Fix Stretched Jumper Cuffs With A Hair Dryer

Have a jumper you love but don't want to wear because the sleeves and cuffs are all stretched out? There's an easy way to fix them and keep your arms toasty: grab a hair dryer.

Real Simple points out that the fix for stretched-out sweaters is easier than you might think. Just heat up some water, then dip the sweater cuff into the warm water and reshape it. Run the hair dryer over the cuff for a few minutes to dry it out and tighten the fabric back up. It's not a permanent fix, but it's enough to get those floppy-armed, drafty jumpers back into your daily wear routine and out of the charity pile.
