Elongating the Life of Your Favorite Jeans

 

So, you’ve spent the time and money on a pair of fabulous, high quality jeans that ensures your bottom looks amazing (If you haven’t, go do that now… your bum will thank you!).

Great! Now what? Well, making sure they still look just as fabulous after 20 washes is essential!

Here are 5 quick tips to help you keep them looking just as they are.

1. Soak your denim in a mixture of vinegar, salt and water to set the dye and ensure your denim doesn’t fade from future washes. All you need to do is fill a sink with equal parts water & vinegar + 1 cup of salt. Let it soak overnight and your done!

2. ALWAYS wash inside out.

3. ALWAYS wash in cold water, with similar colors.

4. Use color protection washing detergent to keep colors from fading (this applies to your favorite black sweater too!).

5. Dryers are the enemy! Yes, it’s quick and easy but keep in mind that the dryer will decrease the life of your favorite jeans in addition to shortening the length of your denim (one of my biggest pet peeve’s…).  Instead, hang or lay flat to dry. If you must throw them in the dryer use the lowest temperature possible.

 

Do you know of any other tricks I could share with my clients & fans? I’d love to hear about them!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
