    When you get to the point where one has to finally wash one's jeans, anyone have tips they can pass along to keep the darn things from getting creases in them?  Mine come out with these hella ugly creases all over the jeans.  I am doing something totally wrong?

    Thanks a lot.

    I hate that.

    What I do is stop the washer before it starts the spin cycle. Then take out the jeans and either let them drip dry, or you can slick them out flat, fold them in half (legs together) and arrange them flat against the side of the washer drum so that the centrifugal force holds them there during the spin cycle. I think what happens normally is that they get all twisted up and then the centrifugal force sets those lengthwise creases into the fabric.

    1- Are you washing them inside-out? 2- Be gentle on the spinning program. 3- don't let them rot in the washing machine overnight 4- hang them to dry 5- iron them... [​IMG] .luc

    5. Only if you are in severe need of a laxative, or have just had one of marc37's curative enemas.

    putting them inside out seems to fix it for me.
