A woman has sparked a heated debate about personal hygiene after revealing she doesn’t wash her pajamas after every wear.
Allison Delperdang from Iowa kicked off discussions of personal nature as she asked her TikTok followers how often they wear their PJs before washing them.
“I need to know if people wear pajamas multiple nights in a row,” the young woman captioned her post.
In the video, Allison also admitted that she had worn her PJs for three nights before finally throwing them in the laundry basket.
“When I was younger, my parents always made us wear pajamas multiple nights in a row because they weren’t dirty – and I still do that as an adult,” she admitted.
“So I need to know if as adults we’re still doing that or should I be literally making dirty clothes every single night. Are we wearing pajamas multiple nights? What’s the situation?”
Her video quickly went viral with hundreds of people weighing in on the matter and suggesting pajamas should be washed after every use to “prevent skin problems” and “stay clean.”
“I change towel and pajamas every night. That was something mom made me do as a kid. Not everyone does that?” one baffled viewer pondered.
“A fresh one every night as I live on a tropical island with a hot and humid climate so lots of sweating,” another admitted.
A third said: “Fresh set each night over here… I’m 48 isn’t that what we’re supposed to be doing?”
Meanwhile, thousands of people defended the reuse of worn PJs and insisted there was nothing wrong with wearing the same set of clothes for several nights in a row.
“Saving the environment and your clothes! If it’s not dirty/smelly then why wash it? I wear mine for a week in winter!” someone wrote.
“I wear it till I feel like it’s dirty or I have a rough night of sweating,” another added.
A third joked: “Wait. There’s people that DON’T wear their pjs multiple nights in a row????”
