To wash or not to wash. That is the question.

Me – “How long do you think I can get away with wearing these pajamas without washing them?”

I was referring to my footie pajamas.

Dad – “They’re going to get stinky.”

Me – “I wear clothes underneath them.  It’s like a big jacket and we don’t wash jackets.”

I can rationalize anything.

Today I’m wearing the same outfit I wore for the past three days.

I don’t understand what the big deal is.  If something still smells clean, why wash it?  Americans are all a bunch of self-righteous judgmental obsessive compulsives.

  1. I completely agree! We Dutch people (at least the ones I know) don’t wash as much as many Americans do. Underpants, socks and bras: yeah: put on clean ones every day. As for the rest: wash them as they get dirty.
    It is a big contribution to ecology, too. It saves tons of water and laundry powder, plus the energy of running a machine+the wear and tear of your clothes as they tumble around in your machine.
    Go, Melanie, go!

    • I’m always striving to see the bigger picture. I hate to say it about my own country but our perspectives can be a bit narrow. I was grumpy when I wrote this post.
