    HELP - my waffle robe has shrunk

    I washed my waffle robe for the first time (only on a refresher wash at 30) and it has shrunk all over....it feels really stretchy as if each little square has tightened up...I have tried ironing it but it didn't help much. Any ideas?????
    Thanks

    Well i thought it must be that type of thing Marina,but then i thought maybe not because why would it shrink lol

    I believe these have to be washed seperately at 60 degrees, try washing it again at that temp. It should stretch back out to it's original size then.

    Has anyone got one and washed it? Maybe mine is faulty and I can get a refund? No idea what "blue waffle" is...

    Did you tumble dry it OP ?

    I didn't tumble dry it, just hung it on a coat hanger.

    Naughty you + I like the smell of clothes dried outside. I wonder is tumble drying my robe would help, maybe I rinse and spin it and try.

    no dont tubble dry it, if you have washed as per instructions then take it back to shop and demand a refund

    What setting does the care label say to wash it at ?

    It says 40 and that it can be tumble dried - it is 100% cotton

    how do you even find out about that!

    Same thing happened to mine OP - got it from Next and it wasn't cheap. Washed it and the waffle pattern shrunk to almost half the size! It's that kind of material/pattern - just prone to shrinking. Took it back and got a larger size so when it shrunk again it fitted perfectly lol X)

    EDIT - I meant the robe!! Not the blue waffle as I just googled it oO

    oh my eyes!!!!

    God yes! I googled after I originally posted then when I saw what I first said thought I'd better edit it X) That was actually gross seeing that - especially at this time of day just before I'm going to have my tea.
