Maxi Pads feature a leakproof, absorbent core and are adjustable to accommodate light, moderate, or heavy menstrual flow and light / stress incontinence. Add and replace inserts to increase absorbency and freshen your pad throughout the day.
Includes 1 Maxi Pad & 1 Maxi Basic Insert
Suitable for light, moderate, or heavy menstrual flow and light / stress incontinence.
Maxi Pads and Inserts are each 10” (25.5cm) long and approximately 2.5” (6.5cm) wide when fastened.
Additional Maxi Basic or Maxi Wing Inserts may be added to increase absorbency and prevent leaks. A single Pad will last a full day, provided that the Insert is changed before soaking through. Inserts will last approximately as long per use as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon.
Pad Base: 2 Layer, 100% cotton flannel base topped with an absorbent panel made of 2 layers of cotton fleece, and 1 layer of PUL to prevent soaking through. Nickel-free, Silver-plated brass single snap fastening.
Insert: 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece.
A single Pad will get you through an entire day of your cycle; just change your Insert as needed. Inserts will last approximately as long (per use) as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. Unlike most disposable pads, Lunapads do not contain any added chemicals, gels, or super absorbent polymers. Given this, Lunapads users need to be mindful of changing the Insert as frequently as their flow dictates in order to prevent soaking through the Pad. Frequent changing of the Inserts significantly enhances the comfort and performance of the Pad.
Lunapads will last upwards of 5 years with recommended usage and care. Many of our customers report they still own some Lunapads from 10 years ago!
Wash and Care:
Lunapads can be washed by hand or machine in any temperature with your regular detergent. Pre-soaking or rinsing in cold water prior to washing is recommended (but not always necessary) particularly if the pads are heavily saturated. Do not soak for longer than 24 hours.
We recommend natural cleaning products for regular washing and stain removal. Heavily stained Lunapads may also benefit from occasional machine wash and dry in hot settings or air drying in direct sunlight.
Please avoid the use of chlorine bleach or fabric softeners to clean Lunapads, as this will decrease the performance of the products and is harmful to the environment.
Wrap the Pad around the gusset of your underwear and close the snap to secure. The absorbent fleece panel in the center of the pad should be facing up towards your body. Incorrect placement may result in reduced comfort and performance of the Pad.
How to Use:
Inserts can be added as desired by sliding under the ric-rac bands on the Pad. Multiple Inserts may be used for increased absorbency. Pads can be refreshed as desired by removing and replacing the Insert(s). Please note that Inserts are not intended to be worn without a Pad.
