Apparel: Clothing, especially outer garments or attire
Thongs and G Strings, while certainly small in size, are not necessarily small in price. While thongs and G Strings can be purchased in quantity from discount stores, a quality thong or G String cost upwards of $15 to $30. So, whether you paid $5 or $30, knowing how to care for your sexy underwear can keep them looking hot for a lot longer.
Thongs are more delicate than the white cotton bikini panties or briefs that most of us wear on a daily basis. Treating them as the delicates that they are will extend the life span and appearance. Knowing proper laundry care is important to this end. Regardless of fabric content, most thongs and G Strings are washable.
The laundry care term “washable" means different things to different people. For
myself, I want “washable” to mean I can use a little common sense, sort the
colors, throw it into the washer, into the dryer, hang it up and then wear it
without having to iron it first. To guys in general, and most college students,
male or female, washable means to cram as many clothes as possible into the
washing machine without regard to water temperature, color or fabric and hope
for the best. Well, when it comes to thongs and G Strings, washable means "hand
wash only" regardless of the fabric care instruction label.
