Why you shouldn’t ever wash your jeans


تستخدم لرمي الجينز الخاص بك في غسل؟ وفقًا للخبراء – إنك تفعل كل شيء على نحو خاطئ ØŒ حيث يزعمون أن الدنيم الموثوق به يجب أن يتم وضعه في الغسالة ØŒ إن حدث ذلك.

الفكرة التي يجب ألا تغسلها بنطلون جينز تأتي من ملك الدينيم نفسه والرئيس التنفيذي لشركة ليفي والرئيس تشيب بيرغ.

وصل بيرغ إلى عناوين الصحف لأول مرة في عام 2014 عندما اعترف بأنه لم يغسل أبداً سراويل الجينز المفضلة لديه منذ عقد من الزمن. في الأسبوع الماضي ، كرر البيان لشبكة CNN .

“If you talk to real denim aficionados, they will all agree you should never put your jeans in the wash,” he told the US broadcaster.

“I spot clean my jeans when they need to be washed. Worst case, I hand wash my jeans. And I do it myself. I mean I love my jeans, and I take good care of them.”

So what’s the verdict – should you be chucking your jeans in with your coloured wash, or does Bergh have a point?

John Reid, managing director at clothing retailer Garment Quarter, agrees Bergh’s advice makes a lot of sense.

“Washing your denim jeans can alter the make-up of the material itself, and in fact, your favourite pair of jeans don’t need to be washed as frequently as you may think,” he tells Yahoo UK.

“The sheer amount of water that they are exposed to in a washing machine can be the culprit for affecting the look and colour of the denim by fading over time.

“Cotton based denim jeans with little stretch to them will become more comfortable over time.”

There is, however, an exception to the rule – and that’s if your jeans are made from a material blend containing elastane, rather than a raw denim blend.

“If jeans have an elastane component, regular washing can actually help the fabric to shrink back down after being stretched due to wear.”

So what about your other (ie non-stretchy) jeans? Here’s what you can do to avoid compromising your jeans in the washing machine.

Spot clean them

If it’s simply a case of a food (read: chocolate) stain or two, you can use this method to clean them up.

“Keep your designer jeans in top condition by ‘spot cleaning’ any stains by using a toothbrush and a mixture of water with a gentle detergent. Doing this will not only reduce the risk of fading the dye, but you’ll also be helping the environment by reducing your water usage.”

Freeze them

Your freezer’s not just for peas and leftovers – apparently, you can use it to keep your jeans hygienic without compromising their look, according to Reid.

“Fold the jeans and place inside an airtight freezer bag before putting them in the freezer overnight and any bacteria will be killed by the cold temperatures,” he advises.

Try a neutraliser spray

Another method for freshening up worn, but not soiled, jeans is to use a dry wash spray. Day2 is a range of aerosol sprays said to work in the same way as dry shampoo for clothes.

They even produce a denim-specific spray, called Day2 Dry Wash Spray Denim (£7.50 for 200ml) which is said to protect jeans fibres from wear and tear, slowing the fading process.

Hand wash them

Got your jeans really, really dirty and itching for a more thorough clean? Make like Levi’s Bergh, and hand wash your jeans in cold water.

“Or hop in the shower with them on and soak them down and rinse them off — I do that too,” he suggested to CNN. Well, that’s one way to wake up.

Wash with cold water

لا يتوهم غسل الجينز الخاص بك؟ إذا كنت تشعر حقًا بالحاجة إلى وضعها في الغسالة ، فإن ريد يوفر الطريقة التالية لضمان الحد الأدنى من الضرر.

“يعتقد الكثير من الناس أنه لا يجب وضع الجينز في الغسالة ØŒ ولكن إذا كانت هناك حاجة إلى تنظيف عميق وجاد ØŒ ما عليك سوى تحويل الجينز إلى الداخل للخارج ØŒ وفك السوستة ØŒ ثم الغسل بألوان مماثلة في مكان بارد.

“هذا سيحمي الأجزاء المعدنية من الجينز ويقلل من فرصة تلاشي الصبغة”.
