Thinx Teens are reusable and simple to care for — just machine wash, and hang dry before first wear and after each use. (Do not iron, bleach, or use fabric softener.)
Toss them in a normal load of laundry on a delicate cycle — the other clothes will be fine! (No bleach or fabric softener.) If you'd rather hand wash, use lukewarm water.
Hang up Thinx Teens™ in a non-humid environment, and wait for them to fully dry before putting them away. No ironing, please!
Separate laundry bags
Although you can wash Thinx Teens with your other clothing, sometimes it helps to have a dedicated laundry bag just for your period undies. That way you can easily wash your pairs even if you're not doing your other laundry at that time.
Preparing a kit with period essentials is a wonderful way to stay comfortable — and organized! Add a couple pairs of Thinx Teens, a bag to place them in once you change, and other period lifesavers such as cramp relievers or a heating pad.
Where to hang dry
Hang drying your undies will help keep them in great shape! Don't know where to hang 'em? Try over your shower rod, over a chair, or on a hanger in a non-humid environment.

Nope! Washing Thinx Teens with your other laundry is perfectly hygienic and won’t stain your other clothes — if you’re still concerned, give the undies a quick rinse after use, let them dry, then throw them in the hamper for laundry day.

The underwear should take about 19 hours to dry under non-humid conditions. Drying time may be affected by humidity levels and airflow.

Don't panic — a few cycles in the dryer won't hurt them. However, repeated exposure can reduce the performance of the underwear, so try not to make a habit out of it!

Machine-wash your Thinx Teens on cold. The standard cold wash is 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit (15 C - 27 C). If you're hand-washing, the water should feel close to room temperature.
