What it is: Oko Pad, Long, Single
How to Use: This reusable menstrual pad is completely waterproof and offers great protection for your period’s light flow days or against light bladder leakages. Made of 2 layers of absorbent hemp, it is thin, comfortable and efficient. Like disposable pads, the Öko-Pads have wings to hold the pad in place, secured by a thin snap at the crotch. The fabric that comes into contact with the skin is made of natural fibres that haven't been bleached or dyed. The risks of irritations, allergy and infection are therefore reduced.
The Öko-Pad will not lose shape nor shrink when laundered. The colourful patterns on the pad backings add a touch of beauty!
Tip: It is estimated that each woman throws out 10,000 menstrual products in her lifetime. One Öko-Pad can last at least six years. Think of the savings once you stop buying disposable menstrual products every month!
Care: Put your Öko-Pads in a laundry bucket or breathable bag. When you’re ready to wash them, put them in the washing machine for a short cold cycle, with laundry detergent and (optional) sodium percarbonate (chlorine-free stain remover, maximum 2 tbsp). Then do a regular wash cycle with cold water, adding your other laundry. To dry your Öko-Pads, you can put them in the dryer or hang dry (the sun is an excellent stain remover and is also antibacterial). Store in a clean and dry place. That’s it!
