Different fabric , different features in men’s lingerie so why do men treat them in the same manner when it comes to washing?

Here are a few tips on how to handle each fabric in a better way.


Cotton is one of the easiest fabrics to deal with when it comes to clothing. Whether it’s your cotton-based mens lingerie or your cotton T-shirt, you can wash it without getting worried about damaging parts. The biggest advantage of cotton-based male lingerie is that it can withstand high temperatures as boiling water does not affect the strength of the fiber.

People who are obsessed with chlorine bleach, cotton-based men’s underwear gives them the freedom to use them. Just make sure you go with color-safe bleach on dyed cotton. Also, you do not require any specific detergent, just a good quality detergent for cleaning cotton-based male lingerie. As compared to other lingerie, cotton male underwear takes a much longer time to dry up therefore, in case of tumble dry ensure that the dryer heat setting is at a higher temperature.

For men who have been looking for a pair of underwear for everyday comfort, cotton undies can be trusted blindly.


Linen is a sophisticated and classy fabric. Well, there are various varieties of linen in the market. Some of them are washable and some of them need to dry clean so make sure you check the label just to know in which category your linen underwear falls.

Usually, drapery linens, upholstery linens, and decorative linens are advised for dry cleaning. Linen mixed men’s lingerie can be washed gently with hands. 

As said, precaution is better than cure therefore always read the instructions given on the label no matter what.
