Summer Science: Clothes Keep You Cool, More Or Less

Summer Science: Clothes Keep You Cool, More Or Less
Heard on Morning Edition | Joe Palca

HOW TO MAKE YOUR JEANS LAST LONGER 2.0

…”The truth of the matter is that jeans do not need to be washed after every wear. Because denim material is thicker than most, it’s able to shake off many of the daily grime we rub on throughout the day.
