Really nice guide! +rep from me too :3
However, from what I've tried myself, sandpapers work wonder too!
Make sure you follow the grain line of the fabric though, otherwise it would look kinda weird.
Note that you are not suppose to wash your jeans too often. You just have to make sure you look after them well, and keep them clean.
Edit: The reason why you shouldn't wash your jeans too often is because more you wash it, the lighter the colour will get (On some) and also it will losen the fabric too.
