To unshrink your fine wools follow this idea.
Mix a solution of one gallon lukewarm water and two tablespoons baby shampoo. Soak the shrunken garment for about ten minutes. Now the important part: Don’t rinse! Simply blot out all the excess water with a dry towel and very gently lay it flat on a fresh towel. Reshape slowly and carefully stretch it back to its original size. Dry out of direct sunlight or heat. This tip comes from the Wool Bureau who verifies this technique will work provided the fibers have not become permanently damaged.

BURNT PAN. Fill that icky casserole pan with warm water and lay a dryer sheet flat on top to soak overnight. In the morning, the baked-on gunk will have either floated off or be loose enough to scrape off easily with a spatula.
TISSUE ROLL. Roll up a dryer sheet and stuff it inside the paper roll. Each time you spin, it releases a little freshness into your bathroom.
BLINDS. Wipe down your blinds with a dryer sheet to prevent static electricity and to keep dust from collecting.

Also if a recipe calls for fresh herbs and you only have dried, use HALF of the amount called for in the recipe, as the dried are more concentrated.

OK, I'd like to revise this idea by saying that if you want to use the panty hose over and over again instead of cutting each one off, I would untie the top one and take out the onion and then untie each one as you need one. then you can use the same panty hose over again.
Pour 8 ounces distilled water into a spray bottle. Add 1 teaspoon liquid fabric softener and 1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol. Apply sprayer tightly, and shake well. Set spray pattern to fine mist. Spray the offending wrinkles with a fine mist then smooth out the wrinkles with your hand. This spray will dry quickly and wrinkles will be gone
