Do you hate when those jeans fade? If you would like to keep the pretty color to your jeans, mix some vinegar in with some cold water when you rinse them. Make sure you rinse them well after you do this. Vinegar will help preserve your jeans and keep them looking new.

This one may be surprising to you. They say to let your jeans get dirty and don’t wash them. When they say this, they are talking about the natural wear type dirty. The longer you go without washing those jeans, the longer they are going to last. Not to mention the fact that they will fit nicely. I would say wash them every five wears.

Turn those jeans inside out and do not use those powdered detergents. Powdered detergents have a thing with clinging to jeans and causing hard spots.
2. Wash Your Jeans Separately

When you do laundry, don’t toss your jeans in with all of the other clothes. It is important to hold the jeans to the side and wash them alone.
