Do you wash Undergarments in hot or cold water? Let’s end the debate.

Do you wash Undergarments in hot or cold water? Let’s end the debate.

In the realm of undergarment maintenance, a debate rages on: should we wash our unmentionables in hot water or cold water? The answer, my friends, lies in the delicate balance between maintaining intimate hygiene and preserving the longevity of our undergarments.

Preserving Intimate Hygiene:

The realm of undergarments demands utmost care for our intimate areas. Washing with hot water can effectively remove oils, sweat, and bacteria, ensuring a thorough cleanse.

Cold water, on the other hand, is gentler and helps prevent the loss of natural oils from the fabric, thus maintaining a healthy pH balance.


Extending Longevity:

Hot water can cause shrinkage, fading, and damage to delicate fabrics. It is akin to subjecting your undergarments to a fiery trial, shortening their lifespan.

Cold water, being kinder to fabrics, helps prevent wear and tear, allowing your undergarments to remain comfortable and stylish for longer.


The Role of Ugees - A harmful chemical-Free Liquid Detergent:

Ugees understands the importance of maintaining intimate hygiene while caring for your undergarments. Its plant-based liquid detergent is designed to be gentle yet effective, ensuring a thorough cleanse without compromising the fabric's integrity.

By being harmful chemical-free, Ugees avoids the potential irritants and allergens found in traditional detergents, making it ideal for those with sensitive skin.

When it comes to washing undergarments, the hot versus cold water debate can finally find its peaceful resolution.  Use cold or lukewarm water unless there is any stubborn stain that requires soaking for 5-10 minutes in slightly hotter water before washing with Ugees. As far as protection against bacteria is concerned, Ugees is a disinfectant formulation that is antibacterial so you are not required to use hot water to disinfect! Isn’t that wonderful? Hence, one must not use hot water to wash lingerie if they want them to last long while Ugees takes care of the germs!
