Reusable cloth pads will last for years, eliminating hundreds of kilograms of waste from landfill.
Wear the pad with your favourite granny knickers, as they seem to support and hold the pads best.
Simply place the pad over the bottom of your knickers and click the snap closures shut.
Adjust the pad to suit your movement - i.e. sometimes they need to be a bit forward if you're walking around, middle position if you're sitting and further to the back if you are wearing one overnight.
IMPORTANT: Please remember to wash pads once or twice before use, as this increases their absorbency.
Pads and machine washable - cold wash only.
Hand wash the purse and zip pouch.
Do not tumble dry.
In my mid 30s I developed a sensitivity to disposable pads and has taken me a many years to find a reliable reusable pad that doesn't ride. Naturally by Meg pads are my little secret to managing my visit from Aunt Flo.
I really love the fact that you actually 'bleed' on the patterned side of the pad. What's the point of fancy pads if you don't get to see them when you pull your knickers down. The pattern also helps to hide any staining!
If you're out and about we recommend a purse pouch to keep your clean pad in, and then when you need to swap, the used one can be stored until you get home. you can also fold the top and bottom of the pad in, pull the wings over and clip them shut to keep any mess inside the pad.
I simply rinse in cold water to remove blood or discharge and soak in a bucket, with a mild laundry detergent, and wash them all together every couple of days or at the end of the week, ensure you use cold water to not set any stains.
