yeah, I know the quality is not the greatest.

initial soaks aren't necessary unless they are unsanforized.

if you just want to stop them from bleeding, tape the inside. they're still going to bleed even if you soak them.

good to know. I'm assuming even raw CMs are sanforized then?
September 02, 2008 @ 11:33:34
yea CM is sanforized, i cant imagine them being strink to fit on the super tight models..

I just got some levis red tab denim and I wanna know if a soak would stop the bleeding without messing up the pretty much perfect fit of them?

hi i was thinking to soak my jeans but im not to clear enough so if i soaked 'em is it affect the fading progress? or it makes even better?
September 03, 2008 @ 20:50:14
^i suggest you dont, you can but its better to wear out the jawns before you give it a soak/wash..wear it for as long as you can and as hard as you can until you cant take the smell or it looks so dirty that it def needs a wash.
September 04, 2008 @ 19:55:35
why shouldn't you machine dry your jeans?
September 04, 2008 @ 21:46:37
well first things first, you wanna wear out your jeans for as much as you can before washing them, bcuz this gives a better contrast after the washing process..your allowed to machine wash your denim,you just dont want to wash it early on in the process, also when machine washing make sure you wash it properly under the proper settings like inside-out and under the proper temperature so it does not come out looking horrible, hopefully this helps rise..
September 05, 2008 @ 01:43:37
i appreciate it, but it doesn't because i asked how come you can't machine dry it lol blushing
this i mean after let's say a soak. opposed to waiting another night for it to hang dry, how come i cannot machine dry it?
thanks.

So... what do i do if my jeans do stink. I thought of using febreze but I am a total denim noob and i'm prone to ruining my shit.
September 05, 2008 @ 15:52:09
^wash them.

anybody know how much a pair of imperial dukes will shrink with an warm soak...
September 06, 2008 @ 16:17:18
I unknowingly sat on something sticky while I was in a resteraunt with my family. This residue also got on my tee. It smells like barbeque sauce and its stickyish.

Is there a way to clean it w/o fading/causing defects?? Or should I just wait till I soak my APC's in the later months?

hot machine wash / hot machine dry, if it stretches again, buy a new pair of jawns

hot soak will bring them back to size but they're going to stretch again.
why wouldn't they stretch back out?

thanks for the really quick response what about drying? theres no sun out no more so if im gonna have to air dry ill have to wait till tomorrow
September 11, 2008 @ 21:07:14
hang dry it, if the pair is raw and you want to keep its stiffness then hang dry it,but if you dont care just toss it in the drying machine, itll be dark but not rigid
