Inserts enhance the absorbency of Pads and Lunapads Underwear, and can be replaced throughout the day, keeping you dry and comfortable.
Set of 4 Maxi Basic Inserts.
Maxi Inserts enhance the absorbency of Lunapads Maxi Pads and Luna Undies to meet your particular needs, and will last approximately as long per use as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. A single pad or pair of underwear will last through a full day of your cycle, provided that the insert is changed before soaking through. Unlike Pantyliners, Inserts must be used in conjunction with a Classic Pad or Lunapads Underwear
How many Inserts do I need?
You can expect to use 1 Pad or pair of Lunapads Underwear per day, changing your Inserts 1 - 6 times, depending on how light or heavy your periods are. When your Insert becomes saturated, replace with a fresh, dry Insert. Multiple Inserts may be added (up to 3 at a time for very heavy flow) to help prevent leaks.
Maxi Basic Inserts are approx. 10" (25cm) long and 2.5" (6cm) wide
Construction: Inserts are made from 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece.
Performance: Inserts enhance the absorbency of Lunapads and Luna Undies to meet your particular needs. Lunapads will last approximately as long (per use) as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. Additional mindfulness may be advisable, however, as Lunapads are made with natural, more porous fibers and do not contain added chemicals or absorbing agents. Given this, Lunapads users need to be mindful of changing the Insert as frequently as their flow dictates in order to prevent soaking through the Pad. Frequent changing of the Inserts significantly enhances the comfort and performance of the Pad.
Wash & Care
Inserts can be washed by hand or machine in any temperature with your regular detergent. Pre-soaking or rinsing in cold water prior to washing is recommended, but not always necessary, particularly if the Inserts are not heavily saturated. Do not soak for longer than 24 hours.
We recommend Nellie’s Natural Laundry Soda for regular cleaning, and Buncha Farmers Stain Remover to perk up stained Inserts. Heavily stained Inserts may also occasionally benefit from machine wash and dry in hot settings.
Please avoid the use of chlorine bleach or fabric softeners.
How to Use
Inserts can be added as desired by inserting the ends under the ric-rac bands on a Pad. Wing Inserts rest comfortably against the inner thigh, providing added lateral (side-to-side) protection. Multiple Inserts may be used for increased absorbency. Pads can be refreshed throughout the day or night as desired by removing and replacing the Inserts. Please note that Inserts are not intended to be worn without a Pad.
