Seriously, I hate when my favorite pair of jeans starts to fade. It's so hard to find the same pair twice, so if you find a great pair, you really gotta take care of them. Believe it or not, it's really cheap and easy to get the color back in your favorite pair of blue jeans. Got ten bucks for dye and access to a washing machine? Great! Then you are all set.
As for your dye of choice, we're big fans of Dylon's "Jeans Blue." It's the perfect deep, rich shade. All you have to do is toss the dye and your worn out bottoms in the washing machine et voila! the jeans you love will be restored to their fabulous original state.
That said, if you have a trickier color or specific wash in mind, you might want to leave it to the professionals. For $50, Denim Revival will re-color your jeans to your exact specifications.
And once you have your denim back to the original hue, there are a couple things you can do to help keep the color. Experts recommend washing your jeans as little as possible, but this has a bit too much of an "ick" factor for us. Instead, turn your jeans inside out when you wash. Also, you want to dry clean when possible
