Reusable sanitary pad
The average woman uses up to 260 tampons/sanitary pads per year. This is up to 1,300 units within 5 years. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you do not need to buy, use and trash them?
Why prefer wool + cotton sanitary pads?
- they are plastic free;
- they let the skin breathe;
- they are leak-proof due to the wool layer;
- they support your health and do not contain chemicals that are dangerous;
- they do not run out and are always available at home when needed;
- with each use, one disposable pad is not thrown away and nature thanks you;
- you make one spending, but you use it for years and save a large amount of money.
Our sanitary pad is ca 25cm long and has medium absorbency. It consists of two parts - an organic wool base layer to prevent leaks and an organic cotton pad that is attached to it with snaps.
Since you can reuse the wool layer several times without washing in between and you need them less than sanitary pads, you can also buy organic cotton sanitary pads without the wool layer.
How to use?
Before use, it is preferred but not essencial to soak the wool layer in lanolin solution, wash the cotton pad. Now the product is ready for use.
Use a wider cut, well-fitting panties to keep the sanitary pad in place.
Attach the black wool layer with two snaps under the pad for leak protection. After that, fasten the wings around the panties with snaps. On days with a lighter flow, when greater leak protection is not necessary, you can also use a sanitary pad without the black wool layer.
After use, separate the two layers (be careful when opening the snaps, please do not pull heavily), wash the cotton pad clean, air the woolen layer. When the layers are dry, they are ready to be used again.
Leakproof layer - 100% GOTS certified organic wool
Care: Gentle wash every few weeks at 30 degrees by hand or in a washing machine with a wool program with a special wool wash detergent. Always wash the wool layer after the end of the menstrual cycle. You need a new lanoline soaking, when the wool layer is no longer leakproof or the dried and aired wool layer smells unpleasant.
Absorbent layers - organic cotton flannel (GOTS), organic cotton jersey (95% cotton, 5% elastane) and organic cotton/hemp blend (GOTS).
Care: Wash with cold water immediately after use. Then leave it to wait for the main wash. Wash with the cotton program up to 60 degrees. In case of stains, use bile soap or a stain remover or place the pad in the sun for a couple of hours. After a good wash, it is pigment, not dirt, and does not prevent use.
