Basic or Wing StyleUse with: Long Pad, Lunapanties
Set of 2 Long Basic or Long Wing Inserts. Watch VideoInserts enhance the absorbency of Pads and Lunapanties to meet your particular needs, and will last approximately as long per use as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. A single Pad will last you through a full day of your cycle, provided that the Insert is changed before soaking through. Unlike Pantyliners, Inserts must be used in conjunction with a Pad or Lunapanty.
How many Inserts do I need? You can expect to use 1 Pad or Lunapanty per day, changing your Inserts 1 - 6 times, depending on how light or heavy your periods are. When your Insert becomes saturated, replace with a fresh, dry Insert. Multiple Inserts may be added (up to 4 at a time for very heavy flow) to help prevent leaks.
Dimensions Long Basic Inserts are approx. 12" (30cm) long and 2.5" (6cm) wide. Long Wing Inserts are approx. 12" (30cm) long and 5.5" (14cm) wide across the wings.
Construction Inserts are made from 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece with serged edges.
Performance Inserts enhance the absorbency of Lunapads and Lunapanties to meet your particular needs. Lunapads will last approximately as long (per use) as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. Additional mindfulness may be advisable, however, as Lunapads are made with natural, more porous fibers and do not contain added chemicals or absorbing agents. Given this, Lunapads users need to be mindful of changing Inserts as frequently as their flow dictates in order to prevent soaking through the Pad. Frequent changing of the Inserts significantly enhances the comfort and performance of the Pad.
Inserts can be washed by hand or machine in any temperature with your regular detergent. Pre-soaking or rinsing in cold water prior to washing is recommended, but not always necessary, particularly if the pads are not heavily saturated. Please note that if pads are being soaked, soaking water must be changed daily.
We recommend Nellie‚Äôs Natural Laundry Soda for regular cleaning, and Buncha Farmers Stain Remover to perk up stained pads. Heavily stained Inserts may also occasionally benefit from machine wash and dry in hot settings.
Please avoid the use of chlorine bleach or fabric softeners.
Inserts can be added as desired by inserting the ends under the ric-rac bands on a Pad. Wing Inserts rest comfortably against the inner thigh, providing added lateral (side-to-side) protection. Multiple Inserts may be inserted for increased absorbency. Pads can be refreshed throughout the day or night as desired by removing and replacing the Inserts. Please note that Inserts are not intended to be worn without a Pad.
