freeze wash jeans 1 How To: Freeze Wash Your Jeans

Some people think that it’s better for your denim jeans if you don’t wash them, so to make sure that preserving your jeans doesn’t mean making them into a home for wayward bacteria, Instructables member sunshiine has put together this scientifically effective method for keeping your jeans clean by freeze washing them. This tutorial actually calls for a combination of bacteria-killing methods, including spraying them with vinegar and hanging them in the sun. These other methods may be what really kills the bacteria, but apparently leaving your jeans in the freezer over night freshens the fabric, and the whole process saves a lot of water as well.
