How To Keep Your Denim Dark

I love a good pair of dark wash denim jeans. They are practically all I wear. Keeping them the same color as when I purchased them is another story. I have worked long and hard to find the best ways to keep them as dark as the original without my hands still turning blue while wearing them.

  • Turn your denim inside out, and only wash denim in the load, no other clothing

  • Use cold water on a gentle wash cycle add mild detergent plus 1tsp white vinegar per pair of denim in wash

  • Vinegar helps set the dye, is a natural cleaning agent and odor remover

  • Also try a specialized detergent for darks

  • Add fabric softener for fresh smell and to soften clothing

  • Lay out until partially dry then on low heat, do not over dry will fade color

  • Wear denim 3 times before washing again

Hope these tips help.
