Once a week at least.
Im a girl, so it's so annoying when i wear them for a day or two and they stretch and become looser so I gotta keep washing them all the time
I never throw them in the dryer though, it feels weird wearing them out of the dryer =/

If I washed my jeans once a week, holy crap they would not fit me..do they fade??

I try not washing my jeans more than once a month. I have a few in rotation so it works out.

If you have dark denim jeans and hate that they bleed soak them in a bucket of vinegar and water overnight. The acidity of the vinegar helps to set the dye. Wash and hang dry afterwards and you’ll notice less bleeding the next time you wear them.

^arr too much hassle >.< lol
once a month sounds reasonable

Do you wash jeans only with jeans or with your other dark coloured stuff?

I have many pairs of jeans and I keep rotating b/t them so I don't have to wash them often. Maybe once every 2 months. I don't sweat much or work in a dirty environment either so that helps. I also hang them on a coat rack so they get aired b/t wears. All my jeans look and feel brand new.

You guys better flip the jeans inside out and wash them with cold water.

Werd.

Also spot cleaning whenever possible also helps jeans last a lot longer.

Your jeans will fade ultra fast, and you'll wear your jeans out too quickly if you wash it every week. I'd say every 1.5 - 2months on an average pair of jeans. For raw denim, i'm sure many of you know about it already, atleast 6months or longer. *buy frebreeze, it works*

No matter what you do, if you wear dark denim it will bleed regardless. You can try cuffing your jeans(folding them inside out) when you wear your sneaks to reduce bleeding.

i wash mine once every 2-3 months since im rotating around 10 pairs and only get to used them mostly on the weekend, i get atleast 3-5 wears each. i always hang them on a hook after wearing to air em out. i wash them inside out on cold water and delicate cycle and i only wash jeans with jeans. then i throw them in the dryer(delicate cycle again) for about 10-15mins but check it half way through and then i put them on a hanger to air dry.

I worked at Gap before, and learned from other Jean experts from other retail stores (Guess, Roots, Levis, Bootlegger, etc.)

Simply wash your jeans inside out under cold water.
The reason I wash them inside out is to prevent the outside being exposed to rubbing against other fabric while in the washing machine.
It also maintains the same material without no fade and no soften. Trust me, I remember washing my jeans right side up, and after about 10 washes, they felt so soft after. I like keeping my jeans the same condition as how they were purchased in the first place.

Next is using cold water. COLD WATER. rule of thumb. Warm water expands the material in the jean, stretching them and ruining the fabric.

Next is drying them. I hang dry. Simple. This prevents shrinkage and deterioration of the fabric.

Yup, The most simple way is the best way. It doesn't matter if your jeans cost 40 dollars or 800 dollars. Treat it the same way and you'll be rewarded

I put my jeans in the tub with cold water. Just a cold soak with a little Dark Woolite and then hang dry. I wash my jeans every 4-6 months.

I wash them inside out, cold water, hang dry. nothing special.

edit. I usually wash them every 2nd time I wear them. However if they smell after the first time then obviously I was them.

How on earth do you only wash your jeans once every 4 months? Maybe if you have 40 pairs of jeans I guess.

I only have maybe 10 pairs I wear regularly.

Imperial's are dope. Its hard to make them fade, you gotta wear it a lot. I wish I got the Duke's instead of the King's. They're too baggy.

just so you know that's really not going to help. You pretty much ruined your jeans. Next time you buy a new pair of jeans, if you DO have to wash them, wash them in cold water and hang dry them, when their fully dry, throw them in the dryer for like 10 minutes to soften them up.

Since your a girl, girl jeans all have elastin in them which makes them stretchy and more comfortable, everytime you wash them in hot water or dry them in the dryer, its making the elastin more and more loose which makes it harder for them to maintain their shape, which is why your jeans stretch out so quickly.


I barely wash my jeans, not because i'm dirty, but i dont really do much stuff in them, plus i have like 16 pairs in rotation, lols. But if i go clubbing or something, i have to wash them lol
