Nontraditional Ways To Use Your Unused Pads!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you have probably came across some posts where I talk about the fact that my bladder kind of has a mind of it's own. Every since my spinal cord injury in 2012, I've struggled with finding ways help prevent LBL (light bladder leakage). I tend to always wear some sort of protection under my clothes. When I first started looking into wearing pads as a form of protection, I would grab my old period pads and use those. Quickly I learned this was NOT the best use for them and I needed to find something that was made specifically for LBL. Poise pads offers exactly what I was looking for and made protection from LBL a lot easier. (get a FREE sample pack HERE)

So, what can I do with all those unused period pads laying around? Here's a few ideas I came up with. Let me know in the comments below what you'd do to #RecycleYourPeriodPad!

- Donate any unused / unopened boxes to your local woman's shelter or homeless shelter. Make sure to call and see if they will accept these before trying to donate but I know if they do, these would come in handy!

- If you are out on the lake or away from your home, you can use these as a quick way to keep your hands from being cold while holding drinks. They fit around perfectly!

- If you're anything like me, you know the struggle that is spilling something. I'm so clumsy and I feel like I'm always making a mess. Using your unused pads to help clean up spills can be an easy way to clean up dirty messes without ruining your good washcloths. 

- Have a cut + you're without a first aid kit? Grab an unused pad to use to compress any wound. I know I tend to carry around old pads more than I do a first aid kit so this one is insanely handy for me!
