    How do you dispose off your discarded bras and panties? Just throw it in the garbage bin alongwith other garbage or do something else to it like, using it/part of it as a cleaning cloth, etc before throwing it away?

    I just throw them in trash. If I have other clothes that are not suitable for donation then I either cut them up for rags or put into clothing recycle bins but I don’t do that with used undergarments.

    I had seen lingerie stores keeping a bin so that customers can put used ones. I guess these stores take out the wires or hooks and reuse/recycle those.Had seen La senza stores keeping the bin for these purpose. You can cut out the hook part and use as bra extenders.

    That's a good idea. But, I don't know whether lingerie stores in India have such a facility.

    Cutting the hook part to use as bra extender is a nice idea, but both the eye and hook part have to be stitched together, which is cumbersome.

    Thanks for sharing your experience.

    During the begining of lockdown last year, saw a meme in facebook on how a bra can be used as a mask by cutting out the cups and attaching slings to it, which was really hilarious and creative.
