Fashion Fix: Freeze Your Jeans, The Best Way to Clean Denim?

By  | 

Don't like the feeling of tight jeans out of the dryer? Hate your denim fading in the wash? Consider putting your Calvins in the freezer: We couldn't believe it when we heard this tip from a fashion publicist, but doing a quick Internet search revealed that this pro-tip isn't such a secret. Freezing your jeans won't remove stains, but it will kill bacteria (and smells!) without shrinking the fabric.

Here's what you'll need:
One pair of jeans (dirty)
A big plastic baggie.
A freezer
A dayone week to spare (depending who you ask)

What to do:
Fold jeans, insert into baggy. Make sure there is no leaky things in your freezer. Than just be chill like this guy.

Oh also, this works for shoes too. Who knew? There's been some debate about whether freezing jeans actually does anything except remove bacteria.
