Men wear dirty underwear, new survey shows
Men have no problem wearing dirty underwear, a new survey has found.

According to research conducted by Clorox, almost 50 per cent of men questioned said they are unperturbed by wearing garments many times before washing them and admitted to relying on the "sniff test" to determine if a item needs to be cleaned.

The survey, which questioned 1,200 adults, revealed that men tend to wear undies twice, with 12 per cent of men saying they stretch out the usage to three times.

Some 41 per cent of men surveyed said they share the laundry responsibilities with their partners, while just 29 per cent of women questioned said their partners help out with the washing duties.

Dr Mary Gagliardi, a scientist at Clorox, said: "For some men, doing laundry used to be scarier than seeing a 99 mile-per-hour fastball come in high and tight.
"But with some expert coaching and the right playbook anyone can be helping to strike out stains."

According to scientists at the Ifakara Health Institute in Tanzania, smelly sock can be an effective way to trap mosquitoes.
