How to wash your jeans to prevent wear and tear

Wearing your jeans often means you need to be a good denim mummy to prevent wear and tear. Washing them properly will help you extend their life.

Here are some tips on how to wash your jeans to help them live longer.


1. Wash your jeans only when they need it

Jeans are not a wear once and wash situation. You want to avoid washing your jeans until they get smelly or dirty - then definitely give them a wash!


2. Air out your jeans after a few wears

Hanging your jeans next to a window is a great way to air out odours without putting them through the wash.


3. Try to spot clean stains 

Spot clean your jeans if you have a small stain. Make sure you get the right stain remover as some can bleach your jeans leaving a lighter patch. If it’s a hard stain, you might need to put them through the wash.


4. Turn your jeans inside out when washing

This helps to protect the colour and the jeans when they are going through the wash.


5. Do up the button and zip before washing

 This protects the hardware and makes sure they don’t catch on anything.


5. Use a colour safe detergent 

A colour safe detergent will preserve the colour by helping fabrics hold onto the dye.


6. Put your washing machine on a gentle/hand wash cold setting

A hot more intense setting can shrink and damage your jeans overtime - no one wants that!
