Ok, DH reckons I shrink his work shirts as they end up very short on him (he's 6'2 so its noticeable). I wash them at 40 degrees (normal cotton wash) and tumble them for up to 10 minutes to get the worst of the creases out before ironing them.

Am I doing anything wrong (other than not sending them to a cleaner or making him do them himself?)? His complaining is getting annoying!

Tumble drying is well known for shrinking!!

If you want to make ironing those creases out easier do it when the shirt is still damp. I do this for the table cloths in my restaurant. Works great.

Oh thanks, oops guess it was my fault after all. I told DH he'd just put on weight! grin
