How do you wash colored underwear, if you have some? Do you wash it with your white underwear and hope it's colorfast, with similarly colored clothes, or in a wash by itself?

I normally handle colored underwear quite similarly with clothes. I will not mix them with the light colored underwear such as those white in color. I would hand wash them separately and make sure they are not in contact because I don't want my underwear to get stained.

yes it has to be separated because if not and you put the coloreds with whites all your whites will be a faded off color. Especially if you put reds with whites..it turns them pink. Yes I speak from experience..lol hubby had pink boxers..lol

I divide by putting heavy materials like blue jeans together, then colored, then whites. Since I use a little bleach in the whites, I do the colored underwear in with the colored shirts. I will do light colored together then darker. I really had to think about how I did this because it is something I just do automatically. Wish I had a robot to fold and put them away aftwards though.

Wear boxers, they are so much more comfortable.

94% of my panties are white. 100% cotton. The colored ones are boxers that I usually wash with the bed sheets in the washing machine.
