  • READ LABEL FOR CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS for your 501® Levi® original and tall & big original fit jeans for men.  It works for women too.  Levi Strauss has some newer labels for the cleaning instructions.
  • The number one recommendations are to never wash your jeans or else wash then every 6 months.
  • If for example, you work outside in yard work, then probably you will need to wash your jeans.  I say to have an old pair to do this kind of work and have other pairs for a relaxing time or social time.  Ya don’t want to date with the jeans ya do in the yard.
  • Use common sense.  If you get frustrated or whatever, contact me by email or use the comment box.   Various methods are added to the posts concerning the care of your jeans.  I would be interested in how you clean your jeans.



To wash your jeans, turn jeans inside out.  ( Wash only dark jeans with other dark jeans, but use a light load.

This is not the case with lighter colors because dark colors will more than likely fade on other light-colored jeans.

Well here is my advice using other websites and experience using common sense.

Use detergent made specifically for washing jeans or a color protection detergent.   

If you like Woolite, make sure it says on the bottle “dark”  There are others you may like that is just as good as the dark Woolite.  Any laundry soap you use, be careful and read the label.

You do not need a lot of laundry soap.  It all depends on how dirty your jeans are, and the more you use, the longer the rinse cycle.  Nothing worse than to take out your jeans and see all that wet soap on them.  Load the soap in your washing machine, then add your clothes.  Now, ladies, I am not speaking about you if you are the one who cleans them all the time.  

This is advice that is useful for sheets, for example, if you wash them often.  I use less than what the label says because I clean them often and they are not that dirty. 


  •  Select the coldest gentle cycle to wash.  Many times the directions say to wash in warm water! 
  • Wash on gentle cycle for a couple of minutes.  May move the jeans with your hands also.  Then rinse and spin to wring out excess water.  Use common sense.   If you have the gentle cycle on your washing machine, so much the better.  

My advice is to not even wash your jeans unless they are dirty.   Again use common sense.   Jeans can stay clean, but they may smell.  Then that is a reason to clean your jeans.

 But like I said, if they are very dirty, then I would probably wash the jeans in a short warm cycle.

  •     Hang jeans on a line in your home.        If you do not have a dryer or the dryer you have does not have a delicate cycle.  It is better to hang the jeans near a window until dry.
  •    If the outside is cool, hang your jeans on a clothesline.         Or if warm outside, do not leave your jeans too long.  Allow them to drip- dry for 1 or 2 hours.  Put the damp jeans then, on the line in your home.
  •    REMEMBER–       Wait for the sun to go down  (one or two hours before sunset) to hang jeans on a clothesline under a tree or in a cool shade.jeans getting dry on a clothes lineIf this is not possible, then hang jeans on a clothesline in the shaded area in your home until the jeans are completely dry.
  •   Fold jeans and put them on a shelf or drawer with enough space to accommodate them.

That’s all folks.  I just want to make one point.  If you do want to put your jeans in the dryer, you can take them out at any point, but do not completely dry them, because they will wrinkle and possible shrink just a little.  Just use common sense.
