Frequent washing is part of the weakness and decadence, this world is coming to an end, I am telling ya.
My dad was (is) tough as nails and quit school to join airborne in WWII. Starch and wool both bothered his skin terribly. I share his sensitivity, and can't bear to wear wool or stiff clothes.Anyone remember starch? That stufff will make clean pants stand up on their own. It used to be mandatory in the military.:yuck:
This doesn't apply to mountain climbing (that is going alpine) btw.I was amazed when I saw this article that said that you should wear pants and shirts/blouses 4-5 times before washing.
I would *never* consider that with clothes I wear to work. Clothes pick up smells, it's not a matter of do they look dirty. After work each day, my clothes go into the dirty clothes hamper. The exception is a suit jacket which I will wear several times before sending to the dry cleaners.
when I was working at the slave-labour bakery I didnt wash my clothes for nearly a week of wear. whats the point? as soon as I start working all new clothes would smell of bakery anyway. and sweat is 'clean!' as long as you let it dry so no bacteria grows, its ok! actually I knew I smelled but I just didnt care anymore! grrr! they deserved to have smelly employees!
