I'm about 4.5 months into some APC NS. I started them in the summer, so near the end of August they needed one night in the freezer for smell (sweat, etc). Saturday night I spilled a drink all over them (oy...) and they smelled horrible. So I gave them a 50 minute hot soak today with a little Woolite Dark. I really wasn't looking to soak them for a while longer, which is why I only left them for 50 minutes and didn't scrub or agitate anything.
So, on the bright side, my denim is cleaner and I barely lost any color. But, they still smell a little bit. I'm thinking as soon as they're totally try I'll just put them in the freezer again... but any recommendations? I don't need the 'just wash your jeans' comments; that method is all well and good but I'd rather not (trying to save the dark indigo color, etc).

Try a cold soak with woolite dark over night.

I really just wash my jeans, but with the way you want to care for your denim, this sounds like a logical idea.

And that won't leave weird-ass marks on the denim when it dries? My boy sprayed his pants down once and was left with all these white marks. Good looks on the prompt responses, thanks alot.

Make Em Cold
If you just did a soak today I would definately throw them in the freezer tonight and then test out that antimicrobial if that doesn't work. I wore a pair of APC's every day for a Boston summer and the freezer never failed me.

nah it wont... I had beer drenched all over my jeans the past weekend, and was too drunk to notice at the moment. The next morning, the odor of the jeans was just too much, flipped them bitches inside out and sprayed a good amount of Fabreeze and bamn odor gone.

I never knew about the freezer trick, I'll need to try that out. Airing them out works wonders though..
