How often should you wash your bra?
You should wash your bra after 2 or 3 wears, or once every 1 or 2 weeks if you’re not wearing it every day. Wash your jeans as rarely as possible, unless you’re going for the distressed look. Wash sweaters as often as needed, but be careful not to stretch or shrink them as they dry.
How often should you change your sheets?

How long should I wash my clothes in the washing machine?
That depends on your washing machine’s settings. Most washers need 32 to 38 minutes to clean your clothes, though some allow you to purchase an extra-long wash and/or rinse cycle. Alternatively, some washers are extremely efficient and give you the option to wash your clothes under 30 minutes.
