We love the white denim we’re seeing for the spring and summer! Making sure this fabric is crisp and clean is an essential part of rocking this trend. Here is our easy-to-follow Stitch Fix method for keeping your white denim fabulously fresh all season long.
White denim can seem like a magnet for stains, attracting all kinds of dirt and debris. If you have an accidental spill on your piece, be sure to treat it immediately. If you’re on-the-go or at work, keep a stain stick handy in your purse or at your desk. If you’re without a stain stick, soak the spill in hot water and add a touch of clear soap or shampoo to treat the area.
When you get ready to place your denim in the wash, be sure to treat the stain with a specialty stain remover. Sprays and sticks both work well, but for a DIY approach, try a solution that is 1 part warm water, 1 part clear dish detergent, and 1 part hydrogen peroxide.
Keep ‘Em Separated
Wash your white denim pieces separately from other items in your laundry. This simple step can preserve the quality of the white color and keep it at its purest.
In Hot Water
White denim pieces will benefit from the stain-loosening qualities of hot water. Feel free to add an extra brightening agent like bleach or lemon juice to your all-white load.
Let There Be Light!
Sunshine can have a bleaching effect on colors, so for an added whitening boost, hang dry your white denim pieces in the sunshine.
