How to wash and care for cloth menstrual pads
Washing and caring for cloth pads is super easy. If you're interested in making the switch from disposable pads to reusable cloth pads then washing should not be a deterrence. Cloth pads are durable and easy to care for. Cloth pad washing is so simple in fact, that we have a hard time even creating a whole blog post dedicated to the topic!
If you're outside your home then soiled cloth pads should be stored in your wetbag until you return. Remove your cloth pads and rinse with cold water. Wring them out and toss into your laundry basket or back inside your wetbag or cloth pad storage bag until washing day.
Cloth pads can be washed in cool or warm temperature water and tumble dried in your dryer. Cloth pads can be washed alone, with your regular clothing laundry or with your bathroom towels if you prefer.
What to avoid when washing your cloth pads:
~ Dryer Sheets or Fabric Softener
~ The ‘Sanitize Cycle’ on your washing machine, if it has one.
