post #1 of 19

What does everyone do when washing there jeans? How many times will you wear them before washing them? And if you dont wash them often or at all how do you keep odor away? Any help would be great as I'm new to this. Thanks

lol

You're new to washing your jeans ? :D

Personally I wear mine 3 times before I wash them. If they're raw I do it ultra rarely 

post #3 of 19

Me too, I wear them usually at least 3 times. But some jeans(my Thavar 820S) i wear them even more than 5 times before i wash them. I have a pair of Krayver 818D that I wash very often because it stretches out, so I kind of shrink it that way.

And also i reverse them(i wash them by turning the inside out) so the outside doesn't get damaged in the washing machine. 

In other words I've heard people putting their denim in plastic bags and they put it their freezer, because they are raw denim, so that they don't wash them that often. That also(that's what they say) keeps the odours away.

Ambi Pur actually has a spray for fabric and air and it actually smells pretty good. It doesn't damage the clothes and costs not more than 3,50 euro/$5.

Just wash them properly. It will not destroy them.

This! If you have jeans that have pre stacking DO NOT WASH THEM! I ruined my thavar 8X2 that way. Just spray them with febreze and hang them to air out.

 

If you have jeans without pre stacking them once they start to smell fill your bathtub with cold water and use woolite. Let them soak for about an hour and hang to dry.

Pre stacking?
post #11 of 19

this is stacking - http://www.themodestman.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Stacking-1.jpg
(when the jeans are a bit long and they stack) 

 

pre-stacking means that it came from the factory already like that, it was meant to be worn stacked. (imo)

I just washed my only pair I own so far viker 88z and it does not appear that I ruined them. Great success
post #18 of 19

LOL : D

88z is indestructible, I've washed mine like thousands of times. Same is true for almost all the other washes. I think only the 3D washes require some extra care as they should be washed on 30 degrees. Otherwise it's perfectly fine washing your jeans. Don't worry. I think it's a good idea as straychev said to turn them inside out. I do it everytime before putting my jeans into the washing machine. Then I hang them outside by the bottom of the legs until they dry. I understand your worries. It's nasty to buy something expensive and then ruin it when trying to take care of it. But that's not gonna happen to jeans. At least it hasn't happened to me and I have a lot. I'm pretty sure the other guys around have the same impression. : )
