I’ve been getting a lot of questions about incontinence pads versus menstrual pads. Thi...
These pads are great for: moderate urinary incontinence, post partum needs, women who leak off the sides, women who experience heavy flow, women who are prone to yeast infections.
The top: bamboo charcoal fleece has nano particles that inhibit bacterial growth and help prevent yeast infections and odour. Since it is an exposed core, it helps stop sideways leaks and adds to the absorption level.
The core: this core sits on top of the pad unlike hidden core pads. Under the grey fleece which touches your skin is a layer of thirsty Zorb and one layer of cotton batting. Under this is different cotton woven fabric patterns followed by the bamboo sherpa bonded to the polyurethane laminate, which is hidden inside. Snapped width at the narrowest point is 2.5”.
The backing: under the cotton woven layer is the water proof polyurethane laminate or PUL. This is a very dependable layer that will not let fluid pass through. The worst that could happen is the core will fill up and leaks would occur from the pad being over saturated. These pads are the closest to a disposable that you can get. They soak up, wash up and are ready to go after a cycle in the dryer.
The purple tag indicates light flow
Red tag indicates moderate flow
Blue tag indicates heavy flow
Orange tag indicates heavy flow in a longer or overnight length (12-16”).
Wash: when out of the house, you can store used pads without rinsing in a pad wrapper until you get home. Alternatively, rinse pads in cold water immediately after use and store in wet bag (see our laundry, care and storage section) until washing day. Use low residue detergent or soap nuts on cold or warm water and follow with medium to high dryer, no fabric softener.
Recommend: Lift all natural stain stick from MilkHoneySoapery on Etsy. This will keep your pads looking beautiful and can even be used on any other stains in your household!
