do you wear clothes more than once before you wash them (if they aren't smelly or stained obviously)?

  • Yes! If they don't smell and aren't stained, I keep wearing them until they do! I like to think that it's my own personal way of doing good for the environment. :P

  • Yes. It makes no sense to wash something that isn't dirty.

  • yes i do. especially because they shrink and look different after you wash them so i go as long as possible in between washes, lol.

  • Jeans (usually in the winter) and hoodies or sweatshirts

  • pants always! Shirts, I didn't used to until I got pregnant and only had a few maternity options, because I didn't want to wear them out by washing them all the time, and I didn't want to be washing my clothes twice a week lol

  • I rewear pants and bras all the time. I don't with shirts or underwear or socks.

  • It depends on the item and how long I wore it. Jeans, usually. Same w/ my pajamas. Shirts - if they smell like my perfume or hair product, or otherwise have the appearance of being "worn", then I will wash after a single wearing. Bras, not always. (Especially if they are brand new. I was told to wear them 4 times w/o washing to help them form to my body and then I could lander at will.) Underwear and socks ALWAYS washed after wearing. If it's dry clean only stuff for work, then they go to the cleaners after a couple wearings and get Frebreezed/pressed in the meantime (unless I get something on them).

  • Defends on what it is and what I did while I was wearing it. Never any type of undergarments though. My son thinks that he can wear clothes all week during the summer. I literally have to go to his room at night and take the dirty ones out or he will wear the same shirt for days in a row and we all know how dirty boys can get. LOL
