Keep Your Denim Pants From Fading With This Easy Hack

A wardrobe staple in every wardrobe, dark wash denim jeans are the perfect pair for almost every occasion. It is a go-to item when we are in a fix on what to wear. The best part about it lies in the fact that denim doesn’t need a regular wash, which also means jeans all day every day! Having said that, the tough fabric tends to bleed colour and that results in faded jeans. Nothing is more upsetting than finding that perfect pair of mom jeans that fit like a dream and seeing it fade post a few washes. Being such a major part of our closet, its important that this versatile item is taken care of and that’s where our work begins. This hack to take care of your jeans is probably the only one you need to read.

Keeping it simple, all you have to do is add half a cup of distilled vinegar in your regular washing cycle. Yeah, that’s pretty much it. Acetic acid in the vinegar helps lock the dye and prevents indigo from bleeding. The hack also works if you hand launder your jeans. Just add vinegar in a bucket of cold water and soak your jeans in. Fun fact – Vinegar also kills natural bacteria that grow on your jeans. With all that info we just shared, we hope to see your jeans looking fresher than ever.
