Washable sanitary pads for teenage girls and petite women
- Teenage girls with medium to light flow.
- Some petite adult women also prefer this size of washable pads.
The pack includes
- Saukhyam Essential Bases - 2
- Saukhyam Essential Inserts - 3
Both washable sanitary pad pieces (bases and inserts) have 6 gms of banana fiber and can be used as individual pad pieces or together. The base has a leak-proof layer and two straps on either ends. The insert can be slipped through these straps when needing extra protection.
When ready to make a complete switch to washable pads for periods, one can invest in additional pad pieces.
Caring for your washable sanitary pads
Saukhyam Washable Pads are easy to wash and dry:
- Soak soiled reusable cotton pads in tap water (do not use hot water as that will set the stains) for about 5 minutes. Squeeze soaked pads gently.
- If hand washing, apply some washing soap, and rub gently. Do not use a brush. Rinse with tap water.
- These reusable cotton pads are washable in a machine.
- Sun dry your washable pads for periods by hanging them on a clothesline. If drying indoors, then take care that the pad is not hung in a dark or poorly ventilated space.
- The pads can be dried in a dryer. Recommended settings are high heat for insert and low heat for the base piece.
