If you’re living in warm, humid weather conditions, you’ll inadvertently sweat and create a slight stink in your jeans over time. Sweat less with our picks of lightweight raw denim. Always, always hang your denim up to air after each and every wear, and if necessary, put them out to dry in the sun. An alternative is to carefully fold the jeans into an airtight zip bag and place it in the fridge overnight. Strange, but it works.

These steps are crucial so that you get decent-smelling jeans without the need to give them a wash. Oh, do let family members know that they aren’t supposed to throw your raw denim jeans together with their laundry. Not only will they get mad at you for staining their clothes, you’ll be crying buckets after all your hard work goes down the drain. Read on to find out when you should wash your denim.
