  1. I agree completely with this. I find though that I have to wash shirts more often now that I have switched from antiperspirant to deodorant. Also, if you have white clothes, it’s advisable to clean them as soon as possible after washing them so that your body oils don’t have time to discolor them. I think when you weigh the impact of washing/soaking a light-colored shirt vs. the impact of throwing a shirt out because of ugly armpit stains that washing wins. What do you think?

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It



According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
