A woman has sparked a debate on social media after revealing how often her friend washes her bra.

Taking to TikTok to share the revelation, Desyr - who users the handle @desyr.reviews on the platform - let slip that her friend confessed to only washing her bras once a year.

"My friend - I'm not gonna name any names - but my friend once told the group chat that she washes her bra once a year," the TikToker says in the video, adding: "I'm now just curious, like, how often does everyone wash their bras? Like, I need to know what the kind of standard is amongst women everywhere. What's the average? What's the most common bra-washing duration? Because apparently, we are not all the same."

Check out the video below:

Now, I personally don't own any bras - but even I raised an eyebrow when I heard this, and the comments section certainly reflected my surprise.

As of this writing, the video has amassed more than 800 comments from TikTok users after the video received over 190,000 views. And - perhaps as expected - opinions differed greatly.

There were many people who believed a bra should be washed after every use.

Other TikTokers were a little more lenient with their laundry habits, with some people washing their bras after a few days, and others waiting several weeks to wash their bras:

Other social media users agreed that it all depending on the weather, and that bras require more washes on those particularly hotter and sweatier days:

So there you have it - although it sounds like something we'd all agree on, it turns out bras come with their own rules for each person.

In other news, a woman has recently revealed that she never washes her sheets or her mattress despite them being 100 years old.

Now, the average person spends approximately 56 hours a week in bed, so keeping your place of rest clean is essential to avoid a build-up of bacteria and dust mites.

According to the  Good Housekeeping Institute, you should be changing your sheets at least once every two weeks and if you suffer from night sweats or allergies, it's best to up it to once a week just to avoid any harmful triggers.

While a lot of us can't even bear the thought of sleeping in a dirty bed, one woman has recently admitted that she has never washed her sheets or changed her mattress for a new one despite it being around for a century.

Meet Cornelia Bayley, a British woman who lives in a 17th-century manor in Flintshire, north Wales.

Bayley initially bought the 10-bedroom house called Plas Teg back in 1985 and spent a big portion of her life keeping it standing. The 82-year-old has spent thousands and thousands of dollars on upkeep, though her bedding has never really gotten that type of attention.

As per the Daily Mail, Bayley admitted to only cleaning the house once or twice since she acquired it, saying: "200 years ago, there would be 20 or 30 people looking after the house. Now there is just me and the cat."

While appearing on Channel 4's Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners, she revealed that she had never felt the need to wash her bedding or change the mattress, which was 100 years old.

The hosts of the show examined her manor, clearly horrified at the dirt and grime that had piled up over the years.

When asked when the bedding had last been washed, Bayley replied: "Never."

The hosts followed up by asking about the mattress to which she replied: "It could be 100 years old, or something. You know, this is how people used to live years ago – and I still live like that."
