Hang your jeans promptly after drying to avoid unwanted creases.

The Easy Way to Remove Wrinkles From Jeans

by Mimi Bullock

Even your favorite, most flattering pair of jeans can wrinkle if left on the floor or stuffed in a drawer. Wrinkled pants can be a problem when you need them to look neat in a hurry, without too much fuss. If you want to appear tidy without spending extra time rewashing those jeans, there are a few methods you can use. The easiest way to care for wrinkled jeans involves exposing them to a safe heat source. A heated appliance will give your jeans the smooth appearance you want.

Check the pockets of your jeans. Remove any items you find.

Turn the jeans inside out and place them in the dryer. Toss in a fabric softener sheet.

Choose the "tumble dry" setting and set the dryer for 10 to 15 minutes.

Remove the blue jeans as soon as they finish drying. Shake them to cool them. They are ready to wear.

Items you will need

  • Fabric softener sheet


  • You should add a small amount of fabric softener to the jeans when washing them. This will keep pants from wrinkling easily. (Ref.1)
  • Dry one pair of jeans at a time for faster drying.


  • Drying your blue jeans in a dryer may shrink them slightly -- use a low temperature whenever possible.
