Style for Style: How to Properly Wash Jeans

We all have a pair of favorite jeans that we want to last a lifetime. Unfortunately dry-cleaning is expensive and handwashing is a pain. The problem with machine washing and drying jeans is they tend to fade and lose their stretch over time. Fab to the rescue!

To learn how to care for jeans

Wear jeans a couple of times before washing — unless of course, they're dirty or have a stain. Less washing will help preserve the color of your jeans. Invest in a detergent that specializes in color washes such as Caldrea's Dark Wash ($12). Don't forget to wash in cold water — hot water will melt that gorgeous dark stain away. Also, set your dryer to low or medium heat to avoid over drying, which can cause your jeans to lose Lycra and thus, lose that precious stretch.
