Can someone explain this to me? I was looking at the packing list from last year for the camp hes iyh going to this summer. (Was trying to shop some stuff Black Friday) and I saw they said 2 pairs of tzitzis.. how does this work?? My son is 11 he wears the cotton u dershirt tzisis. And he wears it once and it goes in the laundry. Especially in the summer he will be sweating a ton. Can someone clarify what I’m meant to send in terms of tzizis? And how does it work with laundry? Sorry if this is basic he’s my first boy.

If you use it as an undershirt you need as many as they’d write undershirts. 2 is for those who use it separately and don’t wear a fresh one every day.

I would not send undershirt tzitzis. I would send undershirts with regular tzitzis to be worn over it, and don't put the tzitzis in the camp laundry. Halachically it is far preferable to not have the garment of the tzitzis worn directly on the skin anyway.

Most boys wear an undershirt and tzitzis on top.
They do NOT wash their tzitzis after every wear.

Isn’t that a lot of layers especially in the summer? Undershirt, tzitzis and tshirt? I asked my son he told me everyone in his class aside forms. Few boys wears the undershirt tzitzis… I think they switch at bar mitzva

Ok but unless you teach him how to wash them in the sink, I'm not sure how that would work in camp.

Ok that’s what I was wondering how it’s normally done at this age. I guess I’ll buy regular tzisis and u dershirts

I sent 12 pairs the first year and told him to put in mesh bag in white laundry. Came out ok. BH he graduated to the regular style tzitzis the next year
