to wash this jeans jeans but i don't know if it's a good idea and how to wash it.

I need your advice please.

Thanks.

If you feel the need to wash your jeans then wash them. 880R is a great wash with elastine in em so when you wash them they will actually return to normal. Cool wash, no drier. I've washed a few jeans, notably 880W and 888P and even though they have 3D treatments I've found they look the same when worn. I would say wash your jeans after a dozen or so wears. Well that's what I do anyway. Its totally up to you.

Ok,thanks for your answer, my question is not just about the 880R but all the jeans...

like i have thanaz 887K, this one i think could be dangerous to wash, that's why i don't know.

No jeans are dangerous to wash. I also have 887K and had to wash them. I figured I had nothing to lose as they had stretched a bit in the waist and I had a 2nd pair as back up. I washed them and they shrank back to their original size. I was delighted! It didn't effect the colour either which is what I was most concerned about. I know it's not a good idea to wash your jeans regularly but just think about how manky they'd be if you didn't. Imagine taking a swab of the seat of your jeans and getting it tested in a lab. The coliform cultures alone would make you sick.

You can just wash your jeans with no problem, they will look the same or even better icon_smile.gif

If you use a jeans very often, then wash them.

i only wash them when i genuinely feel that it's needed. typically i wear an outfit only for a couple hours while at dinner, going out, seeing friends etc. they dont get dirty that way. i feel no need to wash them 'just cause' but when they are actually dirty as in food spilled on them, mud on the back hem etc i dont hesitate to wash them. they are just jeans after all. funny thing is i fell in love with diesel when i saw a friend of mine wearing 8ym. that was like 3 years ago. i have since got that wash in larkee, unwashed. i saw him wearing his pair a few weeks ago, obviously washed and worn a whole lot. you can tell he prob doesnt have that many jeans lol, anyway they looked totally dif from mine and very cool! ya the dirt and paint had faded away, but they had also 'naturally' faded and with this particular wash they really looked great. cant really think of any of my pairs that have been 'ruined' by washing. i like the dirt and 3d effects though which is why i hold off on washing.

nice topic

i want to make a question: if i put the jeans (inside-out) in a bowl with cold water and let them for an hour and then allow them to dry in the clear air they will lose their naturally fade?

because some jeans of mine stretch out much and i want to bring back in the situation i bought them without losing their fade

When washing turn the jeans inside out it helps keep them from fading. And yes dryer
will shrink them. They will feel like new but don't forger to turn them inside out.

I don't think the color would fade if you don't put any detergent in the water. However, I think your jeans would have mildew smell after drying, and I doubt you'd want that.

I dont wash them at all, i know sounds gross. Honestly the only time I get to wear my jeans are on the weekends due to work. A lot of my diesels dont even get the wear they deserve. I really don't need that many pairs but I love to collect them.

i don't wash my favourite pairs too, cause i wear them rarely ( 1 or 2 times every 2-3 months). The other-older pairs washed inside-out every 10-15 times worn

post #16 of 32
I used to but rarely now since discovering this forum. Good excuse not to do laundry - they told me not to wash denim!

Same here

I wouldn't wash my jeans regularly and wear mine about as much as dieselolic and gpoop but after about a dozen wears the 3D is pretty much gone and they are pretty stretched so I figure "what the hell!" I've nothing to lose by washing them and in the few occasions I have washed them they actually shrink back to the original size.

I have far too many jeans too and not just Diesel. I also wear Levi's and Lee jeans so they don't get washed very often. Some of my Diesel's I have never washed however the 3D washes don't seem to lose the 3D effect that much when I wash them.

For those who don't want to wash them in the water, how about dry clean?
I never tried dry cleaner for my jeans. I would tell them not to iron them especially
3d jeans.
post #22 of 32

Since I'm a girl, I generally keep quiet about this as girls are supposed to be super clean kinda thing. I'm clean, but I rarely ever wash my jeans. I always find my jeans so beautiful when I first get them and I know they will be ok after one wash on cool and no drying, but I still rarely ever do it, unless I have got them dirty or they really do need to be washed after a long time. I think the only time to worry about washing is if they are coated and waxed as that can peel off or if they are rusty washed with dirt etc which could wash out like some of the old Diesels. Otherwise I think it's fine, just keep the water cool and don't dry them, let them hang dry. I think though in general as long as you are clean, you aren't really going to make the jeans dirty, only with a bit of sweat, but then that's your own bodies bacteria anyway so it's not harmful, would only cause odour after a while lol! icon_eek.gificon_mrgreen.gif

Anyone remember when Levi's recommended freezing jeans?? What a load of rubbish that was! Lol

 

I personally don't wash my jeans, but if you were going to make sure you at least turn them inside out...

Freezing doesn't kill bacteria that create odour. It only puts them to sleep.

freezing jeans?? What was that all about?? It sounds ridiculous.
Where should we freeze them ? Use a regular freezer and put them next to
stakes and frozen vegetables?
