It’s not that complicated - our pads were made to fit into your regular laundry routine. Just rinse in cool water, then wash and dry with your regular laundry. As with any garment, wash with like colors.
A few tips:
- Avoid bleach or fabric softener - they'll decrease the performance and lifespan of your pads.
- Don’t leave your pads soaking in water - this can lead to bacterial growth and mold.
- Avoid frequent use of Hydrogen Peroxide and Oxygen bleach products - they might be great for removing blood stains but they’re also super harsh on natural fibers. Instead, try our handy Stain Eraser.
- If you choose to hand wash, use only a very small amount of a detergent specifically formulated for washing clothes and be sure to rinse well — don't use concentrated soaps like Dr. Bronner's or other hand and dish soaps, as these can leave behind residue that will reduce the effectiveness of your pads.
