Will my Modibodi garments smell when I am wearing them?Updated 9 months ago

Blood and urine don’t have a strong odour. Sometimes vaginal fluid and bacteria can create odour – this is normal. To give you peace of mind, our Modifier Technology combats odour. The moisture-wicking gusset layer is made of 100% Merino wool which naturally locks away odour, only releasing it when you throw your Modibodi in the washing machine. For our products that don’t have Merino wool in the gusset, we use an anti-odour treatment to give you piece of mind your undies won’t smell. 

However, if you leave them soaking for too long or store them before they're completely dry, you might end up with that musty smell.

To get rid of any unwanted odours, here's what you can do:

  • Mix some white vinegar with water in a 1:3 ratio (just enough to cover your underwear), and rinse your underwear thoroughly, paying attention to the gusset or padding.
  • You can let the underwear soak in this solution for a short period but avoid leaving them in for too long (not more than 20 minutes).
  • After that, toss them in the washing machine along with a bit more vinegar, in a ratio of 1:5.
  • For the best outcome, hang them out in the sunlight until they're completely dry before stashing them back in your drawers.
