Raise your hand if you are guilty about wearing the same bra over and over again one week straight.
Whether you deny it or not, there’s always a bra in your closet that you love wearing more than the other ones because it is comfy and you don’t want to wash it because you don’t want to wear anything else.
Doesn’t it make you wonder how often should you wear your bra before you should wash it? Should you really wait for it to smell and look filthy before you throw it into the laundry basket?
