    I dont always change my socks every day. If I've got up, put a fresh pair on and just slobbed about on the sofa all day, I see nothing wrong in wearing them again the next day. Different story if I've been out and about walking in them and cramped up in trainers, especially on hot days. My feet have always been free of perspiration though.

    I'm daily but mainly because I cycle to work in them, walk round the office with no shoes on and then cycle home. At home I sit down barefoot.

    I had a mate who used to change his socks every hour at work :eek:
    He would take his shoes off and his socks would be completely soaked in sweat but he didn't smell. His GP reckoned it was all to do with the stress he was going through with a marriage breakup.

    What the hell is the pancake option? Never heard that one.

    I'll admit there have been times a pair of socks has stretched over in to the next day, but normally daily for me.

    Assuming my feet haven't had a hard day.. a pair of socks lasts 3 days or there abouts. Been like that for 20 years, no feet problems, ever. None of my shoes/trainers/walking boots/Wellies remotely smell.

    If I've been walking/cycling/running/exercise then they're in the basket straight after.

    I rarely sweat unless I'm exercising.

    Washing clothes after one use if they're still clean/free of bo is ridiculous.

    Surely the only answer is 'whenever I shower'?

    A combination of turning them inside out and swapping feet sees me four days.

    I change mine once a day, twice if I'm hitting the gym. Three times a lady.

    Surely after? :eek:

    Daily but there is the odd occasion where I find myself staying at a friends after a night out where I won't change, rock n roll...
