    serviced apartment with washing machine

    I ALWAYS get 'terminal / extreme crotch rot' despite 2 - 3 showers & changing cloths several times per day & never wearing anything but cloths direct from the laundry.

    I sweat profusely even when not in Thailand .. in Bangkok it seems I begin sweating in the elevator in anticipation of the steamy street.

    I have decided (?) that the soi laundries do not use hot water (expensive) or good soap (expensive).
    I'm bringing my favored laundry soap w/ bleach with me this time.

    My question is: Where are the serviced apartments with in room washing machine?

    Several apartments have 'community washers' .. I'd hesitate to leave my cloths unattended. Sitting in a laundry room every other day is not how I want to spend my time.
    I'll gladly pay extra to have a machine in my room to load during morning coffee or during an afternoon rest.
    as long as there are tests, there will be prayers in public schools.

    US political pondering: what % of CO2 deniers are also birthers who believe kangaroos walked to the ark

    Go to an Amway store and get some of their roll on. It is the best in the world.

    No one will want your sweaty old clothes nor your rotten crotch shorts!

    Use powder, you can get prickly powder or antibacterial powder, works like a charm, nothing to do with laundry

    Start freeballing. Cures crotch rot, and the wind tunnel created whilst riding a motorbike is quite pleasant.

    don't wear cheap nylon shirts, invest in good non-iron cotton shirts and pants

    Many good posts here. I use a spray can TINACTIN for both jock itch and athletes foot. Works well.

    First thing is throw away your Jockeys, even boxers are a bit much,, Quit the showers with soap in most places as it will dry the oils out of your fur bag and that start itch.
    I had it bad in 68 in Nam but shit canned the skivvies and have had no problems since, if it don't get below zero F then I am a swinger.
