So be honest: When was the last time you washed your favourite jeans?
Some people wash it after each wear. Some people wash it every few weeks. And some people, wash it once or twice a year.
Here's a piece of advice: Only wash your jeans when it starts to smell.
"Isn't that not very hygienic?" You might ask.
Given the nature of denim fabric, most dirts will "drop off" your jeans by itself. Bacteria are not that likely to live on denim, but when it does, it will smell – that will be your signal.
A research even proved a jeans worn for 15 months is no dirtier than a jeans worn for 13 days. So, you don't really have to wash it as frequent as your other clothes.
Washing gives character to your jeans, but over-washing makes your jeans fade and fray faster. Your jeans will end up looking too washed out and pale.
Here's a new jeans:

And here's the jeans after 2 years:
That is how a 2-year-old jeans should look like after frequent wear and disciplined washing. If your jeans looks waaaay beaten up, you might have washed your jeans too frequently.
This is not good:
I used to wash my jeans after every wear (which is bad), but now I'll just stick to once after 3 to 4 wears, which will normally be every 2 months (I don't really wear jeans that often nowadays).
Hope my post is helpful to you. :)
