Picture this. It’s a Sunday morning, sunlight is streaming in, and your period just got over. Life is good.
You head to the bathroom only to see- you’ve wrecked your favourite pair of undies. Sigh. Your period may be over, but it’s leaving behind its mark in the form of unsightly spotting and discharge stains on your underwear.
Now while those stains may be universally undesirable, let it be known that the actual discharge is not! While type and frequency vary from person to person, vaginal discharge plays an important role in flushing out dead cells and keeping your intimate area healthy.
It’s a natural system refined through years of evolution, and you should only be concerned if your discharge either looks or smells significantly different from its usual form.
Unfortunately, evolution didn’t account for overpriced lacy thongs. That’s where your new savior, the humble panty liner, comes into play. Think a sanitary pad, but more low-key (it’s thinner, smaller, and holds less liquid). It can’t be used to soak up the actual blood during your period, but can be used for virtually anything else.
When To Use A Panty Liner
While panty liners are an inarguably handy discovery, it’s natural to feel slightly guilty about being wasteful with them when you may not actually need it. Speaking of natural, we’ve got you covered. Pee Safe’s panty liners, like our pads, are 100% biodegradable and made of organic cotton. So you can put your underwear first, knowing you’ve done your part to contribute to a more sustainable world.
