There are so many reasons why you should quit the usage of disposable pad. There are environmental, health, financial and many other reasons to choose reusable pads. It is estimates that the average woman throws away 16,900 pieces of used menstrual products in her lifetime. Unless you buy organic cotton pads, disposable sanitary pad mostly contains pesticides, petrochemical products, and/or irritating synthetic chemicals. Tampons can cause toxic shock syndrome, which I was surprised to learn can be deadly even if you use them according to the instructions. And again, there’s the cost factor. Disposable sanitary pads are usually expensive because they will require you to buy a pack or more for every month. Even if the amount you spend on sanitary pad is not much, calculate the expenditure for approximately 35 years.
It depends on how often you’re willing to wash. I’d say the minimum is probably three — one to wear, one you are drying, and one clean one to change into. Since cloth pads can take a while to dry, especially in a bathroom, we have packaged enough to keep you happy all through your menstrual period. You can fold up one for your purse; no one will recognize that the small thing is pad.
Pad-Up washable sanitary pad does not leak. Our company offers washable pads backed with water resistant polar fleece. Our customers haven’t had leakage issues.
After using the pads, soak in cold water for 5-10 minutes, and then wash the pads in clean water with soap or detergent. Dry the pads in direct sunlight and/or in a well ventilated place. Allow to dry completely before-re-used. When exposed to direct sunlight, pads will dry in approximately 2 hours. Three things are very important to keep in mind when using the Pad-Up menstrual kits: First of all, you cannot use bleach to clean the pads. Secondly, you should use cold water to clean the pads, not hot water. And lastly, you shouldn’t iron the pads as this will harm the layers inside the pad, which affects the absorbency.
Most cloth pads have snaps, so you can fold them up into tidy little rectangles (back side facing out!) and put them in your pouch bag which is also enclosed in the menstrual kit until you get home. They might stain a little if you can’t get them in water for hours, but soaking longer in detergent really work wonders.
Years! Pad-Up sanitary wares hold up beautifully through multiple washings and wringing. We expect them to last several years for you.
