Boiling the shirt will shrink it, the inzer SDP shrinks close to a full size. You can do this with squat suits as well.. the hardest part is getting a big enough bowl to boil it in.

It may shorten the life span of the shirt.

Marinate and use a dry rub sometime. It really brings out the seams.

It takes about 10 minutes. It'll stretch out again quicker than when it was new. I have a shirt that I boiled a lot and used for almost 2 years. I don't think it hurt the life of it at all.

Often since I have the pot of water all hot..I'll throw in a handfull of shrimp...and some Old Bay seasoning... it adds a distinct stench....which I've found attracts fat women like flies to a picnic.:evillaugh:

I'd be worried about single py inzer shirts blowing seams if you boiled them.


I wash my equipment before every meet in Power Wash. It shrinks them a bit and makes them smell good.

I couldn't imagine how bad my house would smell if I boiled my shirt...... going on a year and a half of grime worked in to that fabric now..... I don't even need ammonia caps......
