How to Stop Black Jeans From Fading

It's all in the washing technique. Here's how to stop your black jeans from turning grey.

Finding a pair of black jeans that flatters your body shape can be challenge enough, so when that pair begins to fade and turn grey after a month or two of washing, it's even more disappointing. 

To avoid this wardrobe drama, we spoke to the laundry experts at the GHI to ask them how to stop black jeans fading and for some advice on how we can avoid this happening to our next pair of jet black jeans that go with everything, make our legs looks slim and are the staple of every woman's trouser collection.

And it turns out that it's all about how we launder them. These are the GHI's top tips…

How to stop black jeans from fading: 

1. Always wash inside out.

2. Close zip and do up button (helps keep the shape).

3. Double check you haven't left any tissues in your pocket, as the fluff from these can really stick.

4. Always use a detergent designed for coloured items, as these do not contain bleaches.

5. Don't tumble dry or dry in the sunlight. But what can we do if our favourite black jeans have already begun their journey to greydom?

How to make black jeans black again: 

The GHI recommend buying washing machine dyes that are easy to use and do not harm your washing machine. And don't be afraid to dye your jeans more than once to get them back to their original darkness.However, make sure you check the label on your jeans before doing so, just in case. 

Washing machine dyes can be bought online from Amazon, eBay and specialised clothing shops.
