How to Care for Your Denim

When you find that perfect pair of jeans that look great on you, you want to take care of them so they last a long time. however not just jeans, you want to take care of all your denim items. To help keep your denim feeling fresh and new, try these tricks to care for them properly.


  1. Wash in cold water - To help preserve the shape and the color of your denim, you should turn them inside out and wash them in cold water in your washing machine. If your denim has embellishments on them you should put them inside out and place them in a mesh laundry bag before placing them in the washer. This will help protect them even better.
  2. Soap - You should choose to use liquid detergent rather then powder detergent. Liquid is less abrasive then the powder which also tends to clump up and leave marks on your denim clothing.
  3. Skip the dryer - Instead of drying your denim in the dryer, try laying them flat on a flat rack. Especially if your denim has embellishments on it, you do not want to put them in the dryer. This will also help avoid shrinkage. However if you will be ironing them each time then that can also damage the denim. So choose to either iron or place them in the dryer but don't do both.
  4. Try not to wash them every time you wear them if possible. If you want them to fit better, instead of ashing them place them in the dryer with a damp towel for a few minutes. Then they will be nice and snug again.
