The next big clothing trend: stuff you almost never have to wash…

It’s about time that a fashion trend came around to serve us SUPER lazy people.

According to “Fast Company”, the next big trend in clothing could be . . . stuff you almost never have to WASH.

Some companies have started using new fibers and treatments to make clothes that won’t STINK even after you wear them for weeks or months between washes.

And they aren’t just a big win for those of us who hate doing laundry . . . they’re a big win for the environment.

Washing machines are responsible for 17% of the water we use in our homes, and a quarter of the carbon footprint of every piece of clothing comes from cleaning it.

One brand that makes a seaweed fiber t-shirt says you’ll save almost 800 gallons of water by not having to wash it as often as you’d wash a regular t-shirt.

One in three adults still sleep with their childhood teddy bear or blanket…

If you still sleep with your teddy bear and you’re afraid it’s a sign that you’re stuck in a state of childhood limbo . . . nope.  It just means you’re normal.

According to a new survey, one out of THREE adults say they still sleep with a “comfort object” from their childhood.

That includes things like stuffed animals, a blanket, or a special pillow.

The survey also found 41% of people have a nighttime ritual, including things like listening to music . . . watching a specific movie or TV show . . . reading a book . . . or eating a snack.

And one out of four people have a strange TRICK they use to try to fall asleep, including things like thinking about unicorns . . . reading history books . . . and putting their legs up on the wall.

A study proves you do have a consistent “type” in dating…

It turns out we really do have a “type” when we’re dating.  Even if that type is “anyone who’s willing to date me.”

Researchers at the University of Toronto just finished up a nine-year study where they found people really do have a “type” they look for . . . and, basically, they always gravitate toward people with the same major personality traits.

The study didn’t look at whether people also have a physical type . . . it was just looking at personalities.

So what does this mean?  Well, it means your next boyfriend or girlfriend is probably going to have a lot in common with your current one.

But it also means that in the future, dating apps could do an even better job at matching you up with people based on who you’ve dated in the past.
