How do I dispose of my sanitary pad properly?

Whatever you do, NEVER try to flush your used pad down the toilet. Worst-case scenario – the toilet gets blocked and you have to unblock it. Fun? Definitely NOT. Get rid of your sanitary pad like this:

1.Remove the used pad by grabbing one end and pulling it towards you
2. Roll and wrap the pad in the wrapper from your new pad
3. Pop it into a sanitary disposal bin or rubbish bin in the toilet
4.IIf you can't find a bin or you're at a friend's place, you can also use toilet paper to wrap your used pad. Pop it into your bag and dispose it in a bin outside. Just make sure it's tightly wrapped!
