Give jeans some TLC in the wash.
Kids can be rough on jeans but you don't need to be tough on them in the laundry. Wash jeans the right way so they'll last longer: turn them inside out, in cold water, select the DELICATE CYCLE and add 1/4 vinegar to the rinse cycle. Choose the low to medium spin cycle and hang to dry. Heat from the dryer can wear out cotton fibers prematurely.
