Fall’s here! Well, kind of. It’s been topping out at around 90 degrees recently here in New York City, but I know many of you have started experiencing some cooler temps that call for the ever-beloved denim! So, it’s absolutely imperative that we outline our denim care ASAP before we commit an irreversible snaphoozey!
After you have spent countless hours, weeks, and months of your life (literally) trying to find the perfect pair of jeans, the last thing you want is to see their color fade away after the first few wears! To avoid such tragedy, just follow my 2 simple stylist secrets and you’ll be able to hold on to your ideal hue longer!!!
1) If your denim doesn’t have stains and just needs to be “freshened up,” spray The Laundress Delicate Spray (bit.ly/1Nmg0Fo) on the inside of them and then set them on a flat surface to dry.
2) If they need a real wash, turn them inside out, zip and button them, and wash them on the gentle cycle in cold water with The Laundress Denim Wash (bit.ly/1O5KIUQ). You can dry them on low heat, right-side out (to avoid creases at the seams), and skip the fabric softener. Removing them promptly from both the washer and the dryer will help prevent wrinkles.
