I had a sweet lady write and ask what I did for my periods.
Firstly, disposable pads and tampons are very toxic to your system. They cause foul odors and make you itchy and uncomfortable. Tampons are the worst things you can ever stick inside of you. The only thing that should ever go inside of you is your husbands penis, and your baby coming out of the womb. Pads and tampons can cause yeast infections and Urinary Tract Infections.
I use cotton pads. I actually just take a stretch of cotton and fold it up and lay it in my underwear. When it gathers up enough blood, I refold it to where the blood is in the back, and the front is fresh and clean. I can use a pad a day using this method.
As soon as I am done, I put the pad in the sink, mix cold water and peroxide and let it sit. Then, after the blood has come out, I immediately throw it in the washing machine and let it wash. Peroxide isn't good for your insides either, but it is fabulous at taking out blood! Thats why you must immediately wash the pads when you are done. Sometimes I use lemon juice as a bleaching effect. I never use bleach unless the pad is too stained, and then, I will wash the pad two or three times to make sure it isn't going to hurt me.
I hope you all have enjoyed this, and that it helps you out.
