Half of Americans do not change their underwear daily

A new study has found that half of Americans don’t change their underwear every day.

The strange statistics were revealed by underwear maker Tommy John in their survey of 1000 Americans.

The official report found that 45 percent wore the same pair of underwear for two days or longer. The study also found that 13 percent had worn the same pair for a week or more.

“Basic hygiene tells us that we should change our underwear every day, or at least wash them after every wear.” This is the advice on the Tommy John website.

The survey found that it is mainly men who are ones avoiding changing their underwear. The survey found men are 2.5 times as likely as women to wear their underwear for a week or more. Officially that is 20 percent of men versus 8 percent of women.

Tommy John also found people are loyal to their underwear, with 46 percent of those surveyed saying they owned the same pair of underwear for at least one year.
