How do you wash clothes without shrinking them?

Answer

The first step to ensuring proper clothing maintenance is to read the care label. Clothes that are meant to be dry cleaned or hand washed should never go in a traditional washing machine. In order to prevent shrinking, clothes should be washed on the cold cycle. Not only will this help prevent any shrinkage, it will also save energy.
