This company is selling self-cleaning underwear - you can wear it for weeks without getting smelly!
The company says that the underwear is made from a fabric called HercFiber which is a blend of bamboo, eucalyptus, beechwood and copper.
Wearing the same pair of underwear for days at a time isn't something that many people do for the obvious reason that they start to stink just like your other clothing items. A Minnesota-based company has come up with underwears that are not only sustainable but also self-clean.
HercLéon describes their Kribi underwear as "the world's cleanest underwear" that one could "wear for days, weeks, or even months without getting smelly."
The company says that the underwear is made from a fabric called HercFiber which is a blend of bamboo, eucalyptus, beechwood and copper. Underwear made from HercFiber stays fresher and cleaner for much longer, claims the company.
"Kribi continuously destroys all bacteria and stay cleaner. But we do recommend letting them air out for few hours after a day of use. By the time you’ll pick them up the next day, they’ll smell as fresh as unworn underwear," the product's description on Indiegogo reads.
The company adds that Kribi is "100 days risk & odor free."
This is not the first self-cleaning product that HercLéon has made. Their entire business model is based around articles that you don't need to wash for weeks and months and they'll still smell great. They have made self-cleaning socks, T-Shirts, and bedsheets.
The idea of self-cleaning clothing came to HercLéon's founder Wenceslaus (Wen) Muenyi when he was on a trip to Iceland. "During the trip, Wen only packed one backpack of clothing and very quickly realized that his one backpack wasn't going to be enough, learning that certain clothes smelled bad after one wear, making the other clothes smell too. Being naturally curious, Wen returned home and started studying textiles and the process that leads to clothes smelling bad," their website reads.
It adds, "We believe the future of clothing, bedding, and other material based products is self-cleaning and we're excited to lead the world towards a naturally cleaner and more eco-friendly future."
