How long do you go between washes for your jeans? There have been many conversations about how often you should wash them, if putting them in the freezer is a good idea, etc.
Everyone has their own take. Here are a few expert opinions:
- Levi’s design director Paul O’Neill shared that he washes them every “30 to 50 wears.” He recommends washing jeans alone on a gentle cycle with cold water so the color doesn’t fade, and hanging them outside to dry. DO NOT TUMBLE DRY THEM. He also noted that how often you wash your jeans is a personal preference and there isn't an official right way to do it.
- Mary Lou Ryan, a co-founder of clothing brand, says she only washes her jeans when it’s vital with a small amount of mild detergent. She also says she washes them inside out & on gentle cycle to protect the fibers if they have a stain.
- Stylist Jane Herman, says only you can decide how often to wash them. She says she washes hers, quote, “not every time I wear them, but I have small children, so food stains and playground mess are always reasons to wash.” She washes her jeans with "cold water, a small amount of mild detergent and “air dry all the way."
