"I thought everyone did": Woman shocks followers after revealing how often she changes pyjamas
How often do you change your pyjamas?
A woman has caused quite the debate online after revealing how often she changes her pajamas.
The TikTok user expressed her shock when she discovered that people don't change their pajamas every day.
"Just found out through this trend most people don't change their pyjamas every night.
"Jammies are like underwear. They need to be changed every night, no?" she said.
We suddenly feel very gross...
We're not the only ones who were surprised by the video.
One user wrote: "Most people do not wear different pyjamas every single night, to be honest. I ain't about to waste time and money on laundry when all I do is sleep in them for a few hours."
"This explains why I feel like I do more washing than 90% of people. Clean pjs every night. I thought everyone did," another said.
"I'm with you on this. Shocked and scared at how many people admit to not changing them for a week," said another.
An expert has confirmed how often we should change our pyjamas so before you start doing extra loads of laundry, read on.
They told RealSimple: "Unless you spill a midnight snack on them, sweat heavily, or wear them all day long, pyjamas can usually be worn a few nights in a row before they need to be washed."
"If you wear your pajamas to bed and change out of them in the morning, you can probably get away with a couple of wears before naturally occurring body oils, perspiration, and bacteria begin to build up in the fabric, all of which can lead to odor.
"It's worth noting that if you’re wearing them all day, you’ll want to wash them after each wear.”
We're now considering topping up on our pyjama collection on our next trip to Penneys.
