How Often to Wash Every Type of Clothing

Apr 5, 2019


Have you ever paused a moment before putting a worn item of clothing back in your closet? We’ve been there too. While it’s true that most items don’t need to be laundered after each wear, there is a simple science to understanding how long you can go in between washes.

Stained items are a no brainer as those will need immediate attention. Stains that sit longer can be more difficult to remove. For most other pieces, there are always exceptions to the rule. In the summer months, when perspiration can be an unavoidable issue, you may want to air on the side of more frequent laundering. A simple smell test can give you important clues about knowing if it’s time. Of course no one wants to wear clothes that smell, but it’s also important to note that left unattended, perspiration and odors can damage a garments fibers long term. When in doubt, follow our guide here:
