    shrink

    To say whether the clothing will become small in size after putting into the tunble dryer.

    1. Should I say :

    Is the clothing shrinkage-proof after putting into the tumbler dryer?

    2. Should I say clothings or clothing?
    __________________________________________________ ______________

    The pants are stretchable so even though it is a bit shrinked after wash, we can stretch it to enlarge the size.

    Should I say :
    3. The pants shrink. or
    4. The pants is shrink

    5. The pants will shrink after putting into the dryer. or
    6. The pants will be shrinked after being put into the dryer.

    I think pants itself will be not become small unless after we put it into the dryer. That is I think about to put the sentence in passive voice.

    Re: shrink

    Will clothing shrink in the tumble-dryer?

    The pants are stretchable, so even though they shrink when washed, we can stretch them back to size.
    They shrunk when dryed, but I stretched them back out.

    5. The pants will shrink in the dryer.
    6. The pants will be shrunken after being in the dryer. They shrunk while being tumble-dryed.
