Washable Menstrual Pad

The washable menstrual pads should not be cleaned with chlorine or other harsh chemicals or the fibers of the fabric will weaken

  1. A mixture of white vinegar or a few drops of tea tree oil and water is effective in removing odor and infection or germ traces from these pads
  2. To get rid of the stains make sure to rinse them in cold water instead of hot water which leads to setting the stain
  3. For the persistent stains baking soda can be used while washing or make use of oxygen based cleaners
  4. Do not treat the pads with fabric softener as it will leave them less absorbent
