If your denim jeans can be laundered in the washing machine, turn them inside out first. In this way, the denim fabric won’t wear down so much.

Use cold water and washing powder to wash your jeans

Washing powders can help to keep jeans’ quality by avoiding any kind of discoloration. We also suggest washing them with cold water together with other dark clothes.

Jeans’ drying

Following fabric’s care label for drying instructions is also a key to extend our jeans’ lifespan.

Normally, if jeans are slightly moist after using a tumble drier or a specific drying program, they will enjoy a longer life. Then, flatten up as you need and let them dry in a flat surface or in a hanger.

We recommend you to wash your denim jeans after three or four uses to feel them tight as long as possible.

Hang up the jeans

A secret to extend of a pair of jeans’ lifespan after each launder is hanging them, clipped or rolled, when are coming back to your wardrobe. Doing this, the tightened denim fibers will recover again from the last use, especially on the knees and thighs.
