I washed them with a load of my other jeans. Letting jeans air dry keep darker washed jeans from fading faster. Be sure to hand wash or wash your newly dyed jeans with like colors the first few times after you had dyed them.

The dye bled from my jeans and onto other clothes the first time I washed the jeans. I suggest washing your newly dyed jeans with a stain catcher sheet like the one from Shout. It’s a real life saver! Thankfully, I caught it before I stuck the clothes into the dryer where the stains would have been permanent and much more difficult to wash out.

The great thing about the navy dye was that it kept the fading on the original jeans and kept the stitching the same color!
