The Ultimate Guide to Caring for Your Denim
Denims are a wardrobe staple that are built to last you forever. But have you ever found that your denim wears out quicker than you expected? Or perhaps the color has faded drastically? Chances are you might not be using the right methods to care for your favorite pair of jeans.
So, if you want to keep those jeans looking sharp for years to come, you're going to need to know how to take care of them. Lucky for you, we've got some tips to help you do just that!
Tip #1: Wash as infrequently as possible. We know it's tempting to throw your jeans in the wash after every wear. But trust us, you don't need to! Denim is a sturdy fabric that can handle a little wear and tear, so unless your jeans are visibly dirty or smelly, hold off on washing them. Another quick tip is to pop your favorite pair in the freezer for a quick odor fix!
Tip #2: Always wash cold & inside out. When you decide to give your jeans a wash, make sure you use cold water and wash them inside out. This will help protect the color and finish of the denim and prevent unnecessary wear and tear on the fabric. If you have the time, hand-washing your denim would be the best!
Tip #3: Use warm water and mild detergent for white denim. If you're rocking a pair of white jeans, you'll want to be a little more careful when it comes to washing them. Use warm water and a mild detergent specifically formulated for whites. And remember to always avoid bleach.
Tip #4: Limit automatic drying - line or hang dry as often as possible. Finally, when it comes to drying your jeans, try to avoid using the dryer if you can. Instead, hang them up or lay them flat to air dry. Not only will this help preserve the shape and color of your jeans, but it's also better for the environment (and your wallet!).
Tip #5: Select your denims from reputable brands. Be careful where you purchase your jeans from as duplicate denim may also be the reason for quick wear and tear. Look at their signature design elements that make the pair unique to the brand.
So there you have it, some tips for keeping your jeans looking fresh and new. Remember, denim is a fabric that's meant to be lived in and loved, so keep these tips in mind to ensure your trusty pair of jeans becomes your personal style staple for years to come.
