How absorbent are they?

You know your cycle best and we recommend you change your protection in line with your flow. If you go through many tampons or pads per day, then you’ll need to change these more frequently. However with the absorbent protection right from the front to rear waistband, you have full coverage, even when sleeping.

Washing and Care Instructions for Cheeky® Period Protection

1 & 2. Soak or Wash within 24 hours

Either wash within 24 hours, or cold soak for couple of days and pop in the washing machine. We tend to remove our pants and run under the cold tap and give it a good scrub with some soap which is HUGELY satisfying.  Then pop them into our mucky box with some cold water and a scoop of some Oxi type oxygen stain remover which is eco-friendly and works!  Alternatively, if you’ve got a wash going on shortly, you can give them a squirt of liquid stain remover and pop them straight into the washing machine.

3. Wash in a cool or cold wash, 30℃ or lower

Not everyone is aware of this, but bloodstains must be washed out at body temperature or below, washing at 40c will ‘set’ the stain, never to be removed!  That’s because blood is a protein stain (think of an egg) and applying heat to a protein ‘sets’ it, just like scrambling an egg.  If you wash at 40℃, it’s not the end of the world, the pads or period pants will still work perfectly, they just won’t look as pretty as they did at first. Avoid fabric softener as it will coat the fibres of the pads or pants and stop them absorbing.


4. Leave to air dry


It’s super important that you don’t tumble dry your Cheeky pads and pants, we also suggest avoiding putting them on direct heat sources like a radiator. If it’s too hot to hold your hand on, it’s too hot for them.

DO NOT USE BLEACH on your Cheeky® period protection

Now we’ve got that out of our system, we can move on to the other tips:

Wash in a decent wash cycle, using your normal stain remover and washing powder combination

At Cheeky HQ we use a bio powder and Oxy type stain remover. We used to use more ‘eco’ products but for us, we found that it was a false eco economy as they just didn’t get as clean as using proper washing powder and hence reducing the longevity of our clothing.  And when you’ve got 4 kids who could potentially hand clothing down to one another, that’s really important!  It’s also important to use a decent length wash cycle.  Rapid / eco  wash cycles which you may use for clothing which just needs a freshen up won’t work for stained items.  We would advise a wash cycle of at least an hour to get your pants properly clean.

Can I wash absorbent pants and cloth sanitary pads with other items or do they need to be washed by themselves?

The good news is that you can just bung your period pants into the wash with whatever else you have got to wash and wash it all at 30℃. There’s no need at all to wash them separately which is fantastic news. If you assume that your period protection adds up to half a kg of washing a month, over the course of a year, this is just one more ‘average’ wash load, so very little environmental impact! And don’t worry, your husbands shirts etc won’t be contaminated by a tiny bit of blood in the wash! Just avoid fabric softener!
