9 Tips for How to Wash Jeans

Posted in Style

I thought I’d share some things I’ve learned over the years by working with denim. Here’re my 9 best tips for denim care:

1. Care for your jeans by laundering them lightly and less often, using a cold wash cycle and line drying.

2. Freshen up the jeans between washes by hanging them in the sun or in a steamy bathroom. 

3. Turn your jeans inside out before washing.

4. Always wash your jeans separately for the first time as many styles contain additional colors that can dye on other clothes.

5. Never use bleach detergents, and be careful about the amount of rinse aid you’re using.

6. Remove the jeans from the washing machine as soon as they’re finished to avoid faded stripes.

7. Always wash your jeans at the lowest possible temperature.

8. To maintain the fit, smooth and stretch the stitches. Avoid using a dryer—it may destroy fit of the jeans.

9. Always hang the jeans on their right side to avoid stripes. 

Hope you got some new ideas from my list!
