Jeans from Denim has been very popular form of casual dress around the world, for decades. Historic brands include Levi's, Lee, and Wrangler. Jeans come in various fits that are comfortable for ladies and men of all ages. It includes leggings, boyfriend, skinny, tapered, straight, boot cut, mommy-cut, maternity, junior fits, heritage fits, slim, straight and flare fits.
Frequent washing of jeans have so far resulted not only in color fade but also couldnt stretch the jeans for a longer life. No matter you throw in washer or do a hand wash with normal water and pat to dry, your jeans is not so as it was purchased. An article from ‘The Wall Street Journal’ says that throwing your jeans in the washing machine agitates the cotton in the fabric causing it to ‘bloom’ and then tighten up and shorten the fibers.
Here are some tips which I learnt and practised to keep my jeans always new.
- After two or three usage of jeans, try to find spot that requires cleaning. Use a damp cloth with a cleaning agent or mild shampoo to remove any stains or dirt. Please avoid using any chemicals or bleaching agents to remove the stains. After cleaning use a clean damp cloth to wipe off the soapy effect and hang it to dry in a room temperature and give a mild steam iron or in bathroom while you shower so that the steam will help to freshen and restore the shape to the fabric while steaming out creases and wrinkles.
- Can give a full wash of jeans once in six months by soaking in a larger volume of pile with mild soap or shampoo and rinse and then give a air dry.
