To prevent a new pair of jeans from fading when washed, soak them in 4 tbsp. of vinegar mixed with 5 quarts of water for about 30 minutes. For added insurance, wash them inside out.
i recommend also drying them inside out after washing them inside out in cold water..this goes for all coloured clothing. it not only saves the colour of the clothing but also reduces piling and keeps your clothing looking new. this is years of practice speaking keeping my kids clothing looking new! everybody loves my hand-me-downs ;o)
Also dont dry them. The heat takes away its color.
dont use it my jeans are gone .
they fell apart.
and smell like shit
My grandmother also taught me to wash jeans inside out...another great thing she taught me to do was to only dry them in the dryer for about 8 minutes (while still inside out), just to get the wrinkles out, then hang them up to dry. This process has more than DOUBLED the "life" of my jeans. ;~D
Question: Do you do this every time you wash them or just the first time? Thanks!
Do you soak them one time or before you wash every time?
That's an "oldie", but a good one--- does help
