Don’t Wash Your Jeans: Scratch Them and Release the Mint

Posted on Apr 14 2014 - 9:14pm by Julius

If there is one thing lacking from most pairs of jeans it is, frankly, a minty smell. After all, everything in life is better with a bit of mint, isn’t it?

Well, your longing for that fresh smell on your denims is about to end very soon. This is because the nice people at Naked & Famous have come up with an idea which might just catch on; scratch & sniff jeans. That’s right, give your trousers a quick scratch and your nostrils will be filled with the delightful scent of fresh mint.

Less Washing, Even if You Aren’t Really Lazy


Clearly, this is a bonus for anyone who doesn’t like washing their clothes very often. In the case of denims, it might not even be because you are too darned lazy. Possibly you are worried about them getting all stretched and out of shape if you throw them in the washing machine. By releasing the mint fragrance you can keep them smelling good without the dangers of washing them.

Sadly, the best things in life don’t last forever, do you? The minty smell in these scratch and sniff jeans will only last for around 5 washes. They are made in Canada and now cost close to £100. We reckon that crushing up a big pile of Polo mints and rubbing them onto your normal jeans probably wouldn’t have the same effect.

Would you like to wear minty jeans and do you reckon you would wash them less often than your current trousers?
