Jeans come in all cut, color, and conditions. Nowadays the worn look has taken over in popularity amongst the population, but maintaining the appearance will ALWAYS be an obsession. At Jiffy Clean Laundry & Dry Cleaning, we have devised 4 critical ideas that we have used and currently use in our laundry service Macon, Ga.
The first wash on most heavily dyed jeans will see the most color bleed. We at Jiffy Clean Laundry & Dry Cleaning pay close attention to these items and wash them separately in anticipation of color bleed. We reduce color bleeding by of course laundering in cold water. This is critical. Pick a good detergent we have our favorite as you do too. Next we add vinegar to the washing cycle and proprietary softeners to condition the water. Yes, there will be color bleed , but there will be markedly less if launder any other way.
If you’re trying to figure out how to prevent jeans from fading, you might need to look first at how often you’re washing them Some people skip washing jeans. Yes, in an effort to preserve jeans some people will wear jeans multiple times before washing. To each his own, but not how Jiffy Clean Laundry & Dry Cleaning condones. We suggest a good ole hand wash especially in cases of ripped or worn jeans. Often machine washing is way too aggressive and will exacerbate the weathered appearance or expand designed rips. We do suggest when hand washing, use the wash procedure in Tip# 1 and rinse thourougly.
Yes you can dry jeans, but the level of dryness is key. Dring jeans to bone dry status is not a good idea. Rather, dry them to dampness on medium temp.. Damp dryness helps preserve the jean’s fibers allowing longevity in fit and appearance. Over drying will lead to holes and in some cases holes designed as fashion to increase in size. Also, over drying ever so slightly changes the fit of jeans. After removing from dryer hang jeans in your shower or any place that has good air ventilation and flow. So be mindful when washing jeans and plan ahead knowing it may take a day for jeans to fully dry.
Whether ripped, faded, painted on, or classic denim; jeans are the “go to” pants for many people. Even though the worn look has taken over in popularity amongst the population, maintaining the appearance of jeans will always be an obsession.
