I’m a cleaning fanatic & shrunk my favorite dress – my two-ingredient solution fixed it in less than an hour | The Sun

LAUNDRY day is never fun.

It’s even less fun if you realize you’ve accidentally shrunken your clothing items.


A woman named Ashley Creight, who goes by @ashcreight on TikTok, said she experienced this dreaded feeling when she realized one of her favorite garments was seemingly ruined after drying.

In the clip, she explained: “So yesterday I was doing laundry and shrunk one of my favorite dresses.”

Like many of us, when she finds herself in a bind, she phones the person she believes could solve all problems: her mother.

“Because my mom knows everything,” she joked.

“I am nowhere near ready for the day when my kids are grown-ups, and they call me because I’m supposed to know everything… because I know nothing.”

Luckily, her mom did know exactly what to do— and the trick is really simple.

“Take a bowl and fill said bowl with lukewarm water.”

The second ingredient is a bit more surprising, but still something you might have lying around: baby shampoo.

“Take a tablespoon of baby shampoo and put it in the water.

“Dump that in and give it a little stir.”

Next, she took the shrunken dress and submerged it completely in the water-shampoo mixture.

She said to leave it in the bowl for about 30 minutes to an hour.

In a follow-up video, she wrung out the water from the dress and hung it up on a clothes hanger outside.

“My mom said she’s heard people lay it out flat on a towel to dry, but she just hangs it.”
