  • FAQ

    Do they smell?

    No. The fabric is breathable which allows moisture to evaporate. Less moisture means fewer bacteria to produce smells. As long as you change often enough, this should not be an issue. However bear in mind every woman also has her own natural scent which may be more noticeable to you at certain times of the month.

    Are they bulkier?

    This depends on the pad. Our normal pads are no bulkier or thicker than a disposable pad, and are no more noticeable when you wear them.

    How many will I need?

    This depends on your own flow and cycle. In general its recommended between 6 to 12 day pads and 3 – 6 night pads if required.

    Will they leak?

    Like disposable pads you will need to change your pad before it gets saturated. After a couple of cycles of using them you will become used to how often you need to change your own pad. However if you need a recommendation for normal flow you should look at changing every 3 to 4 hours.

    Are they comfy?

    Yes! They are soft and breathable, they don’t contain any heat/moisture trapping plastics and no nasty chemicals or bleaches to leave you feeling irritated.

    Which way do I wear them?

    Soft side up, printed side down!

    How to change my pad when I am away from home?

    They can be folded over and snapped closed. You can then either pop them in a bag or we also supply PUL fold-over pouches which you can keep them in until you get home.

    Can I wear them swimming?

    Unfortunately, no, they are too absorbent!

    Should I wash them before first use?

    Yes. Wash once to help with absorbency.

    How do I wash them?

    Wash at maximum 40 degrees. we recommend washing out with cold water before machine washing to minimise the chance of staining. Do not bleach. Do not use fabric softener as it can affect absorbency. Do not wash on a hot cycle as this can will set stains. May be tumble dried.

    Are reusable pads better for the environment?

    Single use pads can contribute to 150kg of landfill waste per person in their lifetime. Disposable tampons, pads and applicators are also polluting waterways and harming marine wildlife, according to Nick Mallos, director of the Trash Free Seas program at Ocean Conservancy. Mallos said the non-profit collected 27,938 used tampons and applicators on beaches around the world in a single day in 2015.
