This is sort of a spin off to the threads about washing your towels and sheets.
Anderson Cooper admitted that he only washes his jeans about 4 times a year, Stacy London from What Not To Wear came on his show and had a lab examine his jeans and say they are a “biohazard”. http://www.glamour.com/fashion/blogs/slaves-to-fashion/2012/12/omg-anderson-coopers-jeans-are.html
So, I want to know, how often do you wash your jeans?

I wash my jeans once a week or so, but I wear them about 3x before I toss them in the wash. Unless, of course, I drop something on them or they’re legitimately dirty. Definitely not biohazard material lol

I’ll wear a pair about three or four times before washing them. I usually wear jeans only on the weekends, and if after school it’ll be for only a few hours. So I wash them about once a week, or maybe every other week.

Four times a year?? I guess, assuming you’re wearing underwear, pants/jeans don’t really rub against any smelly parts of the body, but it still seems like they’d start to get a little funkified after 3 months! I probably wash mine every 3 wears or so. Not just because of dirt/funk issues but also because they start to lose their shape and drying helps tighten them back up.

Usually every 1 or 2 weeks. I wear them 3-4 times before I wash them though, unless they’re legitimately dirtied up. I wear jeans to work though since it’s a casual office environment, so if I didn’t do that, I’d probably be down to like once a month!

i dont’ wear jeans too often because I dress up to work and I come home from work and put comfy clothes on for the rest of the night. I rarely wear jeans, exept going out on weekends…so i said every few months…but if i wear them around my time of the month – then they go in the wash because that’s just disgusting. LOL

I don’t really wash them on a schedule, but rather after so many wears… probably about 4 or 5. If I spill something on them or get sweaty, I’ll wash them sooner.

Every one to two weeks usually, unless I actually spill, etc on them. I rotate through several pairs though, so it probably amounts to 4 to 5 days of wear.

Whenever I do laundry which is maybe once a month. But during that time I rotate between 5-7 pairs.

I wash them mostly because they stretch out after several wearings, not because they are filty. So, it ends up being after 3-4 wearings. Or, of course, I wash them if I get them dirty for some reason.

I only wash jeans if something falls on them or if they start to smell. I find no matter how thick or how expensive, my jeans start to fall apart after a few washes (maybe it’s my big thighs, lol). Shirts, undies, dresses get washed after every wear, but unless something is on them, I stretch out pants washes as long as possible. It ruins the shape, makes them wear out sooner, etc etc. If they smell, I wash them though!

I’m trying to wash them less. I’d say I aim to wear them at least 3-4 times before washing them. I do laundry every week so I am pretty tempted to just throw them in the wash each week but I’ve ruined so many pairs by doing that!
I just got rid of an old pair and I have two new pairs now that I am trying to take slightly better care of.

I will wear them 2-3 times, then wash them in warm water. I think it helps keep them longer.
Post # 15
When they get baggy or I spill something on them…so maybe every other week? If they fit, don’t smell, and have no stains, I’ll keep wearing them.

I’m with the majority here. Probably every 4 wears or so, unless I get something on them in the meantime.
