Ladies, When Should You Wash Your Underwears?

Last week, I put up a post about women’s panties. A research conducted by someone on some women says that women now own an average of 34 panties. Eager to test this theory, I did the only thing I could think of doing: I counted all my panties and took a picture of them. All 41 of them.



The comment above is from the panty post, and it was left by Estella. She wanted to know when a woman should wash her panties.

I cannot say that I know when a woman should wash her panties. I can only tell you when I wash mine. Every morning. I know I have blogged about this somewhere before, but I just don’t remember where now. I wash my panties every morning because I am a creature of habit. I wash it and hang it on a hanger.



Yes, these panties are hanging on my window, and no, that's not where I hang them every morning. I only brought them here to take a better picture. I don't have a real camera, so I took this with my iPad which doesn't have flash. So I needed a well-lit place to take the picture. And errr, no, my neighbors were not looking - I think.

I attended one lone semester of boarding school in Nigeria where we washed our panties every morning just as we were about to take a shower, and since then, I have been unable to stop the habit. We also used to tie our sponge around our waist, so that way, it would get rinsed at the same time our body was getting rinsed. Up until I stopped using that kind of sponge – here in America – I still used to tie the sponge around my waist.

I don’t wash my panty in the morning because I think it is the right place and time to do it, but because I am used to it. Pendo made a point about the panties not being washed well because you’re in a hurry, but that doesn’t really happen to me. Like brushing my teeth, washing my panty has become a solid part of my routine, so it is part of my bathroom-allotted time.

The other point that Estelle raised is about the secretions women have. Yes, this is true; we do have secretions, and there are days that the panty has no secretion on it, and days that it is the exact opposite. Either way, I am so used to washing it in the morning (or whenever I’m taking a shower).

That said, another point raised by Estelle is the use of panty liners. I have had never, ever used panty liners before. I see them in stores, but I have always imagined that they’d feel more like tiny menstrual pads, and who wants to wear one of those all day, everyday?

Because Estelle brought it up, however, I went to the store and bought me a pack. I don’t know much – if anything – about panty liners, so I could not tell which one was the better brand or size to buy. I ended up with Kotex for two simple reasons: they’re cute! Okay, one simple reason.



These Kotex liners are very small and to my pleasant surprise, also very thin. There are other types of liners – thicker, longer – so you don’t have to use this brand or type alone. This will technically eliminate the issue of having secretions on your panty. And you can see that they're so think that they're even kind of transparent. You don't even feel them on your underwear. I've been bought. Can you tell?

One more thing, I will not pile my panties till they’re all gone before I wash them. Perhaps, part of the reason for this is my compulsion to wash them at the sink anyway, but that aside, that would be like me piling up my clothes till they are all completely dirty. I can’t. I do my laundry every weekend, unless there just isn’t the time. In which case, Monday would have to suffice.

About washing them (the panties) in a washer, it makes me feel like they are not completely washed. When I wash them with my hands, I can concentrate on the part that soaks up the secretions, but when I wash them in the washer, the washer doesn’t know where to concentrate. Believe me, I have barked instructions at it several times, but it's like talking to a big metal box.

There is only one time that I soak my panties, and that is when a little Ms. Flow accident occurs. If the accident is major and panty-threatening, then I will discard the panty. If it's not panty-threatening, I will soak it. It will do you well to not imagine this stained panty thing.

I don't know what is more disturbing, that someone would actually write about this, or that I am taking my time responding to it. WOW, some people really need to get a life and redefine boundaries. Who gives a phuk about when someone chooses to wash their intimates? Oh well, wateva!!!

ROTFLMAO at Kaymax (I am visualizing the look of disbelief on your face). You will find me disgusting because my undies get washed with the laundry. LOL. Sorry to offend your sensibilities. As for pantiliners my gyno actually told me that it is not necessary. Maybe just before or after ovulation if the woman is not comfortable. It is now a habit for me but from the medical angle there is really no need for daily pantyliners. Good cotton underwear and you will not have to worry obviously about stopping to change liners. I defintely understand why most people just choose to keep using liners. Maybe this should be in the health section. It would be more appropriate there



PLEASE MOVE TO THE HEALTH SECTION if there is one

To each his or her own, I just don't see the point of actually making it a thread, like, seriously, who really cares? Don't mind me, I was in a bad mood yesterday, got convicted at church, so perhaps I should've just let the thread go. LOL, I certainly don't care to share on this topic...LOL

No you must tell us. Do you handwash your drawers or do you throw them with the rest of the dirty clothes and contaminate them with whatever comtaminant must be on them LOL.

Never thought about the boarding house thing. Makes sense I guess. Most of cousins went to jail school I mean boarding schools. So am I to assume the you guys always have laundry detergent in the shower or do you step out and wash it in the sink LOL

Double ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!
I think it goes hand in hand with Nigerians feeling like it is unhealthy to wipe your bum with your right hand. I tire. I mean don't we wash out hands again after the bizness. I mean whose bathroom did not have the sign that read "cleanliness is next to Godliness" in their bathroom when they were growing up in Nigeria LOL. Washing your drawers in the morning vs washing it with the regular laundry falls under that category to me.

let me EEEwwwwwwww you guys out a likkle more! lololol. See what someone just posted today on that article:

HoneyDame Comment: Uhm! I have bever really given much thought to this.
However, there is never enough time for me in the mornings to wash my panties, so, most of the time, I toss it in a separate bucket so that later in d day, perhaps while I am doing number two, I can just multitask and wash it.
More often than not, I end up accummulating a few day's worth of panties, abt 3 or 4.
BUT they most certainly get washed, hand washed.
My mum usually soaks hers in a bucket of plain water in d mornings and washes it in d evenings before going to bed.
I have heard of the miracles called pantyliners too but never even tried trying it.
IMO, accummulating a month's use of panties for a lady is just extreme.
That's 30-31 pata nla gigan to wash?! Mba



errrrmmmm...wouldn't the shit smell 'contaminate' the obroshos? lolol

When I was in high school I did all those spongee thing around the waist and washed my panties immediately.... but as I grew older I like to soak it for some few minutes before entering the shower...would also add some laundry detergent so that any stuff can disolve then wash immediately as I come out of the bath top...... I only do this at night and as for the pantie liners I use it 2 or 3 days after Ms Pinky has gone........ Like sifu, I beleive with with good cotton pants you are good to go
