As I set out to create a blog about reusable menstrual products, I knew I wanted to start by explaining how to take care of them.
When I started explaining how to take care of them, I realized quickly that it can get confusing and very wordy to explain. At the same time, it's also NOT really that difficult to care for them. I wanted to find a way to both communicate the important details that make this process work smoothly AND show how simple the process really is.
So I wrote some detailed posts explaining all the details of washing and storing cloth pads. Then I took all that information and distilled it into visual form in the form of this flow chart.
Behold! The simplest way I can think of (so far) to demonstrate the most important details about how to care for reusable cloth pads.
