How to Use Sanitary or Menstrual Pads

  • Start by washing your hands.
  • If the pad is in a wrapper, remove it and use the wrapper to dispose of the old pad.
  • Remove the adhesive strip and center the pad on the bottom of your underwear. If your napkin has wings, remove the backing and wrap it on both sides of your panty.
  • Wash your hands and you’re ready to go!

Don’t forget: pads should be changed at least every four hours. But you can replace them as often as you want depending on what makes you comfortable.
