1. Wash infrequently: Jeans do not need to be washed after every wear. Instead, try spot cleaning any stains and air them out between wears.

  2. Use cold water: When you do wash your jeans, use cold water to help preserve the color and prevent shrinkage.

  3. Avoid bleach and fabric softener: Both of these can damage the denim and affect the fit of your jeans.

  4. Turn inside out: To preserve the color and prevent fading, turn your jeans inside out before washing them.

  5. Hang dry: Avoid using a dryer as the heat can shrink and damage the denim. Instead, hang your jeans to dry in a well-ventilated area.

  6. Store them properly: Fold or hang your jeans, avoid storing them in tight spaces, or otherwise squishing them, they will keep their shape better.

  7. Avoid dry cleaning: Jeans are typically made of cotton, which can be damaged by dry cleaning chemicals. If you must have them cleaned, hand washing or machine washing on a gentle cycle is the best option.
