Ever walk behind a complete stranger with holes in their jeans and see their underwear? You don't even know their name but you know they're wearing penguin boxers. It's terrible. I can't stand it when people walk around with holes in their jeans! It's gross. Fix it. No one wants to see your undergarments through your ratty jeans, am I right? Maybe I'm old fashioned to think it's inappropriate to have undergarments showing.
My dad used to throw away my jeans without telling me if they had holes in them. He'd say I, "looked like a bum." My dad's a funny guy. I even fix his jeans that he's had for years that have holes in them. This is an easy fix that takes about 5 minutes! All you need is an iron, an ironing board, and With about 5 minutes and an iron you can repair worn jeans so they are able to wear again!
Iron. Press hard. I iron it for about a minute. Let it cool before checking if it's adhered to the fabric well enough.
The inside will look like this when you are done.
Trim loose threads.
The end result: your old ratty jeans look a million times better! No one will see your unmentionables now! If the patch comes off a little bit in the wash, simply iron them again. The patch will continue to stay for countless washes.
