Denim is a material that must be taken care of in order to preserve the feel, shape, and wash. Most people wear their jeans a few time and throw it in the washer with other dark clothes. This is a mistake!
Machine washing your jeans causes the fibers on the cotton fabric to swell, in turn causing the yarns to tense up and get shorter, shrinking the jean. The open look of a jean is then damaged, as well as, fading the wash of the jean.
That being said, no one these days really has the time to separately hand wash their denim, so Vigoss has made some “Must Do’s” when washing your jeans.
- Wash all of your jeans, and only jeans, in one load
- Wash on a delicate cycle, so the washer doesn’t agitate the fibers to much
- Turn your jeans inside out (remember to check that your pockets are empty!)
- Use only cold water to wash your jeans, leaving out the detergent, thus keeping the indigo intact and even helping out the environment
- Remove jeans immediately after the cycle is finished
- The best way to dry jeans is air drying, hanging your jeans by the belt loop to preserve the body and shape of the jean
- If you use the dryer, dry on low heat only
- If your jeans are to big and you are putting them in the dryer on high heat to shrink, they will only shrink unevenly. It’s best to get them professionally altered
If you are willing to completely preserve your denim, there are two methods that work to keep your jeans clean and fresh. Avoid washing your jeans all together and when the time comes to clean them, fold them up, place in a sealed bag, and put them in your freeze for a week. The cold air kills all the living organisms and leaves them crisp and clean.
Method two is to hand wash your jeans. Fill your tub with room temperature water and add about two tablespoons of detergent. You can also add about 1/8 cup of vinegar to your dark wash jeans. The vinegar preserves and sets the indigo and keeps the jeans from fading.
Use best practice when cleaning your jeans, because we all know you want your favorite, best fitting jeans to last forever!
