how to wash your Thinx

Thinx are super simple to care for, so you can use them again and again — just treat your Thinx like you would any other delicates (your regular undies or bras).

washing instructions

  • step 1

    machine wash cold

    Throw them in with the rest of your laundry on a delicate cycle. (Your other clothes will be fine!) Do not use bleach or fabric softener.

    or, hand wash

    If you don’t have a washing machine, try handwashing your Thinx in lukewarm water. Fun fact: handwashing *all* of your delicates preserves elasticity!
  • step 2

    hang dry

    Hang up your Thinx in a non-humid environment, and let 'em dry completely. Avoid ironing & machine-drying to preserve elasticity and keep the leaks in.

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

tips & tricks

Caring for your Thinx quickly becomes a part of your routine. Here are some pointers from a few Thinx super fans:

rinse in the shower

I go into the shower wearing my Thinx and rinse them there. Then, I can throw them right in the wash or hang them up to dry if I’m not doing laundry right away. Dani B.

use a mesh bag

During the week of my period, I store them in a mesh bag, and after they’re washed, I don’t have to go through my wet laundry and fish them out. No more accidental drying! Amelia F.

wash 'em after your period

I don't have a laundry machine, so I usually wait until a night after my period is over, and wash and hang all my Thinx together. By morning, they’re all dry and I can put them away. Nora R.
