    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...

    Bathtub

    +

    cold water (some soap maybe, but not necessary every time)

    +

    light agitation

    +

    hang dry.

    Done.

    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.
