Is it possible to get cotton clothes such as pyjama pants and boxers back to feeling the way that they were before using fabric softener on them? As well, will ironing them out make them softer, and or more strong and supported and not as loose?

Ironing sometimes make the clothes more stiff but it really depends on the kind of fabric you use.
As for fabric softener, the effect mostly vanishes for me as soon as I wash the clothes again without softener.
Are you sure it's because of the fabric softener? Because that stuff usually only lasts until you wash the stuff again (that's why it's added lastly so it doesn't get washed out during the washing program). Might it be that the clothes got softer because you washed them multiple times?Thank you for your reply. They still feel fabric softened after a little over 5 months. The boxers and one of my pyjama pants are from Old Navy, 100% cotton, and two other pyjama pants are from Joe Fresh, 40% Cotton and 60% Polyester. Will ironing make any of them less loose and more supported? Is there any way at all to make them feel like they did before I used fabric softener on them?
I am pretty sure that it is the fabric softener, because my boxers and pyjama pants felt so much different than before. I used it on them in the first place to fix them after the boxers started feeling disjointed and not as supported on the right side, and getting the Old Navy jammy pants wet on the inside, which made them feel hard and stiff, even after washing them multiple times. In regards to the Joe Fresh jammy pants, I just wanted them to feel softer and less tight. In hindsight, I should have only tested one pair of boxers and two of the jammy pants out before using it on all of them at once just to have enough to have a worthwhile loadAre you sure it's because of the fabric softener?

If you're looking for a way to make the clothes harder for longer than five minutes, then simply ironing won't do the deal. But you may buy something called "spray starch" (I'm german so that's what google tells me what it's called). You put that on the clothes before ironing them, and THEN it should feel less soft.
