*Just to Clarify: I’ve had a few not so nice comments so this is for your clothing, not your children or your husband. I’m assuming you don’t climb trees or work in a factory and your clothes don’t get soiled everyday. If they’re soiled, obviously wash them.

    These are awesome. A lot of people don’t realize they don’t have to wash certain items after every wash. I wash my jeans after 5-6 wears, because I work from home — not like I’m out getting them dirty.

    Actually only in the USA people wash their clothes after every wear. In Europe it isn’t happenning at all!

    Oh good, I’m not the only one that wears things multiple times before washing!

    Yea! I do this already, so it’s good to hear I’m not gross-haha. I do wash most of my tops after every wear, though, because just snapping my fingers makes me sweat. But, pants and skirts, not so much.
