Have you noticed 'bleach' stains in your regular undies? Those pesky white marks that won't go away no matter how many times you wash them!?
Don't worry, you're not alone!
Your vaginal discharge is naturally acidic which can interact with the dye in your undies and leave white or yellow stains.

It's perfectly normal, and in fact a sign that your vaginal is healthy.
Dr Alex Eskander, consultant gynaecologist at The Gynae Centre, says ‘The vagina contains ‘good’ bacteria, like lactobacilli, which keeps the vagina healthy by maintaining the optimum acidity level, in turn preventing bad bacteria from causing infection.
This discharge increases during ovulation and pregnancy due to an increase in cervical mucus.
When exposed to the air, the discharge can stain underwear a mild yellow colour due to oxidation.
Having bleached patches on your underwear is quite normal and generally nothing to worry about.’
You won't get these stains in your Modibodi though as our lining is antimicrobial and repels stains and solids.
