Food / snot / barf on your clothes... when to worry?

I have a 1 year old and sometimes a bit of food or snot and the occasional spit up ends up on my clothing. Pureed squash, green beans, fruit cup... the usual. The spit up is rare these days and is usually just a mix of milk and stomach acid. If it's bad I'll change but if it's just a little why bother. Okay, and sometimes maybe I spill myself but it's usually a result of picking up a filthy child after he eats and getting him cleaned up. We're not talking a lot, maybe spots the size of a quarter.

I work at home, and thus... in my pajamas most of the day. I only have 2 pairs of pajamas and wash them about every 2 weeks... so figure a week in each without washing. Say I wear them a good 18-20 hours a day including sleeping.

The food on them is obviously dried up after an hour or so and only bothersome if it's on the knee or something where I feel it a lot.

Question is... how long should food-tainted clothing be worn before it becomes a health risk? Second question is, would you like to borrow my pj's?

Hmm.. I'm thinking no more than 8 hrs? You hug your kids in the morning and they leave a little reminder.. you notice it either right away or later that day and when you get home you toss it in the laundry pile.
As for when it becomes unhealthy? I have no idea.

Yeah, I'm not interested in social norms or when it is in fashion. I just want to know when it will present a measurable effect on one's health. Maybe I should make a movie about it. I'd last longer than that Supersize guy. I could wear a supersize and live longer than he could eating it.

Let me tell you man, if you wear the same clothes for a week without washing them, you've got bigger issues than a little bodily fluid on them.

Nah, it's cool Thor. All new parents are excused from such things. You go ahead and wear your snot and greenbean covered clothes proudly. And I only want your pjs if you're still in them.

God knows I wished that was not a true story, but I'm thankful that I could tell it to you today.

Better now?

That would be awesome. I'd only have to do laundry once every 3 months!

I'd be more concerned with the various food/snot/barf crunchies that undoubtedly detach themselves from your soiled pajamas while you sleep every night!

Is there a foul odor eminating from your bed area?

If you have a baby around, you really ought to change clothes more often.

I'm surprised you can go two weeks with the same pajamas. I only wear mine while I'm relaxing/sleeping, and they start to get a little stinky after several days, especially the shirts.

It's just the PJ bottoms and they don't smell. I wear a different T-shirt every day, sometimes multiple.
