True Religion is an American-made designer jean brand sold at authorized retailers across the United States. The True Religion brand has its own authentic design that includes different stitching variations and widths. All True Religion jeans have a horseshoe stitching on the back pockets; some also have a flap on both back pockets. Several methods exist that can help remove a stain from your designer jeans; the most important thing is to care for the stain as soon as you see it.

Blot any excess liquid from the jeans with paper towels or a white cloth.

Remove any solid residue from the stained area by gently scraping it off with your nails or with a dull knife. Solid stains such a mud may be easier to scrape off once the solid particles dry up.

Dampen a white cloth or paper towel with cold water and blot the stain with the wet cloth. Once the stained area is wet, apply a small amount of detergent and gently rub it onto the affected area.

Blot the detergent from the stained region with a clean wet cloth until the detergent is gone. Let the wet area air dry, or wash the jeans in your washing machine. Wash True Religion jeans with cold water only.

Tips

  • Don't rub the stain on your True Religion jeans with a dark-colored towel or a linty terry towel; either may affect the stain. A white cloth enables you to see how much of the stain is coming off.

    Never rub a fresh stain with soap; soap helps set many types of stains.

    If your True Religion jeans have stubborn stains like grass or ink, apply dish soap, rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda mixed with water, or vinegar to the stained area before washing the jeans. However, these options may alter the color of your jeans, so test the solution on an inconspicuous area to see how you jeans react before you apply any of these substances to the stain.

    Never use hot water on stains of an unknown origin. A lot of stains, including those originating from egg, milk or blood, will set in with hot water.
