How to shrink clothes.

What solution will shrink tee shirts by soaking in a washtub? As in cotton or cotton-blended tee shirts that are larger than I like (ordered a bunch from a clearance sale).

No I don't have my own dryer, so can't simply dry them 10 times in a row on extra hot.

    >can't simply dry them
    Thousands of years of recorded historynof textiles. Innumerable years before that. and you think you need a machine to dry clothes.

      no space to hang stuff to dry in my parent's apartment

      machine-drying with excessive heat causes clothes to shrink, so if I did have one I could simply leave the stuff I want to shrink in there and then repeatedly runt he dryer on the hottest setting until it fits better. But that's not something easily doable with the communal dryer in the basement.

          nope, nor a bathtub
          all I can do is leave a plastic tub like this int he shower
          what I'm hoping to find is some chemical or mixture that I can add to water that will make tee shirts shrink but not ruin them

          >get shirts that fit
          It's pretty rare, I wear size S mens, but many of them feel too bulky on my skinny ass. Got some nice ones at a clearance sale online, but they're just too loose fitting than I'm comfortable with

            You obviously don't. Try the children's section.

        Why can't you use the dryer? It's there, put clothes in it. Or dig some quarters out of the couch and go to a laundromat.

          Not going to sit at the laundromat all day, but I will dry them on the hottest setting a few times, putting it in with towels and sheets I dry on hot.

          What I can do before is just leave some shirts to soak in a tub of water.

          I do have some T shirts in size XS, but usually that size is too tight, while most mens shirts in size S are much baggier than I like. It varies widely though, 2 of the cheap shirts I bought online were actually too tight, but several others too wide or baggy. I'm a slim but fit guy, so it looks really sloppy with a bunch of loose material fluttiering about, feels oversized and I don't like how it looks on me.

            Cotton will only shrink for good once, and it will expand a bit as you wear it and shrink just as much as it expanded when you wash and dry it. You can't shrink it without tailoring and fitting, and at that point just buy some decent T-shirts because they'll cost you just as much.

    Cotton will only shrink so much, this isn't like wool where you can turn them into woolen felt.

    Just sell them or donate them to a thrift store for a discount on what you actually want.
