Wait a second... do you wear the same socks two or three days without washing them??? Astonished Face

To answer the thread... i got like 20 trunks and 12 undershirts
100%.

In fact my hiking merinos socks I wear almost 2 weeks with washing, no odour, nothing.

Gym socks can go about 3 uses but I have to break the habit of just washing them over and over, most likely they can go longer...

I had enough underwear to last 4-5 weeks with daily changing but I got fat recently and can’t wear most of them now. Also have enough socks and t-shirts to last about 9 weeks with daily changing. I have even more socks that I use for different purposes. Nothing to do with saving money on laundry though.

Try Merino Wool socks, that may change your mind.

Went to the gym today to a hardcore aerobics class. Sweaty socks came off and it had no odour and aired out in 10 min and is ready for us again.

I also wear merino wool dress socks to work and love it as I only end up washing the gym sock pair and work sock pair once a week. Less laundry.

One pair of boxers. Wear the same pair everyday for a month then do a wash. That’s the RFD way.

If u don't want to wash ur underwear more than once a month, I think that's a red flag. It's like people who don't mow their lawns regularly or people who let the dishes pile up in the sink. If u r extremely busy, then that's a good excuse in a crisis situation. But if u think it's inconvenient or inefficient, then u don't know the value of regular habits/routines/maintenance.

I didn't even say I want enough for a month so I can cut down my laundry. I just agreed with someone who brought that point up.

I don't think it says anything about a person's habits, I can have enough for a month and still have a clean place to live or cut the grass weekly.

Anyways, my recent laundry load put me at 29 boxers!

If you did laundry once a month (for example), where do you store all the dirty laundry? Isn't that just requiring more hampers and space etc?

Might be bad to do two or three loads at once in one day.

Just wash when you know you have enough for one load.

I have 30+ pairs of various styles of underwear as I business travel weeks at a time and don’t have to rush to do laundry. I don’t own true undershirts as I use tees when I need.

2 or 3 days without washing? I go 2-3 weeks without washing socks. That includes gym socks. Why would I wash merino wool socks more often than they need to be washed? They don't stink easily so what's to wash ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My clothes don't need to be washed more than once a month. My underwear take up very little space. I don't wash my clothes after just one wear (except underoos), unless they're visibly dirty. It takes about a month for me to put enough stuff into the hamper for it to be full. [My husband's pile up quicker so he does our laundry about once every 2 or so weeks. If it was just my stuff, he could easily let it pile up for a month.]
