Wanna join me as I recycle period pads and collect girly dresses? I promise, it’s not as gross as it sounds!
Summer is here! I love wearing lightweight maxi dresses. Throw one on and done! Easy peasy. Plus, I like ’em long so I can skip leg shaving without being being self conscious (though I often don’t care either way).
eShatki has some of my favorite dresses. They have great sales prices, too.
Unfortunately, I’ve had some LBL issues. That’s “light bladder leakage.” I don’t want tinkle running down my legs in my cute summer dresses! And I know I’m not alone – 1 in 3 women experience LBL.
That’s why I’m thankful for Poise Thin-Shape pads. They are made specifically for LBL. They are thinner and more flexible than regular maxi pads that are used for periods. They are the perfect protection under summer maxi dresses. They are 40% thinner than period pads and 3X more absorbent! Get your free Poise samples!
So what do you do with all those period pads you’ve been using in case of light bladder leakage? Well, it’s time to #RecycleYourPeriodPad ! Here are two ideas!
#RecycleYourPeriodPad for cleaning.
My 14-year-old wanted purple hair, which meant dye got on the counter. No worries! I squirted hand sanitizer on a pad and it wiped right up!
#RecycleYourPeriodPad to make an eye mask!
Peel the backing off two pads and stick them together. Cut off the wings, if they have them. Tie the wrappers together to make a strap. Use a hole punch to make holes to attach the strap. Add some essential oil and relax with your new DIY eye mask.
What causes LBL?
Well, there are tons of different reasons people experience light bladder leakage, but some include:
- Physical changes from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
- Being overweight
- Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson’s disease
- Bladder or urinary tract infections
- Bladder irritants (certain foods and beverages)
- Everyday triggers like coughing, sneezing and laughing
