do Hoodies Shrink?

The most popular fabric used to make hoodies is cotton. Cotton is great because it is soft and comfortable to the touch, but the one drawback is that is prone to shrink when exposed to heat. Of course, there are ways to prevent hoodies from shrinking, let's discuss some!
  1. Wash your hoodie inside out

There is a saying my mom used to tell me," anything that is delicate turn it inside out"- same goes for hoodies!

      2. Wash with cold water

    Washing with cold water is always recommended because like we talked about- heat shrinks cotton fabric, so your best bet is to avoid warm or hot water.

          3. Hang to dry

    It is best to avoid the drying machine at all costs, but if it is truly necessary you may dry your hoodie just with the air fluff. Other than that, hang your hoodie on a rack, a chair or a coat hanger to keeps its best shape possible.
