Add 1/2 cup Morton salt to detergent in the washing machine and wash as usual.

Many people dry their jeans in strong sunlight after washing which makes it more tough. Always dry it in shade it will not only make it soft but its color will also be bright.

Cool! I have such a difficult time finding jeans that fit me, but the next time I find a pair, I'll definitely be trying this recipe on them!

Excellent point Re: proper drying techniques along with preserving the colour, Thelma! Inside-out, is another trick to helping preserve colours when line-drying.
