A new kind of underwear

Anybody planning on buying these? Self Cleaning underwear.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

What if it shii in my pants, will it clean that?

Also to all the travelers who travel minimally; is it really THAT hard to pack more than 1 pair of underwear?!

I highly doubt it. Maybe that's why they encourage you to buy two pairs for $69.
A second pair just in case such an emergency happens. lol

I think I will just continue to wash mine the old fashion way and always pack extra. 3 pairs per day I am travelling is my standard.

I take 5 pairs with me. If I need to stay longer on a business trip, there’s always dry cleaning done by the hotel. Or a washer/dryer on-site.

LOL at the price. 5 pairs barely take up any space.

I must be reading this wrong.

If you're travelling for 5 days you take 15 pairs of underwear?

Or did you mean a pair for every 3 days of travel?

Is it really that hard to clean your underwear in the sink, and just alternate? Heck, even when hiking it's not difficult to clean underwear.

I don't travel that long usually, but yes. If I go for a weekend or long weekend trip, I want to have 3 pairs packed for each day I am gone. Boxers take up no space, so why try to stretch it.

Also, I am a dude, who sweats a lot, sometimes I change 1/2 way through the day just because, especially at somewhere like Darien Lake where outside all day, in and out of theater etc. At least, that's how u remember it, before Covid and all.

For these self cleaning pair not likely, need to get out of that stink at the end of the day period. Require minimum 1 pair per day minimum plus a couple of extra just in case you have some extra engagements in the day, and 2 pairs per day is likely the max i go as i can always get some cleaned at the hotel should i have additional needs. I'm an old guy however, i can see active youth needing more as they work out and play sports leading to lots of extra pairs in an given timeframe, so i can see the 3 pairs if the days include sporting events that they are participating in.

Also tend to pack more than one pair of undies per day when I travel

I typically shower 2x a day

When I get up in the AM ... or if not then, after I visit the hotel gym for my morning work out or a swim

Next shower is after work, or before bed

Depends on what’s on the agenda

Like @Gutty96 if it’s an outdoorsy vacation in the sun ... May shower before dinner

I put on clean undies, after every shower. Dont think that is unusual. Not putting sweaty stink back on my clean bod

I always carry 1 pair of undies for each day of travel, plus a couple more, or even double that amount for a sweaty tropical trip. They are small and fill in the gaps in a packed suitcase. I can't feel clean and fresh if I am not wearing clean underwear!

I have tried expensive travel undies that are supposed to dry overnight after washing etc., but nothing beats fresh white laundered cotton for comfort.

I would like to try some of those disposable products, like Depends, but I don't want to buy a whole box just for a trial fit. But you could just discard those every day and create space in your luggage for souvenirs and gifts. Sometimes I pack my oldest underwear and discard some of it along the way.
