Minnesota Business Selling Self-Cleaning Underwear
A Minnesota company called HercLéon appeared on 'Shark Tank' this past Friday. They pitched their bed sheets that you don't have to wash for months. HercLéon's entire business model is based around things you don't need to wash as often and they'll still smell great. This includes the self-cleaning underwear they're now selling on Indiegogo called Kribi. They say you can wear this underwear for days/weeks without washing them.
This sounds super gross at first but I'm also curious about HercLéon's products. 'Do they actually work?' is my main question.
On their website, they write, "we believe the future of clothing is laundry-free, and we are excited to lead the human race towards this cleaner, more eco-friendly, and less time-wasting way of life." So if you don't want to wash your HercLéon, you don't have to! And if you do want to wash them, then that's cool too.
HercLéon sells shirts, socks, and a hat that can be worn over and over and still smell great. They also have bed sheets (like I mentioned earlier) and pillowcases. One of the newer additions to their site is their anti-acne face masks. And then, of course, their underwear is the next item they're working on launching. Based on a recent Facebook post, the underwear should hit their website next week!
All of their products, including the underwear, are made with this fabric they call HercFiber, which they claim is a bacteria-fighting fabric. On their site, they talk about how the founder, Wen, spent years researching this fabric to perfect it. On the Indiegogo posting for the underwear, they list out all of the benefits that HercFiber has. They say it fights bacteria, stays cool, stays dry, luxury soft, ultra-durable, and blocks UV waves.
If all of this truly works, then take my money, this is awesome. I'm still not sure how I feel about wearing underwear multiple times without washing it but a shirt I'm down to try.
I would definitely categorize this under something odd invented in Minnesota. Actually, there are quite a few 'odd' products invented in Minnesota. Keep scrolling to check them all out.
