WASHING Jeans w/ VINEGAR question... - Page 2

post #26 of 34
HAhaha....Great advice not_a_virus... make sure not to use expired ketchup...lol. classic... about replacing the wardrobe with a month of ketchup, i have a friend who puts ketchup on everything (steaks, ham sandwich, pork, chicken, potatoes, hell anything that is between 2 slices of bread, etc, etc.), and his jeans aren't designer by any means, so you may be better off buying him new jeans.

Ok, so no vinegar for my jeans... fine with me. I thought it sounded a little fishy, but some people really do seem to claim it works for them. I guess I'll probably just air on the side of caution and use laundry detergent.

PS - did anyone else notice how protective the people from Alabama were? Gotta love that Southern hospitality!

if you really want to preserve your jeans, hand wash with dr bronners(you can find it at any healthfood store), roll them up in a towel to get any excess water out, and then hang dry outside. fading will be minimal.

Southern hospitality is a dying art and one that is quite unappreciated these days! No offense, I just pictured you as college kid (guy) who had no idea how to do laundry. That would be no stretch, I have a son, and he is spoiled rotten. He will likely not know how to do laundry when he goes to college. The thought of a pair or $250 jeans going through the washer with vinegar, ketchup and bleach made my skin crawl. I hope my comments weren't taken as rude or condesending, its just the mom in me. Good luck with your jeans!

Haha, no, I definitely did not take any of your comments as rude, I actually thought you were really nice for sticking up for me! Thanks I was serious about the southern hospitality, I like it!

on the other hand, google also turned up a lot of pages saying otherwise. obviously one or the other is wrong.

i know you people hate the place, but if you search superfuture youll find alot on this. experts have concluded that its a myth.

what I have read says a cup of white vinegar for the washload. Don't know if it works or not. I have also heard salt, but I would imagine that would abrade the jeans...
