    Default How often do you wash your jeans?

    I just saw an article suggesting you should 'never' wash your jeans in order to retain their shape. Not sure I like that idea!

    I tend to wash my jeans after every wear. I'll occasionally wear them a 2nd time only if I have had a 'home day' or not gone anywhere where they might get germy/dirty.

    DH wears his a few times before he washes them. A mate of his goes months without washing his, he just airs them out on the clothesline.

    What's your jeans policy?

    I wear jeans most days and wash them every few weeks or so- either if they start to smell a bit or I've spilt something on them.

    I wear mine 1-2 times before washing them. With a 1 year old, that's as long as they last before getting food or snot rubbed on them!

    Only when they're dirty I only wear them for a few hours at a time when we go to the movies or out to dinner and it takes ages to get them back to perfection of comfort once they've been washed.

    Only when they look and/or smell dirty. Usually at least 4-5 wears, or more depending on how long I have them on. I don't usually spend all day in jeans though

    Every time i wear them! Or if i only wore them a couple hours then I might wear them the next day. I don't understand why some people leave them so long between washes. Weeks to months between washes? They are no different to normal pants IMO.
