According to the Daily Mail, most women spend £2,700 a year on bras but only wash them six times a year.
A spokesman said: ‘The extra dirt is clearly not good for the wearer’s skin as bras are fitted snug to the chest and this build up of bacteria can create irritation.’
You don’t say.
Considering the amount of bright orange women around I’d be surprised if there weren’t some very smelly and tatty bras lying around.
I stick mine in the wash every week – and because I can’t be bothered hand washing them they probably do die a bit quicker because underwires + washing machines aren’t the best combination. I also have about 30 bras anyway and once they get saggy, they go in the bin.
What about you?
