Why are jeans tinted?

Now we will try to understand the current situation.

Reason 1

The fact is that the fabric for sewing jeans is dyed in the right shade with special solutions. And it happens that the dye is not always absorbed by the fibers of the material completely. Usually, after the first wash, the paint goes away and the problem disappears before it appears. At the same time, do not worry that your denim pants will lose their brightness. Water will only wash away excess paint. But in rare cases, the problem is solved in this way. It happens that after two washes, the legs are painted. So now we will consider what to do if clothes are painted.

Important! You can check before buying how much your newly purchased jeans will shed. Directly in the fitting room, take a piece of white natural fabric (preferably cotton), slightly moisten and wipe the leg. If you saw a print of paint, then get ready for the fact that they will paint your legs.

Reason 2

Now jeans with wear are very fashionable, this is the highlight of many models. In most cases, the fabric of such pants is processed in a similar way in production. Intentionally abrading and damaging the pants material.

But even classic blue jeans look much more interesting after the first wash, when the material takes on a slightly lightened and well-worn look. That is precisely why dark-colored jeans are deliberately not used with durable paint.

Reason 3

When dyeing jeans, natural dyes are used that do not have such high resistance as synthetic ones. Therefore, the first opinion may be erroneous, and you should not immediately conclude that the quality of your fashionable and expensive pants is poor. You just need to think about what to do so that the jeans do not fade so much.

Important! Another reason is the use of dyes of poor quality, which many manufacturers of cheap clothes sin. In order not to encounter such a problem, read also about how to choose quality jeans.

  3. To avoid damage to the structure of the fabric, soak the pants in saline for no more than 30 minutes.


  1. After the set soaking time has elapsed, remove the pants and squeeze slightly.
  2. Empty the container from the old water and fill it with new one.

  5. For washing, you can use an unpainted brush with a soft pile or wash it in the usual way by hand.


After washing, jeans must be thoroughly rinsed, and several times. You can carry out the rinsing procedure in the bathroom to ensure the breadth of maneuver. It is very convenient to do it like this:

  1. Put the item on the bottom of the bathtub and water it.
  2. Systematically turning the jeans in different directions, do this “bathing” for at least 10 minutes.

Important! After the first rinse, you will notice that the water has changed its usual color. And there is nothing surprising, since the liquid washes out excess paint from the fibers of the material.

  1. Rinse first with warm water. Add more and more cold water each time.
  2. And the last touch of rinsing: to complete this procedure is better in a small container with the addition of 50-70 ml of vinegar. This is necessary to fix the color.

Important! Rinse the denim pants until you see that the water has stopped changing color.
