Starching Soft Jeans

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a favorite old pair of jeans that I've almost given up ever wearing because they'd become too soft over time (they're from the days when I used to wash jeans after every wear).
They're not the greatest brand (poor quality denim), but I love the fit and I've worn them to a nice color/distressing.

If I washed them in hot water (they've stretched over time), and gave them a good starching would they move closer to their original jean-like texture/feel?
Am I risking anything by starching them or washing them hot?
Can I achive my expected results?

I don't think washing hot gives you much shrinkage, if they've streched then just toss them in the dryer for half an hour. I don't see why you would hate softeness but if you really hate it then wash them and hang dry them outside for a day.

Starch kills fabric and ozone.

It's a different softness than a even a worn pair of levis.
More like a "I washed these cheap holister jeans so much they're about to fall apart" thing.

Thanks for the reply.
