What You Didn’t Know About Pads
By The Honey Pot Company
It’s that time of the month and you’re reaching under your bathroom sink for your menstrual pads. Most women don’t realize the truth about what’s lurking in those conventional pads.
- Most conventional pads are manufactured using cotton sprayed with pesticides.
- They are also bleached with chlorine which sits atop the pad as toxic residue.
- The toxic chemicals in pads are absorbed into the body with each use.
- Storing your pads in the bathroom can lead to an increase of bacteria due to the high levels of moisture and humidity.
- Store your pads in the linen closet or another cool, dry place.
- Change your pads every 2-4 hours depending on your flow.
- If you soak through a pad within an hour, you need to go to urgent care as this is considered excessive bleeding.
