Techniques for Maintaining Jeans
Among the must-have clothing items, almost every one of us has many pairs of jeans. But as out of carelessness or lack of knowledge, we often wash our jeans with other clothes. And that’s where we unknowingly cause less longevity of jeans. Furthermore, as the jeans have the thickest clothing washing them with other clothes can damage other clothing items.
So, while washing your favorite pair of jeans, keep in mind these three points.
The Correct Way to Launder Jeans and Minimize Fading
Consider Mild Laundry Detergent
General laundry detergents are effective, but that also means a greater chance of fading. When laundering jeans, try to use neutral laundry detergents perfect for delicate or stylish items.
Wash in Cold Water
Although certain stains such as oil come out easily when washed with hot or warm water, higher the water temperature greater the chances of color fading. Therefore, make sure you wash jeans in cold water.
Consider Gentle Wash Cycles
Due to washing with regular cycles the fabric of jeans experiences heavy friction and thus quickly fades due to higher rotation. Therefore, choose gentle wash cycles, like “dry” or “hand wash” cycles.
Techniques for Maintaining Black Jeans
Many people think twice before buying black jeans and the reason is that black jeans fade quickly and are easily noticeable. Also, the dust accumulation is high due to static electricity generated due to friction.
But instead of avoiding buying black jeans why not understand and follow proper ways of laundering black jeans.
Ways to Minimize Dust Accumulation on Black Jeans
Use an Anti-static Spray
There are anti-static sprays available in the market that you can use. It not only minimizes static buildup but also eliminates static that’s already built up.
The spray does not remove any
Use a laundry softener to finish the wash to prevent development of static electricity. This way, the dust will be less likely to cling.
Wash your jeans separately as laundering with other items can cover your jeans in lint.
Remember to regularly empty your washing machine’s lint catcher as well. If it’s filled, freely floating lint will also cling to clothing.
Removing Dust from Black Jeans
Some dust buildup is inevitable due to the static electricity that results from friction with tops and other reasons.
Use a lint roller, remover, or brush to remove dust and lint.
You can use duct and masking tape for the same. But avoid strongly adhesive products because they’ll cause napping.
