^ that works too.

so does hot soaking them every once in a while with some woolite dark, and then airing them out to dry outside in the sun.

at least that's what i hear people who don't have rose/lavender scented ball sweat do.

that's gonna ruin ur denim pretty fast. just air it out on a windy day. don't expect the smell to just go away if there's like no wind...

Bag + Denim + Febreeze x Freezer / night in the Freezer = Fresher Jeans

Not permanent it just helps u get to the next wash.

just saw this... its a new machine that supposedly takes all the smell out of your jeans, and cleans them.

If you're jeans are raw, spray a shit load of febreeze and you should be fine. If it still smells, then you your going to have to take more frequent showers.

youre an idiot. if you want your jeans to not fall apart, its good to wash them. if your jeans are well made and well dyed, then it wont matter how much you wash em.

these were washed once a month, if not more, for one year



these were 8 times in one year



ive washed these at least 4 times in the 7 months ive owned them...






and they all look pretty fucking nice to me.... so, why is it that people shouldnt wash jeans?

i figured the whole not washing until way later was a bit overstated and somewhat overrated. most savvy people say wash when you need to, not after some arbitrary period of time so i think i'll follow that advice and wash them whenever they start getting bad. even though my jeans won't turn up results like those lol

How to keep your jeans from not smelling:

Dont sweat so much in them
dont go to all out parties in your favorite jeans or your raw denim in progress and barf and shit on them
dont blow smoke on them all the time
dont let them touch rain
dont be stupid
hang them from time to time
wash them?????????????????????????
Febreeze if you want
freezer but with a sealed bag, you dont want it smellig like the dead babies you keep in there

If you follow your rules, you just wear them around the house. We'll see your progress in 3 years bro.

People are still overthinking this shit, just wear them and when they smell or they're dirty, soak or wash 'em.

ive never washed/febreezed my AJDS, its been about 9 months and it doesnt smell at all. it might smell like whatever i did the night before, but by the next time i wear them, they dont smell anymore. the only thing i do is hang my jeans away from everything else
