    I wash my clothes after every single wear. Imagine all the places you would have sat all day day. You don't know what your clothes could have picked up.
    I assume you wash your coat and bag every day then as well.

    My hand bag sits on the floor in the porch amongst the shoes. We can't bring shoes into the house.

    I wash my coat weekly. I make sure when I'm buying a coat, it's a machine wash one otherwise I'd never afford the dry clean bill.

    Why not? What do you think is going to happen?

    I wash my clothes if they don't smell fresh or if they are visibly dirty. That way I'm not wasting electricity and water, and my clothes stay in good condition for longer.
    agreed.

    I mean, people can do what they want but I think it's bloody mental to be washing everything after one wear. The attitudes border on OCD.

    I mean, £7 on washing for one person every week is mad! I only spend £8 a week on my gas/electricity in total :eek:
