How To Wash Vintage Jordache Jeans
Are you wondering how to wash vintage Jordache jeans? Washing vintage jeans in a washing machine is okay as long as any loose seams are mended before attempting to wash or wear the jeans. Read the care tag and follow instructions on care for further advice.
- Pretreat any stain on vintage Jordache jeans. Use a stick or spray pretreater on stains, rubbing it into the fabric and allowing it enough time to penetrate the fibers and loosen the stain before washing. Ink stains can be faded by spraying hair spray (pump or aerosol) onto the fabric. Use enough spray to saturate the affected areas. Allow the spray about 15-30 minutes to work itself into the fibers.
- Turn the jean fabric inside out to wash. Turning the jeans inside out will prevent color from fading in the wash. If you want to add color, try washing the vintage Jordache jeans with same color jeans for a deeper shade.
- Fill the washing machine with cold water. Adjust the cold water setting if you are washing the vintage Jordache jeans by themselves. You can wash a full load of jeans with the vintage Jordache jeans if you prefer. Run the washing machine on a normal or regular wash and rinse cycle.
- Use color stay detergent. Wash vintage Jordache jeans in a color lock or color stay type of detergent. These types of detergent help prevent fading.
- If you plan on hanging or laying the denim flat to dry, add liquid fabric softener. Use liquid fabric softener in the rinse cycle of your wash if you plan on hanging or laying the vintage Jordache jeans out to dry.
- Use a dryer to dry vintage Jordache jeans. You should do this unless the vintage jeans have never been dried in a dryer. If the jeans are good fitting and have been dried in a dryer many times, it is safe to use a dryer on a medium or normal setting.
