Jeans are a hard-wearing cotton fabric with a particular weave, however they should not be washed in the same way as cottons, because jeans are mostly dark in colour and fade easily. If you want to minimise the amount of dye washing out, you should select a low temperature and a gentle programme and avoid putting a full load in the drum. Filling the drum or spinning at high speeds may cause the material to crease and some colour abrasion. We recommend the following settings for washing, drying and ironing your jeans and other denim clothing.
- Machine wash at 30°C permanent press.
- Dry clean with any solvent except trichloroethylene.
- Use non-chlorine bleach.
- Use a low ironing temperature.
- Do not tumble dry.
