I was reading about how it's not good to wash everything after one wearing, especially things like jeans, or work slacks, skirts ....
Yeah, that's what I think, too.
I wonder how much of the "gentle, environmentally friendly " (
) washing machine detergent I use actually remains
in the garments after the full wash/rinse cycle.
I figure the more unnecessary washing, the faster the garments wear out.
And I like the idea of conserving energy. Why use more electricity than you have to?
I use my washing machine as little as I can, saving up as much as for Big Washes (usually to be dried on the clothesline) as I can.
Well, I don't wash everything after one wearing, but I don't like the idea of putting them back in the closet, definately not a clothes drawer. But maybe that's all right?
Now that a more vexing issue!
Most once-worn clothes (even jeans) I like to hang up and air before the next wearing. On the shower rack if it's too cold or wet for out on the decking, just outside the back door.
Just makes me feel better about it.
Then I don't feel too bad if they are hung back up amongst my clean clothes.
-worn T shirts are pretty good for sleeping in, too.
