How to Use
GladRags Night Pads consist of one holder and two inserts. This versatile design ensures thorough cleaning and allows you to make them mini or maxi by using one or two inserts. All pads have wings that snap around the gusset of most styles of underwear. This holds them in place while you go about your day -- no adhesives necessary.
- Place the inserts inside the holder.
- Snap the pad around your underwear. The smooth side of the pad goes against your skin, and the wings wrap around the crotch of the underwear to snap together.
- Change the complete pad (holder and inserts) every 2 to 6 hours or as needed. Your used pad goes in your laundry basket or a soaking container if you're at home, or a carry bag if you're on the go.
You'll want to change your cloth pad about as often as you would change a similar disposable pad. You can also check the pad (even remove it from your underwear and turn it over) to visually see how saturated it is. Like a disposable pad, if a cloth pad becomes fully saturated, it may leak.
- After use, separate the inserts from the holder.
- Soak in cold water, if desired, to help prevent staining. Use the presoak function on your washing machine, or soak in a covered rust-proof container. Change soaking water daily.
- Machine wash cold using a natural detergent and tumble dry low or line dry. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. You may hand wash pads if desired.
- Remove pads from dryer promptly and store flat to eliminate wrinkling; use cool iron if desired. Store your pads in a clean, dry place until next use.
Avoid using detergents that include fabric softeners or whiteners as these can inhibit the absorbency of your cloth pads. We do not recommend the use of castile soap, facial soap, or other soaps not intended for textile laundering. Excess detergent may lead to build-up, which can limit the absorbency of your cloth pads.
A note about staining: Soaking your reusable pads in cold water or pre-treating with an enzymatic cleanser immediately after using are two simple ways to prevent staining. However, light staining does not indicate that your laundered cloth pads are not clean or sanitary!
