Why Choose Washable Diapers, Pads?

Disposable pads and underwear are generally more absorbent than washables. It is mainly because of super-absorbent acrylic polymers (SAP), which helps to hold fluid between 50 to 5000 times of the product weight. 
It sounds good, doesn’t it? 
But on the other side of the story, it may cause skin irritation or infection after wearing them for an extended time. Moreover, disposable products can be costly in the long run. So it makes complete sense most people prolong the number of hours of wearing these high absorbency products. But that is a poor hygiene practice. 
And hence, here are the eight reasons why washable products are a better choice:
  1. Cost-effective
    You may not enjoy shopping when you are first buying washable products. But they can be a saviour in the long run. Just imagine how much you could save if a washable product can last up to 100 to 250 of washings with no-repeat purchases?
  2. More breathable
    Washable pants are designed with comfortable fabrics that are suitable for an active lifestyle. And its inner pads are made from cloths that are breathable not to upset your skin to prevent irritation and discomfort.
  3. Fewer irritants on the skin
    Most washable products are made from materials that are natural and gentle to the skin. They are free from synthetic materials that may contain harmful chemical and residue on the skin.
  4. More discreet
    No more bulky and bulgy. Especially washable pants, no one will notice what you are wearing underneath. And both washable pants and pads are made from rustle-free materials. No more embarrassing moment. 
  5. More comfortable
    Washable products are more comfortable as they are tightly fit our body shape. You won’t feel baggy or weighty. For pants, they are designed like regular underwear, including the materials; while for pads, they are not slipping or bunching. 
  6. Better with a variant of designs
    Washable products are designed with discretion to suit people's everyday active lifestyle. Unlike disposable products, washables have different designs from aesthetic look to practical use.
  7. Easy to clean
    It may sound like a hassle to clean them. But think about that, is it a hassle to clean your clothes? Furthermore, most of the washable products are washing machine friendly. 
  8. Eco-friendly
    Certainly, washable products reduce the number of products in landfills as most washable products last a long time.  
So does it mean those washable products are better?
There are always pros and cons to every product. Most importantly, pick what fits your lifestyle and needs best. If you have light, washable products are recommended. People with heavy urinary or faecal are otherwise.
