How to care for you Lady K Loves jeans

Published: 4th February 2015


We know you love your jeans so much! It’s fantastic getting loads of responses from you all saying that you are so happy that you can finally wear some jeans.

 

So here’s how to look after them in the best way. There should be a wash care label, but that has limited space, so here’s some more info.

 

Firstly, don’t wash them, not if you can help it. The less you wash them, the less the fabric gets thrown around and rubbed against its self. 

 

In fact…FIRSTLY, try not to blow them out. When you get home from work, put on your slouches, sitting cross-legged, on your knees, or anything which means you’re stretching the knees out will ruin the shape. So when you can, avoid it.

 

Then don’t wash them that much.

When you do, depending on how dirty they are, turn them inside out and do on a 30 degree quick wash. This will basically give them a quick rinse and tighten them back up.  Keeping them inside out helps to keep the colour in so less fading, and less ruining of other things in the wash too. 

 

Please pleaseplease! Don’t put jeans in the tumble drier. Our wearing and use of jeans has changed dramatically over the years, they are far more a fashion item than the hard wearing work wear they started life out as. HOWEVER, tumble driers kill your clothes. If you can, use it for things like towels, hoodies, socks, gym kit. Basically nothing you love.

Once your jeans are washed, pull them flat, so smooth out creases in the legs, lye them flat and either hang to dry on the washing line or on a radiator, clothes horse whatever, but flat, smoothed out to remover creases and not in the tumble drier.

 

 

Lastly, put them back on and think, ‘Oh jeeze these are tight!’, then go out and have fun.
