I save up my urine for about 4 months, then I pour it all into my washing machine. Drop the jeans in and wah-lah! Great acidic wash. If it smells just febreeze that shit after. Works every time.

These APC jeans look extremely 'dirty'. I like this look. What type of washing process/es do we presume these jeans went through? E.g. I would assume Woolite Black should be avoided in order to achieve this type of faded finish?

Who0oaa Those Jeans Are Smooth!


They are excellent. But I am wondering how this 'dirty' effect is created? Of course, people will post 'JuST Wear Ur JeanZ!1#~', but since this is a thread dedicated to the washing, I am wondering what type of washing this particular pair may have have received.

Use dirt instead of woolite.

those APCs just look like they were washed very infrequently, which led to the high contrasts fades.
the "dirty" look you mentioned is more likely due to the lighting rather than the actual jeans.

I've tried #4 ('seawater' wash). What's great about it is that you can use the rough texture of the sand to scrub your jeans for more cleaning smile.
