Wearing jeans for 15 months doesn’t collect much more bacteria than two weeks does

Josh Le wore a pair of jeans for 15 months, swabbed them for bacteria, washed them, wore them for another 2 weeks, and re-swabbed them. The two swabs contained similar amounts of bacteria.

Controlling odour was a different concern, Le said, admitting the jeans began to smell after a few months.He solved that problem, however.”I triple-bagged them and put them in the freezer,” he said.

(Maybe this just means that washing doesn’t eliminate bacteria all that well?)
