Layfkhak: how to wash jeans so that they do not sit down


A source:

Do you have your favorite jeans, stretched from socks to fit your shape, which do not crush or rub anywhere? And how do you feel when you wash them and you have to stretch them carefully again?

Or maybe the opposite is true? You've lost weight, your jeans are loose, but do you want more “support” from them? Erase denim properly teach

In a situation where you hate to get into clean, but sat down jeans, you can use the Victoria Beckham method - and almost never erase them (until you spill ketchup on them or something similar). The fabric experts partly agree with the “peppercorn” - it’s really not worth washing your jeans often.

But we have a cooler life hack: put your jeans in an egg, an egg in a duck, a duck in a hare - a zippered plastic bag (or better in two), and put it in the freezer for 24 hours! The main thing is to make sure that the bag is securely closed, otherwise the fabric will absorb all the aromas of the refrigerator. The frosty air will remove all odors (from the jeans) and freeze all the dirt, then you can pick it off without deforming the jeans.

But if dirt stains are not removed by cold alone, there is another option. Soak jeans in the bathroom (not in a basin, pants should lie like kings, stretching both legs) with soap (from washing powder buttons can lose their luster) for half an hour, and then wash them with your own hands and a clothes brush.

On the subject: How to choose the perfect jeans that will last you years

By the way, you need to pour the powder on the brush, and not on the thing. Yes, the honor and the truth is too much, but you will get jeans in the same form in which you put them in the bath. And it is better to dry them without twisting, you need to hang jeans with clothespins at the waist, and not to throw them over the dryer bar.

But if you need jeans to fit without fail, we also made some tips. The main thing, do not forget that with decreasing volumes, the length will also decrease.

  • First, wash only in hot water - and positively fix by rinsing alternately in the hot, then in the cold (as in the fairy tale about the Hunchback Horse).
  • Secondly, if you do it in a typewriter, then put the maximum number of revolutions. True, such an operation should be carried out not too often - the fibers of the fabric deteriorate in jeans and the color suffers. By the way, it is better to do this without washing powder so that they do not shed, so washing separately, shrinking separately.
  • Thirdly (and at the very least), you can try to boil the 30 thing for a minute in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly.
