is it a bad thing to soak your jeans often? how does it affect it if any? been wearing my jims but it got kinda loose for my liking, especially around the but area so was thinking to soak them again to shrink them
it's not a bad thing, it's just water. the only thing you have to worry about is that water removes the starch and abraded indigo. other than that, nothing else. you'll just loose the sheen if its sanforized and probably loose a little indigo, nothing drastic.
i also asked this question at a forum on mynudies.com and this is the answer i got:
I will give you a simple answer; yes. My friend has a 2 year old pair of jeans he hasnt washed but he has soaked once every month - IT still looks lke he washed them and the fading contrast isnt as deep. If you want intense contrast fades, avoid H20 as much as possible.
Well if you soak em and they will shrink..they will stretch back out ;)
so i'm getting totally 2 different answers, any help?
