Cleaned out the Underwear Drawer? Now What do you do with the old pairs?
If you have read us in the past month you know we covered how to organize your underwear drawer. Now we are tackling a topic we don’t like. When do you clean our your drawer and get rid of older pairs?
- If you have a good friend into underwear and the same size consider doing a swap. It can be fun to get some undies you don’t like and trade them to a buddy for pairs he doesn’t like. This works well with a guy who has briefs but likes boxer briefs and vice versa. It’s a win-win for underwear lovers!
- Give pairs that haven’t been worn much to a friend. We all have a friend who’s getting into underwear and it’s good to expose them to some great brands. Or you can just give a pair to someone who loves underwear (see above but no trade)
- Don’t know anyone into undies, you ca make something out of the underwear if you can. Gone are the days when you use underwear as dust rags. With what we pay for a lot of the pairs it’s a sin to do that! One things i want to do is make a quilt out of some of my favorite pairs. A reader suggested it years ago and I’m constantly going through that third drawer to find pairs that would make a great quilt. This also will take a ton of underwear to make, since I’m a briefs guy.
- Throw them away. I hate this option. But some guys don’t have a problem doing this. I hate it but have done it in the past. Mainly with swim briefs. The spandex gets so worn our there is no recovery. So the only option is throw them away. I hear some say donate them but most clouting places won’t take worn underwear.
