Just when we thought "Downton Abbey" was the coolest show on TV -- Will and Kate are tuning in on the regular, after all -- Sophie McShera (Daisy) divulged a rather disgusting detail.

Apparently, there's a "no wash" policy in place so the costumes can keep their historic look.

“We do stink, as they don’t wash our costumes ... they have these weird patches, which are sewn into the armpits and which they wash separately,” McShera revealed to The Telegraph.

We can't imagine the Dowager Countess approves of this.
