1. Try febreeze or starch them. I dont like both, but it helps against bad smell and puts other smell on them.

2. Fresh air them over night. Or even longer, if needed.

3. Put them in the freezer over night. Kills some of the stinky bacteria.

4. Give them a soak.

5. If nothing helps, fucking wash them and stop stinking next time.

How long have you been going without a wash? Maybe you can already wash them safely. If the denim is not only broken in but really worn in, most of the creases/wrinkles form again in the exact same spots where they used to be before washing.

I dont think you need any help making your jeans smell. You can do that perfectly all by your lonesome

Dry clean those jawnz. APC recommends it on their "wash" sheet.

Options that I know of:

-proceed to smell like a homeless person
-do a cold gentle wash with woolite dark
-dry clean
-cold soak with dr bronners (i've only read about this)

If you dry clean you better explain that you don't want the jeans pressed at all!

just spray them with cologne...so you smell like a dirty foot in a clean shoe

Take a shower before you put them on everytime >_>.

Ah one more thing, putting anything in the freezer won't kill the bacteria, it'll just inactivate them. Once you take them out and let it go back to room temperature the bacteria will become active again... Heat will surely kill them though.

Hence try baking them in the oven and see what happens!!

most advise to soak inside out with cold water and hand wash then hang dry

Running through the ocean for like 30-60 mins is most ideal I think. Since the salt will kill all bacteria...
