    There's nothing like a funeral to make you feel alive

    I wear my regular everyday clothes. I usually even wear my wedge sandals since I want to practice in what I usually wear. What I wear usually is based on my mood for the day - shorts, jeans, sundresses whatever, but always from the closet not the hamper.

    they are all too kind to say "Dude, you smell like a funeral director".

    I dress for the occasion, with clean clothes.

    I'm a little OCD, so I have my closet divided up by general activity.

    Play (t-shirts, jeans/shorts), casual, work, grubby (clean but stained from dirty work, oil changes, etc).

    You get the idea... The only time I put on dirty clothes is if I had to take a break in the action and get cleaned up (hunting, fishing, yard work, etc). I may throw on whatever I was wearing already, depending on what it is, where I'm at with it, or how long it's been.

    Yes, and shine my shoes. I also wash my hair and do my nails. And my outfits are always color-coordinated. Thanks for asking!

    Is this like one of those "how do you go to the bathroom?" threads? I mean, really, do you need to ask these questions?

    Though, going through the whole thread did give me a couple of laughs

    I usually go undercover wearing Birkenstock sandals, a "Save the Whales" teeshirt & smelling of Patchouli oil. Peace Brother.

    If I'm not shooting on my land, I cross dress to protect my identity. I'm amazed at how well I can shoot in heels!

    That having been said - Since I always wear 100% Cotton all the time and don't like to use CLOROX unless it's absolutely necessary OXICLEAN works really well for getting out traces of powder and smoke residue especially when shooting Black Powder firearms.

    I use OXICLEAN and unscented laundry detergent. And...yes, even though I am married I wash my own clothes.

    I have a Wife and Life Partner & not a live-in Washer Woman.

    CLOROX really shortens the life of Cotton clothing so I try not to use it even on plain white T-Shirts. Which is what I wear most of the time.
