Stiffness in Handwashed Clothing

January 22, 2010 4:14pm CST
For those of you without a dryer, or who prefer to handwash... does anyone know how to handwash and not have the clothes go all stiff? It's mostly pants (particularly jeans), but sometimes shirts as well -- after handwashing I'll hang them up to dry and they'll go quite stiff and are uncomfortable to wear for a brief period before they loosen up. Am I doing something wrong? (Not rinsing enough?) I handwash underthings and never have this problem with those. Thanks in advance! :)

Thanks for your response - I don't have a washing machine at the moment, and the laundromat is too expensive, so handwashing is my only option.
