How do I care for my reusable sanitary pads?
These pads are easy care, so can be gentle machine washed. Line drying is ideal, because sunlight is antibacterial and fades stains, so line dry when possible. If necessary, tumble dry on low.
After use you can:
- Rinse in cold water straight away, fold up and clip together the wings and store damp until washed (this helps stains not to set). Or just rinse and throw straight into the washing machine.
- If you can’t rinse it immediately, clip together wings and store damp in a wet bag or bucket– this means stains are less likely to set than if the pad has already dried. Rinse when you can and wash.
No soaking necessary! Always rinse in COLD water, as hot water will set stains. Wash on a normal cold machine wash.
Please do not bleach or use fabric softener – this will affect the absorbency of your pads. (It would pay to check your washing powder doesn’t contain added fabric softener – some do!) Cotton becomes more absorbent after a few washes. Dry pads as soon as possible, and never use a damp pad.
Note: This pad has a cotton core, so it will dry more quickly than pads with a bamboo core. However, as bamboo absorbs three times more than cotton, it is a great option for night time or when you need that extra protection.
