Reclaim Sanitary Pads & Panty Liners

Caring for your Cloth.
In a 8 oz bottle (Reuse an old condiment bottle)

Store soiled pads and liners in a wetbag or resealable plastic bag till they can be washed.
Rinse pads in cold water with washing soda or sodium borate. Let soak in the solution until wash day if staining will bother you. Stains do not mean that your pad is not clean!
Never use hot water to wash your pads. Hot water will set stains, weaken lamination and can cause shrinkage.
Wash pads with other cold water items (usually your dark clothes and towels)
