Quick question.

For instance, in Vancouver it's pretty cold and wet here already. If I were to hot soak my jeans, where should I hang dry them? I know that you're suppose to hang them outside usually..will the laundry room be okay?

just make sure u either get all the excess water out or else it'll leave a nice blue puddle for u and its pretty hard to try to rub out

^^Indeed, or put something like a bucket or at least some newspapers on the floor if they're really soaked. blushing

I've always wanted to ask that question. it can get pretty fucking chilly in minnesota.

After soaking my jeans I usually just hang them over the shower rod and let them dry. Sometime I open the window and blow a fan on them. Works like a charm.

So I just got some evisu Ramen jeans model WS00, and was just wondering if and how I should soak them. I'm not sure if its Sanforized. If anybody knows anything about these jeans it would help

also when I soak I heard you should take a shower with them on? or just lay them in the tub? also I heard you should run around in the after? or should I hang dry first? plus its cold out so ya.

anyways heres the pics.




thanks.

I just got a pair of samurai 710's and I have never presoaked before, and I was wondering what the possible benefits of doing so would be.

Ramens are sanforized, soaking isn't needed and won't change anything. I recently soaked mine, but purely for cleaning purposes. Didn't shrink or anything.

^they get minimal stretch so down 1 at the most, but usually tts would work, I've seen inseam range from 32" and up

washing my apcs this weekend. should i just wash them with regular detergent?

sorry, i know this question has probably been asked many times before.
November 11, 2009 @ 22:28:28
Yea but make sure its non bleach, usually Woolite dark and dr. bronners organic soap are recommended.

I was at a house show last night and people were smoking like crazy all night so now I'm trying to figure out how to get the smell out of them because I am not even close to ready to wash/soak/dry clean them. I put them outside in the cold and light febreezed them but it didn't do the trick. Help?
November 22, 2009 @ 16:52:33
put it in the freezer in a sealed bag

levi's 501
Yo i'm sure it's been asked 46 times. but i just copped two fresh pair of raw levi's 501xx. i need them to shrink a little, but i don't want to lose a lot of the indigo. they have a bit of a "shine" about them too. i like my denim pretty stiff (nh) and would like to eventually create some sort of honeycomb effect. what would be the best soaking method to use in order to preserve the dye as well as that sheer they have? thanks

Is there any harm to the denim when ironing?

I have excessive honeycombs that go into my calf, and it looks pretty stupid. Would ironing them out be safe?

is there a term for "narrowing the leg opening?"

ex: like how "to hem" means to shorten the length

Anyone know if the Uniqlo raws are sanforized? They fit a little baggier than I would prefer so I was wondering if I should try a soak?
