Restoring a Shrunken Wool Sweater

To reshape a shrunken wool sweater, try soaking the garment in two tablespoons of hair cream rinse mixed with a gallon of cool water, then roll in a towel to remove excess water and clothespin to a pants stretcher or board. Stretch a bit by pulling seams gently, but firmly at the shoulders, sides, and neck.

Sounds good. Need to know what is "hair cream rinse"?
