How Often Do You Wash Your Jeans?
There’s a special allowance when it comes to the amount of times you can wear jeans before they get thrown in the dirty pile. In my opinion, it’s based on the fact that post-laundering, you’ll need a few wears to get back that perfect worn-in feel before your denim becomes too loose. But interestingly, women and men have a very different habit when it comes to wash-and-wear. For the boys, each pair of jeans racks up 15 wears, but for girls, it’s almost half that, at just six. Given the recent obsession with skinny jeans for the ladies, it makes perfect sense — no one wants to go out in jeans with sagging knees. I’m guessing no dirty hipster boys were included in this survey though. And when it comes to purchasing jeans per year, men go through double the amount of denim, since they’re so anti-laundry. What about you? How often do you wear your jeans before you throw them in the wash? [P.S. Bonus to not washing jeans as often as most of your other clothes: They last longer!–Editor] [Daily Express]
