Twitter Is Fighting About How Often You Should Wash Your Jeans And It’s Feisty
So it turns out not everyone is on the same page when it comes to how often we ‘should’ wash our jeans…and the question is dividing Twitter.
Who knew that people had such vastly different ideas on the appropriate wear to wash ratio for jeans? There seems to be a split straight down the middle of humanity that divides the regular denim washers and those with a more lax approach to denim care.
The question has snowballed into a pretty damn divisive Twitter argument and I’m just gonna say, the clean-freak jeans washers are not playing nice in this anthropological discussion. There’s a lot of words like “gross”, “disgusting” and “crazy” being thrown around. It’s like infrequently washing pants is a some kind of a crime. Let’s all be nice about each other’s laundry practices…
Here is a roundup of people’s ideas on how often we “should” wash our jeans that can hopefully help you understand humanity just that little bit better.
So glad Twitter has tackled this big question.
Some ppl don't wash their jeans bc it is bad for the denim, some ppl don't wash their jeans bc they're lazy, I like to pretend I'm the first

Pray for us all
I just pulled a pair of jeans from my pile of dirty laundry and concluded that they had been sitting there unworn long enough that I could consider them clean. Pray for me.

We’ve got contradictory information hitting us from every angle
Too confused to do laundry.
The washing machine tears up jeans. I believe it was the owner of Levi Strauss said that you should only wash them a couple times a year.

I wash my Levis like twice a week…. never has issues with fading or wear and tear. After a couple years, yeah obviously. But at that point it's time for new jeans.

Alright Brianna, chill the fuck out.
I️ just read a twitter moment about how most people don’t wash their jeans…. DISGUSTING.

More people wash their jeans because of stretch than hygiene I reckon
I never know if I’ve actually lost weight or if my pants just fit looser becuase I’ve worn them for two weeks straight without a wash.

Not here to be judged thanks doggo
my dog keeps sniffing my jeans as if to say “do you realize these were in the dirty laundry?”

Peer pressure at its worst

Old mate Ben is onto something
I never wash my jeans, I just wear them until they're tattered & ruined & full of holes. Then I sell them to hipsters for £250 a pair

At the end of the day, denim wash care is just stressful
Owning jeans is all fun and games until it's time to do laundry ….
