We recommend you wash your EcoPads before you start using them. This way, you will ensure that they start performing to the best of their abilities from day one.
Rinse or soak in cold water during 30 minutes before either hand washing or using a washing machine at a maximum temperature of 40º C.
Stretch your wet EcoPad to prevent shrinkage and air dry it for best results. Tumble drying on low heat is a good option as well.
There are three different day sizes. "S" for light flows, "M" for medium flows and "L" for heavy flows.
If you have a super heavy flow or need extra protection for the night, we have a "Night Pad" that guarantees up to 12 hours of full protection.
EcoPads are made with sustainable Bamboo Charcoal which is known for neutralizing odours.
We suggest a minimum of 6 pads to change, wash and dry. Most women have an average of 12-18 pads. There are a few factors that influence the number of pads needed such as the intensity of your flow and how often you wash and dry your pads.
The plain uni-colored (black or white) fabric faces you and the patterned leakproof side faces your underwear.
EcoPads have wings which fold around your underwear and are clipped together to ensure that the pad stays in place.
EcoPads can last up to 5-8 hours, depending on your flow. However, every woman is different and you will easily learn when it's time to change your pad once you start using them.
No, the back of the pad (the patterned one) is made with leakproof PUL. However, just like any other pad, you will need to change after several hours to avoid unpleasant surprises according to your flow.
You can carry your EcoPads on the Free Eco Bag that is included with all of our Packs. It is great to store clean pads and to keep the used ones when away from home.
