I am just wondering what people’s opinions are on wearing washable products instead of disposable ones. I am passionate about caring for the environment and would like to try the washable option. My incontinence is light-moderate urinary (mostly light) and occurs during exercise and certain movements. However, i know they are often not as heavy and not as reliable as disposable. Is it worth trying some washable pants or am I better off sticking to disposable? (Someone who has tried washables would be useful to talk to) thanks, Michelle
If you have light incontinence, there is no harm in trying washables. They can also be economically friendly over time, as they are durable and do not need to be purchased often.
You can find many pants that are designed specially for women and feel like normal underwear.
Would you like a specific design recommending?
Hi Michelle, I am also urinary incontinent, and recently have been looking into the washable products. I too am worried about my impact on the environment. each disposable product takes up to 500 years to decompose… we all need to start thinking about our planet. I have moderate to heavy incontinence. so the products I have been trying might suite you for overnight. the first washable product I purchased was from an online company called “the nappy lady” it is an adult-sized washable slip. with velcro fixings, it has microfiber inserts, and I got to say it works, even for me. I do have to add another insert to increase the absorbency though. (product name,Bambinex pro) just noticed they also have a website. the second product i use is from the USA, and the shipping and customs fees make them expensive. but they are good. is a company called “Threaded Armour” which is a sister company of “Supperundies” these are pull up pants with padding inside. if you wanted to view the product just type Threaded Armour into utube, and a lovely lady called Laura who is very helpful show you the product fainge. I wish you the best of luck with your serch Jon
