A TikTok Video says you can stretch out too tight jeans by showering in them. It might be true.
In the viral TikTok in question, creator Lily Schoknecht claims to have discovered the “sustainability hack of the year” after telling her grandmother that she had given up on a pair of too-tight jeans. Apparently her nana responded: “Have you showered in them yet?”
Now you’re all caught up: A viral hack alleges that showering in your too-tight jeans is one way to get them to actually fit, and I had to try it out. I’d hop in the shower wearing a full-fledged Canadian tuxedo in the name of journalism, so soaking in my jeans didn’t seem too big a sacrifice. Plus, if the hack worked and I was able to reshape an old pair of jeans back into my wardrobe, I’d score a much-needed victory over my pandemic weight gain. (Note: I’m not mad about the weight gain. I just want to wear these jeans again, OK?)
