change fabric softner and washing powder? if you are too use to these smells you can sometimes not smell them as strong so try different ones see if they mask the smell. or try and hang outside in good wind.

You won't get rid of the smell,this is the very reason I've stopped buying Black jeans I and OH have had several pairs from different outlets and they stink,it must be the dye they use.

What brand are the jeans out of interest

you shouldn't use fabric conditioner for denim it ruins lycra and other stretch fabrics. as for the smell use half a cup of white vinegar in the last rinse, that should do it.

you could also try adding a tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda to your usual washing powder too.

Haven't any ideas on how to get rid of the smell, loumar76s vinegar idea sounds like it should work though, vinegar's definitely good for stubborn stains.

Have you looked at M&S jeans? I own a pair of black jeans I bought from there a few years ago and don't remember them having any bad smells when new.

Try putting them in a air tight plastic bag in the freezer to see if that kills the smell.

I had the same problem with some sainsburys black jeans. Despite several washes the smell remained,they are in the bin now.

Maybe someone tried them on, farted in them, then put them back on the hanger.

I think that this is caused by some preservative they use for storage. Bought a jacket that stunk no matter what we done. Took it back and got a refund but the first assistant was saying it didn't smell - then a second one came up and said "what's that smell"
