Most stuff once. Denim stuff probably two or three times.

sugarbum Fri 14-Feb-20 14:32:28

Oh cardis I will wear for weeks!

Dividingthementalload Fri 14-Feb-20 14:33:30

Once. Unless it has no skin contact like a top layer jumper. If it’s next to skin, including tops, jeans, trousers etc, it’s one day only. Kids and adults.

Gillian1980 Fri 14-Feb-20 14:33:41

Jeans a few times, jumpers a couple of times. Everything else once. DH is the same.

Daughter 4 and son 9 months, usually once for everything.

I generally wear a top for two days unless it is very sweaty or I've spilt something down it. Jeans I wear for 3-4 days unless I've messed them up somehow. Hoodies until they get mucky or smell!

FizzyIce Fri 14-Feb-20 14:35:17

Same as the others , jeans a few times , tees once and jumpers once or twice

Trahira Fri 14-Feb-20 14:35:49

Jeans a week (but not worn every day), tops two or three times.

Oysterbabe Fri 14-Feb-20 14:36:07

Jeans maybe 3 times. Tops generally twice. It depends whether my kids put their grubby paws on them. I shower every morning and have a desk job, they aren't getting sweaty and smelly. With kids twice if it stays clean enough, which is rare.

Glassio Fri 14-Feb-20 14:36:54

Jean's 3-4 days
tops 1-2 days
shower every day so they're not starting off on a dirty body :/ underwear obvs every day.

CakeandCustard28 Fri 14-Feb-20 14:37:22

Once same with everyone in my family including DC.

YakkityYakYakYak Fri 14-Feb-20 14:37:52

Most things once. Jeans I’ll wear quite a few times before washing. I definitely don’t wash my bras often enough blush

Slith Fri 14-Feb-20 14:39:06

Depends on how dirty it is.

FeedMeChoc Fri 14-Feb-20 14:39:37

Tops once. Bottoms 2-3 wears.

Children only once.

Baluga Fri 14-Feb-20 14:40:23

See, my dh thinks I’m weird because I always wash dds uniforms after one wear, I have a friend who only washes the uniform once a week and most friends I know let them have at least a couple of wears first. I just can’t do it 🙈

I’ll wear jeans a couple of times, everything else once.

Abouttimemum Fri 14-Feb-20 14:41:34

I’ve had the same jeans on all week shock
Few times for everything generally.
The young un wears everything once but he gets scruffy about a millisecond after getting dressed.

CremeEggThief Fri 14-Feb-20 14:41:46

If I don't get at least a week out of a pair of jeans or a bra, I'd be cross!

I wear everything at least twice or three times, apart from knickers and socks. In general, DS got at least two wears out of everything, even as a toddler.

Frariedeamin Fri 14-Feb-20 14:42:34

I don’t have a fixed time. If it’s got dirt/food on it or it smells then it goes in the wash. Sometimes that’s a week, sometimes that is an hour.

RedRiverShore Fri 14-Feb-20 14:43:11

Tops once, bottoms and cardigans 3-4 times, washable coats get done yearly in the summer.

Camomila Fri 14-Feb-20 14:43:27

Jeans and cardigans a few days, tops once.

DS I usually get two days out of his vest and top, his jumper and tracksuit bottoms get dirty every day at nursery. (He is out of nappies so it's a normal vest, not one with poppers)
The baby isn't a sicky type so usually gets 2 days out of vests and baby grows.

Lllot5 Fri 14-Feb-20 14:43:47

Every thing once except trousers they get two unless they’re dirty.
