How to wash my cloth pad?
- Wash before first use
- Soaking in cold water first is essential for removing blood from all materials, not just cloth pads. It’s important to avoid hot water during the first rinse, because it sets blood stains. Leave for minimum 30 minutes.
- Facing the used side downward facilitates the soaking routine. This is a great tip gained from user experience: The blood “falls” out of the fabric to the bottom of the water bucket, as opposed to setting deeper into the pad if soaked facing upward. Try it out and notice the difference!
- Rinsing until the (cold) water runs clear after the soaking process, will clean most of the blood out of the fabric.
- Washing with soap further helps remove residues, especially to wash out the fat-based blood components. You can wash your pad by hand, or in the washing machine along with other clothes.
- Pulling the wet cloth pad into shape helps to keep its form and avoid cotton shrinkage.
- Thorough drying is important. You can do this on a clothesline, or in a tumble dryer on low heat.
- Drying in direct sunlight can help prevent staining and is a natural sanitizer.
