Treat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Focus on susceptible areas such as the pockets and pant hem.
Stain Solution is ideal for protein and tannin stains, such as wine, coffee, ink, grass, urine, blood, and old, set-in stains such as pit stains.
The Wash & Stain Bar works the material to remove dirt, grease, oil, and makeup.
To remove odor, presoak the item for 30 minutes in cool water mixed with 1/3 cup of Scented Vinegar.
Have Raw Denim? Dye transfer and bleeding can be a "dark" reality of raw denim. To help set dye, presoak in a bath of cool water and Scented Vinegar. Always wash separately.
Prepare to wash by turning denim inside out to prevent abrasion and lengthen the life of colorant dyes.
Place inside of a Mesh Washing Bag to protect zippers, buttons, and any special detailing, embellishment, or distressing.
Select the normal cycle on your machine and use the appropriate water temperature:
Make sure the water temperature is cool when laundering blue or dark denim.
When washing white denim, select hot water and add 1 capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to the load.
Add the appropriate amount of Denim Wash according to the machine type and load size.
Dry & Finish
Avoid the dryer if you can! Line dry denim to prevent fading, shrinking, and extra "wear and tear".
It's not necessary to launder denim after every wear. Use Fabric Fresh Classic between wears to keep denim smelling fresh.
Freezing denim is not a cleaning method; however, steaming will help remove bacteria, and Fabric Fresh Classic will refresh and deodorize.
Always launder denim prior to making any alterations in fit or length. Use hot water and a hot dryer cycle to ensure there will be no further shrinkage.
All techniques are based on textile science. Not all garments perform and react as science would predict.
