4 Tips to use your eco-friendly pads correctly

You have probably heard about eco-friendly sanitary pads. Unlike disposable sanitary pads, eco-friendly pads are made of absorbent fabric and fibers that can be washed and reused as many times as you want.

Take a look at the tips we give you here; they will be of great help so you can use your reusable sanitary pads correctly.

Tips to use eco-friendly sanitary pads correctly.

1.    Using these pads is easier than you think

Placing an eco-friendly sanitary pad is a very simple task, thanks to the wings and buttons it has.

Similar to disposable pads, you just have to unfold the two lateral wings and gently wrap around your underwear to attach it.

2.    Always use them with tight underwear

Eco-friendly sanitary pads are not completely fixed because they do not have an adhesive layer that sticks to underwear. Thus, they might move a little if you do some specific activities.

But, don’t worry! There is nothing you should worry about. There will not be any accidental leaks.

One recommendation is to wear tight underwear during your menstrual days. This will make you feel really comfortable and safe.

3.    How often you should change your eco-friendly sanitary pads


Each body is unique; hence, you will need to change your eco-friendly pad according to your kind of menstrual flow.

If your menstruation is heavy, you will have to change your pad at least every 3 hours; this is, you will need about 6 reusable pads per day.

On the other hand, if your menstruation is light, you will not need to change it as often; every 6 hours will be enough. In total, you will need 2 to 3 reusable pads per day.

4.    Wash your eco-friendly sanitary pads correctly

  1. Rinse

The most recommendable thing is to rinse your eco-friendly pad as soon as you change it. It will make it easier for you to remove the blood because it is not completely dry yet.

  1. Wash

Whether you wash your pad by hand or washing machine, make sure you use gentle soap; if it is biodegradable, much better. Avoid laundry softeners and stain removers at all costs.

  1. Dry

Once you have washed your eco-friendly sanitary pad, you can dry it. The most recommendable thing to do is to sundry; if you use a dryer, there is a risk the fabric will start to lose its absorption capacity.

Using an eco-friendly sanitary pad is nothing to be ashamed of. You are taking care of the environment and most importantly, you are taking care of yourself.

Hello everyone, I am from Wembley, Britain. I want to write this testimony to tell others and thank Dr. Odunga for what he has done for me. The first 12 years of my marriage I had 5 miscarriages and I was called all sorts of names by my mother-in-law and this made my marriage life very hectic and a burden of sorrow. I contacted Dr. Odunga for help and I will say that he is a very strong and honest man and he indeed helped me solve my problem. I saw his email in a testimony and I contacted him, little did I know it would be the end of all my problems. After 2 days of contact, I received a fertility herb and he told me to use it. The herb worked and my husband even loved me more and bought me expensive things. One afternoon, I went to a nearby hospital and came back home with the positive result of my pregnancy and after 9 months I gave birth to a baby boy. Ever since I contacted Dr. Odunga, my story has been different. I have 3 children at present and I am very happy in my marriage. Please, contact him at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats App him +2348167159012 to help you too
