We’re constantly inspired by the women who wear our jeans, so we invited a few to collaborate with us. These are the stories of like-minded women who are not only killing it in creative industries but also empowering other women to do the same. Here’s to women doing whatever they want in 2019..
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR
JUST BLACK DENIM
posted on 5.15.19 by Just Black Denim
When you finally find the perfect pair of jeans, you never want to take them off (and we don’t blame you). They fit like a glove and pair with everything in your wardrobe – Is there is anything better?
Unfortunately, spills happen and eventually you’ll have to wash your favorite jeans. I know what you’re thinking – The fit is never the same. While laundering your denim will eventually effect the fabric fibers, there are ways to prolong the life of your garment.
Here are 3 denim care tips, so your Just Black Denim jeans stay your favorite pair to wear for a long time.
Wash with Care
Denim is different than other fabrics. Unlike your vintage tees that are tough enough to launder with your load of towels, your jeans need a little special attention.
Caring for your denim piece-by-piece will prolong the life of your jeans, so you can enjoy that perfect fit as long as possible. Ideally, we recommend handwashing your jeans. When life gets in the way of our dream clean scenario, you can throw them in your laundry machine and wash cold with like colors. Use a mild detergent and avoid bleach, which can react negatively with the fibers in our denim.
Our perfect fits are made possible by a high percentage of spandex or stretch. Much like a rubber band, the spandex will shrink if dried at a high temperature. To avoid unwanted shrinkage, always hang your denim to dry.
Spot Clean Between Washes
We’re a California-based company that understands the importance of being good stewards of our resources. Spilled some coffee on your jeans? Try spot cleaning to save water! Use a muslin cloth and dab gently at the stain to remove. Washing your denim less will also work to extend the life of your jeans, so spot cleaning is a win-win!
Following these 3 simple tips will keep your Just Black Denim pieces looking their best. Go ahead, wear those jeans 3 days in a row, we won’t tell!
