Today our world is plagued by environmental contamination and plastic garbage catastrophe in particular. Artificial materials created by technology are not a thing anymore. People are coming back to their roots and don’t want to use disposable things that will be used once but stay in this world for decades being the cause of other living things’ death.

This is the case when modern problems require old-fashioned solutions. The zero-waste lifestyle has reached every sphere of modern people’s life including women’s intimate hygiene. No matter how surprising it may sound, reusable pads (those that needed washing and drying in the good old days) are back on the scene.

What’s the Problem With Disposable Means of Hygiene?

All the pads and tampons one average woman uses in her entire life make a huge pile of trash that can never be recycled and will just contaminate the planet for years, even when this woman dies. This is why replacing synthetic means of hygiene that are made to be thrown away with natural ones that can be used over and over again is a smart solution to reduce environmental contamination.

Today such alternatives are menstrual cups and reusable pads. The menstrual cup needs a certain skill and experience to be used effectively. In addition, some medical conditions such as cervicitis, ectropion, etc. may require other solutions. With reusable pads, it’s just as simple as with the disposable ones. But you should wash it and use it again instead of throwing it away. 

For women who remember the times when reusable pads should be DIY and leaked often, the ideas of coming back to it may seem like a nightmare. However, reusable pads of the new generation are different from the vintage ones. 

The Pros of Reusable Pads

Let’s look at why modern reusable pads are better.

  • You don’t need to make them yourself. They are available for purchase on the Internet in different sizes and designs. Some of them are very cute and have stylish patterns or shapes. They deserve to become a part of your style, even if you are the one who sees them.
  • They don’t leak. A big layer of super-absorbing tissue inside them can keep a lot of blood. Surely you will have to change them regularly because no matter how resistible they may be, their absorbing function is limited.
  • They let your skin breathe. Unlike disposable pads that consist of synthetic material, reusable pads are made of natural material that doesn’t deprive your skin of air. This eliminates bacteria and you will be comfortable with such a pad even in warm weather.

They also have some drawbacks you should be aware of.

  • You need to wash them. They get dry for quite a long time due to their great ability to absorb fluid but if you have enough of them, it won’t be a problem.
  • Their absorbing ability is limited. If you don’t replace a pad soaked with blood with a clean one in time, you can face leaking that will leave stains on your panties. However, if you have enough of them, it’s not a problem as well.
  • They may get covered with stains over time. But even if there will be some stains, they can still be useful, absorbing your blood the same way as they did before. Such things as pads aren’t usually visible to people, so the stains won’t bother you nor other people. 

Reusable pads are something you should definitely try. Whether you will want to switch to them or not, only trying them out will help you make the final decision.
