If you have to throw out undies, do you wash them first?

Haha... totally random question. I don't know why but if I have a pair that is starting to fall apart and needs to go in the rubbish bin, I always wear them, then wash them again before I chuck them out. Is it just me??

I don't do it on purpose, but I do mostly throw out clean ones. I typically throw them out while folding. Just works out that way.

This is typically how I do it. Most of the undies I throw out are clean because I catch them when I am folding laundry. Otherwise I wouldn't wash first then pitch.

I just toss them as I find them..sometimes upon wearing or while folding. I wouldn't wash them first though, but I feel pretty secure that no one will be going through our trash.

Ha! The pharmacist told my husband once to throw out expired pills into poopy diapers.

Yes this. And I never thought about this before! It. Is kinda pointless to wash them if I will just be throwing them away...

I do wash them because I cut them in half and use them as little rags. I never throw out cloth stuff until it's in shreds.
