Pads and liners
There’s a huge choice of reusable pads and liners on the market from big brands to local businesses and sellers on Etsy. They are a shaped pad with wings that popper around your pants similar to a disposable period pad.
Don’t use fabric softener, as this can affect the absorbency of the product over time.
They come in a huge range of designs, materials and sizes from liners to super maxi. Along with period pants, they are a great option for those who don’t want to use an internal product.
How long can I wear reusable pads for?
This really varies depending on your flow and the absorbency you choose but will be similar to disposable pads. Most people will probably need to change around every four to five hours. Many brands sell wet bags so you can pop used pads in there until you get home.
How do I wash them?
Simply rinse under the cold tap, then add them to your usual dark wash on a 30 to 40 degree cycle. Some brands recommend washing on a cold cycle instead. Always check the leaflet or manufacturer’s website for instructions.
Don’t use fabric softener, as this can affect the absorbency of the product over time. Using a delicates bag can also help make them last even longer. Let them air dry before using them again.
