Full Answer

Be cautious when attempting to shrink jeans, as making denim tighter often damages the material. Consider keeping the denim safe by washing it in vinegar and letting it dry outside. Raw denim naturally shrinks to fit the body after the garment has been worn and washed a few times, high temperatures or not. Consider the long-term life of the jeans before throwing them into hot water or into the dryer for an hour or two.
