Caring for Cloth Pads: A Simple Guide

Taking care of your cloth pads is a straightforward process, and here are the basics to get you started. As you become more accustomed to using these products, you may develop your own personalised technique.

Washing and Storage:

  • Store your cloth pads in a wet bag or another suitable storage option.
  • After use, rinse them in cold water until the water runs clear, or you can store them dry until it's time for a cold wash in the washing machine.
  • For stubborn stains, consider soaking the pads in cold water with a stain remover. Avoid using hot water as it can set odours and stains into the fabric.
  • When it's time to wash, opt for a gentle cycle at 40°C or lower, and avoid using fabric softeners.
  • Never dry your cloth pads on direct heat or at high temperatures in a tumble dryer.

How to Use and Key Information:

  • Different water hardness levels may affect the performance of the pads.
  • Wear the pads with the stitching facing up and the grippy fleece against your underwear. Wearing tighter-fitting pants can help keep the pads securely in place.
  • It's important to note that all TCS-eco pads are more absorbent than their disposable counterparts.
  • By choosing to reuse, you've made a significant impact, preventing a minimum of 2860 single-use items from ending up in landfills and saving approximately £625. Congratulations on your eco-friendly choice!
