Study Finds That 45% of Americans Wear Underwear for 2 Days or Longer
Well, this is disturbing to know, a new study just came out that says that 45% of American wear the same underwear for 2 days or longer! Underwear company Tommy John conducted the survey with 1,000 men and women to find out how long they wear their underwear.
Fox8.com reported that over half of the participants said they had worn the same pair for two days or more, while 13% said they had worn the same pair for a week or more. And get this, 85% of Americans don’t know how long they’ve owned their oldest pair of underwear. Tommy John suggests that you should replace your old underwear with news ones every 6 months to a year. Now I have to admit, I can't recall the last time I bought a new pair of underwear so I guess I'm part of the 85% but I never wear the same one 2 days in a row, gross!
The study goes on to find that if you keep your underwear longer than a year it can lead to urinary tract infections, yeast infections, skin infections, and bacterial infections. So, now I will have to go do some clothes shopping this weekend!
