okay i currently have a paif of naked & famous skinny guys, this is my first pair of denim so these are dumb questions, i just need straight answers.
1. whats the difference between washing the jeans and just soaking them?
2. do i turn the jeans inside out for both the soak and wash? and a wash i just throw in soap?
and then for both of these i just air dry?
sorry for the lame questions.
Don't be so hard on yourself!! Hahaha
1. Soaking: Cold/warm/hot water in tub (temperature dependant on how much shrinkage you're looking for), let jeans sit in the tub for 30-45ish mins.
Washing: Same thing as soaking but with detergent and minimal agitation.
2. Inside out = less indigo loss
Not inside out = more indigo loss
Personal preference really.
Wash = "throw in soap"
Yes to air dry
