Underwear Care 101: How to Keep Your Undergarments Looking New

Investing in high-quality men's underwear is a great step toward ensuring comfort and style in your daily life. However, keeping your undergarments looking new requires proper care and maintenance. Here's a comprehensive guide to help you maintain your Box Menswear underwear in top condition, extending their lifespan and keeping them as fresh as the day you bought them.

1. Read the Care Label

Every piece of underwear comes with a care label that provides specific instructions for washing and drying. These guidelines are tailored to the fabric and construction of the garment, ensuring the best care. Always check the care label before proceeding with any washing.Typically this will be washing at 30°, but we always say to check the care label each time. You want your super sexy jocks to last don’t you?

2. Sort by Colour and Fabric

Just like with regular laundry, sorting your underwear by colour and fabric type is essential. Wash dark colours together to prevent bleeding onto lighter fabrics, and keep delicate fabrics like silk or lace separate from sturdier materials like cotton or synthetic blends.

3. Use a Gentle Detergent and Opt for a Gentle Cycle

Choose a mild, liquid detergent to wash your underwear. Harsh detergents can break down fibres and cause fading or damage over time. Avoid bleach or fabric softeners, as these can be too harsh for delicate materials and elastic bands. When using a washing machine, select the gentle or delicate cycle. This setting uses slower spin speeds and reduced agitation, which is kinder to your undergarments and helps preserve their shape and elasticity.



4. Hand Wash When Necessary

For particularly delicate Box underwear such as sultry thongs and sexy mesh, hand washing is the safest method. Fill a basin with cold water and a small amount of gentle detergent. Gently agitate the water with your hands, let the underwear soak for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly with cold water.

6. Use a Mesh Laundry Bag

If you prefer machine washing, placing your underwear in a mesh laundry bag can provide an extra layer of protection. This helps prevent snagging, tangling, and stretching during the wash cycle. There’s no safer way to keep your mesh collection safe than using a mesh laundry bag

7. Avoid the Dryer

Heat can damage elastic bands and weaken fabric fibres, leading to premature wear. Instead of using a dryer, lay your underwear flat on a clean, dry towel and roll it up to remove excess water. Then, lay the garments flat or hang them to air dry in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight.

8. Store Properly

Proper storage is also key to maintaining your underwear. Fold your underwear neatly and store them in a drawer or designated space to prevent stretching and distortion. Avoid overcrowding, which can cause unnecessary wear and tear. Carry a spare pair for you to get changed after gym workouts in the compact and stylish holdall
