Hey bees, I just stumbled upon this year old thread about how often we wash our bras and I guess it’s the general consensus that it’s the norm to wear it multiple times before a wash.
So, does this apply to everything!? Be honest, if you dare…would love to see everyone’s take on this. What really goes on and is normal..

Jeans I usually wear until they seem dirty or get stretched out. So like maybe 3-4 times. Other pants I wear pretty much the same. A shirt I wear 1 or 2 times based on what I’m doing when I wear it. Underwear I generally wear less than a full day. Sometimes a full day if I don’t really do anything, but more often than not I change my underwear when I get into PJs because it just feels more clean to do that? I dunno I’m weird lol.
Towels get washed every week or so. Sheets get washed 1-2 times/mo.

Underwear – 1 wear, even if its only for a couple hours
Jeans – multiple wears
Bras – 2+ wears (except if I work out then its just 1)
Shirts – 2+ wears depending on the shirt
Fancy dresses – many wears
Dry clean only – gets dry cleaned once in a blue moon
(I do all of FI’s laundry)
White tshirts – 1 wear
Boxers – 1 wear
Socks – 1 wear
Jeans – multiple wears
Shorts – multiple wears
Work out clothing – 1 wear
Shirts – multiple wears when Fiance is left to his own devices, 1 when I find them first
ETA: Sheets and towels should be washed more often than they actually are. I’m not sure when I last did them.

I rewear everything except panties at least once. I actually have one pair of dry clean only pants that I know I’ve never taken in. In general Indont wash pants until they get baggy orI spill on them.
Shower towels I use twice for my hair/face then twice for my body. The towels in the guest room never get touched so they pretty much sit there indefinitely then i shake off the dust before guests arrive and wash them after they leave. Same with the guest room sheets.
Our sheets I was maybe once every couple weeks. Same with the hand towels in our bathroom. Except face cloths get used only once.

I rewear everything but my undies and my gym clothes, and wash my towels and sheets less often than I’d like to admit.

Jeans a few wears, towels are used for about 3 showers (most people I know do this too, towels must be annoying to wash all the time lol), bras 1-3 times depending on sweatiness, everything else is washed after one use, unless it’s a shirt I had on for just a few hours..oh, and pajama bottoms get worn a few nights, but the shirts are only worn once. Is that weird? lol

Undies – COMMANDO! But my kids only wear once.

In our tropical heat, everything gets one wear and then it’s washed immediately.
Unless I only wear something for a few hours and hardly perspire, then I’d wear it again before it gets washed.
Towels are washed daily and sheets every fortnight.

Bed sheets and Towels once a week.
Knickers (I love that word) – one wear
Bras – as little as possible in the washing machine (I have a bra bag to keep them safe
Clothes – Summer 1 or 2 wears (you sweat like a pig here) / Winter – multiple wears, A – because we don’t sweat so much and B – because they take so long to dry.
I wash with machine, unless otherwise stated. Dry-clean only coats (DH studied textile manufacturing and has saved us a fortune – some dresses I have are ‘dry-clean only’, and Darling Husband says with the textile combination they have it’s BS. I wash them on low setting and are all perfectly fine.
Everything is line-dried – and in the winter a night on the heater to dry through after mostly drying outside

I can wear my jeans 4 or 5 times easy before they get too loose then I wash them. I wash my bras every other week. Everthing else gets washed after I wear it once. Shirts, dresses, panties, socks.
This is only because we have to pay so much to do laundry and we never seem to have quarters I wish our building had a change machine :/ ugh. Once we move and have unlimited laundry access. I’ll wash everything after I wear it… I like it better that way 🙂

All my clothing gets worn after one wash besides jeans which are 3-4 wears and bras which are 2 besides workout ones.
My partner is another story… he seems to forget where the basket is for his shirts and jeans :S I tend to go on a household raid twice a week tho!
