How to use period underwear
As easy as one-two-three.
Use period underwear instead of pads, tampons or cups, or as a backup for extra protection.
After use, rinse in cold water until it runs clear. Machine wash cold (30°) or by hand with a mild detergent. Hang to dry.
Reuse and repeat – during the day and night!

The material is amazing! Super soft and comfortable (I wish all my underwear was this comfy). And I liked the fit as well. I've been using them to sleep in and the only issue is that they don't dry quickly enough to use every night (probably not a problem in the summer). Ideally I would need a second pair. I would definitely recommended them, though! They are a great way to avoid pads and tampons.

As long as your flow allows. Some can wear it for a full day, while others use it as a backup for a cup or tampon. We generally recommend you use them for 8-12 hours. They can also be used overnight and for spotting or discharge. The underwear itself lasts for years.
We recommend that you have 3-4 pairs so you can change into a new pair after wearing them for 8-12 hours. Wash and dry the used ones before reusing.
You can tell by looking at the seams of the gusset. If you see blood at the seams or if the underwear feels wet, this is an indication that you should change them soon. As you start using them, you'll quickly get a sense of your flow and how long you can be leak-free for.
The AllMatters period underwear can hold the equivalent of 1-2 regular tampons worth of blood (10ml).
Yes. The inner layer (made partly from merino wool) is naturally antibacterial and anti-odour. After use, you rinse out the absorbed blood in cold water and then hand wash cold with a mild detergent or machine wash cold (30°). After hanging to dry, they're ready to be used again.
Layers for comfort and protection
4 layers in such a thin gusset – that's what makes our period underwear functional and comfortable, without being bulky.
