Depends on the material. Wool tops I generally wear at least a month--every day--before washing.
Cotten I stink up after only minutes.

I by contrast have a job which requires me to wear a suit and a crisp shirt and a clean tie free from eggstains and is one of the reasons I like both the job and living here.
In easy reach of restaurants, art galleries , concert halls, and a number of Premier League football grounds.
I used to live a hippy life , but I dropped out. You soon start to get used to the simple, good things in life once you abandon a craving for austerity.

It sounds like purest hell.
But I suspect you would not like my life either. So its as well you are there and I am here.

There are now some steamers that do a pretty good job of ironing without any pressing.

As a landlord, I have seen it all. In regard to laundry, here are a couple of extreme examples I have witnessed:

A man wore the same shirt and pants everyday, for years. One day when he had to move-out to go to a nursing home, he left some furniture and clothes in his unit. When I opened the closet, I couldn't believe it. Inside were over a hundred suits, nice shirts, pants, and other clothes. Some were still in their original plastic packing. Yet he wore the same dirty shirt and pants everyday for years.

The other extreme:

This couple with no kids called me that their dryer was broken. It was Sunday afternoon, so I couldn't get an appliance company out to deliver a new one until the next day, about 24 hours later. This couple showed me their laundry pile. It was about 4 feet high. I said, "all of that is just from one day without a dryer?" They replied in the affirmative. Apparently they shower about 3 times a day, each use clean towels after each wash, change their clothes more than once a day and wash after each time.

I wanted to say that there has got to be a 'middle way' but kept silent.

Do you think that maybe the other extreme was running a laundry business?

I suspect that your tenants are unusually fortunate in their landlord David..

In Cleveland Oh in the summer if you look outside you need to wash your shirt :)
