One of the best things about breaking out in the cooler weather is breaking out your sweater collection. However, there is always that one gorgeous sweater that itches just a little too itchy and unfortunately finds its way to the bottom of the drawer no matter how much you love it. If comfort is your priority, you wouldn't tolerate shoes that don't fit, stiff jeans, or too small tops. So why accept itchy sweaters?
But now you can give your sweater a new life and get rid of that itch once and for all. See how it's done below, then scroll down to find your next favorite jumpers for Fall 2020.
Mix cold water and a few tablespoons of white vinegar. Turn your sweater over and soak it in the mixture, making sure it is completely saturated, then let it drain.
If the sweater is still damp, massage it with a good conditioner– –The cheap stuff creates a waxy buildup. Avoid stretching the fibers of the sweater.
Give the conditioner 30 minutes to put on the sweater, then rinse it off with cold water. Gently squeeze the sweater to remove the rest of the water, being careful not to lose its shape.
Lay the sweater on a towel and let it dry flat. When it is completely dry, fold it up neatly and put it in a large plastic zippered bag.
Put the wrapped sweater in the freezer overnight and it won't itch any more in the morning! The conditioner and vinegar will soften the fibers in the sweater, and the freezing will prevent the short fibers from sticking out.
