how to soften jeans?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
my friend bought a pair of sevens and they are super soft. how do i soften my jeans other than wearing them for months on end? fabric softener is only temporary, i thought of maybe finding out where i can get some kind of enzyme wash or something that can break down the fibers. or maybe sanding them down (but that would lose the color). anyone have any ideas?

wearing them really is the best way - sometimes i dont wash my jeans for fear that they will get stiff in the drying process (which, after they are broken in, lasts only a few hours). Seven jeans are softer than many of my diesels, but the fit is off...

i imagine you could toss them in a rock tumbler for a few hours...


I actually like wearing my jeans and breaking them in, it gives me a sense of satisfaction that American eagle's supersoft and super-low quality jeans cannot assure me

Use a more abrasive detergent (I usually use Woolite, but if I were to want to soften, Use TIDE), and some water softener (if you have hard water) - hardware store. And hand wash.
-Make sure not to use too much soap, or you will take hours rinsing, You will need much less because of the water softeners.
-You may want to grab a bottle of RIT to throe in the water to make sure the TIDE doesn't suck the color.

If that doesn't work-
Like BlackCandy said, Rock Tumbler
