A new study by underwear company Tommy John says, 45% of Americans wear the same underwear for more than 2 days! Yuck!
That means one in every two Americans wears the same underwear consecutively… let that sink in.
Tommy John surveyed 2,000 men and women who did not hold back. The worst part of this survey is 13% say they wear the same underwear for a whole week, but men are more likely to do it than women.
A shocker that people may not know is underwear that’s more than a year-old hold about 10,000 living bacteria even after being washed.
The company says although this is a shocker for most people they are not surprised. The study provides ways to have better underwear hygiene.
One being, changing your underwear daily is a must!
Also, throwing away any underwear that has more than a year’s life span can reduce any infection that is trying to come your way.
