Caring for your bloomers & Noras
We want you to get the best out of your fluffy new pads, so here are some top tips to help you along the way!
Before first use, give the pads a wash with your normal laundry to get them up to full absorbency.
A quick cold water hand rinse will prevent any staining. Do not use hot water as this can set stains.
Store soiled pads in the bathroom bag. With a zippered top to keep wetness in and nosey parkers out!
Don’t let your pads dry out before laundering. Once rinsed, store in bag & wash within 48 hours.
Use a non-bio powder and wash at 40°. Biological powders and liquids can corrode the bamboo fibres.
Avoid fabric conditioner as it will coat the fabric fibres and reduce their absorbent capacity.
Treat them like you would your knickers, same rules apply. Wash white with white and colours with colours.
Line dry them inside or out. You can tumble dry them on a low heat, but they are fast drying so shouldn’t need it.

A question we are most asked by customers is “What do I do with my used pads?”
Well, we have a solution for that! Our ‘Bathroom’ and ‘Out and About’ Bags.
The waterproof Bathroom Bag has a poppered strap enabling you to hang it over a rail or hook out of reach, and a zippered top to keep wetness in.
Pop the bag and contents into the washing machine (opened of course) and they will tumble out refreshed and ready for another cycle.
Out & About bag
This clever little bag is the perfect travel companion. You can safely carry 4-6 pads on the go, with two separate waterproof compartments for used and unused pads.
Simply wash with your soiled pads and re-use. Pops down into a neat little bag to fit into the smallest of handbags too.
