Well, hey there again. It's your girl, PW, giving you the know-how on how-to for fashion, and on today's episode, we're going to talk about how do you remove the dye or odor smell from brand new dark or black denim jeans. So, let me start to show you. Now, you want to keep your jeans looking new for as long as possible and that's why people try to wear them a couple of times before they actually wash them. So, what you want to do is get the PW concoction. You want to get some really, a good brand of fabric softener and some water, mix it up. You want to put up to three quarters here and the rest water; shake her up. You just want to lightly spray, just to make it a little damp. You know, we want to spray all over our jeans; spray, spray, spray, whatever we have to do. And it's going to make them a little moist, but, once, once you sprayed, you already, "Hmmm", you smell that great, greatness coming out of it. Okay. And you just want to do that, you want to spray on your black jeans; you want to spray and we want to smooth. We don't want to leave it spotty; we want to smooth out 'cause you can really tell on black jeans. So, once you've sprayed it all down and did all the necessary things, you want to put it in the washing machine. And what you want to do is you do not want to dry this on a high heat. This is not a blanket. This is not a comforter. Okay? These are brand new jeans and let's treat them as such. We want to put them in the dryer on a low tumble or if you have a air fluff cycle, that would be really really good. Just for five minutes, no more than that; we don't want to shrink down the jeans. So, I hope I've taught you ladies and gentlemen how to get the odor and dye out of your brand new black or dark in a jeans. Signing off, it's girl PW on how-to.
