Easy Care and Use Guide for TCS-eco Cloth Pads
Simple Steps for Cloth Pad Care: Caring for your TCS-eco cloth pads is straightforward and easy. While you'll likely develop your own routine over time, here are some basic guidelines to get you started:
Washing and Storing Your Cloth Pads:
- Storage: Keep your used pads in a wet bag or other storage container of your choice. You can either rinse them in cold water until the water runs clear or store them dry until ready to wash.
- Washing: For stubborn stains, soak the pads in cold water with a stain remover. Remember, washing at hot temperatures can set stains and odors into the fabric. Wash your pads at 40°C or lower with dark clothes, and avoid using fabric conditioners.
- Drying: Avoid drying your cloth pads on direct heat or at high temperatures in a tumble dryer.
Using Your Cloth Pads:
- Water Hardness: Be aware that the hardness of your water may affect the pads.
- Correct Placement: Pads should be worn with the stitching facing up and the grippy fleece side against your underwear. Tighter fitting pants help keep the pads in place.
- Superior Absorbency: All TCS-eco pads are designed to be more absorbent than disposable equivalents.
