at home i only wear lounging pants and tops. change every other day after shower, unless i really drop food on them when cooking. i don't wear any underwear at all when home. i sleep naked so no p.j. i rarely wear a bra more that four hours, if i leave the house. so about every other wear i wash them. i still seem to have tons of laundry. i haven't done any wash except towels for about a month. i have been sick and had no energy to do it. i wash towels about every third or fourth time they are used. only me, and i am clean when i use them. some are in the drier right now. really need to get caught up on the wash really soon. i feel clean and that is what counts. kitchen towel pretty much one use, then wash. cool water and all fabric bleach.

This thread is becoming somewhat of a TMI thread. :)

I'm a guy and this is what I do.
All shirts get washed every wear.
Jean, khakis and shorts get worn at least 5 times unless they get visually dirty.
Underwear every time.

Dress Pants, Sport Coats, Suits get brushed down after every wear. I do not wear often and dry clean if I have worn them a bunch. Only about twice a year or if visually soiled or it was hot out.

Towels and sheets get washed once a week.

Laundry unfortunately is a never ending cycle. I am a weirdo though, I enjoy doing laundry and ironing so it is not a chore for me.

I hate laundry so much I will NOT let Shrek buy me a washer and dryer. I hit the laundromat every two weeks, 2-3 hours and I'm done. That is my "me" time and I take myself out to lunch, I'm usually gone about 5 hours.

i've always been anal about this. it started in high school, and my mom eventually gave up and taught me to wash my own clothes. nowadays, dw does a lot of laundry.

t shirts, underwear, and socks are worn once, then into the wash.

jeans and sweatshirts twice, sweaters twice, unless they get dirty or sweaty from work or food on the first wear, then into the laundry.

dress shirts once, suits maybe twice, ties once a millenia.

skiing clothes every month during the season.

Interesting! Consensus seems to be that undies and socks get one wearing, bras maybe a couple, everything else gets washed when needed.

I will try tossing jeans in the dryer after one wearing to freshen and shape.

Now I have another laundry question. 2 years ago I rescued a very VERY hairy cat. Now, I absolutely cannot wear anything dark, because that horrible fine cat hair turns into little lint balls. Is there anything I can put into the washer or dryer to catch those hairs? (Maybe the cat should be thrown into the washer and dryer once a week?)
