10 Reasons Why You Should Switch To Reusable Pads Today!
April 02 2020
Reusable cloth period pads may seem that we’re going back to the olden days but I can assure you that this is definitely not the case. Cloth sanitary pads of yesterday were a mess to use, leaks through your underwear and just a pain really! Fast forward to modern day’s innovation, reusable pads have not only become more reliable, but also the environmentally-conscious choice of today’s consumers.
The B Free Reusable Stay Dry Leakage and Period Pads are a great all-rounder that simply works on a variety of applications. From light to heavy flow periods, light bladder leakage (as alternative to disposable incontinence pads) as well as postpartum bleeding (like maternity pads). You’ll be sure to stay feeling fresh, clean and confident!
1. They are very easy to clean and care for
As most women, you’ve probably looked into switching to reusable pads but wasn’t fond of the potential hassle, maintenance or that it’s unhygienic. Well I can confidently say that us at B Free HQ have tried and tested the reusable pads and they are much easier to use than you think!
After use, we recommend rinsing it with cold water until it runs clear (as hot water can set the stain), hand wash or pop them in the washing machine. For heavier flow days, you can do a pre-wash step by first soaking the pad in cold water with a drop of tea tree oil to sanitise.
2. They are leak-proof and odour resistant - Highly absorbent and doesn’t smell!
Our reusable leakage and period pads have a 4-layer construction to ensure total confidence when wearing them!
Layer 1 has our stay-dry technology that allows the moisture to pass through to the 2nd and 3rd layer while wicking away excess moisture to keep you feeling dry, fresh as well as minimising odour.
Layers 2 & 3 are made from terry towelling materials which absorbs the moisture.
Layer 4 is the waterproof layer which prevents any leakage from happening.
3. They are eco-friendly - You can help save our planet
Imagine how many pads, tampons and applicators, and panty liners end up in our landfill every month? These disposable menstrual products leave a significant carbon footprint that will affect us for hundreds of years. The process of manufacturing disposable plastic, synthetics, thermoplastic is taxing and can find its way back to our air and water ways, and inevitably animal habitats.
By making the switch to reusable pads today, not only is it better for our wallets but the environment as well. Every little thing counts, and together we can all reduce our contribution to plastic waste and be more sustainable.
4. They are budget-friendly - You will save more money in the long run
Although quality period pads seem like the more expensive option now, you will end up saving money in the long run as you don’t have to buy disposable products monthly anymore.
Purchasing pads and tampons regularly cost more because of its disposable nature and monthly consumption. These aren’t meant to last you for years to come. Whereas, the B Free Reusable Pads are designed to not only be perfectly practical but have great build quality that will last you at least 3 years with proper care and storage.
5. They feel ultra-soft and are super comfortable
We may not always have the chance to cuddle up in a fluffy blanket with some hot chocolate but we can at least choose high quality feminine products. The B Free Reusable Stay Dry Leakage and Period Pads feel soft against the body with a flexible fit that moves with your body.
