How to shrink clothes: Shrink cotton, jeans, polyester and more

Fashionistas usually do everything in their power to avoid shrinking their clothes. But every once in a while, a garment needs to be sized down a bit. Whether you’ve lost weight and can’t part with your favorite clothes or simply couldn’t pass up a sale item that was a size too large, there are a couple of ways to intentionally shrink your clothes at home. Of course, there are a few things you should know if you want to avoid a disastrous “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” moment, so TODAY Style consulted the experts to help guide you along the way. Happy shrinking! Over time, most (if not all) of our clothes will shrink naturally. Knowing why shrinkage occurs can help you both prevent and achieve it, depending on your sizing needs. “Garments are put under stress/tension in manufacturing. In essence, shrinkage is the garment trying to go to its fully relaxed state when the fabric becomes wet,” Renae Fossum, a Procter & Gamble fabric care scientist, said. In fabrics like cotton, rayon or bamboo, shrinkage occurs with the help of water and mechanical action. When you throw these clothes into the wash, their fibers absorb the moisture and swell up. These swollen fibers are more elasti...

Amazon and Walmart’s Flipkart pledge to scrap single-use plastic packaging in India

Amazon India and Walmart’s Flipkart, two of the largest e-commerce businesses in India, have pledged to curb the usage of single-use plastic in their packaging in the country as they move to help New Delhi fight its ongoing battle with environmental pollution. Amazon said on Wednesday it will replace all single-use plastic in its packaging by June 2020 with paper cushions. The move follows Flipkart’s announcement last week when it said it had already cut its reliance on single-use plastic by 25% and intended to move entirely to recycled plastic consumption in its supply chain by March 2021. Amazon said it will use paper cushions to replace plastic dunnage like air pillows and bubble wraps across its fulfillment centers in India. “Paper cushions will be used to fill the void space inside packages to ensure that the product is well protected in transit,” the company said in a statement. In a statement, Akhil Saxena, VP of Customer Fulfillment at Amazon India, said the company will also train its sellers who directly fulfill customer orders to curb their reliance on single-use plastic. “This investment in protecting the environment ensures a triple win — it is good for our planet, ...

Sync your handwritten notes to an app on your phone via Bluetooth using the Oree Stylograph pen

As much as possible, I take notes using Evernote, but sometimes I want to draw pictures and add diagrams and calculations to my notes. In those cases, it is easier to use a pen and paper. Orée has come up with the Stylograph, a pen that works with special paper to digitize all your handwritten notes. According to Dezeen, The pen contains a high-speed micro camera that tracks where pen strokes are positioned on the page – relying on the paper’s barely visible patterns for reference. An accelerometer within the pen also detects its movement and angle. The Stylograph stores your notes on its internal storage and uses Bluetooth to transfer them (exports to PDF, PNG, SVG) to an associated app on your mobile device (iOS or Android). You may transcribe your notes into digital characters and into 50 different languages. You must use the special Orée paper (192 sheets of A5 paper stored in a leather notebook) to use the smartpen features because it contains patterns necessary for those features to work; otherwise, you could simply use the pen as you would any other pen (without the smartpen features). Check out the following video illustrating how it works: The Stylograph is made out of...

I was concerned after reading some of the other reviews that these were going to be flimsy and cheap. The back side is thin, but not to the point that I’m worried about it ripping or breaking, and the front is awesome — very thick, the characteristics (such as the snowman’s carrot nose) don’t sag or look smooshed (considering they were in a bag and boxed up).

It’s that spooky time of year once again, with pumpkins and cobwebs as far as the

It’s that spooky time of year once again, with pumpkins and cobwebs as far as the eye can see. This year, [Mikeasaurus] has put together something really special – a Ghost Rider costume with some amazing effects. The costume starts with the skull mask, which started with a model from Thingiverse. Conveniently, the model was already set up to be 3D printed in separate pieces. [Mike] further modified the design by cutting out the middle to make it wearable. The mask was printed in low resolution and then assembled. [Mike] didn’t worry too much about making things perfect early on, as the final finish involved plenty of sanding and putty to get the surface just right. To complete the spooky look, the skull got a lick of ivory paint and a distressed finish with some diluted black acrylic. With the visual components complete, [Mike] turned his attention to the effects. Light is courtesy of a series of self-blinking LEDs, fitted inside the mask to give the eye sockets a menacing orange glow. However, the pièce de résistance is the smoke effect, courtesy of a powerful e-cigarette device and an aquarium pump. At 225W, and filled with vegetable glycerine, this combination produces thick ...

Boca Juniors have signed Italian veteran midfielder Daniele De Rossi, the club announced on Thursday. De Rossi, 36, has joined the Argentinian giants as a free agent after leaving AS Roma in June following 18 years at the club. A World Cup winner with Italy in 2006, De Rossi was given a hero’s welcome by a group of screaming Boca fans, who chanted a song in his honour as he landed at Buenos Aires airport in the early hours of Thursday.
