How to Fix an Itchy Sweater – Fidgey Ray Boutique

LLAMA ask you a question 🙈 know that really cute sweater in your closet that you want to wear but you just can't, because it feels like a cactus on your skin?...Want to actually wear that sucker this season?!
@whowhatwear's Elyssa Goodman has a fix for that.
I recently read an article that is a LIFESAVER for fall and winter and I wanted to share the industry secret with you guys!! Check it out.

"▪️1. Soak Your Sweater in Water and Vinegar
Mix together cold water and a few tablespoons of white vinegar. Turn your sweater inside out and submerge it in the mixture, making sure it's totally saturated, and then drain it.
▪️2. Massage in Hair Conditioner
When the sweater is still damp, massage it with a good hair conditioner—the cheap stuff will cause a waxy buildup. Try to avoid stretching the sweater's fibers when you do this.
▪️3. Let It Sit, Then Rinse
Give the conditioner 30 minutes to set on the sweater, and then rinse all of it out with cold water. Press gently on the sweater to remove the rest of the water, taking care not to lose its shape.
▪️4. Lay Flat to Dry and Then Store It in a Plastic Bag
Place the sweater on a towel and let it dry flat. When it's completely dry, fold it neatly and put it in a large zip-top plastic bag.
▪️5. Store It in the Freezer Overnight
Place the bagged sweater in the freezer overnight, and in the morning, it won't itch anymore! The conditioner and the vinegar make the fibers in the sweater softer, and freezing it prevents its short fibers from poking out."
