Washing and taking care of your cloth sanitary pads

Taking care of your cloth sanitary pads is easy.

The basic steps should be:

Step 1. Hand rinse used CSP under cold water, squeezing the pad until the water runs clear. This is essentially your pre-wash and will help to prevent staining too.

Step 2. Fold up and store in a wet bag.

Step 3. On washing day, unfold all pads and do your washing cycle. They've already had their pre-wash so you can throw them in with your other washing or your nappy wash (after the nappy pre-wash).

Step 4. Dry your pads (outside on a line if possible to prevent staining.)

It's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions re washing temperatures, but I find a long cotton hot wash, max 60 degrees, does the trick.
