Pads, tampons and liners - it can be confusing to know what to use and when to use it. Underwear liners can be an important part of your feminine hygiene routine.So what is all the fuss about?
What is a liner?
An underwear liner is similar to a sanitary pad:
It’s the same shape as a pad; it’s just slimmer and lighter.
Just like a pad, it sticks inside your underwear. It's used to keep underwear fresh and clean.
When should I use a liner?
A liner can be used when a period is due.It can also be used at the end of a period when the flow is light or just spotting. Many girls wear them with a tampon as an extra precaution.A liner can also be used when vaginal discharge is heavy, which often occurs around the time of ovulation. Some women even like to use them every day to feel 'fresh', but this isn't necessary.
How do I use a liner?
An underwear liner is used the same way as a pad.First, wash your hands. Then take the liner from the packaging. Pull off the backing from the adhesive square and stick it securely onto the seat of your underpants.Make sure it's not too far forward or back.You can dispose of a used liner by rolling it up, wrapping it in toilet paper and putting it in a bin. You should never flush a liner down the toilet as it can cause serious blockages.
