Most men have been wearing the same style of underwear since high school. Why? Habit? Don’t care to change?
This tips will successfully guide you on how to take good care of your underwears
Question #1 – How Often Should You Wash Your Underwear?
Simple answer – when it’s dirty. During physical activity or a strenuous gym session, your underwear bears the brunt of your sweat. The easiest system is to change after a heavy session of perspiring activity or once daily.
Sweaty underwear is not attractive or comfortable. Don’t even think about subjecting them to a sniff test to check if they smell. Practice good hygiene and wash your underpants after each wear
Question #2 – How Many Pairs Of Underwear Should A Man Own?
A sensible approach is to have a 3 week supply of around 20 pairs of underwear. Having more presents closet-space issues and will prove to be an expensive proposition. You need at least 14 pairs if you launder your clothes once a week. A pair for each day of the week and backups for exercise or travel.
If you indulge in frequent physical activity, consider purchasing a few extra pairs. Your underwear needs to breathe and stretch. Quality underwear provides ample ventilation. The fabric won’t warp easily, ensuring a comfortable fit for many months, if not years.
Woolens and thermals are suitable for colder climates, while cotton is preferable for warm climates. Spandex is the best choice for underwear for exercise or physical activity over a long period of time.
Question #3 – When Should A Man Throw Away His Underwear?
Don’t hold on to your underwear until they shred in the washing machine. As a rule of thumb, men should replace their underwear at least once a year. Start by disposing of all the faded, jaded and saggy underwear in your wardrobe.
This is an item of clothing you should never donate. Any underwear that has visible holes and/or stains has got to go. When the band loses elasticity, relegate the underwear to the bin. When it no longer fits due to weight loss or gain, don’t hold on to the hope that you will return to your original body shape. The waistband is susceptible to holes because this part of the underwear is attached separately, after the bottom half is constructed.
A waistband with a double or triple stitch is preferred. Look for reinforced stitching, it significantly extends the life of your underwear.
How Do I Prevent Jock Itch?
Jock itch is the combination of moisture collection, skin rubbing, and a possible bacterial infection from failing to maintain cleanliness in a particular area.
• Avoid tight underwear. Avoid wearing underwear that rubs your crotch.
• Wear sweat-wicking underwear. Choose underwear that wicks away the moisture so it isn’t settling into your skin.
• Wear specialty underwear that prevents rubbing. Opt for a specialty underwear that helps keep your package separate from your body to prevent excessive rubbing.
• Wash your underwear frequently. Wash your underwear after every wear.
