How to wash period underwear

The good news is that washing period underwear is easy. There’s no need for fancy products, or expensive dry cleaning. Follow these instructions for the best way to take care of your period underwear to ensure your intimawear™ by Libresse® are ready to go the next time you need them.

First things first, rinse

Firstly, rinse them in cold water to wash out most of the fluids that have been absorbed. If you like, you can use your hands to gently rub the gusset (that’s the bottom of the underwear that lies next to your vulva) to make sure it’s clean.

Next, hand-wash or throw in the washing machine

Then simply pop your intimawear™ by Libresse® in the washing machine at 40 degrees. Avoid fabric softener or bleach, as these can have a negative effect on how efficiently your period underwear work. You can wash period underwear on their own, hand-wash with your delicates or with your regular underwear and clothes (so you don’t need to do multiple loads if you don’t want to).

Finally, leave to dry

Hang dry. intimawear™ by Libresse® may take a little longer to dry than your usual underwear, because of the layers of materials used. If you’re in a hurry, it’s fine to tumble dry them on low. And there you have it. Ready to go whenever you need them next.

Will washing period underwear really get rid of blood and discharge?

As long as you’re washing at 40 degrees with detergent, the hot soapy water will easily wash away whatever you throw at your intimawear™ by Libresse®, guaranteed for a minimum of 50 washes.

Bleed, wash, repeat
