The first time sanitary pads were mentioned was in the 4th century CE. They can now be found in nearly every household. Pads and pantyliners are made of a special material that absorbs and stores moisture while keeping the outside layer dry and soft.
That’s why pads and pantyliners might come in helpful in a variety of situations.
This article has put together some unusual ways in which you can use your pads and pantyliners. Check them out below:
1. Drawer freshener
You may make your drawers smell great by using pads and pantyliners. Place a pad or pantyliner in the drawer between your clothing, towels, and underwear and spray your favorite scent or a few drops of your favorite essential oil on it.
2. Screen cleaning
Sweat, dust, oils from your skin, sunscreen, and cosmetics – it all accumulates on your gadgets’ screens and turns into something absolutely revolting.
Pads and pantyliners are made of a soft, delicate substance that makes them a fantastic alternative to screen wipes. Clean your screen with a drop of water and a pantyliner.
3. Against corns
Most of us have at least one pair of shoes that appear sleek and elegant but give us blisters or corns all the time. Cut a few strips from a pantyliner and place them inside your shoes in the areas where you’re having problems.
4. Sliding in high heels
If you like to wear high heels, you’ve probably noticed that your feet sweat and start slipping or adhering to the footbed of your shoes on hot days. Insert pantyliners inside your shoes to avoid this uncomfortable feeling. They will absorb moisture and be completely undetectable.
5. The smell of your shoes
We smell when we sweat. Bacteria thrives in a warm, moist environment and multiplies rapidly, emitting a foul odor.
To avoid unpleasant odors, use pads instead of shoe insoles in your running shoes or work boots. The pads will not slip due to the sticky surface, and all moisture will be absorbed.
6. Uncomfortable bras
If you’ve ever had a situation where the underwire of your bra breaks through the fabric, you know how frustrating it can be. If your bra has an uncomfortable and pointy underwire, use pantyliners. Cut the pantyliner in half and wrap the soft side around the underwire.
7. Spill Cleanup
Pads have an extraordinary ability to absorb liquid, making them an excellent cleaning tool for small spills, especially if they occur in a car or on a carpet. Simply cover the spill with the soft side of the pad, apply moderate pressure to absorb as much liquid as the pad can absorb, and repeat if necessary.
