Washing your clothes too often is wasteful and bad for your clothes. Wash them less frequently to make your clothes last longer, and save time, money and natural resources.

How often do you do laundry? Maybe too often, says Wise Bread, which can be costly in many ways.
Not only is chronically over-washing clothing wasteful of precious resources, but it’s also costly in a number of other ways. There’s tons of detergent involved, utilities costs (water and electricity), time and energy, as well as the negative impact frequent washing has on the clothing itself. So, save yourself some money and lighten your load a bit, quite literally.
Wise Bread recommends inspecting your clothes first before you just toss them in the wash after one wear. Many clothes, especially sturdier fabrics, only need a good airing out to freshen them up for the next wear. You can also spot treat stains and skip the wash altogether for clothes that aren’t clearly dirty. For the rest of Wise Bread’s recommendations, check out the source link.
