Wash & Care: FAQs

We are committed to providing sustainable, eco-friendly, and comfortable period underwear that is also leak-free. We wanted to share some of the FAQs from our clients that could help with how to best take care of your period underwear to ensure longevity and effectiveness.

Here are the most asked questions from our customers:

  • How often should I wash my period underwear?
    It's recommended to wash your period underwear after each use, just like regular underwear. This helps prevent the growth of bacteria and keeps your underwear fresh and hygienic.
    Make sure you wash them with cold running water.

  • Can I machine wash my period underwear?
    Yes, you can. Our products are designed to be machine washable. However,  make sure you are using cold water and a gentle cycle. Avoid using fabric softeners or harsh detergents, as they can affect the absorbency and performance of the underwear.

  • Should I pre-soak my period underwear before washing it?
    Pre-soaking can help remove stains and odors, especially for heavier flow days. You can soak them in cold water with a gentle stain remover or hydrogen peroxide before tossing them into the washing machine.

  • Can I use bleach on my period underwear?
    We recommended not to use bleach, as it can damage the fabric and affect its absorbency. Instead, opt for milder stain removers or hydrogen peroxide for stain removal.

  • What happens if I put my period underwear in the dryer?
    We recommend not putting your period underwear in the dryer because the heat of the dryer might affect the material, reducing its performance and longevity of the materials.
    It's best to air dry them whenever possible. Hang them in a well-ventilated area or lay them flat to dry to maintain their shape and elasticity.

  • Can I use fabric softener on my period underwear?
    It's best to avoid using fabric softeners on period underwear, as they can leave a residue that may affect absorbency. Stick to mild, fragrance-free detergents to keep your underwear clean and fresh.

  • How do I store my period underwear between cycles?
    Store your clean and dry period underwear in a clean, dry place, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Avoid folding them tightly to prevent creasing, which can affect their performance over time.
