How are Cloth pads Hygenic?
Cloth pads are completely hygienic when properly cared for. Millions of women have used cloth to manage menstrual flow for generations. If the cloth is not washed and dried properly, it becomes unhygienic. Also, there is nothing unhygienic about handling of used pads. Menstrual blood is a body fluid which our grandmothers (and in many cases mothers) were perfectly comfortable with. When cloth pads are washed well, dried completely and stored properly, they are perfectly hygienic.
✓ It is very easy to wash your used reusable cloth sanitary pads.
✓ First, soak the pads in cold water for at least 20 minutes or more in a bucket or a container. Make sure you use only cold water. Cold water ensures that the blood does not get hardened on the cotton cloth.
✓ After you have soaked them for 20 minutes or more, rinse them as you gently rub the sides of the pad against itself.
✓ Rinse till the time the water comes out clear. Make sure you do not use brush. Using brush will decrease the life span of the pad.
✓ Now wash by hand with very little quantity of detergent / soap. Rub the pad against itself. DO NOT use the brush.
✓ Rinse well and make sure there is no residual detergent left.
