So you just received your new Revol Cares leak proof undies, but now what? You may be wondering, "How do I ensure they stay clean and forever nearly new" - worry not! We're here to provide you with the complete and deep instruction on how to do just that!
It's also crucial to remember that period blood is a natural part of life and nothing to be ashamed of. Touching it should not be a source of discomfort or disgust. Period undies, like Revol Cares, are designed to handle your flow with grace and confidence.
First-things-first: Wash Before Using
Our undies have our absorbent fabric layer, and depending on the protection, also contain the super absorbent pad. A first wash and dry is great to help fluff up the material to get it onto its peak performance.
Pre-Wash: The Gentle Prelude
After use, before the main event, start with a gentle pre-wash ritual. Give your leak proof undies a rinse and squeeze in lukewarm water with soap until the water is clear. This may take a few minutes for the ultra absorbent undies! Think of it as a refreshing dip before they hit the laundry stage. A great tip is to use a liquid dish detergent, such as Dawn to really get in deep and break down those fluids!
Befriend Lukewarm Water
Your period panties adore lukewarm water. Heat and hot water can be harsh on the elastic magic that gives them their perfect fit. So, be kind and choose a gentle temperature and make sure to turn them inside out when washing and drying!
Detergent Drama: Choose Wisely
Select your detergent thoughtfully – not all detergents are created equal. Opt for a mild, fragrance-free detergent, or better yet, one designed for delicates. It's like sending your undies on a spa day, ensuring they stay soft and maintain their shape and is better for your sensitive skin areas.
Separation (of the Laundry Variety)
While period undies love to mingle, they prefer a little privacy during laundry time. Wash them separately or with like-minded laundry buddies that share similar care requirements and colour. Our mesh undies also love a laundry bag: these prevent tangles or snags and help keep them looking like new.
The Art of Gentle Drying
Air-drying is your undies' preferred way to unwind, but can take some time, so tumble on a delicate setting or low heat! Spare them the tumultuous journey of a hot tumble dryer or direct sunlight exposure, as these can lead to fabric fatigue. Let them breathe in the gentle embrace of cool air.
Banishing Stubborn Stains
For those pesky stains, a gentle stain remover or a paste made from baking soda and water can work wonders. But remember, avoid bleach, as it can lift colour and cause the fabric to wear faster!
Deep Cleaning: When All Else Fails
If the pre-rinse was not fully completed each time, you may end up with some build-up after awhile, but it's not an issue! Here's how to deal with it:
Pre-Soak: Submerge your inside-out undies in a mixture of one cup of white vinegar and cold water for 30 minutes to an hour.
Machine Wash: Wring out excess water from the vinegar soak, but keep the undies inside out. Wash them in a warm cycle with another cup of white vinegar or 1/2 cup of baking soda, alongside your regular laundry detergent.
Optional Dryer: Occasionally, you can pop your undies in the dryer on medium heat to kill any remaining bacteria.
Remember, this deep cleaning routine isn't for everyday use but can be a lifesaver when your undies need an extra intensive clean.
With these tips, your Revol Cares leak proof undies will stay fresh and fabulous, ready to have your back month after month for years to come.
