Some clothes may look amazing when they are faded but the same does not apply for faded jeans.

Everyone has gone through that heartbreak when their favorite pair of dark jeans start fading. They start to look old and don’t compliment your outfit no matter what you pair them with.

Keeping the color intact however all boils down to how they are washed however. Here are 4 tips on how to wash your jeans and keep them from fading.

1.Don’t wash them all the time

The more you wash your dark jeans, the higher the chances of the color fading away. Instead of always doing a full wash on jeans, opt to clean out stains with a cloth and water.
