One in 10 men reuse dirty socks

Many men are guilty of wearing the same socks more than once a week without washing them, according to a survey.

New research by Voucher Codes Pro into the fashion habits of Britons reveals 11% of men reuse their socks.

As many as 44% wear the same underpants on multiple days in a row without putting them in the wash; while a further 23% do the same with jeans; 17% with smart shirts, and 14% with casual t-shirts.

Some 88% of women, on the other hand, wear the same bras on a daily basis instead of washing them. Another 21% do the same with tops, 18% with leggings, 12% with dresses, and 9% with jeans.

The survey also shows that 37% of men alternate between the same four outfits each week - while 21% switch between as many as six.

Up to 46% of women alternate between six outfits on a weekly basis, plus 32% switch between 10.

Voucher Codes Pro quizzed 2,461 Britons aged 18 and over from around the UK about their fashion habits and daily outfits.
