Let’s talk about something that lots of us don’t often talk about — how to take care of your underwear the right way so that it lasts as long as possible. Yes, it requires special attention, and there are specific ways you can wash your undergarments to get them completely clean and extend their lifespan.

Separate your laundry correctly

Take some time to sort out your underwear and separate it from the rest of the clothes you plan to wash, as they generally should be washed at different temperatures. Then sort your underwear by colour: dark go with dark, coloured go with coloured, and white go with white.

Choose a delicate detergent

Go for a detergent that’s labeled as delicate or gentle and not chemical; this will do your intimates and you many favours. They are generally free of harsh chemicals like bleach, phosphates, or enzymes that can damage and break down certain fabrics but still get the job done.

Choose the right temperature

Higher temperatures do a much better job of killing bacteria and germs in the washing machine, so go for 60°C to wash your underwear. If your underwear is made from a delicate fabric, opt for 40°C.

Other tips and tricks

Make sure to check the care label before washing and get to know how to best treat the fabric. For taking care of stains, opt for a gel stain removal version as it absorbs very effectively and is more gentle. Pre-treat your garment by applying special stain removal on the stain only, and off it goes in the wash. Air dry your underwear to keep its shape, colour, and elasticity. An added bonus is that it’s better for the planet and your electricity bill.
