Introducing Clothing That's Designed to Go Two Weeks Without a Wash
While traveling, few things are more annoying—yet ultimately necessary—than doing laundry. If you’re a frequent flyer who’s sick of scouting foreign cities for laundromats, Travel + Leisure reports that Indiegogo-funded clothing company Unbound Apparel has created clothing that can reportedly stay odor-free for up to two weeks.
Unbound Apparel offers men’s garments (although nothing says that women can't wear them, too), including a t-shirt, briefs, and socks. They’re made from special merino wool that the company advertises as odor-resistant and anti-bacterial. In the video below, Unbound Apparel founder Dan Demsky claims he’s worn the same shirt for 46 days in a row—along with the same socks and underwear—and everything still smells fresh and clean. (As of the video's filming, Demsky had washed the shirt zero times, the socks one time, and the underwear twice.)
Unbound Apparel’s garments are currently available for preorder on Indiegogo, where the collection's campaign has already surpassed its funding goal. Pricing starts at $50 for t-shirts, and orders are scheduled to ship around September.
And while this should go without saying, Unbound Apparel points out that while their clothing items might not need a wash, you still do. So make sure to hit up your hotel room’s shower, OK?
