I recently found several old underwear which I still use. I actually think I have never thrown out any underwear in the past 10 years. Do you guys throw out your old underwear?

  1. Eventually. I normally convert them into rags for cleaning if they’re not worthy of wearing anymore. The soft fabric works really well for cleaning glass, for example.

    Once they’re beyond use with stuff like that they’ll go in the trash.

  2. I hate throwing out the socks and underwear that I prefer for whatever reason. So I make sure to do a cleaning of my sock and underwear drawer every few years no matter what to toss away the ripped ones and buy new stuff. I just did this at the beginning of the pandemic, bought new boxers, new boxer briefs, and new socks. It’s always refreshing af to have a bunch of nice new underwear.

  3. I keep all my underwear as long as possible. There does seem to be this odd trend of them disappearing not long after my wife comments on the shape they’re in though…

  4. I throw out old underwear when it stops fitting right (the elastic waistband is stretched out or the fabric is saggy, etc.). Ill fitting undergarments tend to be uncomfortable and they look sloppy.

  5. If it weren’t for the wife intervening I’d wear my boxers until they fall apart, simply because I wouldn’t care. That being said, there’s a nice german word for old worn out underwear, it’s Liebestöter which literally translates to lovekiller.
