It's really bad for them. But what do you do when they start to smell? Mine don't smell, but they're pretty worn from the washes. The last wash put some holes in my knees. But hey, at least they're the naturally occurring holes instead of the stupid factory ripped ones. I only washed them that time because a dug cuddled up against me. I don't care for pets.

I'm receiving a new pair on Monday, which I might never wash.

I wash them all the time. Warm water, mild detergent and tumble dry.

I can wear the same pair for about a week. I wash them with all my other clothes, which I wash weekly. I have a few pair of jeans and I rotate them them every week and have had them for years.

Tracksuit bottoms, jeans are uncomfy as hell.

Especially when you're fat.

I'm not a fan of jeans.

Isn't the no wash thing only applicable to raw denim? Surely your regular, everyday jeans are designed with washing in mind.

I've heard of people putting them in the freezer to kill bacteria but I'm not convinced. No matter how careful you are not spilling stuff on them body oils and stuff are going to get on them and make them gross.

Drying on high is what does the real damage. Use low or ideally hang dry.

Huh? We always just washed our jeans and never had issues with it. I didn't know you weren't supposed to wash jeans.

There are denim "enthusiasts" out there that will buy raw denim and hold off on washing it for long periods of time. Raw denim is quite nice though I will admit.

Hell yeah I wash my jeans. Sometimes my job requires a little physicality. I get a little sweaty. I couldn't imagine wearing the same jeans and stewing in yesterdays ass and ball sweat. Now yesterday I was able to get through the day without any real work so today I am wearing the same jeans. I will not go a 3rd day though. 2 is my limit and only if the 1st day was lazy.

I wash them when they get dirty and smell.
