    Shirts and undergarments get worn once. Jeans get worn 3-4 times. Sweatshirts are usually worn for a week.

    Once a week. Underwear, socks, t-shirts and shirts worn once, trousers and hoodies about 4-5 times, coats I can go a month without washing it.

    I'm a sniffer. I don't care for how long i've worn something -- as long as it smells fresh, i will wear it. Although i avoid wearing the same shirt two consecutive days, just to keep up appearances. I always rotate through a couple of outfits.

    Underwear and socks are an obvious exception to the sniffing method, but i must admit i sniff those too sometimes. They just never pass the test
    ik sprokkel wat dagen, drop baggage,
    soms heb ik geen zin om die koffers te dragen,
    ik laat los, los het op, word onzichtbaar
    en geef de buitenlucht wat ruimte terug
    dus.. nu zit ik op m'n fiets alsof het niets is,
    maar niets kan toch niet uit zichzelf pedalen laten draaien?

    i live where housekeepers are relatively inexpensive.
    so whenever, the housekeeper comes. she deals with it.

    I recently had a convo with an INTP that i value the opinion of regarding this. We discussed the overwashing of clothing. Namely that so many items are washed while they are still clean. This is bad for a number of reasons. The most obvious being the amount of energy they use, and (the) cost.
    If i have a top that has a big glob of oil on it or smells bad then yes of course i wash it. It seems incredibly pointless and wasteful to wash items that are clean simply because they have been worn once.
