Should I microwave my underwear to help ward off yeast infections?

I'm posting this anonymously, since I'm feeling very, very sheepish about even asking. I'm getting over yet another yeast infection and I'm doing all the things I should (probiotics, sleep, going commando regularly, etc.). When I mentioned this to my friend, she solemnly told me that I need to wash and microwave all my underwear (when it is still wet from the wash). I find this hard to believe, but at this point I'm willing to do whatever it takes, if it will help. She's a lot more hippy-dippy than I am (acupuncture, Chinese herbs, etc.), but sometimes the hippies get it right. So tell me, Mefites, should I nuke my panties?
