How they work
WUKA Period Pants are underwear that FULLY ABSORBS your period and doesn't let it leak, so you can wave goodbye to disposable pads and tampons!
THE POWER OF LAYERS
Each pair of WUKA Period Pants has a super absorbent gusset made up of many layers. The middle layers absorb and lock-in the blood, whilst the outer, moisture-wicking layers keep you feeling secure and dry. Each of our leak-proof layers are very breathable to reduce any smells and chance of infection.
All of our period pants feature a high and wide rise gusset to lock-in period blood and urinary leaks, and our Basics Hipster style boasts an extra-high gusset that goes all the way to the back waistband, making them perfect for a secure and worry-free night’s sleep!
HOW TO WASH AND CARE YOUR WUKA PERIOD PANTS
RINSE OR WASH
After use, give them a quick rinse. It’s up to you where you choose to rinse your pants - some of us prefer to use a sink, some prefer to rinse in the shower, and others even have a dedicated WUKA-rinsing bucket! (Now that’s some true WUKA love!)
Pop your WUKAs in the washing machine with similar, dark coloured garments and wash at 30 to 40 degrees. (We recommend 30, as it’s better for the environment!).
Our Seamless, Swim Brief and Re-Purpose pants should be washed in cold water. We also recommend washing any WUKAs with mesh or lace in a wash bag. This will help prolong the life and the strength of the mesh.
Use your favourite detergent as normal, but please don’t use fabric conditioner. Fabric conditioner can reduce the absorbency of your period pants over time, which isn’t ideal.
Alternatively, WUKA Period Pants love to be hand washed. Not everyone has the time for this, but hand washing can extend their lifespan.
Air dry your WUKA Period Pants outside on the line or indoors on an airer - it’s up to you (or the weather). They tend to dry faster when they’re inside out, too.
HOW MANY PERIOD PANTS DO I NEED?
The amount of period pants you may need depends on how heavy your flow is and how long your periods tend to last. We’re all different. Some people have light periods and some of us experience much heavier flows! Some of us bleed for about 3-4 days and others bleed for 7-10 days.
We tend to find that 5-7 pairs is best for most of our customers, considering they last up to 2 years. But, of course, you know your flow best!
