How often do you wash your jeans

#1

Got an oil stain after spilling some hummus on them earlier so this will be the last wear of these bad boys. However, I don’t have a regular system otherwise, very arbitrary. How do you make this decision?


#2

When I was a university student and often wore jeans, I did my washing every 2 weeks. I showered daily and didn’t piss myself so they stayed in good condition


#3

I wash them when I get a visible stain on them such as oil from hummus.


#4

This makes it sound as if now you’re not a uni student you don’t shower daily and piss yourself…?


#5

Knew someone who claimed to never wash their jeans because they were self washing or something.

Biggest load of bollocks I’ve heard to this day


#6

No I just meant there were university students that didn’t shower and did piss themselves and I wasn’t one of them. I just don’t wear jeans any more (and still shower frequently, stopped pissing myself when I was 3)
Edit - don’t know why I’m even talking about piss, could be because I had a pissed jeans song in my head when I saw the title


#7

When they are visibly dirty.


#8

This is supposed to be the case with the really expensive ones. Thirty quid jeans from Topman or wherever, probably not.


#9

After a couple of wears

Raw denim is sort of meant to be washed as infrequently as possible so it gets better with age and fades properly. Usually wash mine every 4-5 months, but I’ll scrub out any spills and air them if they need it.

Had a housemate once who used to put his in the freezer when they were in need of a wash - bit too far for me, that.


#11

current pair are a year old and have been washed once, wear them 5+ times a week


#12

Knew a Swedish guy who said “never wash your jeans or your hair, they’re both self-cleaning”.

Absolute toilet. Here’s me walking around with a head that doesn’t itch and jeans that don’t stink.

I wash my jeans every 2-3 weeks (when they start to smell a bit odd). I do wear them every day though. I used to have 3-4 pairs, but I am now poor.


#13

and I smell great thanks for asking


#14

Depends on weather and how long I’m wearing them for. Always like to wash them after getting caught in bad rain


#15

Not sure why I’ve done this.


#16

i usually wash them if they get any marks or dirt on them, or probably after up to about 10 wears if they don’t get visibly dirty.


#17

Every couple of months, but I only really wear them at weekends or on holidays.


#18

when they start to smell a bit funny


#19

Not even on jeansbook


#20

Don’t have any now because I ripped a hole in the crotch
