Well now that’s interesting. 🤔👍
I got some of these recently and they’re AWESOME. I am still recovering from a harrowing experience with an IUD my body didn’t like, so I bleed pretty much constantly, with 3-5 day reprieves. So having the cloth pantiliner or pad instead of commercial disposable ones, is fucking awesome. No leaking, less dry skin, no wet feeling, more comfortable, less waste - I can’t find a downside. I just rinse them out and let them dry, and then put them in the washer and dryer with the rest of my laundry. Fantastic.
Bought a few and the discount code worked :) looking forward to trying these!
I am super into trying this product. Yay!
I’ve been using a cup and period panties for a while now.
Green options are amazing 😉
I have re-usable cloth pads (not from this brand but still), and as a trans-masc I have to say it’s a great option for vagina-owners of all genders! If you’ve ever changed a pad in the men’s bathroom, you will be familiar with the panic of having nowhere to dispose of the used pad, and perhaps had to hide the crinkle of the packet. With these, there is no need for a bin (just put the used pads in the little pouch provided), and the sound of a popper unclipping is not at all out of place!
How would the process of going about cleansing them be like? And how do I know they won’t retain some of the blood within? I just don’t think it’s something that will be 100 clean after it’s first use.
@whyarceuswhy Just rinse until the water you ring out is clear, similar to dying hair. And then afterwards you toss it into the washing machine with you know other clothes and things.
A stain is not the same thing as particulate matter. You will likely see some staining. But that doesn’t mean it’s not clean. Like are you okay with sleeping on your sheets after a week? They’ll literally be dirtier than this pad.
I use pads like this (from a different company) and I absolutely LOVE them. I’m prone to getting bacterial vaginitis after my periods (caused by a pH imbalance) but I find it happens way less often now that I’m using these. They’re so comfortable that I can wear them for much longer without that diaper rash feeling you get from disposable pads. I truly recommend them.
For washing, however, I rinse them in the sink until the water runs clear, then wash in the washing machine on the heavy duty cycle to make sure they’re extra clean, but I do NOT put them in the dryer. I found that the dryer made them smell a bit strange (it’s possible the ones I have are made of a different material, but still). And so I simply use laundry clips to hang them up and let them air dry and they’re good as new.
I literally toss them in the bottom of my shower. Take a shower as normal, let them kinda soak down there at the drain. When I’m ready to get out, I wring them out (and rinse more if necessary) and then hang them on the shower curtain rod to dry. Then they go right in the washer and dryer with the rest of my laundry! I thought I might find them gross or something, but truly it’s not. My body thanks me.
Boost, for my period-having friends

After I took my nature lab which literally made me go into nature for 5 hours a week I felt so refreshed and relaxed and did way better in all my classes…

Most shows I’ve seen that mention fan fiction readers/writers portray them as kinda oddball super-geeks with no lives or social skills.
So I wanna take a moment to appreciate the fact that in Parks & Recreation, the character who writes fan fiction is the intelligent, successful, and good-looking primary love interest of the main character.
Also I want to read the full fic he wrote.
It’s only unrealistic because he said he finished it.
He’s obviously lying, so it’s very realistic.
Here we have Terry from Brooklyn Nine Nine. He’s an Absolute Unit, father, police officer, black, intelligent, kind, a main character……and writes fanfiction from The Good Wife.
B99 - breaking stereotypes all over the place.
ETA: gifset not mine, I think it’s from @msjessicaday
Note that both shows are from the same creator. Who also writes Kant fanfiction and calls it “The Good Place.”
