Thanks! But, that's only about 2/3 of it. Most of my stuff is either pre-1965 (oldest piece is a 1932 cardboard poster 28"x24" of Londos vs. Speers) or WWE Attitude Era that my son and I collected in the late '90s up to 2005.

Here's a pic of something you might like - A 14"x24" cardboard poster advertising a match between Sammartino and George the Animal Steele. It is signed by both Sammartino and Steele!

There is a current movement towards water only bath/shower
The epidermis is alive with good and bad bacteria
Like your gut
The good bacteria are there for a reason
This is definately an evolving area

The toxins in fabrics are getting more attention
All my teflon treated clothes are in the trash

This topic reminds me of the story of the Japanese invention of 6-Day Underwear.
Directions:

Six-day underwear has three leg holes.

1. Wear for day one
2. Rotate using the unused leg hole and wear for day two
3. Rotate in the same direction by one leg hole and wear for day three
4. Turn underwear inside out
5. Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 for days four, five, and six.

I think this was the result of a Japanese design contest in the 1980s.

My husband taught me to wash it all together. If I have something like new jeans they get washed on their own for a while, and I will use color catchers if any question.

I very seldom use bleach and only on towels. I was taught in food service class that hot or cold water inactivates bleach, you must use warm water only, and detergent also inactivates it too. You get "that nice bleach smell" but no effective cleaning.

What I generally do with the towels is run a load with detergent and non chlorine bleach, and then add some vinegar on the last rinse. That gets the suds out of the towels.

A lot of women wash their bras and underwear in very hot water, which is unnecessary and destroys the elastic. I use my "cool lights" setting for just about everything and that works fine.

Especially with blood stains, you are going to see if it comes out, and it does.

I am pretty cheap with many things in my life - I am the generic queen, but I always use Tide for laundry. You wouldn't believe what my husband can do to a tshirt. I am always so impressed when I pull them out at the end of the cycle and they're perfect again.

With all these cats, I have to lint-brush my sheets before I launder them.

I want everyone to know that since the start of this thread, I've begun changing my underwear daily! I've lost 10 lbs, feel healthier and happy, people hold the door for me now, and the dog has even started to let me pet him again! Thanks!

Knew some miserly people in my life. Bathing was always a strange thing with them. As was clean clothes. Seldo bathed or showered, preferred a wet rag bath every few days.

Let me tell you what, you havent lived until you've been in the presence of someone with active boils and it's hot and sweaty in their house. Smelled like stage two decomposition. This old dudes boils got so out of hand he was hospitalized and doctor ordered to shower once a day. And just like that, the boils were banished.

Magine that.

My husband has neuropathy so bathing is literally painful to him. He has mobility issues too so getting in and out of the tub is a big deal. In his case I found some "adult disposable washcloths" in the incontinence aisle of Sam's Club and he uses those every day, then a conventional bath now and then. He has very dry hair so it never gets greasy. He is very sensitive about body odor and stays on top of it.

And the washcloths will be good in a no running water SHTF situation.

LOL. Ya think maybe some people have a set of washer and dryer or a washing machine and a line outside and clothes pins to dry their clothes. Yes..., i am an old guy. I still have clothes pins and a line if needed.

I have a +two week supply of underwear. I have no need to wear the same ones two days in a row and I don't want to.

Ya think a nice women wants to smell you and get intimate? I don't. And I want a squeaky clean women!

I have been near unbathed women in a restaurant. A table away and you could smell her. Or in an elevator next to a certain group of people. Disqusting......

I see ads for food for people in need and they are all dirty. Send them some soap!

Bathing and washing clothes is wasting water and electric causing un-repairable damage to the ecosystem of the planet. Or so the tree hugger across the street tells me.

Numbers don't match up. If 45% were wearing the same pair for two or more days in a row, and 20% of those men (8% women) for a week, then why aren't we hearing, reading or seeing about tons of crotch rotting people in the media?

Any doctor will tell you that this is a surefire way to get an infection? LOL Don't need to be a doctor to know that being filthy promotes bacteria and possible infection. May have well said "any doctors will tell you that taking a bath makes you cleaner and more healthy"

Also, how can underwear over a year old cause a greater chance of causing urinary tract infections? Are they interviewing people that don't wash and disinfect their clothes?

AP, years ago when I was very prone to UTI I was told to use a free and clear detergent - they didn't call them that back then, just "No colors or fragrance", that helped cut my infections dramatically. Not to be too graphic, but sexual activity for a woman can cause minor damage - standard detergents can get in that and cause worse irritation. Which can then lead to infection.

One of the things I did to prevent infection was change my detergent, I did some other things and figured out a way to stay healthy.

My guess is a buildup of standard detergent, "scent beads", fabric softeners, etc can build up in the fabric and cause serious irritation for a sexually active woman. That may be why they say to toss them.

I only ever had a serious problem with fabric softeners. I don't use them at all.

One thing I look for in underwear as a married woman is a good elastic band. I don't want one of those little thin bands, I want an inch or so of band. That way I know it will stay in place and behave because I can be pretty active.

Also i imagine people who reuse dirty underwear use dark colors so they dont get bleach disinfection.
