How to take care of my Period panties?
- by hand (in the shower for example)
- machine (wash them at a maximum of 30º and never dry), along with other clothes (and that's okay, there's no need to wash them alone).
Important tip: If, once washed, the part of the bridge is a little stiff, it is important that you wash your Periods again, either by rubbing the area well by hand, or by washing them inside out in the washing machine. The bridge area should be soft and flexible to ensure maximum absorbency. Do not put them in the dryer so as not to damage the waterproof part.
Don't forget to use the wash bag that comes with your Period :)
Oh, by the way, and no ironing, okay?
Is it normal for the panties to lose some color at the bottom?
This is because our vaginal pH level is somewhat high. The color inside the panty is similar to rust. pH is the scale used to measure the level of acidity or alkalinity of a substance. Its values range from 0 to 14 and those in position 7 are considered neutral, such as blood and pure water. The acids are below the average and the alkalines are above it. The vagina has a pH between 3.8 and 4.5, which makes it slightly acidic. This creates a protective barrier, which prevents bacteria from multiplying quickly and causing an infection, a sign that your vagina is working properly and is protected from disease.
