There's nothing more soul destroying that pulling your favourite jumper out of the washing machine and finding that it now fits Barbie.
But, luckily for you, in a lot of cases the damage can be reversed.
This life hack from Pennygem shows how you can un-shrink your jumper - and all you need is a tub of water, a towel and some baby shampoo.
Here's how to get your favourite jumper back:
:: Add 2 tbsp of baby shampoo to a tub of cold water and mix it in with a wooden spoon.
:: Soak the item of clothing for 25 minutes and take out.
:: Roll the jumper in a towel to remove the excess water.
:: Open out the towel and begin to stretch the jumper to its desired size.
:: Hang up and leave to dry. Et voilà, your jumper is as good as new.
