Always start by washing your hands. If the pad or pantiliner you’re using is in a wrapper, remove it and save it for disposing the used pad later.
Now, remove the backing of the pad (sometimes the wrapper doubles as the backing).
Center the sticky side of the pad in the bottom panel of your panties (the area that goes between your legs). Be sure not to put it too far to the back or front. If your pad or pantiliner has wings, remove the backing (if necessary) and wrap them around the underside of your panties.
To dispose of a used pad or pantiliner, pull it off your panties and roll it up like a sleeping bag in tissue or the wrapper from a fresh pad. Then toss it in the trash. But remember, never flush a pad or pantiliner down the toilet.
