During the summer, khakis get a little drier if you line-dry them outside. If you can’t line-dry your khakis outdoors, you can use a clothesline. Otherwise, you can put them in the dryer, but only at a low temperature.
To avoid wrinkles, dry khakis on a low setting. The drying time will depend on the type of dryer that you have. It’s a good idea to check your pants every 15 to 20 minutes to see how dry they are. If they still feel a little wet, take them out and lay them flat. You can also hang them outside to finish drying.
You can also wash khakis by turning them inside out. This will help keep the outer fabric as intact as possible. Moreover, you can wash your khakis with other similar-colored clothing. However, be careful not to wash dark clothes in them, because they might rub off on them.
Another option is to hand-dry your khakis. Although this method takes a little more time, you can dry your pants quickly. If you do this, make sure to use cold water and detergent. You should also separate light and dark clothes. You should also set your dryer on the coolest setting.
