And like the other girls have said, it hasn't killed me yet, so I'm not too concerned lol

Hmm... I think I wash mine every 3-4 weeks - but I'm off to wash them right now after reading this (that, and to move my toothbrush to another room alltogether!!)

In France the machines ask you to chose between "cotton", "synthetic", "delicate"... I have no idea what "permanent press" might mean

Any time you transfer underwear from the washer to the dryer, you’re getting E. coli on your hands. Just one soiled undergarment can spread bacteria to the whole load and machine.
Reduce the risk: Run your washer at 150 degrees (you can check the temperature of your washing-machine water with a candy thermometer) and wash whites with bleach (not the color-safe type; it doesn’t pack the same punch), which kills 99.9 percent of bugs. Transfer wet laundry to the dryer quickly so germs don’t multiply, wash underwear separately (there’s about a gram of feces in every pair of dirty underwear) and dry for at least 45 minutes. Wash your hands after laundering.
