Dry Cleaning Raw Denim

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Does dry cleaning affect the indigo? Is it better or worse than doing a quick cold wash with a little woolite? there's a green cleaner near my house I've been thinking about taking my skulls there after about 3 weeks of hard wear everyday. They're beginning to smell a little ripe.

Antimicrobial febreze and airing them out helps, but not enough. I need to be clean. I have heard though that dry cleaning may not be good for indigo.

Dry cleaning harms the fabric. A few times doesn't hurt but definitely don't go an dry clean your jeans every three months. If you need to, just throw them in the wash.

My experience is that Dry Cleaning doesn't let the "life" creep out of the denim. I have jeans that have been dry cleaned several times, and look very good, but it feels like the soul of the denim hasn't come out and I would have been better off just giving them a soak in the tub.

I've still been wearing them everyday and airing out at night with febreze...definitely time for a cold water short gentle cycle in the machine. I guess I'll skip the dry clean. I just got another pair of Japanese raws so I can rotate.
