How do I wear my cloth pads?
Much like regular disposables. Instead of sticky bottoms, these have a button clasp. You clasp them onto your underwear. These can shift about (sometimes) and depends on your crotch size, or how loose your underwear is. I recommend that your underwear are always “comfortably” snug, and or, you can always use a great tip and wear shorts / tights with your underwear while menstruating. I personally love the feel of them against my tummy, since I bloat.
How do I wash my pads?
Just rinse in cool water, then wash and dry with your regular laundry. As with any garment, wash with like colors.
A few tips:
- Avoid bleach or fabric softener – they’ll decrease the performance and lifespan of your pads.
- Don’t leave your pads soaking in water – this can lead to bacterial growth and mold.
- Avoid frequent use of Hydrogen Peroxide and Oxygen bleach products – they might be great for removing blood stains but they’re also super harsh on natural fibers.
