10. Avoid Overly Tight Waistbands

Let's start with a waistband reality check. Overly tight waistbands can lead to more than just fashion faux pas; they can restrict airflow, trap moisture, and increase your chances of irritation.

Too tight waistbands can also dig into your skin, causing discomfort and even leaving marks. Nobody wants their underwear to leave a lasting impression in that sense of the word.

Instead, opt for underwear with a soft, wide, non-binding waistband that lets everything breathe. You want underwear that offers support without squeezing the life out of you, like the waistbands found on every pair of Drawlz.

9: Wear Moisture-Wicking Underwear

Moisture-wicking fabric is one of your best friends when it comes to underwear hygiene. These materials work like magic to pull sweat away from your skin, keeping you feeling fresh throughout the day. As a result, it helps keep you dry from sweat and prevents the dreaded swampy situation down there.

When the mercury rises and the sweat starts flowing, let your underwear do the heavy lifting to keep you feeling your best. Choose underwear that wicks moisture away, like every pair of Drawlz boxer briefs.

8. Use a Loofah to Wash Your Groin in the Shower

Loofahs aren’t isn't just for your back and limbs; they’re a secret weapon for maintaining hygiene in your most sensitive areas. So whenever you take a shower, use a loofah to gently clean your groin area.

Using a loofah helps exfoliate dead skin cells, prevent ingrown hairs, and keep your nether regions feeling fresh and smooth. Plus, exfoliation can help reduce the chances of uncomfortable ingrown hairs.

TLDR; Add a loofah to your shower routine and let it work its magic where it matters most.

7. Trim Body Hair

While we're in the shower, consider trimming body hair if it's getting a bit unruly. Excessive hair can trap moisture and odor, making it harder to stay fresh. On the other hand, trimming body hair can help maintain cleanliness, reduce moisture buildup, and even enhance your overall comfort.

When it comes to body hair, there's a fine line between stylish and unruly. Keep it neat, but don't feel pressured to go full Brazilian - unless that's your thing. Then by all means go full Ballsonaro.

6. Avoid Tight Pants

Tight pants can be stylish, but they also trap heat and moisture. This can lead to discomfort, itching, and even odor.

Remember, your underwear's best friend is airflow. When you wear tight pants, you're essentially creating a sauna for your nether regions, and nobody wants that. So, the next time you're shopping for pants, choose comfort and fit over extreme tightness. Your boyz will thank you.

5. Choose Breathable Fabrics

Breathable fabrics are like a breath of fresh air for your nether regions. These materials allow airflow and minimize moisture buildup, making them perfect for your daily adventures.

Cotton, nylon, and micro modal are the superheroes of breathable underwear materials, wicking moisture away and providing all-day comfort. Choose wisely and your underwear will become your best-kept secret for staying cool and dry, no matter what life throws at you.

4. Practice Good Post-Workout Hygiene

I get it; post-workout fatigue can make changing underwear seem like an afterthought. But trust me, it's essential. Lingering sweat can lead to irritation, chafing, and that unpleasant post-workout smell.

So, whether you're hitting the gym or going for a jog, take a quick shower when you’re done and slip into a fresh pair of Drawlz as part of your fitness routine. Your comfort, hygiene, car seat, and partner will thank you.

“If you don't smell good, then you don't look good.” ― Katy Elizabeth

3. Avoid Fabric Softeners

Fabric softeners are like the siren song of laundry; they promise softness but can lead to irritation and discomfort in your sensitive areas. To keep your underwear irritation-free, skip the fabric softeners when doing your laundry for a smoother, irritation-free experience. Your nether regions will appreciate the extra TLC.

2. Wash Your Hands Before Handling Underwear

I know it sounds like it’s a step too far, but it’s always a good idea to wash your hands thoroughly before handling clean underwear. 

Your hands touch countless surfaces throughout the day, some of which may not be the cleanest, and you can unwittingly transfer germs and contaminants onto your freshly laundered Drawlz. So to keep your freshly cleaned underwear, well, fresh, always wash your hands.

“Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world.” — George Bernard Shaw

1. Avoid Excessive Powder Use

A little talcum powder can help with moisture control, but going overboard can result in clumps and discomfort. Use powder sparingly, and remember that moderation is key.

“Cleanliness becomes more important when godliness is unlikely.” — P.J. O’Rourke
