Overwashing clothes

Since the winter is coming I'm considering having my girls wear their school uniforms twice before they are washed.

I'd just Febreese them and get two uses. Has anyone tried this?

I've read that we wash our clothes too often

No Febreze.  Everything can be worn twice unless it gets a spill or a stain.  Jeans can be worn 3x.

You don't need to wash anything every time except underclothes. Or If they get super sweaty/dirty. Even some spills can just be spot cleaned.

We always wear pants/shorts/jeans several times before washing, unless we spill or get dirt on them. And sweatshirts/sweaters. But shirts get washed after ever use. I'm kind of of the thought that if I didn't sweat in it or get it dirty, then it's good for another wear.

I know and agree but I still continue to wash them, lol

EXCEPT DD20 won't let me wash her jeans until she has worn them twice. The only exception is if she gets something on them

This. I have a hard time actually doing that though.

Febreeze isn’t green....

And yes, I see nothing wrong with wearing clothing more than once before washing.
Unless they are soiled or kids are doing PE in them

As long as they don't get anything on them it's fine. Unless your kids don't bathe you don't need to febreeze them between times they are worn.
