3. Rinse the garment several times with clean water so there is no more detergent in the garment. Make sure the temperature of the clean water is the same as the temperature you've wash with, to prevent shrinkage.

4. After washing never wring or twist the sweater to get the water out, try to squees to drain the water out.
