  • Hot water will shrink them more than the dryer alone. Try drying them and see if they are small enough, if not, try for the hot water.

  • Before drying them you can always do a rinse cycle in hot water. Then dry on high heat

  • It won't hurt them, but I'd re-wash them in hot water if you want them to shrink. I always wash my clothes in cold to avoid shrinking them.
