Why you shouldn't wear the same clothes two days in a row: it's not just about cleanliness
There are many folk signs and superstitions associated with clothes. For example, it is believed that you should not hang clothes on the back of a chair - this can bring hardship and lack of money to your home. And you shouldn't wash clothes after sunset - this will lead to difficulties and illness.
People say that you should not wear the same clothes for two days in a row. OBOZREVATEL figured out what this sign means.
Higher aristocratic circles have long believed that going out twice in a row in the same outfit is a bad manners sign of bad manners and even ill-manneredness. In those days, there was no daily showering habit, so it was not about personal hygiene at all.
Superstitious people believe that clothes "absorb" a person's energy. And they add that if you wear the same thing for several days in a row, all the negative from the previous day will be transferred to the next. However, people in certain professions have to wear work uniforms every day, and their success hardly depends on the dress code. So the theory of negative energy doesn't really work here.
Interestingly, there is another version. Many people have so-called "lucky" clothes. They choose it for important meetings, negotiations or exams. Many people see nothing wrong with wearing "lucky things" for several days in a row, believing that they really bring good luck.
In the modern world, this sign has taken on a new meaning due to hygienic aspects. Even the most persistent perfumes and antiperspirants will not get rid of the smell of sweat. Only regular washing can give you real freshness.
By the way, it is said that clothes and shoes should not be given away for free. According to the belief, this way you can bring trouble both on yourself and on the person to whom you are giving something. Read the article to find out what else you shouldn't give your loved ones.
