    Default Will damp/cold clothes shrink in the dryer?

    I am having trouble getting my clothes to dry as it is so cold ATM. They are hanging inside, but still remain damp/cold for a number of days and I need them!
    If I put them in the dryer, would they shrink like they would if placed in soaking wet?

    I just read in another thread that you can put dry shirts in the dryer and they come out all ironed like? Is that right?
