A quick run down on how to wash and care for your pair of jeans. ( or denim in general)
One thing we should be very aware of is that even though your jeans is your casual “go to” pants, it still needs special care and treatment. The rules of washing, drying and ironing are simple.
Although it is highly urged that we do not wash our jeans a lot (Unless they have major stains), their first wash is the most important one. We all have our favorite pair of jeans, and we are more cautious over the dark ones since they fade and lose color easily. One tip I can give you to avoid such damage is to wash them in a 1 cup of vinegar and cold water (Machine wash). And if you didn't know, you should always turn your jeans inside out during washing time.
The duration between each time you wash them varies between once every 3 months to twice every six months. You are going to wonder how to get by when you need them freshened up now and then! I say freeze them. Yes, freeze your jeans over night, that way it kills the bacteria that cause them to go smelly.
- Hang or properly fold to not, lose shape.
- Salt/Baby powder absorb oil. (Incase you spilt some while eating)
- Do not tumble dry; it causes the color to fade.
- When ironing, too much heat damages the fabric.
