Mum 'panicked' after seeing son's Tesco school shirt

By Kate Lally

Getting the kids ready to go back to school is no small feat.

Making sure each child has everything they need, from uniforms, to pencil cases, shoes, bags, PE kits. It's never-ending, and often expensive.

One Merseyside mum has been left astounded after washing her son's school shirt just once.

The woman, who wants to remain nameless, bought a pack of two white polo shirts from Tesco in Kew, Southport.

But after washing one, she noticed it looked completely different than the other.

Posting on Facebook she wrote: "Same shirt, same packet; one wash at the correct temperature. Nothing else in the wash was shrunken! Seriously! Nice one Tesco."

The woman went on to say she then washed the second one, making sure she followed washing instructions to the letter - and it shrunk even smaller than the first.

The ECHO understands she has since had a refund from the supermarket giant.

One mum commented: "This happened to me too, I had a panic they'd put loads of weight on or something."

To which the original poster replied: "Same here! Been saying for months we couldn't keep up with his growing."

Tesco was approached for comment but had not responded by the time of publication.
