wash and maintain Period Panties and swimsuits

Period Panties and swimsuits are eco-friendly and economical alternatives to disposable sanitary napkins and tampons. To take full advantage of their benefits, it is important to maintain them properly. This guide explains how to wash and care for your period panties and swimsuits for optimal and long-lasting use.


First use

Before discovering the joys of your new menstrual products, it is important to prepare them. Wash your period panties and swimsuits 2 to 3 times in the machine at 30°C. This essential step allows them to activate their maximum absorption capacities and eliminate manufacturing residues. You are now ready to use them!

Daily use

1️⃣ After each use, Rinse your Period Panties or swimsuit in cold or lukewarm water. Make sure the water is clear before moving on to the next step.

2️⃣ For washing, two options are available to you:

  • Hand washing : Fill a sink with lukewarm water and add a small amount of mild detergent (about a tablespoon). Choose laundry detergent without bleaching agents, chlorine or harsh perfumes. Avoid fabric softeners and greasy soaps which can reduce the absorption of your protection. Dip your Period Panties or swimsuit in the soapy water and gently scrub the soiled areas. Then rinse thoroughly with clean water until the water runs clear.
  • Machine wash: Place your Period Panties or swimsuit in a laundry net to protect it. Select a delicate cycle at 30°C maximum and use a mild detergent as previously indicated. Avoid the prewash program and never use fabric softener.

3️⃣ Favor drying in the open air, away from the sun and heat sources. Avoid tumble drying which can damage the fabric and absorbent properties of your protections.

4️⃣ To guarantee optimal hygiene and better longevity for your menstrual underwear, alternate the use of several Period Panties and swimsuits.
