Jeans, especially denim ones, are one of the wardrobes that will never go out of style. But have you ever experienced having faded or wrinkled jeans right after washing it—despite the fact that you’ve just bought it? Well, there might be something wrong with how you wash it? So, to avoid further damage, here are some hacks for you!

1. Wash with salt

When washing the jeans for the first time, try adding a little salt on it and soak for about 30 minutes. This can make the denim look shiny.

2. Use cold water

Since using hot water in jeans can cause pants to be deformed, so might as well use the opposite—cold water.

3. Turn the pants over and wash

To reduce frontal damage to the jeans, try turning it over before putting it in the washing machines.

4. Wash once a week

If you’re washing your jeans every after use, or every day, then it’s time to stop doing so. Unless you want it fades easily.

5. Do not direct to the sunlight

Yes, the jeans will dry easily when there’s sunlight, but do not direct it to the sun to prevent it to become white or hard. Just place it in a well-ventilated place.

6. Do not iron

After washing the jeans, it will surely become wrinkled, but avoid using an iron to flatten the denim—just hang up the waist.
