    That's pretty much what I do. Wash them in the washing machine and hang dry. I usually wash them about every 2 weeks, otherwise the pouch just gets too sweaty and gives me jock itch.

    This is pretty much the way to do it. It's always worked for me. A word of warning, NEVER put them in the dryer.

    hey knight - fitness trainer mike here dude & that's a fairly standard ques around the fitness centre here man ... if u r wearin ur jock daily 4 sports etc u should def wash it every cpl days as u would briefs - if u rn't scrupulously clean bro u WILL develop jock itch - sometimes a dr's prescription is necessary 2 clear up the skin if u get a seriious case ... 4 ur jock wash on the gentle cycle of ur machine & let hang dry - 4 both mesh jocks or the cup version (remove cup insert 1st) ... 4 the cup supporter itself just use warm soapy water 2 clean the plastic & edges ... some guys use jocks as sex aids & toys (the fetish of the smell as well as the discoloration from urine & cum is important 2 some ppl 4 sexual xcitement) - since the jocks used this way r only worn briefly & a dude usually showers &/or gets cleaned up after the jock can just b aired out 2 dry - but eventually it should b laundered as well ... as a fitness trainer i urge all 2 b clean & take personal grooming seriously - both as a protection against skin outbreaks, etc as well as being sensitive to other ppl around u ... hope this helps! ... any ques just hit me up ... cheers, mike

    I will add that in that 2 week period I usually go through 2 different jocks. I almost always wear my classic Bike wide-band jock and then one of my synthetic jocks like an Under Armour or McDavid. The Bike jock is the one that really needs to be washed more often.

    I burned my Jockstrap when I left (active duty) and all the PT BS in the Marines, well I prob just threw it out, lol. Get some compression shorts, more comfy, last longer.

    I'd wash it every time I used it. Same as I would any underwear.

    I own 11 jocks. I just wear a fresh one every day. I wear them all day at work with boxers over them. I needed the extra support, and got tired of sitting on my goods. I hand wash them in the bathtub, and hang them over the shower curtain rod to dry. It has a plastic cover making for no rust worries. I found that washing them in the washing machine breaks down the elastic.

    Talk about sacrilege! burning your jock as a protest??! I can see burning it to give it an honorable ending, like a flag, but ya gotta love your jock.
    Can't say I agree with your comp shorts statement.

    I let my jock go for a long time before washing it.

    Any particular reason you choose to wear boxers over the jock? Personally I love the support my jocks provide with minimal excess material. This is especially true in basketball or running shorts.

    All the air dry stuff is great if you want them to last forever. At college athletics, the trainers used to distribute jockstraps every day with the towels. They just machine washed and dried them. They lasted a fair amount of time. I would say that jocks are built for that kind of treatment. Standard mesh jocks (which I like way better than the micro fiber ones anyway) are so cheap it really isn't worth the trouble to air dry. I would say, just throw them in the drier with the rest of the underwear.

    I soak my straps in a small plastic wash tub with Ivory liquid soap that's heavily diluted. Let them sit 12-24 hours. Air dry.

    I throw them in the washing machine and dry them in the sun together with my other clothes and briefs. This practice does not seem to affect the jockstrap's elastic at all, ditto my briefs'.

    My dad umpired Little League Baseball in my hometown in Connecticut in the 1950's and early 60's. He wore a Johnson & Johnson Athletic Supporter, men's large. He should have worn an athletic cup too. He had my mother launder his jockstrap once a week and then she would hang it above the bathtub at home to dry. That is how I discovered it at age 11. That is how I discovered my dad's jock and how he cared for it. That is how my jock & cup fetish got started.

    I live in a hot humid climate. Trust me, you want something over your butt. If it's just your pants rubbing your behind, you'll get a major case of dermatitis. You'll have big welps on your azz. Also, I work out in the public all day. One never knows when one might have their trousers ripped. I was bitten by a dog once, and had to take my pants off at the emergency room. You don't want word spreading about you in this small city.

    Sounds like a lot of the rest of us. Age 11, exposed to our first jockstrap. Never get over the fetish.
