Grommets are one of those necessary evils in this world that both women and men need to carry. You could try going out on a limb and buying the free jeans, but the grommets cost you the cool factor for wearing your jeans. To remove your grommets, you need to heat them with an oven drip pan, then use a vice grip pliers to twist them away.
Why do jeans have grommets?
Grommets help simplify the construction of jeans. Nearly all raw denim jeans, regardless of brand and jean size, all have grommets. A fabric grommet was originally created to hold one thin piece of lining inside another. Many companies have moved away from using grommets as an easy way of making clothes, but they’re still being used in the manufacturing of garments designed for those working in factories or warehouses.
How to remove grommets from jeans
Grommets (sometimes spelt as “grummet”) are those little circles of cloth that can be found near the pockets. Grommets are frequently used to make a protective flap, the top of which is stitched back into the jean’s seam in order to preserve the design on either side of it. If you have recently bought or are thinking of buying some new jeans and live on an Island, Canada or other similar country that separates itself by island or borders then you might find it necessary to remove a grommet from your jeans. Before going through with this please note that it will involve taking apart two seams near the pocket.
What does the dye used on jeans do?
Grommets help jeans “breath” by letting water seep out from the material. Grommets are usually elastic loops that go over the welt, which is the edge of fabric next to a seam. Grommet dye makes it look like a star exploded on your jeans and marks the area where you’ve worn through.
After care for dyed jeans
After dying, it may be tempting to jump in the shower to remove the dye from your jeans. And, yes, your clothes will feel fresher and cleaner. However, unless you want screen printing or resistance dye stains on the bottom of your jeans afterwards, the best thing to do is avoid using water while they are being dyed and after they are dry—a process may take up to several weeks.
