The garments I wear now are already sticking to my skin and soaked through with sweat and grime in several places. Both my younger sisters would love a chance to splash around in the old plastic tub we found in the rubbage heap awhile back, washing the filth and grime away and getting rid of that
all-persistent stink that clings to our clothes.
