Why do my pads/pants have bleach marks?
Sunday, 18 July 2021
You may on occasion notice that your pad or underwear have an area of bleaching. You might be feeling very confused by this as you have followed the manufacturers guidelines and not used any harsh chemicals or bleach in your washing.
Please be reassured it is very natural and is caused by your own vagina.
Your vaginal discharge is naturally acidic, at different times through the month it may vary in pH and can sometimes cause bleaching of your underwear and pads. Although the marks mean your pads/pants do not look at good as new, they will still contue to work and there is nothing to worry about. It is just your body doing it's thing and is a sign of a health vagina.
If you do regular get bleaching marks then you may prefer to avoid black or coloured pants/pads. Instead we would suggest you use white pads which will not show any bleach marks.
