Yes, this is an interesting question, as I always wondered what other people do with their clothes that aren't quite ready to be washed yet. We have an old rocking chair in the bedroom and all our day to day clothes go on that. Sometimes I will leave a cardigan draped around the back of my dining chair, in case it gets a bit chilly, or I need to wear it outside. It is a big old chunky woollen cardi. It has been washed so many times, so is a bit out of shape, and not much of a fashion statement, but lovely and comfy.
Anything that has been worn to bed, is washed the next day.
Clothes that I wear during the day....get hung on a very long rail in our bathroom to air-out, and then hung up back in the wardrobe, after 24 hrs of airing. Only with Pants, or a good top of mine.
Anything like his t-shirts are washed, once worn.Or a top of mine worn at home etc are all only worn once.
I tend to leave my new clothes still in their carry bags in my wardrobe, I need to go through my wardrobe to make some space.As for the rest that I,m wearing their on clothes hangers, hanging on the door knobs.
My clean house clothes are stored folded in a drawer so if I want to wear them again I place them either folded or draped on a chair in my bedroom. My going out clothes hang in the wardrobe and if I have only worn a garment for a few hours or I consider it clean enough, I put it on a hanger and leave it to air for a day or so before returning to wardrobe. I use either the wardrobe doorknobs or a rail in my laundry to air these clothes before returning to wardrobe. Due to limited storage my off season clothes are stored in bags. I like to put them on hangers and air them on the clothesline on my verandah for a few days when it is time to change over.
My Grandmother used to call it "washing the life out clothes" , if they were washed unnecessarily
Of course any underwear or dirty clothes go straight into my dirty clothes basket until there are sufficient items to warrant a load in the machine.
On a pile between 2 chest-a-drawers! My dresses that I wear all year around, are on the back of my bedroom door, but only 3 or 4 at a time. I'll wear them 3/4 times when I go out, then they go into the wash, & I'll get out 3 or 4 other dresses I haven't worn for a while.
