How to wash Reusable Pads

There are what I recommend to have

  1. Bar soap
  2. Container
  3. Baking Soda
  4. vinegar

Here is what I am doing

  1. When you remove pad form your underwear, put it in your bathtub or show booth as it is
  2. While you are taking a shower, water will pre-wash it, you can wiggle it to remove blood
  3. When red mark turns into pink mark on it then rub your bar soap on it and wiggle again (you don’t have to hard, just let pads observe soap)
  4. Put it in the container until you are ready for 1st batch (you don’t have to wash every time and soaking in the water is help to clean)
  5. Put batch of pads into washer with backing soda and vinegar (1:1)- detergent is optional, but I recommend amount of penny size
  6. Wash it as white/cotton mode
  7. Dry as white/cotton mode (I don’t use fabric softener)
