A recent study shows that only 78 percent of men in the UK change their undies every morning, while 95 percent of women put on a fresh pair. The study also found that women are more than twice as likely to do their laundry while living alone, and of men who are a part of a domestic relationship, only 19 percent do their own laundry. Richard Caines, senior consumer analyst at Mintel, says “There is a distinct whiff of laziness among men in the UK today when it comes to underwear.”

 “If men are involved with laundry, it is most likely to be as part of a shared responsibility, but over time their level of involvement has been increasing. A generational shift is being seen, with men under 55 significantly more likely to share some responsibility for laundry tasks.”  —-
