Sooo....I just soaked my nudies - Page 3

Leaving aside the issue of incipient crotch rot, if you wear your jeans to bars at all, they can get pretty musty from absorbed cigarette smoke over time notwithstanding airing out.

Maybe this is because of different cultures. My girlfriend asks me to wash my trousers even jeans everyday:-(

You may wear the jeans, but she wears the pants.

Is there any way to lock gmku, morse and carikoba into this thread so that they can talk gibberish at each other until they fall asleep?

^^What about the gibberish you're talking dumbo? Way to advance the thread with your insightful commentary, nice.

 For the cat people: do your jeans ever present problems for friends/coworkers who are allergic to cat dander?

So they are finally completely dry now.

They have definitely shrunk back but I am thinking if I soaked them a little longer they would be 100% back to their original state. At least I dont have to cuff the shit out of them anymore. They also seem stiffer now then they were pre-soak which is odd because I figured the starch would have dissipated in the water.


And the whole smell issue. They didnt smell at all. I really dont go too nuts in my jeans just class, driving to work, and going out. If you have good hygene I dont think you have much to worry about.

Are there still bars that haven't banned smoking? I'm calling bullshit on this one.

Your girlfriend doesn't know what the hell she is doing. Jeans do not need to be washed after each wear. That's just rediculous.

Look at it this way, at any given moment in our lives (even now as you read this) your lungs are inhaling and your body is a host to more bacteria than could ever exist on your jeans after one wear.

It's a medical fact.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. "” Not since West Virginia pulled the plug on an old Appalachian mainstay "” the outdoor toilet "” has anything enhanced the general public health as dramatically as banning second-hand tobacco smoke in public buildings. "When outhouses were gone, we stopped the spread of some diseases immediately," the Morgantown resident and head of the Smoke Free Initiative of West Virginia said.

Goblin might be smoking in one of those illegal Appalachian moonshine bars.

I'm a lazy guy, but still afraid of the terrible smell if the jeans was not washed for months.

Then try splitting the difference with once every week or so of regular wear. Start small and ease yourself into realizing this practice might not be all that bad.
