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 (like your regular undies or bras). Wash before first wear, then after each use.

washing instructions

  • step 1

      machine wash cold

      Wash cold before first wear, then after each use on a delicate cycle. Throw them in with the rest of your laundry. (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.
