Freezing your jeans as a method of cleaning is a topic we’ve discussed a few times over the years, but it’s always worth a re-visit for the sake of newly converted denim-heads looking for a way to clean their jeans sans-water (also, when we saw the gorgeous silver jeans in this Intermix blog pic, we knew we needed an excuse to re-post it). Here’s the run-through…
“To ensure your go-to denim stays fresh, we encourage freezing your jeans rather than washing. Associate buyer, Barbie Cavaleri, swears by this chilling technique and calls it her “at-home dry clean.”
The ‘freeze clean’ method will remove bacteria, preserve dark dyes and special finishes, and restore shape. After investing in this season’s trends, like coated jeans and leather detailing, be sure to use this method to maintain your denim’s waxy look and shine! Here’s how…
5 Easy Steps to ‘Freeze Clean’ Denim:
Step 1: Spot clean stains and let jeans dry completely
Step 2: Fold lengthwise twice, then smooth out wrinkles
Step 3: Place jeans in zip lock bag and close tightly without air
Step 4: Place jeans in freezer for a minimum of 24 hours
Step 5: Thaw, wear, repeat!”
