8 ways to use your pad like you never imagined


Are sanitary pads only useful during menstruation? What nothing! You will be amazed at the number of different and useful things you can do with it!

If you are reading this article and you are a girl, most likely, the tips you will learn today will change your life. This is because you should use a tampon like any other woman who menstruates, but you have no idea that this “little friend” of yours can also save you from other types of trouble.

A good example of an unknown use of pads is to use them as an insole. That’s right, shoe insoles! Doesn’t it sound brilliant?

And what about using a tampon to touch up your makeup in those times of trouble? It can also come in handy when you need a slipper in the middle of the day, you know?

Below, as you will have the opportunity to see, these and other extremely useful tips will be listed. They may seem a little silly at first glance, but in that time of need you will see how useful they will be!

Discover 8 ways to use your pad like you never imagined:

1. Insole

That new shoe that hurts your foot will never be a problem again if you simply use an absorbent pad as an insole.

In addition to making the shoes softer, a thicker absorbent can also make the shoe slightly larger than your foot fit better.

2. Eye mask

You know those masks with cosmetics to alleviate dark circles? If you don’t have one of these or a chamomile tea bag, for example, you can soak your pad in some tea or product specific to the area and use it as an eye mask.

To do this, simply leave the pad on your eyes for a few minutes and relax.

3. Bra protector

Bras with cups, over time, tend to leave the wire below the bust exposed, right? And that can be really annoying!

If you don’t want to lose a bra just because of this, you can cut a thin pad into strips and place one of them around the wire. This will coat it and get rid of the problem.

4. Liquid cleaning

What does a pad do best? That’s right, absorb it. So why not use it in any such emergency?

When you spill some liquid, for example, you can use one of these to clean up the dirt. Everything will be clean in a minute.

5. Makeup Sponge

Did you bring the powder, but forgot the sponge to touch up your makeup? In times of emergency like these, use a sanitary pad!

Applying different types of powder products will be perfect, be it blush, bronzer and, of course, your face powder.

6. Nail polish removal

If you don’t have cotton at home, you can soak a pad with nail polish remover and do the job.

Best of all, you won’t need to use more than one pad to remove nail polish from all your hand nails and, perhaps, even your toe nails.

7. Wipe away sweat

If you are sweating a lot and want to get rid of the “melted” look or if you want to remove excess oil from your face, don’t hesitate to use a pad. As we said, its function is to absorb!

8. Makeshift flip-flops

Who has never gone to get their toenails done and forgotten to bring that pair of flip-flops that leave their toes free? If the place doesn’t offer disposable slippers, you can improvise one with two night-time pads, but elongated and with a thicker coating.

You just need to peel off the sticker and stick the pad to the soles of your feet. Cool huh?

9. Remove makeup

When taking off your makeup, your tampon can also be very useful. Cute, it won’t harm your skin in the absence of cotton pads, for example.

You just need to soak your pad with makeup remover and rub it directly onto your skin.
