WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s the middle of the week, you want to get out of the office but there’s a couple of hours still to get through. And then there’s Thursday and Friday to deal with.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: Jeans. We all have them, we all wear them. But there’s a difference in how often we clean them, apparently. Some say after every wear, some say every month. What do you think?
