Why do female dogs eat dirty underwear and how do you get them to stop?

Any dog might eat dirty underwear - or clean for that matter including socks, t-shirts etc.
They do it because it smells like you and in the case of underwear the added attraction of waste materials naturally appeals to them.
The best way to control it is to not ever let them have access as the chewing and eating of cloth can lead to deadly intestinal blockage.
