It's the great debate of the laundry room.
If you ask people how often they should wash their jeans, you'll get a variety of answers and interesting suggestions.
While we won't try to sway you, experts say there is a right and wrong way to clean those jeans and make them last longer.
Answers vary, depending on who you ask
Like fingerprints, it seems everyone has a different response when asked about washing jeans.
"If I wear them a couple times, I wash them in cold water then hang them on a line to dry," viewer Ashley Tate told Eyewitness News.
Others said three of four times was the rule of thumb.
Still, others said you should only wash jeans when you spill something on them.
"I spot clean where needed, but to be honest with you, I was them as little as possible," viewer Joey Rodriguez said. "Especially the dark ones, or really expensive ones."
So who is right?
Wash those jeans less often
People balked in 2014 when Levi's CEO Chip Bergh said you could go as much as year or longer without washing your jeans.
While many viewers we spoke to agreed with Bergh, refusing to wash their jeans aside from spot cleaning, fashion stylist Wendy Patterson disagrees.
She tells Eyewitness News you should aim to wash jeans every four or five wears, sometimes less if the denim has a dirty wash or special coloring.
Some viewers said they will only wash to help tighten up jeans that have become too loose.
Patterson said buying the right pair of jeans matters, and recommended finding a pair with one or two percent elastin, lycra or spandex to help maintain their shape.
