Clean Jeans

There was an article in today’s Boston Globe about how to extend the life of your jeans. The gist of it was that you shouldn’t wash them too often – every other week is fine. And put them in the washer inside out and use delicate detergent.

Do these people only stroll in clean places? I’m sure they don’t have chickens. Or mud. Or dogs. I’d rather have worn out jeans than a life that doesn’t require laundering.

However, I suppose that infrequent washings would work for teenage boy jeans – my fifteen-year old son seems to outgrow his clothes every few months. I could simply buy new jeans, never wash them, and toss them when they get too short. Easy!
