    I spilled beer on my APC new standards last night; was too drunk to worry about it, and now it smells like stale beer.. it's not TOO bad though, just a slight hint. Is there anyway I can get the smell out without having to wash them?

    why cant you wash them? is it like the movie Speed in which you can't put these jeans in a wash cycle less than 50rpms or they'll explode?

    Yeah, sometimes people take this whole never-wash-denim thing too far. Having said that, febreze+freezer should do the trick if you're really adamant about it...

    light agitation

    +

    hang dry.

    very true. Whenever my jeans get dirty or are smelly, I give them a nice soak, usually with hot water and some woolite dark.

    The indigo loss is minimal and they come out very clean. Or at the very least smelling fresh.

    hang ur jeans in your bathroom and take a bath... the steam might help.

    but everyone is right, unless your jeans is of a very questionable origin, washing it once won't hurt.

    Depends on the vodka I wouldn't use Georgi to sterilize a wound. Worthless alcohol
