Last Friday my sister and I went shopping to purchase our first pair of Madewell jeans. I was on the hunt for a quality pair of black skinny pants that wouldn't fade or get ruined so quickly as many of my cheaper black jeans have. I tried on the most comfortable pair of jeans ever and before I left asked the worker if she had any tips for washing jeans so that they don't fade or shrink. And this is what she said:
Put them in an air-tight zip top bag and place them in the freezer over night.
Then the Heavens sang and my world made sense. The freezer disinfects them and brings them back to original size after being stretched out from wearing them. She also said that she originally read this on the Madewell blog, which should be mentioned for being so awesome. Now I'm going to go read their blog more often.
Have a great weekend!
