Fight Stains and Come Clean
Choose the gentlest cycle. This will help prevent damage to your sweater from a rough wash cycle. Choose your water temperature. Select cold water for bright-colored sweaters, and warm water for light-colored sweaters. Cold water can help the sweater maintain its color, so if in doubt, stick with a cold wash for your sweater.

After minutes, remove the sweater from the dryer. Lay the sweater flat on a towel or a sweater rack to dry. Lay the sweater down in the shape that it will be on your body. This means that the body part is flat, and the arms and shoulders are in the form they are when you wear it. Do not hang your sweater, as that could cause it to stretch or get hanger bumps in the shoulders.
If possible, set the towel on a tile floor, rather than on carpet. Otherwise, your carpet will get damp as the sweater soaks through the towel. Iron your sweater, if necessary. Cotton is heat resistant so it can withstand repeated use of an iron. Also, you can hand-wash the sweater if your washing machine does not have a delicate cycle. To do so, fill a sink or tub with cool water, pour in laundry detergent, place the clothes in the sink or tub, and allow them to soak.
Gently knead the clothes for a moment or two, and then rinse until the water runs clear. Hand-washing can help extend the life and quality of your sweater because it is more gentle than machine-washing.
