How Often Is Really Necessary?!

Seriously..

[via]
This is what the laundry looks like on a constant basis..and I do it every.single.day!  It's always my favorite when I wash something in the morning and see it back in the laundry that same afternoon.  If you throw a jersey on over your clothes for 13 minutes does it really need washed?  How about soccer socks [over your regular socks might I add!] that you had on inside for all of 32 seconds?!  Is it really necessary to wash these items?  Do you have a spouse or children that do this to you, too?

How often do you wash your jeans?  Hoodies?  How about Pajamas or dresses?  I have to admit..Jeans & hoodies are my favorite the second wear after wash!  I usually only wash my pajamas & bath towels 1-2 times a week.  Dresses...well since I hardly wear them I..well..I'll be honest..I don't know if I have ever washed a dress!!  Does that make me disgusting?!  I just bought 2 more so I think I own like 5 now but I never wear them..if I do it's for like 2 hours.  Wow..I feel like I should go home and wash all of my dresses now! :)

Thoughts?!

  1. Jeans [which I rarely wear because I am in scrubs 40+ hours a week] I was about the 3rd or 4th time I wear them, depending on what I do in them. Sweatshirts; hardly ever. Scrubs every day I wear them--hospitals are nasty- I do not want that crap lingering around on my clothes or laundry basket. I even have a seperate basket for them, which I wipe down with clorox wipes like every 2 days. :)

  2. oh laundry - it all depends on how long I wear it and what we're doing. I'm pretty sure I end up washing my jeans every other time, but mainly because I wear them all day & with kiddos; dresses whenever I feel like they're dirty - if they have to be dry cleaned at least every 3rd wear or it'd get pretty expensive quickly :) Speaking of laundry, guess I should get started on our massive mound - I put it off last week at the end of the week, so it's a real mountain now!

  3. Jeans & PJ's get washed after about 3 wears. Towels are usually once a week.
    The thing I've had to get used to is starting to wash my bras every other wear. I used to go 4-5 wears (is that gross?), but I had an unfortunate incident where I learned that you can, in fact, get ringworm by trying on a bathing suit top in a store that someone else who had ringworm tried on. I don't recommend it.

  4. I wear my jeans a lot before washing them....usually I only wear them for a few hours at a time so I don´t wash all the time. Sweatshirts....if I see a spot on them it´s time for washing! I hate doing laundry and there are certain things that need to be washed after one use and then there are others that get more comfortable with each time you wear them. Towels....once or twice a week, I´m always clean when I use it so why do I need to wash it after every use?

  6. I wash everything about once a week. Everything that's in my laundry basket. I don't even go through half of my closet in a week. Plus I don't have a washer so it has to be once a week and we borrow my neighbors machine.

  7. Ha ha. My schedule is much like yours. I don't wear jeans until the weekend, so I wear the same pair the whole weekend. Dress pants I will wear twice providing they didn't get any schmutz on them. Sweaters & sweatshirts I'll wear twice.

    My husband tho throws everything in the laundry basket even if he only wore it for 32 seconds. I lacks the refold and put away gene.

  8. I am terrible about bath towels and pj's there is no reason to wash them everytime i wear/use them but for some reason I do. Now dresses, jeans, and hoodies I will wear them a couple time before washing. Seems I make it alot harder on myself than it has to be

  10. PJs get rotated about once or twice a week...jeans can be stretched out to 3 times and hoodies (depends on where I wear them)! Emma has bad skin so she wears something once and it must be washed....aaaanoying haha!! Laundry stresses me out for sure haha!

  11. oh, I am so bad about laundry, but I am the same way about jeans and hoodies- my husband will wear a pair of jeans all week before he washes them. I do a little every day, but it is definitely my least favorite chore to do!

  12. I never wash my jeans unless something gets spilled on them. The more you wear them, the better they contour to your body! Towels and pjs get washed once a week. My hubby is bad about washing anything that he has put on his body, even if it has only been 5 minutes! But he's finally learning...you want to know how? Because he now helps or does the laundry every weekend!
