How do I wash my pads?
- Before first-use: We recommend pre-washing your pads before first time use. This helps to activate the absorbent fibers.
- After use: Rinse pads in cold water or leave them to soak overnight to prevent staining. Just add them in with the rest of your wash and a normal detergent - 30 or 40 degrees, or hand wash with warm water and soap.
- After washing: stretch your pads back into shape if required, and hang to dry. Do not tumble dry on high heat as this may cause shrinkage.
