"INFO: The team previously at hannahpad Canada launched their own new brand, illum! These blog posts have been written when we used to run hannahpad Canada. All information is still relevant and everything is the same! We simply changed the brand that we offer. "
Probably one of the most common questions we are asked here at illum is “How do I wash my cloth pads”? If you’re concerned about the cleaning process of your reusable pads, we’ve broken it down everything you need to know!
When it comes to washing your illum cloth pads, there are just 5 simple steps you need to follow:
Pre-rinse your illum cloth pad by placing it under cold running water to avoid staining by rinsing out as much discharge as possible.
Use your preferred washing detergent to gently rub the soiled area of the pad until it lathers. Do not rinse out the detergent afterwards.
Fold your illum cloth pad in half and soak it in cold water for a minimum of 6 hours and up to 2 days, changing your water every 12 hours.
Hand wash your soaked cloth pad in running water. You can machine wash gently used pads and liners, but we recommend hand washing for longer lifespans.
Hang your illum cloth pads to ensure they are thoroughly dried before their next use.
