The Right Way To Clean Your Denim


When it comes to caring for jeans, advice is almost as varied as that of caring for a newborn baby. Every information source seems to have their own ideas about taking care of something this preciousA recent article on Refinery29 suggests washing your jeans after every wear. We could hear denim heads across the globe shrieking and clinging to their precious unwashed raw selvedge. At Denim Therapy, we suggest only laundering your jeans (properly—which means not always in a washing machine) when needed. See below for our tips on cleaning denim…

raw-denim-folded

Non-raw & blended denim:

Wash your jeans as little as possible. You only need to wash them if an odor or stain develops (and remember, stains can be spot-treated). When you do wash them, do so individually in a cold wash to prevent bleeding & shrinking and use a gentle detergent like Woolite. Always air dry your jeans.

Raw denim:

Follow the same process as above if you’re going to wash them traditionally. You can also experiment with spot treatment, leaving them in the freezer to remove odor, and baking them in the oven (for the brave, only!) to remove bacteria.

Preventing color running:

To prevent dye transfer during washing, wash them once inside-out in hot water to run the “loose” dye, and then wash them again using half a cup of vinegar to set the color. Some dye may still run after this, depending on the jeans, so follow the instructions on the label of your jeans to avoid a dramatic change in appearance after washing.

A Happy Customer Wrote A Song About Us…


…and we’re obsessed with it:

Denim Therapy

I came into this place of work.
All tattered torn and feeling hurt.
I didn’t know what I would find.
A salvage bin? The trash bin line?
But they greeted me, with great big smiles
And said…”no worries”…your still in style.
They scanned my wear, from head to toe.
Did this did that, how did they know?
How many things that I would need?
A buckle loop, a patched inseam?
They made me feel, “that way again”
When I felt snug, all tight and thin.
When I strolled the streets, both day and night.
Thinking “check me out”, my game is tight!
And now I’m feeling all brand new.
And say to them, that I thank u.
For all the things that u have done.
Restoring me to my true form. 
For simply taking with kind the time.
To patch my seams, my soul, my mind.

We know one style blogger who has perfected the art of taking unexpected textiles and translating them into extremely luxe looks. Her blog, aptly named Viva Luxury, is chocked full of ways to do exactly that.

We especially love this look, where she paired her tailored black blazer with a denim button-down shirt and some printed skinny jeans. Think you can pull this off and pair your denim shirt with a sleek blazer?
