About a month ago I washed a old favorite pair of skinny jeans. I had pulled it out of the wash folded it up and put it away. Three weeks later, I was headed out for some shopping – so naturally, I pulled out my old favorite pair of skinny jeans. But for some reason, the fit wasn’t right. No matter how many times I twisted myself in absurd yoga positions I couldn’t get my jeans to fit properly.

.
However, this isn’t the first time that this has happened. Incidents like this seem to have followed me for a large portion of my life. Especially after birthdays, and holiday seasons.

.
Inspired by Purex and their lets be honest promotion, which encourages us to come clean about life, laundry, and whatever- I’ve decided to confront this mysterious shrinking jeans issue honestly. Really. I mean it- it’s time I was completely honest about this…

The honest-to-goodness truth about my shrinking jeans mystery (a mystery Nancy Drew sure never had to solve) is that…there are crazy little jean shrinking trolls living in my washer! See that wasn’t so hard! Join me in my bouts with a little honesty and enter to win a bottle of Purex detergent!

.
This video is my favorite- obviously she has the same skinny jean shrinking trolls in her washer as well!
