Soak the pads. Use soap and wash well. Squeeze out water for faster drying and dry out in sun. Fold and store in a dry safe place.

No, don’t bleach the pads

Reusable sanitary pads are just as healthy and safe as disposable ones and women need not have any concerns in this regard, in terms of cleanliness.

Most reusable menstrual pads are made to last for five years, but many women report that their pads have lasted much longer! Washable cloth pads are much more economical when compared to the cost of disposable products over your lifetime.

WASH. After you've worn your pad and you're ready to wash them, it's always a good idea to pre-rinse them with natural soap or cold water to help prevent staining. Soak the pads and ring them dry until the water runs clear.

With the right maintenance, reusable products are just as sanitary. For cloth pads, most recommend soaking them overnight in water (you can add hydrogen peroxide or tea tree oil to sanitize further) and toss them in the wash for a hot water cycle. For menstrual cups, it's even easier.

In the case of pads, you decide what works best for you as there isn't the risk of toxic shock syndrome. You can wear a pad overnight or for six hours or more during the day. If you have a heavy flow, you will need to change it more often and bring along supplies when you are away from home.

For a start… after you find your container of stinky pads, give them a good rinse out until the water is clear. Perhaps then give them a soak in some water for a 15 – 20 minutes and dry in direct Sun light.

The material is the same or similar to that used for cloth diapers. These menstrual cloths are generally safe to use and many women seem to like them. Anecdotally, over the years many patients of mine have reported using reusable cloth menstrual pads and have been very satisfied.

All pads have care labels but generally the rule is to wash at 40deg as higher temperatures can “set” a stain. Don't use any fabric softener. Pads can be added to normal household laundry do a separate rinse and laundry.

The resulting “rotten” smell from bacteria mixed with menstrual flow shouldn't be strong enough for others to detect. You might be able to control such odour by changing pads frequently, especially during heavy-flow days. A “rotten” smell can occur when a pad is left for too long.

Granted, reusables have a larger initial cost, but they last much, much longer. With proper care, cloth pads can last for years. Compare this to the disposable that has a lifespan of a few hours before it's thrown away, forcing you to buy more and more -- all of them ending up in a landfill.
