Clothes keep shrinking!
I posted this in the appliance forum and they suggested that I post in this forum. I am so fed up with my clothes shrinking when I wash them in the washing machine. I never put my "good clothes" in the dryer so it's not the heat that is causing my clothes to shrink. Could it be the dryer? Could the detergent be too harsh? Is it the water? I bought 2 new sweaters a few weeks ago. I wore the black one a few times and washed it in cold water on Sunday and hung it up to dry. I compared it to the gray one just a few minutes ago, and the black one shrunk up a few inches! I'm furious. The fabric of the sweater is 60% cotton/40% rayon. My washer is a 4-year-old Fridgidaire stacked unit.
Can anyone provide any advice? I'd greatly appreciate it. I'd hate to go buy a new unit if there's nothing wrong with the current one.
