The Ultimate Guide to Caring for Denim

Posted on Posted in Blog

In this world full of disappointments, finding your perfect pair of jeans is a miracle. Now that you have found your one true match, you just don’t want to give it up.

We understand how you feel. Here are a few tips to help you take care of your denims, so you don’t have to go through the misery of finding new jeans and jackets every time.

Before diving into the details, know the difference between raw and pre-washed denims.

  • Raw denims: These jeans haven’t been washed before. They are darker in color than pre-washed denims. After multiple wears, they stretch to fit the contours of your body. These may slightly shrink in water.
  • Pre-washed denims: These jeans have undergone washing before being delivered to you. This helps them maintain their original shape and you encounter fewer problems while washing them.

Tips to Avoid Denim Disasters

  • Avoid washing too often: Wash your denims once after at least 5 wears to prevent stretching. While washing, be sure to turn them inside out before chucking them in washing machines. If they get stained, use a toothbrush or a damp cloth with mild soap to remove the stain.
  • Use cold water: Always use cold water to wash your denims. It protects the fabric from fading and stretching.
  • Air-dry your denims: After washing, make sure to air-dry them instead of using a dryer. This will prevent shrinking and fading and the sunlight would provide a natural bleaching action to your white denims.
  • Freeze bacteria: Since raw denim has not been exposed to water before, it could shrink during the wash. To avoid this, put your denim in a Ziploc bag; seal and put it in the freezer overnight. This kills the bacteria lingering on your denims.
  • Get your denims tailored: Be sure to get an appropriate alteration of your denim before you are ready to wear it. Or if it is an emergency alteration, we’re here to save the day by providing you with the urgent alters on the same day.
