This one is paramount, raw-denim lovers! You want to be loyal to your jeans, but you don’t want to be stinking up the streets as you stroll. This latest denim tip teaches you how to wash without washing, and de-odor without screwing up your fit process.
If you think your own Raw Denim Project is starting to smell foul, throw your (dry) jeans in a large zipper bag with some baking soda tied in a handkerchief and freeze it overnight. Freezing brings down the odor and baking soda absorbs odor. Note: if you have stains, spot clean before freezing.
