We all love how a pair of jeans look like, and wish they could stay looking like that forever, and, although this is not possible, there is something that we can do to preserve them for a longer time with the right care, and that is why we created this article to give you some tips that will help you achieving it.
Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, advised about this topic: “Every pair of jeans contains a care label that should be followed in order to give the correct care to the jeans and preserve them looking great for a longer time”.
Here are some easy tips that will help you giving a better care to your jeans:
- Turn them around before putting them into the wash machine, as this will protect the color. And remember not to use hot water to wash your jeans, this will not only remove the dye on your jeans, it can make them shrink too.
- Some jeans have extra dye and when you wash them, you find out the color did not only fade out, but it also spoiled some other garments. In order to avoid this, submerge your jeans on a bucket with cold water and vinegar for around an hour. If you do not have vinegar, replace it with salt and make the same procedure.
- Wash your jeans a couple of times with cold water. Put them into the wash machine without any other garments, before you wear them for the first time.
- Wash your jeans as little as you can, this will preserve them in a great state for a longer time, wash the stains if they have some or get rid of bad odors by putting them on a freezer overnight.
“There are plenty of tricks we can do at home in order to give a better care to the jeans, this way they will stay in a great state and with their original color for a longer time, and if you treat them correctly, you can have them with you for years”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
