I’m sick of using fancy denim detergent and hand washing my once raw LVCs.
Does washing denim with the ‘usual’ washing stuff harm the fabric in anyway?

There a best setting to machine wash them with?

just the gentlest wash in my opninon. I use one called 'sport light' which is just a 30 minute wash with a gentle spin

Turn inside out and stretch / shape them to dry naturally.

think the real problem is the spin…isn't that what causes those vertical streaks?
Having said that i've been throwing an old pair of visvim fluxus at everything while i've been doing some diy/gardening. throw them in the wash and then tumble dry, they look great for it (were looking a bit clarkson mid blue wash before, got much more variation now)

I've fucked a couple of pairs of Jeans in the machine (lines down the sides). I just wash by hand now.

If you turn inside out you shouldn’t get any lines. I have to wash my work jeans on 40 and highest spin to get them clean.

If you keep wearing them and keep washing them they’ll come out fine, really no need to hand wash denim

Anywhere decent open in East London which can take up a pair of jeans for me? They're white, so don't need chain stitching etc, but also don't want a random dry cleaner who will mess them up.
