How do I properly care for and wash my panties?

The easy answer is to get ones that you can machine wash like everything else.  These days, that's most of them.

Even a lot of lace panties are reasonably machine-washable if you put them in mesh delicates bags (look up "delicates laundry bag" on Amazon for examples) for washing, and turn down the spin rate.

For those of you who venture into silk and other things that require handwashing, or simply want to be more gentle with your favorites, you will probably want to find a specific detergent for delicates.  Silk is one case where using a specialized detergent -- there are a number of good silk washing liquids available -- is important.  Good detergents and good care will keep your best lingerie lingering for years to come.

The difficult part is keeping the white cotton gusset on colored panties from developing sweat stains.
I have tried Clorox2, but nothing seems to work.
It is the #1 reason I buy new and throw out the old even when the leg bands are still tight.

Cold water, delicate cycle and Woolite. This may seem excessive (or not) but I do my panty laundry every six weeks - yes, 42 pairs. My understand of washing machines has told me that one needs to have a full(ish) load of clothes for the machine to function correctly - hence the 42 pairs. I hang them on a drying rack in a spare room - never in the clothes dryer. That's it.

What do you do with knickers that are a combination of dark and light colours? The K&L range has lots with brightly coloured satin and light/white lace edging. Is handwashing the only way to delay the trims eventually going grey?

For your delicates, consider getting a mesh washing bag for using in the machine. These work well for pantyhose, too.

Honestly, I am at the point that it makes sense to me to hand wash my delicates. Takes maybe an hour depending on how much there is to do. I keep a tub for washing and fill the sink with fresh water for rinsing. We'll see if it becomes a pain. 😅
