Detailed Instruction: How to Dry Jeans Fast
Utilize A Hair Dryer
A hairdryer has been a stable household appliance and has become everyone’s reliable companion to dry and even style their hair. But another (not too unexpected) way to utilize it is for wet clothes.
Though jeans are a thick material that cannot be dried quickly, you can shorten the drying process with a hairdryer. However, it may take you several hours. If you are hurried, you can use bath towels in advance to shorten time.
First, use a terry towel to wrap your jeans, wring or put a heavy object on them. After that, replace this (now wet) towel with another new bath towel and repeat several times until it soaks up most of the moisture. Then, dry it with the hairdryer.
Now, let’s start with the hairdryer. First, turn it inside out to make sure some hidden places will also be taken care of. Then, hang the jeans at a suitable level.
Set the hairdryer at the maximum level and pay extra attention to the hidden places like seams, waist-belt, pockets, etc. as the fabric here is often thicker.
Remember to keep the distance of about 7-16 inch between your jeans and hairdryer to ensure the heat won’t ruin the jeans’ indigo. Move on to the jeans’ outer side after you are done with the wrong side.
Finally, let the air stream direct into the inside through the legs and warm them up for some minutes on each side. Et voilà! A pair of dry and warm jeans, especially ideal for putting on on a cold winter morning.
Dry Jeans with An Iron
Using iron is an effective way to dry jeans fast, might as well be faster than the blow-drying method. Not to mention, its functions help to increase if you hand the jeans by the radiator before.
After 10-15 minutes, the moisture decreases dramatically; change to the wrong side of the jeans and set the iron to the proper mode and temperature to dry.
Remember, don’t iron one spot for a consecutive time as the heat might damage the jeans’ indigo and elasticity (if any). You can use a piece of cloth to quickly evaporate moisture. Once you are done with the inside, continue with the outside.
An Oven Is Also A Great Option
Suppose the two previous ways are not quick enough to dry your jeans; you can use an oven as a last resort.
Hang the jeans on an open door and start the oven to an appropriate temperature. This way can help dry the jeans faster; however, here are some rules you should take into account.
- Remember to turn your jeans every 8 minutes;
- Constantly observe the oven in case of any possible fire incident;
- Before drying, you should make sure the oven is clean so that the jeans do not get dirty and absorb any unpleasant odor.
- Use an electric oven if you are busy and do not have enough time to constantly monitor the oven. It is much better to use an electric oven to dry jeans and only use a gas one in absolute urgent cases since the trouble this method might cause is much more serious than just damaging your pair of jeans.
Using the radiator to dry your jeans might be common, but it is actually not a great idea. It is not recommended to hang jeans right on the radiator, as the heat is extremely high, and the fire may start within a second.
It is better to hang the clothes on something else that is placed near the heater, such as a table. The heat will dry them quickly but don’t forget to frequently turn the other sides of the jeans so the heat can dry all the parts.
Discover The High-Spin Cycle
If you are washing your jeans and suddenly realize that you need them immediately, there’s one way you can do to shorten the drying time: use the high-spin cycle.
First, set the washing machine to a high spinning cycle mode to finish off, then it’ll spin your jeans at speed And squeeze plenty of excess water out of your clothes in several minutes.
When the high-spin is completed, the jeans aren’t totally dry yet, but by squeezing excess water out, a high-spin cycle can help significantly shorten the drying process.
This method can also be used with other kinds of clothes, helping limit the time your clothes stretch under the hard sunlight until dry.
To sum up, above are some tips on how to dry jeans fast. We hope that you will find it useful to apply in your daily life.
Life is fast, and we are all busy but don’t forget to take care of yourself and wash your clothes regularly so you won’t be stuck in this unwanted situation again.
Thanks for your attention, and have a great day.
