How to Wash a Reusable Underpad
- Once the underpad is used, you’ll want to make sure you wash it thoroughly, following the steps below
- Machine wash the underpad alone, or with other reusable underpads (never with other clothes)
- Ensure the washing machine is only at 85% capacity or less when washing bed pads
- Avoid fabric softeners as these can compromise absorbency
- The heavier the underpad, the longer the drying time. For these absorbent pads, expect them to take a little longer than typical clothing to dry
- Remove the underpad from the dryer within five minutes of when the cycle is complete
What’s the difference between a disposable underpad and a reusable underpad?
Disposable underpads and reusable underpads are both excellent choices for those looking to protect their furniture from incontinence and other moisture. The biggest difference between these two products is that disposable underpads are single-use, while reusable can be washed and used again and again. Reusable underpads tend to be less absorbent than disposable underpads as well.
Will a reusable underpad be highly absorbent?
Reusable underpads tend to be less absorbent than disposable underpads. Many caregivers prefer to place a reusable underpad beneath a disposable option for additional protection.
Can I fold reusable underpads?
It is not recommended to fold reusable underpads. The top side of reusable underpads is absorbent, and the bottom is waterproof - if you were to fold an underpad so that these sides were not placed appropriately, you or your loved one would experience leaks.
Can I cut reusable underpads into smaller pieces?
It is not recommended to cut reusable underpads. Since reusable underpads have fluff in their core, cutting them apart would cause that fluff to spill out (and the underpads would no longer be absorbent).
