How To: Care For Coated Jeans
One of the biggest trends in denim (that refuses to die) is the onset of coated and treated washes. They look a bit more dressed up and can fake a leather legging in a pinch. The problem? They're infinitely harder to care for than your tried and true jeans and they show their wear quite quickly. If you're going to dry clean them, ask for environmentally-friendly treatment because the high heat in regular dry cleaning can warp the luster (despite the tag on most saying "dry clean only"). Hand washing is also super safe, just use a gentle soap and make sure they're inside out when cleaning them. And if you're into something out there, store them in the freezer for a quick bacteria-killing jolt.
