Hah, on the days I don't work, I never get out of pajama pants.

The second I get home, I put them on.

Those get washed constantly, but everything else is "as needed."

Except sheets: I have to have fresh sheets. Very unenvironmental of me, but I change bed linens near daily. Less since now my mom has to help since its hard because of my back issues.

I'm such a slob with sheets. I don't even remember the last time we washed them. Actually, I tend to fall asleep on the couch with a duvet and don't even end up using sheets. Yup, I'm gross!


Ha! Samesies. Couch sleepers of the world unite!

I do wear socks more than once because my feet don't sweat and I don't have enough socks. (I'm too picky! Plus it's hard to find non-wool socks that are warm enough.) Underwear gets changed every time I shower which is usually once a day, except for days when I don't have to go anywhere, and then I just keep wearing the same undies under my jammies/sweats as I laze about on the couch. Bras go through a rotation so they never get worn two days in a row (I read somewhere that you need to give them a day or two to "snap back" after use). Since they're hand wash only, and I hate doing hand wash, I'm a little embarrassed at how infrequently they get washed. (I own a LOT of bras.) Jeans/trousers go about a week between washings, and shirts usually get worn twice (although not in a row), maybe three times. Sheets and towels tend to get done whenever I have a white load (towels) or a dark load (sheets) to fill up. Or whenever they just get too gross, whichever comes first. Since I have to line dry everything (no dryer), I have to time my laundry doing well, because I know I won't be able to use/pack anything for a day or two after it goes in the wash. If I miss that window of opportunity, I've been known to wear stuff that should have been washed, but hasn't, because I have no choice.

Towels depend. I usually use the same towel for a week. Wash clothes though are every other day.

As for sheets, again it depends. In summer they may get changed more frequently or if one of us gets sick but those are a 2 week or so change.

Do towels really get dirty? You rub them on yourself just after washing, when you're at your cleanest, so surely they can't need washing often*?

*disclaimer: I may be gross. I last washed a towel about 2 months ago.

Well towels get wet and although they dry, bacteria thrives in hot, moist areas like bathrooms. So I don't have any proof that microscopic bacteria is on my towel, I figure it is better to wash it than not.

I need to wash my towels otherwise I have a mental breakdown. I think it's because I like them when they're hard and crunchy and scrapey from being washed, rather than a real reason.

My bathroom is frosty at best, so I'm not sure about bacteria, but I could probably grow a good polar bear.

Do you know what's the best? Wearing big huge socks that are way too big for you. I am always changing out of tights at the end of the day and putting on my boyfriend's socks. It's like warm blankets around your feet. I swear I lose like 90% of my body heat when my feet are cold.

But doesn't your bathroom get steamy when you take a shower?

Ha! Yes, but my jeans are baggy mom jeans! In the old skinny jeans days, they'd have been off and in the wash at the end of the day.

I used to think "drying clean water off clean body = clean towel" until someone pointed out that you're also rubbing off a bunch of dead skin cells. And yeah... warm, humid environment plus bacteria plus dead skin cells doesn't sound as clean. I use a towel twice, maybe three times tops.

I just set a goal of washing my sheets once a month. I was bragging about it to my friends and they looked horrified. Woops.
Otherwise, I was towels once a week, underwear and socks after one use, and jeans and hoodies when I realize they haven't been done for a while.

I use towels maybe 3 or 4 times? I guess I'm gross. The linen closet is downstairs, though! I'm usually in the shower before I remember to grab a clean towel!

In the winter, sometimes I don't change my socks for a few days because I wear them to bed and leave them on when I get dressed the next morning.

I thought I was gross for doing this. I just really hate changing socks when I'm cold. And in the winter I am always cold.

I guess that means we're not gross! Yay! My feet are always cold, so yeah, if I don't have to take my socks off, I'm not gonna!


I need socks, but can't find any that don't cause agony. I'm still wearing my Birks since my clogs don't work without socks. Anything on my numb foot feels really odd and painful, like burning needles. I need socks that are super light, but still warm. And not tight (most women's socks are too tight since I wear a 9.5)

See I can slack on other things, but if I don't do sheets once a week, my acne gets a million times worse. I guess I could just cheat and change my pillowcase more often, but zits are usually enough of a motivation to wash the sheets every week.

Am I a crasshole if I call 311 about a car with a REALLY sensitive alarm that is always parked on our street? It goes off for a minute at a time with REALLY loud honking about 10 times a day and in the middle of the night, too. fuuuuuck.

I called one night after listening to a neighbour's house alarm for a couple of hours. It is a regular occurrence and I could never figure out what house it was coming from. So basically, I got told off for calling emergency number since it wasn't an emergency and told to ring the local station directly. So if that is an option for you do that.

okay. i will. thanks! i just don't want to be "that guy," but honestly, i have a feeling that whoever owns this car parks it far away from their place so they don't have to hear it.

I lived next to one of those. Guy in college whose parents bought him a new BMW. We were always hoping that one of the many alarms would herald an actual theft attempt so we wouldn't have to listen to it every time somebody parked next to him at 3am.

yeah, that's what 311 is here in NY. It's the way you get in touch with the police or other city departments without using the emergency line.

I think I am going to have to deactivate my facebook for a bit. I have an internet buddy on it and she is starting to rely on me a bit too much. My own mental health is so fragile and I already have to deal with people with chronic mental illnesses in work all day that I don't think I can give her support as a friend. I feel bad about it but it is too hard. Bleurgh. Life would be so much easier if there was no mental illness.
