    Default How often do you wear your jeans before washing?

    After the pj poll I got to wondering whether all you single wear pj people are the same with your jeans. I personally wash mine only when they are dirty. If I can get a few wearings out of them before having to wash, I am a happy girl!

    It depends on the amount of spandex in them and if they are streatched out too much.

    ITA, when the bum is sagging so it looks like you're wearing a diaper... time to wash

    2-3 times is my vote. Does depend on the jeans though, and how long you wear them.

    At home I usually wear jammies or track pants. When I go out I throw jeans on. As soon as I get home I put my track pants back on. So I do wear my jeans several times providing they are not dirty. An outting may only be an hour or so.

    Depends on the jeans. My expensive ones can go 5 or 6 times without a wash (as long as the kids haven't smeared snot on me, of course). My cheapies usually last 2 or 3 wears.

    I didn't see the pj poll, but pjs touch areas that sweat, etc. (tmi) and jeans don't. So unless they get dirty, I will wear mine a week before washing.
    Please always show kindness in your posts as the person receiving it may need it more than you will ever know.

    I agree with this, I usually switch into pj pants OR just comfy old jeans when home. Then to take ds to school or go get him, or tgo anywhere else, I wear normal clothing lol. So yeah if I wear the same pair for four days, it's still not likely a full workday, kwim?
    Plus...jeans take up a lot of space in the washer, and it's expensive to wash clothes in our building. ALSO I don't own very many pairs lol so I can't wash them all every time I do laundry, or I'd be traipsing to and from school in pj pants...too cold!

    I wear mine 2-3 times since I tend to get into jammie pants when I get home too. I agree with pp, I sweat a lot (sometimes) in my sleep (tmi I know) which is why I change jammies every night.

    I wear mine everyday, because I still have quite a bit of pregnancy weight on, so they are the only jeans that fit me right now. I do laundry 2-3 times per week, so I usually throw them in there at some point. Unless they get spat up on, I wear them for probably a week. They're good jeans, so they don't sag, ever really.

    I only have one pair of decent fitting jeans. I still have about 7 pounds to lose and refuse to buy more pants until I lose the weight. I wear them 2-3 times before washing. Sometimes more often if I've been outside playing with the kids, or they wiped their dirty hands on me.

    Oh my gosh, you mommies and your laundering... you put me to shame. I seriously wear my jeans into the ground. But that's what I love about jeans! I do tend to wash them more in the winter when you get that lovely wet ankle action going on, complete with salt stains.
