The One Thing You Should Never Do To Your Jeans

June 23, 2016 by Keren Leshem

So you might not like what we’ve got to say, but sometimes the truth hurts.

You shouldn’t be washing your jeans. Excuse me? You heard us, it’s actually bad for your jeans to be washed in the machineCEO of Levi’s Chip Bergh explained in his interview with Fortune Magazine that he spot cleans his jeans.

Turns out, soap and water from a machine wash wears away at the indigo coloring of your favorite denim. If you don’t machine wash, the creases and folds that come naturally from wearing your jeans will appear with different shades and contrast, giving the desired worn-in look. Not to mention, regularly washing your jeans is a HUGE consumption of water.

No one likes to wear dirty clothes (ew), but we love our jeans – so what do we do? If you don’t feel like hand scrubbing, here are some other ways to clean your jeans without machine help.

  1. Vinegar Bath. Soak your jeans in a cold-water bath with one cup of white vinegar. Soap and water wear away at the coloring of your denim, but vinegar locks in the color. Hang them up to dry and enjoy your clean jeans!
  2. Steam. Hang up your pair while you enjoy a hot, steamy shower. The steam will leave your jeans fresh and clean.
  3. Fresh Air. Hang your jeans outside to give them some fresh air – just make sure they’re not in direct sunlight.
  4. Freeze ’em. That’s right, stick your jeans in the freezer for a few hours. This method eliminates bacteria and odors.

Hopefully, these tips will make sure your favorite pair stay clean and fresh – without wasting time (and water) by the machine!
