Yeast infections and Bacterial infections can effect a lot of women during hormonal changes, adding in new medications, allergic reactions, etc. These infections can affect men as well. Passing them back and forth can be a nightmare. Disposing of underwear can help but can also be expensive.
Here’s a tip to sanitize your underwear to kill the yeast and bacteria and eliminating reinfection from that source.
Wash underwear together, separate from other clothing. Add in vinegar or grapefruit extract to the washer to kill off the majority. Then before you put the undergarments into the dryer, (Important: Make sure there is no metal or sparkles on the underwear) place damp underwear on a paper towel, and put in the microwave for 2 minutes on high. (caution: underwear will be very hot when removing from microwave.)
This will kill the remainder of the bacteria and yeast. Immediately, place in dryer to dry the underwear.
The microwave is fine because, all the bad stuff died in the intense heat, but some people feel the need to clean the microwave after this purpose. Sanitize microwave by using a bowl of water in the microwave for 3 minutes on high to allow steam to kill anything left over. Wipe down with a clean cloth or paper towel. Repeat this process until infection completely clears up.
