Does anyone know how to shrink jeans?

  1. I just bought a really nice pair of jeans and recieved it today. However, it's a little too big. I really don't want to sent it back or resell it because I got a good price for it. It's 100% cotton. Does anyone know how to shrink it?

    Thanks in advance
  2. It will shrink a little bit on its own after you wash and dry it on a hot setting, but I think it you wear it a few times between washings it will stretch out again.
  3. Stick them in the dryer for 2 cycles....
  4. back in the day, we used to boil wash our "shrink to fits" and dry the heck out of them....does Levi's still do those??? I am soooo out of the loop!
  5. hot water hot dryer
