If you have a pair
of jeans that is feeling a bit tight since going in the dryer
(or perhaps you have gotten a bit larger) you can try and
loosen the tightness in the fibres of the jeans.
First, wash as
normal, then dry on delicate until damp. Then, put the jeans
on (yes, it can be a bit of a struggle, but worth the effort)
and wear them until dry, which will take 1-3 hours depending
on the room temperature. This will not only gently stretch
the jeans, but also form fit them to your exact body.
Once they are stretched,
always dry them on delicate instead of on the hot cotton setting,
in order to prevent the jeans from shrinking again.
