How to Wash a Hannahpad
Probably one of the most common questions we are asked here at The Brand Hannah is “How do I wash my cloth pads”? If you’re concerned about the cleaning process of your reusable pads, we’ve broken it down everything you need to know!
Steps for Washing Your Cloth Pads
When it comes to washing your hannahpads, there are just 5 simple steps you need to follow:
Pre-rinse your hannahpad by placing it under cold running water to avoid staining by rinsing out as much discharge as possible.
Use your preferred washing detergent to gently rub the soiled area of the pad until it lathers. Do not rinse out the detergent afterwards.
Fold your hannahpad in half and soak it in cold water for a minimum of 6 hours and up to 2 days, changing your water every 12 hours.
Hand wash your soaked cloth pad in running water. You can machine wash gently used pads and liners, but we recommend hand washing for longer lifespans.
Hang your hannahpads to ensure they are thoroughly dried before their next use.
Top Cleaning Tips
- Using probiotic laundry soap promotes good bacteria for deeper cleansing and a healthier environment.
- Mesh laundry bags are available for anyone who wishes to discreetly machine wash their hannahpads.
- Avoid using peroxide as a stain remover as the wrong concentration will significantly damage the pad.
- Drying your hannahpads in the sun will make them cleaner and fresher as the sun is considered a natural sanitizer and stain remover!
