Women have been wearing underwear for centuries, but the advent of cotton changed everything. Cotton is soft and breathable, making it an ideal material to wear under all types of clothing. Today there is a wide variety of styles of cotton underwear for women. From briefs, thongs, jazz pants, boxers, bikinis to bralettes and everything in between, you can find the perfect garment to suit your shape and size.
At Maathai Organic we advise you to wear organic cotton underwear when doing activities that involve a lot of sweat production or urine leakage, as our fabrics absorb excess moisture better than thicker materials such as synthetics. This will keep the skin around the vulvar area clean and provide all-day comfort. Since moisture can alter bacteria levels in that sensitive area of the body, choosing organic pima cotton panties can help reduce this risk significantly.

What is the best soap to wash my underwear?
Clearly it is easier to wash our cotton underwear with soaps that are free of perfumes as these contain chemicals to remove dirt (enzymes) and at the same time chemicals to scent the clothes with fragrances that can cause irritation and allergies in the vagina.
Additionally, the use of these elements in the washing process of your underwear causes some damage to the ocean and marine life.

The best way to keep garments looking like new is to hand wash them along with a neutral soap, if you don't know why to use this type of soap, here we explain. If for some reason you can't wash your garments by hand, use the delicate program in the washing machine to prevent the fibers from weakening and wearing out faster than normal.
*Do not squeeze hard:
Squeezing these garments hard will only make them baggy over time, due to the fact that squeezing can deform them and in a wet state it is difficult for them to remember their original state along with their elasticity.
*Let them dry in the shade,not in direct sunlight:
