    I have worn the same cloths , so that you don't have to wash them again..

    Which on is right and more practical ? I want to tell my mom that..

    1) I have worn the same cloths so that you don't have to wash them.
    2) I have worn the same cloths so you don't need to wash them again.

    i am not sure about the use of worn. Is it right ? or there is better way to say it.

    "I am wearing the same clothes, so you don't have to wash them."

    I put on the same clothes this morning so that you wouldn't have/need to wash them.


    Please use capital letters to begin a sentence and for the first person pronoun I.

    Re: I have worn the same cloths , so that you don't have to wash them again..

    I wore the same clothes today so you wouldn't have to wash them.

    Monday you wear the clothes.
    Tuesday you wear the same clothes.
    Tuesday night you mom asks where all your laundry is. You say "I wore the same clothes today that I wore yesterday so you wouldn't have to wash them."


    (Personally, I'd rather wash my kids' clothes than have them wear them two days in a row.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Personally, I'd rather my kids washed their own clothes.

    You may say I'm a dreamer (Lennon).
