Guess what: you can buy washable sanitary pads, but you can also buy reusable tampons! They are available in many variations, ready to use or as a needlework pattern on Esty.com.
Using reusable tampons is simple: roll it up very tight and insert as you normally would. What follows is more laborious: rinse with cold water if possible and store in a waterproof pouch or immediately put them in cold water with some vinegar until they can be washed. You can wash them in the washing machine and put them in the dryer. Detailed care instructions are included with the order.
These handmade tampons made from unbleached and undyed cotton are from A Witch’s Cupboard, price € 2,84 per piece, excluding shipping.
