3. Check for Pre-Shrinking

Cotton is notoriously prone to shrinkage. Because the last thing you want to do is take your clothes out of a hot wash several sizes smaller than they were when they went in, it is always a good idea to check whether your cotton garments are sanforised (or pre-shrunk). If they are, you should be able to wash at whatever temperature is right for the stain and colour situation; if they’re not, however, stick to cold water. This will help to keep your items the right size.

Don’t over-Dry
