What do you guys know about this? Does it actually work or is it just a myth?

My dad used to freeze his jeans before ironing them for a perfect crease. As he got older, he relaxed on keeping his jeans pressed, but when I was a kid he had this really long ritual before ironing jeans.

Was his reasoning to freezing his jeans similar to what's in that article?

I hope I don't get invited to dinner where folks are putting their dirty clothes in the freezer with the food I'll be served!

Just wash your stinky things, please!

No it was really to keep them nice and stiff. He washed, wrapped in newspaper, put it in the fridge until it dried, and then ironed with starch.

i don't really understand the point of asking "does this work" when the article you linked says "this does not work".

When your jeans stink it's time to wash them.

I have never heard of popping them in the freezer.
