Do you donate clothes?

If so, what is included in your donations? I am talking strictly used clothing. DH just threw some of his old boxers in my give away pile and I asked him if he were serious. He said people donate used underwear. I think that I would rather go commando than wear used unders. How about you? Would you wear used underwear?

  • I used to work in a thrift shop. We tossed anything that came within contact of the genitals unless it was brand new with tags. This included bras as well.

  • I HAVE worn someone else's used underwear, but it was my sister's and it was truly unavoidable, definitely not by choice. I would not go shopping at Goodwill for some underpants, that's for sure! No, we don't donate our undies.

  • Yes I donate, normally my daughters clothes (not underwear!!), my rule is I dont donate anything I wouldnt let my daughter wear, in other words I never donate anything thats stained or worn out, only stuff thats in good condition. I have never and would never donate used underwear!!! Wow besides it just being gross, why isnt he wanting to wear them anymore???? Im guessing because they are old and ready to be thrown out, so what would make him think anyone else would want to wear them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In our house we buy underwear and when they are old we throw them out, thats it.
