Instructions

  1. 1

    Choose a good quality washing powder. Use one without bleach added and made specifically for dark clothes.

  2. 2

    Turn jeans inside out. Wash in cold water instead of warm. Use the shortest wash cycle and preferably the gentle cycle.

  3. 3

    Dry jeans on a clothes line instead of in the dryer. If necessary put in the dryer on lowest setting when damp dry; this keeps the jeans from becoming too stiff.

  4. 4

    Use black powder clothes dye in the wash to keep the colour looking fresh. Add to the wash once a month or as needed. Clothes dye is available at fabric stores and most retail stores.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not hang jeans in sunlight to dry.
