The amount of clothing I have is rather shocking. I have.. a lot. Too much to even consider counting. Two full wardrobes (both double doors) and a chest of drawers full. Plus mini drawers for my underwear/bras/hosiery. I am a total girl in that aspect.
How many times I wear something before washing it depends on what I do whilst wearing the clothing and whether or not I get it dirty.
I have about 15 dress shirts I cycle through. 5 pairs of dress trousers plus a few suits. Maybe 5 pairs of casual pants, plus a few pairs of shorts. I've had more, but they don't fit and I purged them.
maybe 10 t-shirts not in storage.
anyway, jeans I wash when dirty, wool pants, suit, wool sweaters dry clean when they need it. Shirts, underwear socks, every time I wear.
When I get home from work, I tend to switch out of dry-clean only stuff. Otherwise my kids get them dirty, I get angry and don't want to because its not their fault. So I change right away.
Usually 2-3 days when I was a civilian, exception from socks and boxers which I change more often. But now that I'm in the army I might wear my clothes for 2 weeks sometimes. Change of boxers have been upped to 2-3 days. Usually so tired after daily service, that I don't bother doing the laundry.
I dunno. 100 items maybe.
Frequency of washes - Depends on the item. Socks and jocks, wear 'em once. Most t-shirts and shirts, same thing. Wear 'em once. Tops, I can wear two or three times. Trousers, depends on the type. I can wear jeans and chinos for a week without washing them. I'd rather not, but I could.
My thinking is, if it touches the skin and a sweat gland, wear it once. If it touches the skin and no sweat glands, you can wear it twice. Scarves hats and shoes can be washed as needed. Once a season maybe.
I have tons of clothes. I have about 15-20 pairs of jeans. 25 nice shirts. 5 t-shirts. 3 dresses. one skirt. 3 hoodies. one jacket. 5 scarves. 4 basketball shorts. 4 jean shorts. 20 pairs of socks. 6 flip flops. A pair of boots. A pair of tennis shoes. A pair of sandals. A pair of heels. 10 or so tank tops.
It depends on how long I wear something. If I just throw on a shirt and run to the store, I'll hang the shirt back up when I get home. I wear jeans twice before washing them. Tank tops I'll wear for a couple of days before washing. Jackets aren't something I wear often, so I wouldn't wash them unless I spilled something on it. Socks are worn once.
Well I never wear underwear twice. But yoga pants I wear like twice and then wash them and that's same for my sweatshirts but if they got dirty then I wash them right away.
Once for and kind of top and underwear.
Jeans and sweatpants maybe about 3-5 times
2-3 times for leggings and yoga pants.
About 5 times for bras because they're annoying to wash.
For my coat I have to take it to the dry cleaners so I only wash once a year.
I wear socks once and maybe twice before I wash them.
Skirts and Dresses I rarely wear them so only once.
For a hoodie I will wash after several weeks of wearing it since it's not actually touching my body unless I get something on it or unless the fabric absorbed a funky smell like cigarettes. The same goes for the other clothing too.
I do not wash scarfes, hats, or shoes unless something gets on them.
