So on Saturday I bought a shirt for work. Nothing terribly expensive, but nice. Or so I thought. I forgot to lay it flat to dry and now the seams are twisted and its three inches shorter than it was before I washed it! I'm pissed. Its rayon, not even a high quality or high maintenance fabric. Ugh...Idk...I guess another shirt for the goodwill pile. Or the trash.

If you have the receipt take it back.

Whoops!  I'm surprised is shrunk so much.  I hate laying things flat to dry, so I try to keep those at a minimum.  I put those things in mesh bags so I am less likely to forget.

I do too. I try not to buy things that I can't just throwing the dryer. I just don't have room for that stuff to sit and dry out.

I know. I forgot though. I was in a hurry to get that load in the dryer before work and just didn't even think about it. Plus, I've never had a piece of rayon that had to be air dryed

I don't think so either. Unless I lied, but I'm not going to lie over a $15 shirt.

Rayon is kind of high maintenance. I'm sure there is a way to fix it, though.  You can search "unshrink" on pinterest and find all kinds of ideas.
