why does vaginal discharge bleach black underwear but stains white underwear?

Both are bleaching from the acidity of vaginal discharge.

White fiber also turns yellowish when you bleach it repeatedly.

Follow up question would be asking what is the best colour of underwear to wear?

The word bleach is used a few ways. Bleach can refer specifically to a certain kind of chemical solution that is known for removing color or bleach can refer to that color removal. Because words like that can be used different ways, sometimes words can be confusing.

Vaginal discharge is chemically very different from bleach. In terms of acidity, you could say they’re opposites and that leads to different kinds of reactions. Instead of dramatically bleaching color away from cloth like real bleach, vaginal discharge is doing something more like chemically speeding up the aging of the color. Black ages by fading, and white ages by yellowing, and vaginal discharge just speeds up both.

(figuring out how to say that without going down the acid/base rabbithole was an interesting challenge)

everything bleaches to a yellowish tone- like when you bleach your hair, it’s yellow/brassy blonde. both colors are bleaching
