A pair of good denim shorts can be found in everyone’s wardrobe. They say, when you buy a good pair of denim shorts, you basically want them to last for a long long time. It is possible to make your smart shorts last longer and keep them looking as good as they did on the day you bought them. Here are a few tips you can use.
1) Wash Them Less
Don’t wash your denim shorts too often. Doing so will make their colour fade and damage the thread quality.
2) Turn Them Inside-out
While washing your denim shorts, make sure you turn them inside-out. This will help to preserve the colour, as well as allow the inside of your shorts, which are often ignored while washing, to get more exposure to water and detergent.
3) Use Cold Water
Use cold water while washing your denim shorts. Warm or hot water could cause the fabric to shrink and fade.
4) Wash Using Vinegar and Detergent
Do you watch home care / laundry content on Instagram?
Add 2 tbsp. of vinegar to your washing machine along with a liquid laundry detergent while washing your denim shorts. If you prefer to wash your clothes in a washing machine, you can use Surf Excel Matic Liquid, which is specially formulated for washing machines and is easily available in the market.
5) Freeze Them
Another handy tip is to put your shorts in an airtight bag and place it in the freezer overnight. This will help get rid of odour and bacteria.
6) Air-Dry Them
It’s a good idea to air-dry your denim shorts. Once they are washed, simply hang them out in the open, preferably in a sunny area, to dry naturally.
There you go! Follow the simple tips above and you will notice that you’ve learnt the art of keeping your denims in their best shape.
