Before using the sanitary pad for the first time, wash it at 30 degrees Celsius.
Once the pad has been used, pre-soak the pad in cold water with salt immediately, with the used side of
the pad facing downwards, to lift heavy stains. Leave to soak for a minimum of 30 minutes. Avoid using
hot water as this causes the stain to set.
Then wash the pad at 30 degrees Celsius, preferably on a wash cycle of at least one hour. Avoid using fabric
softener as this will reduce the absorption of the pad – wash with powder only.
Wash the pad within 24 hours of using it to ensure the removal of all stains.
These pads can be washed in the same cycle as other items of clothing – they do not need to be washed
Once washed, air dry the pad – do not tumble dry.
