    How to care for your reusable bamboo sanitary pads

    Minksie reusable, sustainable sanitary pads

    The days of fearing a rogue adhesive wing are over, and now you can lounge in the luxury of our soft sanitary pads!

    Here at Minksie we’re passionate about protecting the environment, and we’re so glad that you’ve taken another step in making our precious planet healthier. Below we are going to let you know why purchasing our product is so great, and how to make you pads last for as long as possible!

     How to wear your pad/s

    Place the pad inside your knickers with the pattern side down, charcoal side up facing your vagina. Press the press studs together underneath. (second press stud is recommended otherwise it can be loose and move around a lot.) If you need more guidance, check out our video on youtube at the following link: How to wear your reusable sanitary pad

    Caring For Your Reusable Menstrual Pads

    The amazing thing about your sustainably made Minksie pads is that you can use them in the same way as disposable ones. Depending on your flow you may need to change them between one to six times a day, but you’ll know when they need changing as the material will begin to feel wet against your skin.

    You can either hand wash or machine wash your pad/s.

    • If you hand wash, first rinse your pad/s in cold water to remove as much blood as possible. Depending on which you'd prefer, you can either wash it with hand wash detergent, eco egg or put a few drops of tea tree oil into the rinsing water can act as a sanitiser and keep them smelling fresh (but never apply the oil directly onto your skin) and rinse thoroughly, ensuring no blood or urine is still coming out, then squeeze and hang to dry.
    • To machine wash, you can either add in washing with other laundry, like you would your pants, if you had previously leaked through or you can wash separately. We recommend you wash on a low temp wash (20C-40C). You can either use an eco egg or detergent but make sure your detergent does not contain fabric softener as it will alter the pad's absorbency.

    Washing Detergent: You can either use an eco egg or try to avoid detergents containing bleach, zeolite, fabric softeners and more than 5% soap content. We know this is a lot to check for but it will help to extend the life of your beloved pads, and it’s better for your skin. Bio-powders are probably the best!

    Softeners: Generally, it is best not to use them! But if you think your pad needs a little softening then ½ cup of white vinegar should do the trick (you could add a few drops of essential oil too. However, oils are not great for super sensitive skin types)

    • After washing reshape the pad and leave to dry, but don’t put them in the tumble dryer as this will damage them!

     

    Tips and Tricks

    So that your experience with your new pads is as easy and enjoyable as possible we’ve provided a few more tips and tricks! 

    • Find a cute bag or box to store your pads in, this will make them easy to find and great to travel with- fantastic when you want to use your pads on the go!
    • Always wash your pad as soon as you have finished using it, this will minimise any risk of infection and nasty smells
    • A handy storage trick to make them as compact as possible! Fold the front and back over each other and then clip the two side wings together over the top. This will make a small square bundle that is great for fitting discreetly into a handbag if desired!
    • Wear relatively close-fitting underwear to avoid your pad moving around too much, although our pads should work with most underwear!

    We hope you think that Minksie sanitary pads are as great as we think they are! With small, but significant changes, like swapping disposable for reusable pads we hope to leave a positive influence on the planet, and not a world filled with plastic sanitary products! 

     Kind regards,

    Great Addition

    Have previously bought a set of longer pads and loved them. This was a great addition with the new matching small wet bag and smaller pads for lighter days. Smaller pads were a bit trickier to position properly as they moved around a bit more on me at first, but a bit of trial and error was worth it to keep using them. Fully prepared now!

    One Very Happy Family

    My Granddaughter has been using Minksie pads for her periods for nearly a year after I tried them for bladder weakness and they were no good for me, so I passed them to her and she loves them (heavy flow type) and she hasn’t used anything else since she first tried them. My daughter who has a very heavy flow uses a cup and was going on a working holiday, so needed a back up in case she flooded. I treated her to one set of three pads in a starter kit and my other two granddaughters to two sets of starter kits each as they were on a 50% off offer. My daughter wore a pad on her 8 hour coach journey, as a back up to her cup, and was so glad she did as the worst happened, but she was dry and secure even though she had flooded. She wore Minksie pads as a back up for the rest of her period as she was doing a lot of manual work and was glad she had them after a few overflows of her cup. She can’t wear normal towels or period pants as they make her very sore but she was fine with Minksie heavy flow pads. She phoned me to tell me how pleased and surprised she was as to how absorbent and comfortable they were, and how easy they were to care for even though she is off grid on a farm with no running water or electricity in her caravan. My youngest granddaughter is probably going to start her periods very soon, so I got hers so she can start her period journey using Minksie pads, she has put some in the bottom of her bag just in case. Their family of four women are now all using reusable Minksie pads and are pleased with how they perform, that they are comfortable, and that they are easy to wash and dry.
