actually, don't wash them for a while, the idea is to work out the ridges and shit as much as possible before a wash so they look more individual, but when you do wash them, yeah just put em in the washing machine

just don't put them in the dryer though, it will fuck them out.

Just iron them if they dry wrinkled. If you aren't into ironing, bring them in the bathroom while you take a hot shower and let the steam work the wrinkles out.

you put it in the freezer so the smell can go away. and dont wash your denim only if they are really dirty. wait like 6 months to a year to wash

hand wash in 6 months, and to decrease wrinkles, when u wash it, the last couple times of rinsing, dont squeeze the water out, fold it up like ur putting the jeans away, just continue folding it until it gets smaller and smaller, this way water comes out, but does not create as much wrinkles, when u think its ready hang dry. if theres still wrinkles, use that shower steam method.

The key to raw denim is to wear them in. You want to wear them long enough so that individual marks such as honeycombs and whiskers are prominently shaped and molded into your raw jeans. Typically, this process takes at least 6 months. During the 6 months process, there are ways to keep your jeans clean, such as mixing a spray bottle with some vodka and water. Spraying this on kills bacteria and gets rid of odor. I haven't tried putting it in the freezer, but if you could fit it inside a bag or something, that's worth a try. You also want to wear your jeans as much as possible while breaking them in. After a year or so of wearing them, you'll have a pretty nice looking pair of jeans. blushing

As for washing them, just throw them in the washing machine and hang dry. Don't worry about the wrinkles, when you hang dry them because they work themselves out as you wear them.

Hey, that's how I did it and my jeans looks great. I got the vodka tip from a costume designer who uses that technique to take odor from sweat off costumes that's been worn in shows. Also, I've washed my jeans in the washing machine numerous times and hanged dried them. This is all from what I've done, and it's worked for me. It you think it's wrong, would you care explaining why I am wrong?
