Here's Why You Need an Underwear Detergent
Did you know that there’s 1/10th of a gram of poop in the average pair of underwear? That means a huge chance of spreading E.coli, as per research. No, we don’t mean to scare you, rather we’re here to help you make the right choice for the TLC of your undies and invest in an underwear detergent that’s best suited for you.
While you’re used to seeing all your clothes getting washed together just like in a typical household, keep your undies washing sesh distinct with a designated detergent for lingerie. And yes, most of you rightfully wash your intimates separately because not only do they hug your vulvas and tooshies, but they’re also at the receiving end of bodily fluids such as discharge, spotting, blood, etc. (completely normal). This is why a little extra TLC can go a long way to help your undies live for longer by washing them with the best detergent for panties.
Why do I need a separate underwear detergent?
Regular detergents that are used to wash our clothes contain harmful chemicals, petrochemicals, parabens, etc. The residue left on our underwear from such toxic chemicals could cause itches, rashes, and infections in the intimate area. This is why your detergent for panties needs to be mild and bare it all (when it comes to the ingredients) on its labels so that you can make the right choice.
But isn’t a separate detergent for lingerie a little too much? We get it, and it’s human of us to trivialize our sexual and physical health, especially when ‘us’ is women. For decades, we’ve been shamed about what’s ‘down there’, including our undergarments. Our lingerie has either been ‘too sexual’ or ‘too intimidating’ to be even talked about openly. From keeping your underwear hidden from the rest of the clothes to whispering your undies of choice to a person who barely knows you, we’ve seen it all.

Think about it: You might splurge on expensive lingerie now and then, so why not spend a little and get the best detergent for panties? Many chemical-based detergents contain synthetic fragrances, chlorinated bleaches, brighteners, and other potentially toxic ingredients that may leave residue in your underwear, exposing your intimate areas to itches, rashes, UTIs, and yeast infections.

Various mainstream laundry detergents contain synthetic bleaches and optical brighteners, which are synthetic compounds that make clothing appear whiter and brighter. These are toxic to the body since they are non-biodegradable and carcinogenic. A mild underwear detergent like Clean Qween, on the other hand, has plant-based surfactants instead of chlorine bleaches or optical brighteners to remove stains and filth while being kind to the environment and the body.

You can use Clean Qween detergent for lingerie just like you use any other liquid detergent (only that this one’s a lot more gentle on your skin).

For handwash/bucket wash (recommended due to the delicate nature of lingerie): Dilute about 10 ml (1.5 capful) of the underwear detergent in 3 liters of warm water, for up to 7 undies/bras. Soak for 30-45 minutes. Wash with cold water.
For blood stains and other stains: Gently rub and wash lightly with an undiluted solution of Clean Qween.

Note: Always remember to use a mesh laundry wash bag to retain elasticity and prevent stretching or tearing Air-dry/hang undies/lingerie on a drying rack.Now that you’ve received a rundown on an underwear detergent like Clean Qween and why you need it more than you think you would, what’re you waiting for?
