Period Panties 101: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Period Panties
GoPadFree™ is India’s first truly leak-proof, reusable period panty. If you’ve been hesitant to try this product, we’re busting all myths and answering all your questions today!
1. Do I need to wear a pad/tampon/cup?
Absolutely not! It’s true! GoPadFree™ is India’s first ever leak-proof underwear that absorbs 5 times more than regular sanitary pads or tampons. You don’t have to worry about leaking or wearing double underwear to avoid staining through your clothes - thanks to the absorbent material used in these panties.
2. How often do I have to wash them?
Wash them after every use - it's very easy! We recommend hand-washing under running tap water and hang-drying. Just use your regular detergent to ensure hygiene! Using fabric softener and drying under direct sun may reduce the expected life of the product. Please ensure they are fully dry before storing/reusing them.
3. Can I get Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) from wearing Period Panties?
Most women fear using tampons, even sanitary pads for too long because of therisk of TSS. However, the risk of TSS from this menstrual underwear is negligible because they are worn externally and are designed to wick the wetness away from the body. Moreover, the panties are made with OEKO-TEX® certified fabric. So, worry not ladies, you’re safe with GoPadFree™ !
4. Is there a bad odour?
If you follow the washing instructions, you will not experience any bad odour. Given the patent-pending breathable fabric multi-layered structure and use of premium quality cotton, GoPadFree™ promises maximum hygiene and minimal odour.
5. Is it actually good for the environment?
Unlike other period products, Period Panties don’t create any disposable plastic waste. They are mostly biodegradable and can be used upto 2 years. As a brand, sustainability is one of our core principles and therefore the packaging material has also been designed in a minimalistic and eco-friendly fashion. GoPadFree™ is the best alternative to keep our planet safe!
