Congratulations on making the switch to reusable menstrual products. You’re well on your way to saving the planet.
To wear your CSP, simply place your pad fleece down (this is usually the black side) into your underwear and use the snaps to secure.
You can change your CSP as often as you feel comfortable, but this is just as regularly as you would with a disposable product.
All of our CSP are handmade, with flannel extending into the wings, providing a little extra protection against leaks into the wings. There’s a funky material called Zorb inside which is super absorbent, then your pad is backed with fleece which is water resistant, then to top it all off we use jersey knit fabric on the top. This is your pretty side which goes against your skin.
When you’ve worn your pad, dry store them in a wet bag or a lidded bucket. You can store them like this, dirty for 3 days.
After 3 days, throw them into the washing machine on their own and give them a good rinse.
After the rinse you can add towels or other laundry to your machine and pop your pads on a wash, up to 60 degrees (we recommend a 30 or 40 wash, only wash at 60 if you’ve been experiencing a fungal infection.) Do not use fabric softener, this WILL decrease the absorbency of your CSP.
Once your CSP is washed, we recommend you line or air dry. The sun is brilliant for any stains.
Once dry, pop them away for your next cycle.
