Curious about the best way to prolong the life of your Jeans? Here’s everything you need to know - plus results of our detergent experiment.
We want you to get the most bang for your buck, which means making your jeans last as long as possible.
Wearing jeans makes them dirty; washing jeans maakes them clean. However, it also wears down the yarns and fades the color.
Key Factors For Preserving Any Jeans:
Washing & Drying
We generally recommend washing inside out on cold and hang dry. Now, that doesn’t mean you can’t toss these jeans in the dryer - it just means they won’t holdup as long as jeans that have been air dried.
The more frequently you wash your jeans (or any clothes), the faster that washer will wear them down - just look at your lint catcher for proof. So, anytime you can remove small spots without a wash, do it! General rule of thumb with any clothes is that the more gently you treat them - the longer the garment will last. This is particularly true for the color on our dark wash jeans.
How do you keep your washing gentle? Lower temperatures helps a great deal. So, use cold water in the wash, and the lowest temperature setting on your dryer - if you’re opting out of air drying.
Keep an eye on how much detergent you’re using. Using too much detergent can be one of the quickest ways to breakdown your new jeans.
Also, keep an eye on what type of detergent you’re using.
We recently did a study and found Woolite Dark preserved the darker color better than standard detergent. Why? I don’t know, but it does. I haven’t tested other “for dark color” detergents, but my guess is that they will produce similar results over time. For my jeans, I go with Woolite (no affiliation - just like ‘em).
Clearly, the Woolite Dark + jeans-only-washes work best at preserving the color of your jeans from the very first wash.
Now, for you denim-heads that want to keep these beauties mint, there are a couple other techniques you might want to try - at the expense of convenience.

When I read about Dearborn Denim I was intrigued. American materials. American workers. I was concerned about not being able to try them on before buying. But for only $60 and a fair return policy, I decided they were worth a try. I used the fit guide and ordered. A few days later, my skepticism turned into a smile. The jeans were well constructed and the material was perfect for summer wear. It had some stretch, which ensured a good fit. I smiled when I put them on. $60 well spent.

Probably one of, if not the, most comfortable pair of jeans I've ever worn. Sometimes denim companies will have their sizes off an inch or two...probably, in my opinion, to make people feel slimmer than they are. These, however, are spot on, so make sure you take a tape measure of your waist before placing an order.

When you return an item, you lose the associated credit you originally earned by buying the item in the first place. Sound kind of confusing? Let's run through an example: say you spent $50 towards a 'spend $100, earn 100 points' promotion, and you decide to buy a $20 item, which bumps you up to $70. If you decide to return that item, your progress would also go back down to $50 - it's just like you hadn't bought the item in the first place.
