How to wash Thinx Teens

Thinx Teens are reusable and simple to care for — just machine wash, and hang dry. (Do not iron, bleach, or use fabric softener.)

Care instructions

Machine-wash cold
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 Dry
Hang up Thinx Teens™ in a non-humid environment, and wait for them to fully dry before putting them away. No ironing, please!

With these simple steps, Thinx Teens™ will stay at maximum performance for 40 washes, which is typically around 2 years.

Tips & tricks

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.

The essentials

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.

FAQ

( Q )

Will blood get all over my other clothes in the washing machine?

( A )

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.

( Q )

How long do Thinx Teens take to hang dry?

( A )

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

( Q )

Oops! I ran Thinx Teens in the dryer! What will happen?

( A )

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!

( Q )

What temperature should I wash my Thinx Teens at?

( A )

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.
