Tips to Give Your Favourite Jeans a Longer Life Span
Published on 24th May, 2019
Jeans are the most loved pieces of clothing and it takes a lot of effort in buying as well as taking care of them. Even after finding your favourite jeans and taking great care of them, you may sometimes find yourself in a situation where you may be thinking why it did not last any longer? Why did it lose its charm in such a short time? LaundryMan has curated a few tips that will ensure your favourite jeans accompany you for years to come. Let’s have a look:
Yes, it is important to know what to buy before planning anything about maintenance. It is worth noting that certain brand sizes perfectly fit you whereas the same from another brand may be a little tight or loose. Any difference in the size can easily affect the lifespan of your jeans. So, it is important to get in touch with the sales representative as they are well-familiar with the fabric-weaknesses of their product. Also, buy heavyweight jeans as they contain more cotton. Even if you are a heavy user, your jeans will never disappoint you.
Don’t wash your jeans too often or after every wear. If there is a small spot on your jeans, wash it with a wet cloth. Detergents, nowadays, are very concentrated, and, hence, can damage the fabric due to its excess chemicals. Use very little quantity of detergent when washing your jeans. In order to prevent any shrinkage or stretch, wash your jeans with cold water while turning it inside out. Hand washing your jeans is the most ideal way to ensure a longer lifespan. Always prefer to hang your jeans when drying. This will prevent any change in the shape or colour of the fabric.
You may be one of those who love to wear the same pair of jeans week-in and week out. Even if you have bought an expensive pair of jeans, it does not justify the amount of stress you are putting on the fabric. Make sure you are not using them for more than 2 days in a row. Also, at times, minute damage appears on the jeans. It is important to take care of that at the earlier rather than waiting for fabric-killing mega damage.
Even after following all the suggested washing and wearing tips, your jeans may still show signs of damage. So, we have got a few maintenance tips as well. Firstly, never opt for dry cleaning service when it comes to your favourite pair of jeans. Your jeans may smell fresh, but the chemicals used in dry cleaning can take a heavy toll on the fabric and eventually make it weak. If your jeans bear a weird odour, don’t worry, place them in a freezer overnight or in a pre-heated oven for 50-60 minutes. Your favourite jeans will be as fresh as the morning breeze.
