I bought brand new black jeans a couple of weeks ago, and popped them in the wash for the first time. I took them out of the wash and put them on the line, only to find when they were dry that they had a big white streak down the front of them. Does anyone know why this happened? Or have any suggestions to stop this from happening in the future? Thanks in advance.

  • get it refunded! denim can fade but shouldn’t streak like that


  • I would have taken them back to the store,that shouldn’t happen!


  • Wow extremely odd! Was it they way you dried it or was it straight after the wash? Maybe to much washing powder?


  • No idea, if you washed them like you normally would then the fault is with the manufacturer.


  • Take them back and ask for a exchange pair. Write a letter to the store and ask for a explanation. let them know how you washed them using what brand of washing powder and if you washed them on their own first. All important to the store owner.


  • sounds like a manufacturing fault so I would be returning to them to the store


  • doesn’t sound right – I would have taken them back


  • I would think that they were faulty and return them.


  • I would definitely take them back for a refund.


  • Take them back for sure.


  • you should get a refund .


  • there are some good comments here


  • I doubt this should have happened and would also suggest taking them back to the store.


  • I’d take them back to the store for a refund.


  • Returning them is a great idea, if that fails try soaking them in Dylon Black dye for a day then pop on a cold rinse cycle. This should set it.
