  • You'd think so, because every time you dry something, there's all that lint. So maybe eventually, the clothes would disappear into 100% lint, lol.

  • No. The length of time in the dryer will destroy elastic completely.. but if something is going to shrink in the heat it will do it as soon as it heats up, long before it's dry.

  • ^5 Anonymous.........I thought I was the only one who thought that. LMBO Recently, I bought some fleece bottoms and bought mediums.... figuring (as I've experianced) they would shrink to a small. They did'nt shrink and keep falling down on me. I'm lost on this one.
