How often do you wash your jeans?

I wash mine pretty much every time I do laundry but I have a cousin who starts foaming at the mouth if she gets to see that because she's certain it ruins the fabric. So what are the choices:to have a fresh pair on and be bland or to be hip and be recognized by your smell? What do you do?

I wash shirts after I wear them twice at most, but with jeans, I will occasionally wear them up to four times without washing. Unless, of course, it's the summer or I've been exercising in them. Then, if they need it, I will wash them after each wear. Of course, I don't have a rule of thumb- every article of clothing of mine I'm considering wearing gets the "sniff test" every morning. If it fails, in the hamper it goes!

well i wash my jeans thrice a week.whenever i put on my jean and go somewhere, i always come back with little stains on it.i use brush and soap water to clean the stains out, so that i will be able to wear it the next day.

I dont see a big deal of wearing jeans twice without a washing but I prefer washing them then because I like that tight fitted feeling you get when they come out of the dryer. I also think washing the pants helps break them in and I always thought jeans getting better with washing except for maternity jeans, they just fall apart with all that stretch material.

yeah!i avoid washing my jeans with any softener cause it'll just ruin that tight-fitted-feeling :) i hate em when it gets all baggy causing me to pull up my jeans every second or should i say every time i take a step. anyway, i do my laundries at least twice a week separating my jeans from the others. but i wash my jeans not as often. once a week will do. and yet there is always that special-jeans i love wearing eventho i have a dozen of em!

I don't go out often anymore, and sometimes when I do it's just for a few minutes. When I'm home I wear my pajamas or other lounge clothes to be comfortable, and won't get dressed until I plan on going out. If I only run down the road for something and come straight home and change out of my clothes, there's no sense washing them. Most of the time when I'm changing out of my clothes I'll just leave them on the dresser for use another day, unless I feel they're too dirty to wear again without washing. But if I wore the clothes for the entire day, then I'd probably wash them after wearing them once. It can eventually ruin the fabric, but so what... that makes them more comfortable.
