Detachable and washable sanitary napkins / Sanitary napkins for women

Detachable and washable sanitary napkins

In poverty-stricken areas, many women choose to wash the same homemade sanitary napkins all the year round that can easily cause serious infection problems. We divide disposable sanitary napkins into two parts, a waterproof layer and an absorption layer. When in use, they can be easily fixed to the waterproof layer below through the holes on both sides of the absorption layer. In this way, it is convenient to wash repeatedly, reduces the use cost, and is convenient to regularly replace the upper absorption layer that directly contacts the skin, which is more hygienic.
