For those of you who care a lot for their denims and want them to last longer, here’s a guide to take care of your beloved favorites
1.Don’t wash Everyday
Washing denim fabric too often will make it fade faster and weaken the twills inside the fabric as well. Jeans are rugged and made for heavy use, so the next time you forget to wash your jeans know that it is okay.
2.Wash by hand
Denims are known for the rugged look but are just as gentle as any other cloth. The best way to wash denims is to soak it in water and detergent and then just wash it with your hands.
3.Use Cold Water
Start out by filling a sink with cold water and, to that, add just a drop of mild detergent. Leave it to soak in a bucket for an hour or more. Make sure your jeans are turned inside out when you do this.
Bleach may help shine your regular clothes for that extra bright look but trust me they are not meant for denims. Bleach can cause serious damage to the denim fabric and deteriorate the yarn, it can cause staining to the cloth.
5.Always Air Dry
Air drying the best and easiest way to increase the life expectancy of your denims. Try to dry them naturally indoors as much as possible and away from sunlight to preserve the color.
6.Keep rotating them
Always keep switching among denims and not wear the same jeans all day long. The point is to give some rest to the fabric to retain its rigidity and also reduce the stress on the same pair of jeans
7.Lightly steam them
Water, both warm and hot, not only fades your denim but also causes shrinkage. If you’re not able to squirm into your skinny jeans, a hot bath is the last thing they need. Steam iron them when they are damp to retain the softness of the fabric and keep them healthy.
