(see www.marcgunther.com/2010/11/04/dont-wash-your-jeans/ )
How odd, since I was recently thinking about this, but not to that extreme. I was just wanting the kids to to wear their jeans 2 or 3 times, not just once. If you think that's extreme, check out this guy www.thestar.com/news/canada/article/924787--student-wears-unwashed-jeans-for-15-months .
Just when I was running out of room in my freezer, now I find I could be using it for killing the stink off of jeans? Really? I think I will just Frebreeze them, thank you. And still wash them after 3 wearings, thank you.

Crafts for the kiddos: So easy, I don't know why we don't do this more often! We use food coloring and some small jars or vases. That's it. Very good lesson to teach color blending. As long as the kids are careful with the food coloring, older kids may be able to do this on their own. After we lay out newspaper to prevent counter stains, we fill the jars almost to the top with water. Food coloring is added one drop at a time, letting the food coloring mix on it's own. (No swishing the bottle to mix the colors!) You can see in the picture, all the pretty swirling of colors. Once there is a single color in a jar, another color can be added to make a new color.
These will last indefinatley if capped closed. Best kept in a sunny window out of little one's hands, but where the sun can shine thru.
