How to speed up the drying of jeans?

In life, anything can happen. For example, you were invited to a youth party. The most suitable and comfortable there is to appear in jeans. But here’s a shame – you washed them half an hour ago, without assuming anything that an invitation would arrive. Of course, you can take something else from clothes in your wardrobe. But this will be perceived inadequately – as a kind of challenge from the “white crow”. Piotr Marcinski, Shutterstock.com Of course, you can ignore the party altogether. And again this will not understand. It remains then only to accelerate the drying of jeans. In principle, they can be pulled over and wet, if it is summer outside. And at other times of the year, how? It is easier to catch a cold than to be treated. What are some ways to dry jeans without a clothesline? We take a powerful iron.

We turn the jeans inside out, cover with gauze and begin to drive on it with a hot iron. Water will begin to evaporate first into gauze, and then from it. It is very important to speed up the drying to have two or three gauze sheets. Periodically we change them if the iron is not powerful enough. Normally, water should evaporate simultaneously from jeans and gauze. Pay special attention to ironing seams.

If they remain wet, the moisture will “crawl out” again on the fabric. Stroking the seams is repeated, returning the jeans to their original look – turning them out with a “face”. This way to completely dry the jeans can not be – you just remove the iron excess moisture. For a relatively complete drying jeans are placed in the oven. Be sure to first carefully wipe it inside. If this is not done, the dried tissue perceives food odors. We set in the oven the highest temperature. Occasionally we open and close it to let out the steam that has appeared. And do not forget to change the position of jeans in the oven, expanding and folding them in different ways. The process of drying can take half an hour. Those who have a hair dryer can speed up the drying of jeans with it. We turn the wet jeans belt down and put them in that position on the back of the chair.

Holding the legs stretched upwards, we alternately direct the stream of hot air into them. Drying time depends on the power of the dryer. It is important to dry uniformly over the entire area. Do not try to blow-dry your jeans perfectly. In such a case, some temporary shrinkage of them may occur. Especially in the belt. The point here is that a hot stream of air from a hair dryer changes the properties of fabrics. In the belt, two or three types of fabric are usually sewn together. And if you accidentally overdry the belt, then to tighten it will need to “squeeze” the stomach. Not everyone is suitable. By the way, washing the machine by hand and manually will require different time spent on drying jeans. The automatic washing machine squeezes the dense fabric quite well. To wring out the jeans by hand is not an easy task. Especially for girls.

This, too, must be considered. After hand washing, the same effect as in a washing machine on a strong spin can be obtained only by squeezing the jeans together. Some try to speed up the drying of jeans, laying them on the radiator. This method can also be used. But provided that the battery is not too hot. Otherwise, the jeans will get “bubbles” due to uneven drying. This will be especially noticeable on your lap. Jeans – clothes for all occasions. They can appear not only at the get-together, but also in the office, if the authorities are favorable to them. If possible, wash your jeans less often. The peculiarity here is that they can shed under the influence of “chemistry”. And besides this, do not forget that the accelerated drying enhances the effect of “baldness” of the fabric. Use the methods described above only in emergency cases, when ordinary drying is canceled for some reason.
