Your one laundry rule has always been do NOT put your jeans in the dryer. And yet, somehow, despite all the odds, your favorite pair of skinnies ended up in with your towels and now you fear that they will never fit again. Deep breaths—we have a super-easy trick for stretching out your denim and fixing their fit in a flash.

Step 1: Dampen your jeans anywhere they feel too tight (i.e., the waistband, knees, calves).

Step 2: Use those arm muscles and pull problem areas to stretch. Don’t be afraid to really tug. Trust us, they aren’t going to rip.

Voilà. Your skinny jeans are back to their original state of awesomeness.
