I was sorry to read the negative reviews of Unshrinkit. I bought it a couple of years ago when they were introducing the product. It worked well on two sweaters, so I'm buying it
again. Thanks to you naysayers, it's now on sale.
If I have problems or think the formula has been changed, I'll get back to you.
P.S. Love the poem, Ronnie.

Works, but smelly!

I accidentally threw into the dryer a full sized wool shawl my mom gave me. And yes, it felted up to about the size of a dish towel. Unshrinkit relaxed the fibers enough for me to block the shawl back out to about half its original size. The pattern is again discernible, though some felting unfortunately remains.
My only issue with Unshrinkit is the smell. I believe it uses a similar chemical (unnamed on the label, btw) used in hair permanents. That's the same "beauty parlor" odor, and immediately recognizable as such. It is VERY strong, and remains on the fabric even after repeated rinsing.
Also, the instructions say to pour the entire bottle into 2.5 liters of water, which seems quite wasteful for unshrinking just one item. If I buy Unshrinkit again, I will do the math and use half the bottle as it's easier to store a small bottle than a gallon jug of fluid which could be mistaken for something else.

Unshrinkit - Shrunken Sweater Solution

About Unshrinkit

Reversal of misfortune

After inadvertently putting her brand new cashmere sweater in the wash and dryer, Unshrinkit co-founder, Desiree Stolar, did what any resourceful, modern day woman would do—she turned to the Internet for guidance. While she came across plenty of home remedies, nothing worked. That’s when she teamed up with some fellow Harvard Business School graduate students to invent Unshrinkit.

With the help of a chemical engineer, Desiree and company co-founders Nate Barbera and Matt Kahn developed​ a liquid solution specially devise​d ​to interact with shrunken, bunched up wool, cashmere, and angora to elongate, straighten, and restore the fibers back to their original "unshrunk" condition. There was such a great response, that they kept innovating and recently introduced a better-than-ever formula.

Now, when your favorite sweater takes an accidental tumble in the dryer and ends up smaller than you’ll ever be, there’s no need to dismay. Simply dunk that sweater in a bottle of Unshrinkit mixed with water for 30 minutes, rinse, stretch, and lay flat to dry.
