Underwear... how long do people wear them???

ARGENTINA-TOURISM-SAN TELMO

If you can't even manage to change your underwear on a daily basis, what basic life skills CAN you handle?

According to a new survey, almost half of Americans say they've worn the same pair of underwear for two days or longer.

And 13% of people have worn the same pair of underwear for more than a WEEK. Men are two-and-a-half times more likely to have done that than women.

There's more. Most of us keep our underwear in rotation way longer than we should for hygienic purposes. Some experts say you should throw away your underwear every year to prevent a buildup of bacteria like E. coli. 

But only 16% of people say their oldest pair of underwear is less than a year old.
