How Many Wears Before You Need to Wash

We all wash our clothes to keep ourselves and our clothes smelling so fresh and oh-so-clean, but there is such a thing as too much washing and too little. There are downsides to both extremes: laundering your clothes more than you need to can shorten their lifespan and wear them out quickly, but washing too rarely can be unhygienic and cause a lot of icky bacteria growth. Heres a general guide to follow:Bras: After three to four wears.Underwear: After every wear.Socks and stockings: One to two wears.Sportswear and swimwear: After every wear.Jeans: Five to six wears. Although there are some that advocate washing as little as possible. In fact, the director of brand concepts and special projects for Levi Strauss & Co. washes his once every six months.Tops: One to two wears.Dresses: One to two wears.Leggings: One to two wears.Pants, skirts, and shorts: Three to four wears.Jackets and blazers: Five to six wears.Coats: Once every two months of wear.PJs: Three to four wears.Of course, this guide doesnt apply to the days when excessive sweating or accidental spills happen, and to those who have different hygiene preferences.
