Bleached crotch in black underwear?!?!?! - Page 2

post #21 of 88
very interesting.

I noticed that I get tiny holes in the fabric crotch lining (on cheap undies). I always thought it was odd that it would wear out there before the butt area.

I can't seem to find the cringing smiley.
LMAO!!!

Well, I have a midwife appointment tomorrow, maybe I'll ask her. She has already seen me give birth, so I'm sure nothing is off limits - even bleached out underwear. Funny, I can poop in front of her, but I'm actually nervous about asking about the underwear thing

Yup, my nether regions eat undies too. I'm glad I'm not alone- I thought I was some kind of freak.

Well this is all very encouraging, it's good to know that there are lots of us in the same boat.

This is cracking me up happens to me too, and only since i got pg with #1.

Thing is, I happen to know that my body's ph is perfect (thank you very much) because my sister is very acidic and gave me a few of her testing strips and mine is right in the middle of normal.

curiouser and curiouser.....

Well, it doesn't happen to me, but how weird am I that this thread made me run to my underwear drawer and look at the crotch of all my dark underwear to check?!

You would only be weird if you went in there with the peroxide so you could be part of the cool crowd.

Can I join the sisterhood?!?

Anyone think it has to do with the frequency/amount of CM? When I started doing fertility awareness, I was really confused about "dry days." I never have a dry day! There is always at least some CM in my underwear everyday...

It might just be of CM, as Displaced Yooper said. I have always had a lot of it, even when I was a teenager, and I remember wondering how some women were able to go underwearless for certain outfits. I met other folks in my Women's Studies class that I later became friends with, who also talked about lots of CM, but we never talked about the bleached crotch effect. I was too embarressed to bring it up...

But does CM bleach fabric?

I can't bring myself to do a swatch test... sounds kinda weird to do.

Add me to the sisterhood...it's happened since I was a teenager.

I once lived with a then-boyfriend's parents, and she was EXTREMEMLY OCD, so she did all of the laundry to make sure it was done "right". Imagine my embarrassment when she took me aside and suggested I might want to wear pantyliners to stop discoloring my underwear...THE HORROR, OH MY THE HORROR!!!

I've heard it is caused by a high acid content, but I've never asked anyone about it. Just Google.

Me too!! Phew, I'm not a freak!
post #37 of 88
I'll have to chime in as well. it's happened to me for years, I have no idea, but it does eventually bleach out my black yoga pants (I go commando in them).

I don't think that's it, as I have a lot of CM and it doesn't happen to me.
post #39 of 88
I've had that happen once or twice but that was a long time ago. I now wear black underwear almost exclusively and don't have that issue.

Huh.

I wonder what the deal is?
