The average man changes his pajamas every 13 nights. Women typically wait for 17 nights to throw their pajamas in the laundry. Most women have multiple pairs of pajamas and tend to forget how long they’ve been out for.

Wearing the same pajamas night after night may cause infections that can be hard to treat.
