So what's a good time for the first wash? I've had them since late July, and I wear them probably 4-5 times a week regularly to school or when going out. I figure 6 months is probably a safe bet, which would be around January.
Also, what's the best way to actually do a wash?
When the smell becomes unbearable, it's getting cooler now so you might be able to wear a bit longer with no smell. Cold / lukewarm soak is best, search this forum.
