I lol'd.

To bring a serious answer to your question, you can either toss them in a washing machine, or throw them in the tub like a regular soak, and put soap in there. From ISS: Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap was a recommendation.

get the hottest water out of your tub and fill it, soak for 30 mins completely submerged, hang dry. probably will only be temporary, im guessing there's stretch or sanforized tho.

starch
How do you starch jeans? What product do you use? Is it the powder starch stuff or liquid? DO you just get it at Grocery Store?
September 28, 2008 @ 20:38:29
just dont do it. get good creases in by yourself

jeans cant stay stiff forever
September 28, 2008 @ 21:06:35
ya
I got levi 501 stf which I know are hard to fade though^
September 28, 2008 @ 21:45:36
startching will cover the threads and make it harder to fade.

washing them will get rid of more indigo than soaking so a soak now after 3 washes probly wont do that much

alright so my jeans have stretched way too much, to the point where when i tighten my belt the waist gets all scrunched up together ...

whats the best way to wash em and get maximal shrinking? just take a hot shower with soap or some shit ?)

does putting jeans in the dryer affect them at all?
October 04, 2008 @ 21:51:37

hey guys, I have a question about some jeans. I have some A.P.C rescue denim. I've had then for about 4 months, I've worn them every day. I'm thinking about soaking them and I have a few questions.

First off should I even soak them
If so what exactly will happen to them.
How should I do it and for how long.
And is there anything I need to know before I do it?

i machine dried my FH the first time i soaked...cotton duck from sufu actually recommended i do this if i was trying to shrink them as much as possible...havent noticed any adverse affects on the jeans
October 12, 2008 @ 00:24:03
^the only problem with machine drying is the possibility of leather patches being warped. but if that doesn't bother you, then whatever whatever
October 12, 2008 @ 01:40:45
^^i warm washed and machine dried my samurais and the patch didn't get warped... i think the temp of the water may matter more.. like when people do boiling water soaks and shit
