Do you wash underwear with the rest of your clothes?

Well, I don't see anything yucky about washing underwear with the rest of the clothes. After all, the underwear has been clinging to your own body all this while. But one of friends doesn't seem to think so. She made a comment that struck me as odd: "Yuck! Washing underwear with the rest of the clothes is so filthy!! I wash it separately." So, what do you do? Wash it separately or with the rest of the clothes? Ultimately, what difference does it make?

Wow, your friend must have really yukky underwear if it's so bad she can't wash it with everything else!! Yes I wash my undies along with everything else, and I normally wash the nappies in there too. I use a machine, so everything is rinsed beautifully afterwards. If I was doing it by hand I guess I'd do the nappies in different water, but I wouldn't worry about separating out the undies.

I wash mine in with all of my othe washing..the only time that i dont is if I am washing some white underwear and the wash is a coloured wash...then i just wash the few small out by hand as im not really into getting them a nice shae of grey!!!but I se no reason to wash them separately,and in no way woul I think of it as being dirty in anyway!

I don't anything yucky with washing underwear with the rest of the clothes... but i prefer to separate them... since underwears are small and the material they are made of are more... should i say... delicate... but if i have no time... and i am running out of clean underwear... i just throw it in the washing machine with the rest of my clothes...

Yes, I do, simply because it's too much excess of water if you separate them. i have both white and colored under wear that if i separate those two it will be just another damn work. maybe that user never considered combining them...

i will wash my underwears with the rest of my clothes only . i don;t wash them separetely. there is no objection for me and my husband to combine it with other clothes. i don;t feel yucky .afterall they are also clothes only like other clothes.

I agree with yuck washing underwear and socks with the rest of your cloths is gross, the fecal matter and body fluid are in your dirty underwear,and socks (ie toe jam) yes when you wash the cloths all together it looks clean but all you did is move the fecal matter, body fluids and toe jam from your socks and underwear to the rest of you clothing, and depending how long you go in between baths or showers your cloths will not be clean, the fecal matter will have settled in all your clothing sometimes leaving behind a smell of its own like old wet cloths .You do what you want Your the one wearing you poop I was sock and under wear seperatly you can use hot and bleach to kill any bacteria left on the your things Nuts In PA.

I don't wash my underwear with other clothes as I separate clothes into the temperature and type of wash as well as colour. So all underwear is sorted together as they will be all put on the same type of wash, while other items of clothing will be put on different types of washes. Then the underwear will be split between dark and light, just in case the colour runs. I don't see it as disgusting to wash everything together, just not something that I do.
