4 Results from Not Washing Your Clothes Enough

1.    Nasty Odors When you don’t wash your clothing as often as recommended, or reasonable, the items may begin to develop some strong smells and unpleasant odors. Including body odor, musty mildew smells from putting clothes away while wet from sweat, etc. If you are wearing clothing to workout in or it’s a hot day and you are sweating a lot, it’s probably a good idea to wash the items after each wear.

2.    Unsightly Stains During a normal day, your body secretes a variety of oils, additionally dribbling your coffee or that spaghetti sauce at lunch will make stains on the items. If you do not treat and launder stains, no matter how small or insignificant, they will set, and you will likely never be able to get the stains out.

3.    Gross Germs Germs and microbes will accumulate on unwashed clothing. The longer you wait to wash something and the more time you wear it the more you are exposing the items to other people’s germs. Germs can and will stick to your clothing. These germs can accumulate over time. Additionally, the more germs on your clothing the more germs you are bringing into your home.
