Steps To Starch Jeans
- To get a perfectly starched pair of jeans, it is important to wash the jeans thoroughly.
- Thus to start off, turn your jeans inside out and put it into the washing machine.
- Set the water temperature to cool or warm water, as per your choice.
- Add a little amount of laundry detergent to the jeans and pour enough quantity of liquid starch into the fabric softener dispenser of the machine. Depending upon the brand of the liquid starch you are using, add the appropriate amount (read the instructions on the bottle carefully).
- Allow the washing machine to wash your jeans and wait till it completes the entire cycle.
- Thereafter, remove the jeans and turn it right side out. Dry it either in the clothes dryer or hang it on a clothesline.
- Wait till the jeans are thoroughly dried and hang them on a hanger.
- Make a solution by mixing equal amounts of liquid starch and cold water in a spray bottle. Close the bottle and shake well to blend evenly.
- Switch on the iron and set it on medium-high heat setting.
- Spread the jeans on the ironing board, arranging them in the fashion where you want the crease to show.
- Spray the starch solution over the denim to slightly dampen the fabric from about 8 to 10 inches distance.
- Iron the part of the fabric you have sprayed, back and forth, creating a neat and clean crease.
- Spray the jeans on the next portion and continue ironing till you finish starching the jeans completely and get the desired stiffness and crease.
- Hang the jeans on a hanger and check whether all the parts have been properly starched or not. If you’ve missed any portion, repeat spraying and ironing until perfectly done.
If you assume the procedure to be lengthy, then yes, it is. But the efforts are worth, after all. Hope the above steps have been victorious in teaching you how to starch jeans at home. Good luck!
