Why should period underwear be washed before your first use?

We recommend washing the underwear before your first use for 2 reasons:

- For hygiene reasons  - during production and shipping, we do our best to keep the underwear intact, but it is important that the underwear is washed to avoid any risks.

- To open the fibres  - washing relaxes and opens the fibres, which allows the underwear to have better absorbency.

How do I properly wash Balya Lady period underwear?

It is important to take care of the underwear, causing minimum impact on the environment 

- Use a laundry bag during each wash

- Use non-corrosive detergents (which do not contain bleach, alcohol), and non-greasy (based on glycerine) and non-perfumed washing sanitary napkins so as not to reduce their absorbency.

- It is advised not to exceed 1000 rpm.

- Preferably, dry in a tumble dryer as it improves absorption properties. When drying on a clothesline, hang the underwear lengthwise.


How do I store dirty period underwear?

You can store them in a laundry bag, in an airtight container, or in a sealed waterproof bag.

Ideally, wash the underwear right after use and wash it for a maximum of 7 days to avoid the proliferation of bacteria.
