Jeans! How To Make Them Last Longer?

blue jeans and a tshirt

It’s certain – jeans are the most widely worn piece of clothing nowadays. Definitely you’ll have a favourite pair of blue (or other colour) jeans. You love them so much that you want to wear them forever. But do you know how to care for them?

Don’t wash them (often).

Jeans don’t like washing, in fact any piece of clothing would worn out faster when washed more frequently. Try to wash your jeans as little as possible.

When you do wash your jeans, do that by hand or in the washing machine at “hand wash” program. The temperature must be lukewarm, the detergent – mild. When you place your jeans in the washing machine turn them inside out.

Dry cleaning your jeans is a bad idea. It’s far better to wash them with water and mild soap than to expose them to all chemicals of a dry cleaning. If you have a stain at your jeans, try to remove it carefully – first by brushing the residual if it’s food, mud etc. and then cleaning the very spot rather than the whole piece of clothing.

Air dry your jeans – better inside than in bright sunshine. Drying them in a machine won’t do them a favour. At first your jeans might be a little hard but in a few hours after you’ve worn them they will get to their usual mild state.

So, handle your jeans with care and wear them with joy!

Amethyst

Amethyst is a type of quartz with purple colour. It is a semi-precious stone and is used in jewellery with gold, platinum, silver to create jewels of all type and price range.

Amethyst has been known since centuries, actually the Greek believed it prevented intoxication and decorated their drinking cups with amethysts. Its name comes from the ancient Greek word of “not intoxicated.”
The best reserves of amethysts are in Siberia, Sri Lanka and Brazil. Ideally, it is with a purple hue of about 80%, mixed with blue of up to 20% and red. Synthetic amethyst is also produced from a clear quartz, which gets coloured to purple via several technologies like gamma rays, X-rays or electron beam irradiation.

Amethyst is the birthstone of February. It is believed to develop intuition and intellect. It brings prosperity to those, who deal with business. They say it shields from bad karma and affects positively the nervous system – amethyst brings calmness and security. Do you need more reasons to get an amethyst jewel?
