Are you a spring cleaner, only cleaning certain things once a year? That may be perfectly fine for many household items, but you may be giving some items the shrift; they may need more frequent cleanings than you realize! However, if you are super industrious with your cleaning, you may also be on the wrong track; some items need cleaning much less frequently than what we’ve been told. It can get pretty confusing! We often don’t know how to treat our personal items or clothes and end up living with germs or ruining our precious belongings. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide for how often everyday objects may or may not need scrubbing.
Certain clothing needs to be washed every single time you wear it (we’re looking at you, underwear!). Jeans, however, are not one of those items that need to be tossed into the washer on a daily basis. For one thing, they’re pants, which don’t tend to get dirty as quickly as other items of clothing.
For another, they are thick and hard-wearing material, so they don’t absorb dirt as quickly as other fabrics. Washing them too frequently will cause them to fade sooner and stress the material more rapidly. That’s why you only need to wash your denim about once every six weeks. If they start to stink before they are dirty, you can put them in the freezer overnight to remove the odor.
