How long is it okay to wear a pair of jeans without washing them? I think a week is about right. It takes two days for them to loosen up after a washing so they are actually wearable and then can usually last about 5 more days until they are too dirty to pass off at work.
Usually that schedule works out pretty well. I only own two pairs of wear-out-in-public jeans so while one pair is washed I’ve got the other pair available to me. But what do you do when you can’t get to the laundry as soon as you’d like and you start to notice the residual odor of all those trapped farts?
That’s where these new Scratch-n-Sniff jeans come in handy. For just the price of 8 regular pairs of pants you too can own a pair of minty fresh blue jeans. They’re made from Japanese cotton and coated in a mint scent that will last up to 5 washes. I don’t think I’ll be running out and blowing $160 on them any time soon, but it is good to know they’re available.
