How to Use and Care for these Vitals
Period Undies hate high heat. Period.
Leak proof capacity is essential for your Vitals, they hold the flow to keep you dry. The maximum heat that these barriers can take is up to 40°. That's much less than hot water from the shower or faucet. It works well when you rinse and wash them in cold water. Dry them under the sun later, sunlight is great to kill out any odours or moisture. If you really need to dry them on a rainy winter day, do so in a dryer with no heat to low heat setting mode only (less than 40°). Your undies last much longer if you follow these instructions.
Regular Dryer Settings
Best not to use a dryer. If you really
have to, do so in no or low heat setting only.
Rinsing with Hot Water
Leak proof barriers get damaged in heat.
Rinse and wash in cold water.
Bleach or Softeners
They can damage the fabrics. Add a few drops of fragrance oil to water to freshen.

About the product
What can Vitals period undies do?
How much flow can they actually hold?
Vitals can hold up to 3 regular tampons worth. Some ladies say they hold a bit more than that, its safe to say they can perfectly work solo on your medium-heavy days.
Do I need to wear it with a pad/tampon?
You decide! If your flow is very heavy, you can choose to team it up with other products. You can also wear them solo and change into a new pair when you need to.
How many undies do I need to cover my period with period underwears?
A set of 5 should be able to cover a 5-7 day cycle.
It's best to rinse them right after you use. You can follow it with a hand wash or machine wash with a gentle detergent after a rinse.
Yes you can! Remember that period undies are capable to take only light bladder leakages tho. Like one of those accidental leaks after a big sneeze.
