It’s not about all laundry detergent or fabric conditioner scent, but it’s all about being clean and odor-free. Washing your clothes, especially your undergarments, sometimes needs extra steps of care. Ever wonder why some of your underwear retains or absorb an unpleasant smell despite the thorough washing with laundry detergent and conditioner in the washing machine? There are a variety of reasons why undergarments like underwear keep that odor after washing. One of them is that you use underwear so many times. It is important to update or buy new underwear after so many times of using it. Another reason is when you have your monthly period, even though you wear napkins or tampons and all women should know this, that bloodstain on underwear is possible. In this situation, I would prefer to wash my underwear by hand instead of throwing it in the washing machine But first, it’s essential to soak your stained underwear to water with baking soda overnight. The baking soda will clean and eliminate the stains and get rid of the odor that would linger if you wash it directly to the washing machine. To soak your underwear once in a while is a good practice of personal hygiene and save you from the embarrassment of an unpleasant smell due to wearing half-clean underwear.
