I kept a sun dress in my bounce bucket. Some of the trail angel  
houses have loaner clothing. I met a guy on the trail who carries a  
silk men's dress shirt and is hoping to find some silk pants  
eventually. He wears the silk shirt to bed and plans to wear it while  
he does laundry. I'd think you'd need to wash your sleeping clothes  
eventually, too, but I suppose you could do two loads (save money and  
share your load with others.) An alternative is to lower your  
standards and just jump in a creek once in a while or wash your  
clothing one item at a time in a sink or all items in the shower.  
Then walk your freshly "washed" clothing dry. I did that more than a  
few times.
