About using hannahpad cloth pads

Disposable pads are made using polymers that have high absorption capacity. Polymers are designed with a focus on moisture absorbing properties, this means that disposable pads have a tendency to get stuffy and are prone to breeding bacteria. Also, the smell you experience when using disposable pads comes from the reaction between the blood and the chemicals in the disposable pads. This is also why disposable pads are heavily scented with artificial fragrances.

hannahpad cloth pads are made of breathable organic cotton that can absorb and suppress bacterial growth. The cotton used in hannahpads are 100% certified organic, unbleached and undyed, there are no chemicals hence you would not experience any smell when using hannahpad cloth pads.

Each individual is different. A good gauge of how many cloth pads you need would depend on how many disposables you use. The number of hannahpad cloth pads you would need should be the same as with disposables or even less.

Most women would change out their disposable pads frequently as they become uncomfortable or bad odour, even if their pads are not full. With hannahpad, there is no odour and it is just as comfortable and breathable as wearing your underwear, hence you may not need to change our your hannahpad as often. However, every individual is different, your period flow and comfort level will also differ.

We recommend that you try at least 2-3 different sizes and add on more later when you have a better idea of your needs.

Each hannahpad cloth pad has high quality plastic snaps on the wings. Similar to wearing a disposable pad, you would fold the wings over the gusset of your underwear and then fasten the plastic button snaps. Wearing a snug fitting underwear will help hannahpad to stay close to your body and easy to adjust to your liking.

Each hannahpad comes with a small ziploc bag which you can use to hold your pad pre- and post-use. Simply fold the used pad and store it in its ziploc bag or a wet bag.


About washing

Organic cotton contains natural oils which may weaken the absorbency, therefore we recommend that your hannahpads are washed before the first use.

For everyday usage pantyliners/pads, you can wash them directly without pre-rinsing.

For hannahpads used during your period, follow the easy steps below!
> Step 1: Pre-rinse using cold water until the the water run clears. You can do this while in the shower to save time and water.
> Step 2: If there are any stains, lather and soak the pad in washing detergent like our probioics laundry soap for a minimum of six hours or overnight.
> Step 3: Wash your hannahpads.
> Step 4: Sun your hannahpads to dry naturally.

Definitely, yes! You can wash your hannahpad cloth pads in a washing machine! Do not use fabric softener and use a natural or chemical free laundry detergent. Do not machine dry your hannahpad as this will damage the waterproof outer-shell.
