Not washing jeans

I keep hearing that you're not supposed to wash jeans, but mine are starting to stink. What should I do?

Stop smelling them.

Wash them, don't use the dryer though, flatten them out and hang to dry, or lie flat to dry, turning to ensure even drying.

Wash them.

Who ever said you're not supposed to wash jeans? They have laundry instructions right on the label, Stinky.

I wash them, and I put them in the dryer. Simple as that.

Throw them out and get a new pair. Didn't they tell you they're disposable?

I have the same problem with my armpits. They really stink, but should I wash them?

wash them and air dry them

Wash them inside out. This will prevent a lot of fading and weathering.

Spray with fabreeze and toss in the dryer on low or no heat. Problem solved!

Thank God you didn't mention a clothesline.

Wash them, idiot.

Everyone is now saying that you're not supposed to wash jeans. Anyone who is still washing jeans hasn't gotten the memo about it. You ARE NOT supposed to do it.

The only reason anyone would say not to wash and dry -- especially dry -- your jeans is that he's afraid his waist will finally exceed his inseam on his 501s.

Apparently, if you stick them in a sealed plastic bag and put them in the freezer, it removes the smell.

Why the fuck would you be "not supposed" to wash them?

R15 is close. What you do is turn them inside out and put them in the freezer for a day. Take them out, wait till they're no longer cold, and presto! No smell. No fading. Perfect fit.

Bury them in the backyard

People wear clothes more than once?

Ewww...gross. They are clothing. Wash 'em, for crying out loud.

R23 This is coming from someone whose business is getting you to buy more jeans ...

If people are telling you that you're "not supposed to wash jeans", then they are trying to prank you.

Common sense, OP. I hope you have some.

Also, can someone here tell me how to get out of bed in the morning?

That is just so fucking stupid.

Fuck the smell what about the dirt?

That article has the smell of a guerrilla marketing campaign.....if your jeans stink really bad, then you'll toss them and buy another pair. That's a win for Levi's.
