How To Keep Your Colored Denim Bright & New-Looking


We snagged the following tip for you from the Glamour blog:

“Brand new denim in bold (or even dark) colors can lose its hue all over your washing machine–and all over whatever other clothes are in there. The dye can also rub off on your sofa, your white trench coat, and the camel-colored handbag you’re holding against yourself. To prevent major color running, I did some Hints-from-Heloise style searching on the internet, and discovered that there’s a super-simple trick to keep your red in check: Vinegar! Add a full cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle when you’re washing your jeans, and skip the fabric softener. Alternatively, you can soak the pants overnight in a solution of two parts vinegar to one part cold water, then run them through a regular wash. The vinegar acts as a fixing agent and keeps the dye where it belongs!”

    Can this work for dark denims too?
