Minksie Storage Dry Bag for Washable Sanitary Pads

The storage dry bag is just what you need to store your reusable sanitary pads in.

This bag has 2 compartments, 1 for clean and 1 for dirty pads.

Our bags are ideal for storing your used sanitary pads, or fresh clean pads, and are the perfect eco-friendly sanitary pad accessory to hang in your bathroom or take away with you for your daily outings, or even travels. They are the perfect bathroom accessory for your fantastic reusable period friends! 

They are the perfect size of 30x40cm, which means they're ideal for holding up to 15 pads comfortably (depending on the size of pad). The bags are also waterproof and zipper tight, so you'll have no concerns of any leaks onto the fabric. 

Our range of Reusable Sanitary Pads

Looking for some pads to go with your bag/s, why not try one of these options: Minksie Reusable Sanitary Towel Set, or if you are looking for a Reusable/Washable Period Starter Kit that has it all or maybe you would prefer to decide how many Single Reusable Period Pads you buy? 

Or if you'd prefer a smaller bag, why not buy our Mini bag that will fit perfectly into your handbag or backpack 😁

(WE'RE 100% FREE OF PLASTIC & USE ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING)

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,

Storage bag

Excellent product! However I roared with laughter when they arrived because I thought they would be small enough to put in your handbag. They are huge, well made! Must be my mistake, great as swim or gym bags though! 😀

Moominz wet bag

Well made bag but far too big. The bright design/ patterns are nice but make them too noticeable for my liking. I would prefer something more subtle & discreet. There should be at least an option for some plain pads & plain bags & smaller bags too. I obviously misread the information & bought 2 thinking one could be placed in the washing machine with used pads. However, the bag is only for storing dirty or clean pads, you then have to empty them out to wash in machine.
