No-Wash Underwear

Organic Basics boasts that its Silvertech 2.0 line of underwear has been treated with anti-microbial silver chloride, and therefore never needs to be washed. Or, at least, only needs to be washed every few weeks.

Maybe that pitch works for some people, but it doesn't work for me. I don't want to be rewearing a pair of sweaty, old underwear, even if it has been anti-microbially treated.

It would be great for two demographics; the suspected hikers and the people whose bodily odor is so intense that they have to take two showers a day to make it bearable. Barely.
Add to that the vaginitis sufferers and you could have a great market for an underwear line for women. The key would be to grease enough doctor's paws.

I vaguely remember something similar advertised back in the hippie days. If I read the advert for this company correctly, I can buy a pair of socks for $15.00 U.S. or a t-shirt for $60.00 U.S. That's pretty pricey. No, thank you. It sounds like an excuse to not launder your undergarments on a regular basis.

I would prefer "transformer underwear" that will self-mend. But don't start it working until there's less than 50% of the material remaining; it's just getting really comfortable at that point.

Instead of hiking (not that I have anything against hiking, or hikers, I mean, people have a right to live their life however they want, even if it is smelly, dirty, and goes against all concepts of civilized behaviour), but I could sometimes use these while driving. A couple of times a year, I make a trip that's between twelve and fourteen hours, and depending on the season and the stress level of the traffic (and how long it takes me to get through that god-forsaken St. Louis), I can end up smelling like I've been living in a ditch for a week (and not a particularly nice ditch).

I remember some astronaut tested a prototype of these during his stay aboard the space station. Could it have been the same company?
