Denim – Don’t’ Let Your Jeans Get the Blues
Are you stressed that your jeans are looking distressed? There’s a few simple solutions for that. Since wearing blue jeans is probably a very common part of your lifestyle for work our outside of work, it’s best to understand how to preserve them so you’ll always look pulled together.
First things first, buy durable jeans. Jeans typically can last a really long time however those constructed with thicker fabric and includes the weight on the label can help you determine its durability. A weight of over 4 ounces or 400g is best and will give you longer wear out of your jeans. Secondly, understand that you do not need to wash them after every wear. Because sweating mostly occurs on the upper part of your body, your jeans wouldn’t need a frequent wash unless you’ve been out wallering around in mounds of mud or dirt. When you do wash your jeans, turn them inside out, use the cold cycle and preferably never dry them in the drying machine if you can help it. Instead, hang them to dry avoiding all direct sunlight. If at some time you must dry them in the machine, keep them inside out and put them in the machine. Dry cleaning works extremely well too if you prefer someone else washing them rather than you. Taking the time to pay a little attention to the way you care for your jeans will not only help preserve the life of your jeans but keep you looking denim fresh all the time.
