A step-by-step guide for washing jeans with washing machine


If you want to wash your jeans without fading, follow these step by step instruction to keep your jeans looking good and enjoy your denim favorites for years.

1- Read the label

Wash the jeans separately from other items to avoid dye transfer. And before that make sure check the label on the garment.

2- Turn the jeans inside out

If you tend to wash the jeans in the washing machine, turn them inside out before placing in the machine. This helps minimize the abrasion that causes fading as well as the wear that can happen along the hems, pockets, and fly and waistband edges. It’s also important to zip zippers and fasten buttons and snaps because it prevents snagging other items and helps keep the jeans in shape.


 Some jeans are ripped with holes. To keep them from fraying more than you want, clip the openings or edges together with a clip.



3- Use the cold water

Make sure to wash the jeans with other deep-colored clothes and cold water. It will help improve the quality of your jeans, and protect them from discoloration, pilling, and fading.

4-Dry the jeans

Read the dry instruction on the fabric label. In general, you should smooth them into shape and let them dry on a flat surface or a hanger.

The cons & pros of hand-washing

*Hand washing will also reduce the amount of friction applied to your jeans which will help them last longer.

* The downside to hand washing is that it takes a lot of time and generates mixed results. Typically hand washing is only as good as how much you are willing to scrub the garment. Each type of stain may require a different cleaning treatment and that makes it difficult to remove every type of stain by using soap and water alone.



Advice on Washing Jeans

 -There is a trick to reduce bleeding. At the first time you wash a pair of jeans, Add a half cup of white vinegar to the water to help set the dye. The vinegar odor will dissipate after your jeans dry.

-Separate light and dark jeans. The color that rubs off may be impossible to remove from other items.

–  The more garments you stuff into a load, the more wear and tear your fabrics will endure. If there is no room to move, zippers and rivets can snag, and stitching can break. The clothes should circulate freely.

– If you over wash your jeans, the fabric will down over time and shorten the life of your jeans. So, only wash your jeans when necessary.
