Tuesday, 13 July 2021
Washing your period underwear could not be simpler. it is very similar to washing cloth sanitary pads. As with all items of clothing please check the manufacturers care guidelines to ensure you stay within your warranty and to protect the longevity of your undies.
Here is a basic washing guide:
- When you remove your used underwear rinse them thoroughly with cold water till the water runs clear.
- Either pop them in your normal washing or store them in a wet bag until wash day.
- Wash at 30/40deg. You can use your normal detergent but avoid fabric conditioners
- Line dry your period pants, they will dry quicker if you turn them inside out.
Most companies will advise you to avoid harsh chemicals, fabric conditioner and tumble drying, as eventually it will lead to a shorter life span and issues with performance.
