Don't Let Your New Jeans πŸ‘– Fade.... These Are The Right Things To Do While Washing

    Finding comfortable, high quality jeans can be a lot more challenging than it should be. So when you find that fabulous pair you love so much, you'll want to do anything you can to care for them property.
   News Room spoke with a cleaning expert who told us how we're washing our denim wrong and how we should be caring for them to ensure that they stay clean and vibrant through years of wear.
You are wearing them right after cutting the tags off:  Getting a fresh new pair of jeans is exciting and we can't blame you for wanting to wear them immediately after bringing them home. However, Silas Akpan, who is a cleaning expert told News Room that this is the worst mistake people make with Denim in general. "Not washing a brand new Denim separately the first few times you wash it" is a No-No-No, according to Silas. He said that new Denim can bleed alot of dye into the wash water the first few times it is washed which can cause dye to transfer to the other items in the wash.
  Washing a new Denim item alone helps five you an idea of just how much of a problem with color loss there is and how soon you can safely sort the Denim items into a load with like colors".

   You're not washing them after the first wear: You should definitely be washing them before the first wear, but you should also wash them after your first wear, too, because there is still a risk for dye transfer Silas told News Room.

   Not washing new Denim before you wear them risks color rubbing off the Denim into something else you are wearing that touches the Denim, and even the upholstery in your car... these can be made worse if the fabric gets wet while you are wearing it.
You are not washing them separately from other clothes in those first few washes. Few of us are likely to separate our denim from other garments. But in those early days, this is a mistake.

   Your washing them after each wear: Washing Denim too frequently will cause color fade and much of that is based on personal preference. As Silas told News room, "washing denim garments each time you wear them will help get a nice, soft fade sooner or later, especially if you have a favorite pair you wear frequently. Tumble drying will help with fading too".

 He recommended " Letting your white Denim be your guide - white Denim jeans/capris keep no secrets the way indigo Denims does. Depending on one's wearing habits and environment, they they may be too dirty to wear again after just wearing them once. Or maybe they can make it for a few more wears before washing. It really varies depending on individual habits of each person.

You Never Wash Your Jeans: as Denim is typically sturdy and forgiving of common stains, some people admittedly never wash their jeans πŸ‘–. This is fine but you may experience color loss as the jean gets soiled by normal wear and tear. "For the people who never wash their Denim, their goal is to maintain as much as the original color as possible, yet also achieve unique fading effects.  When dirt is allowed to remain on the surface of fabric without being washed away, it causes fading. That's because the soils break down and as they do, they can cause color loss" he said.

You are not treating stains the right way: The best cause of action to tackling a stain is to pre-treat and wash as quickly as possible ideally , before the stain sets. "Different stains benefit from different pre-treatment methods" said Silas. Some stains benefit from first rinsing with cool water like blood whilst others do not like greasy food stains. Stains can be harder to get out when washing in cool water, so pre-treating is always a good idea.

You are not using the right detergent products when laundering: Although Denim may be sturdier than other garments, you'll still want to proceed with caution when it comes to product use. Silas told News room that, "Since Denim is typically recommends cold wash temperatures to help maintain the color, washing with detergent alone is a big mistake. Getting your Denim as clean as possible actually helps maintain the Color because soil that isn't washed away breaks down on the fabric and actually causes color loss".
    Be sure to use a color safe bleach if you prefer to add bleach to your detergent as well.

Manchester City Fan Claims Man United Can Win Premier League Ahead of City And Liverpool

Manchester City are 14 points clear of Man Utd in the Premier League table but one Blues fan believes their rivals could yet win the league ahead of them and Liverpool.
Manchester United could still win the Premier League this season, according to a Manchester City fan who claims they can cause a 'tipping point' for both City and fellow title rivals Liverpool.
United have won nine out of 10 games since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came in to replace Jose Mourinho in December, with United now just two points off fourth spot having been 11 behind when the managerial switch was made. City and Liverpool must both visit Old Trafford during their run-ins as they compete for the title and that could prove crucial in the final reckoning. And a City fan by the name of 'Andrew' told The Sports Bar on talkSPORT that he believes United's run of form has seen them become title contenders.

    "There's a load of games to play and I actually think Manchester United might be th…

The Stomach-Turning History Of Rat Torture – Perhaps History’s Worst Way To Die

Humans have a long history of developing inventive ways to hurt each other. There’s seemingly no end to the horrifying torture devices that people have conceived. But one of the most terrifying methods of torture ever created doesn’t require a man-made device at all. Instead, it just requires a rat.
     There are a lot of bad ways to go, but rat torture may be the worst.
     Many people naturally feel a sense of fear and revulsion towards rats. And the animals will chew through nearly anything, including human flesh. And that makes them perfect tools for torture. Especially if the torturer knew how to use them.
     One of the most fiendish forms of rat torture involves placing a rat inside a half-cage and atop a restrained person’s abdomen. Then, the cage is slowly heated. Desperate to escape the heat, the rat begins to burrow through the only soft surface it can find: the victim’s flesh. With sharp claws and teeth, the rat quickly gnaws its way into the victim’s bowels, causi…
