I wear my jeans twice before I wash them. Unless i got a stain on them or I know they are dirty. But no i wouldnt say washing them after one use is too much.

I wash mine like once a month! haha..Washing them too much I feel like they fade and get worn down faster.

I wash mine probably once ever 3 or 4 wears. I also wash my jeans inside to prevent them from fading too fast.

I’ve actually read that it’s best to wear them more than once between washings, but I guess if he wants to wash them that often then… so be it?

ETA: 3 to 4 wears could be up to a month for me. I work in an office so I wear jeans on Fridays, then I’ll wear jeans on weekends but they won’t always be the same pair.

i probably wash mine once a month. I love dark wash and that’s all I own so i don’t want them to fade! Of course I was them if they’re obviously dirty but otherwise, i only do it once a month

I’m not even kidding when I say that I will go probably 10-15 wears before washing my jeans and so does my husband. They just don’t need it and I’ve said before that my idea of hell is spending eternity in a pair of just-washed jeans that you can NEVER BREAK BACK IN. Like, I really fucking hate it.

I probably wash them every 3-4 wears, too. If I wear them anymore in between I start to feel gross, but washing them every time you wear them is too much!

I wear my jeans for 3+ weeks (at least) before washing unless they are obviously dirty or I spill something on them or something.  And I never put them in the dryer.

Darling Husband washes his after 1 or 2 wears and thinks I’m crazy.

I wash mine every 2-3 wears, unless they get dirty. I like my jeans really tight-fitting and it bugs me when they stretch out after wearing them for a few days!

@Mrs. Fireworks:  This is another reason I HAVE to wash them, even if they aren’t “dirty”. They get all stretched out and then I feel frumpy.

I wash mine after every wear. It’s what my parents did growing up & I kept it up. The only time I don’t is when i’m on vacation- I’ll wear them twice.

I just saw an article about this – apparently if you aren’t in a dirty job, once a week is fine. But you’re supposed to wash them inside out. Maybe that’s common knowledge. I just thought my Darling Husband was weird for turning them inside out!

Darling Husband does this.  I just thank my lucky stars I have a clean man.

Darling Husband washes his after one wear but I go about 4-5 wears before washing.

I’m a clean freak, I think.  I wash mine every time I wear them, too.  I like dark wash so I wash them in Woolite for Darks on the gentle cycle.

I think most people would agree with you that it’s ok to wash them every few wears.  My Fiance thinks I’m funny to do this.
