Most of us launder and or dry jeans and dark-colored t-shirts in the same load. And that’s a disaster just waiting to happen. It’s the zippers.
When metal zippers are left unzipped to flop around in all that tumbling and agitation in the washer and dryer, those little zipper “teeth” are like chainsaws tearing up other items of clothing in the washer and dryer, creating little holes and tiny tears.
The solution is to always remember to zip up jeans and other garments that have metal zippers before laundering them. Francesca
