Things to avoid while washing cloth pads

-Avoid using too much detergent as, if not properly rinsed, it can build-up and affect the absorbency of your pad.

-Also keep away from fabric softeners or whiteners as these too can inhibit the absorbency of your cloth pads.

-Similarly, avoid the use of any other soap except those recommended for textile washing.

-Bleach is also a no-no for washing cloth pads. Why? Because bleach wears your fabrics down.

-Vinegar is to be avoided too, as just like bleach, it can also break down fibres and shorten your pad’s lifespan.

-Ironing should be avoided as the high-temperature damages the fleece lining used for making cloth pads.

Caring for cloth pads if you have an RTI

You can use a cloth pad if you are suffering from a reproductive tract infection or urinary tract infection.

Water-based cream to fight the infection can also be applied while you are using cloth pads as these don’t harm or spoil your pad.

Spreading the pads out to dry in the sun becomes all the more important at this time.

Sanitizing pads

This is not really necessary as soap and the sunrays kill the bacteria in stained pads.

To sum it up, your cloth pad is hygienic if it is cared for hygienically. When cloth pads are washed well, dried in direct sunlight and stored properly, they are perfectly hygienic and long-lasting. Do follow our simple wash steps and have a happy, eco-period!
