Anyone know how to get rid of awful new jeans smell?
There was a thread about this a while back. It was mostly black jeans. The conclusion was that you can't get rid of it. Some people had successfully returned the jeans to the shop saying that the smell was a fault.
I found the answer to the chemical smell in new jeans today. After trying several things that did not work and hanging them outside for two weeks I still could not bring them in the house they smelled so bad. We live in the country and have a small dog, my husband was in the pantry and noticed the stuff we use for dogs that get sprayed by a skunk, so he said try it. I ADDED NATURES MIRACLE SKUNK ODOR REMOVER TO THE WASH AND IT WORKED. NOW MY JEANS ARE IN THE CLOSET.
