Navigating the world of incontinence products can be overwhelming, but Dignity4You is committed to making this journey as comfortable and sustainable as possible. Here, we address some of the most frequently asked questions to help you make informed decisions about our washable products.

1. Determining Your Needs: Quantity and Sizing
How do I know how many products to order?

Transitioning to washable incontinence products is a step towards sustainability and comfort. The key to a seamless experience is having an adequate supply to ensure continuity while allowing for washing and drying times. We recommend purchasing two more items than your daily usage of disposable products. This allows for rotation and ensures that you always have a clean set available while others are being laundered.

For those new to our products, starting with a minimum of three ladies’ panties, men’s briefs, nappies, or booster pads is advisable. This number strikes a balance between practicality and efficiency. Additionally, if you’re ordering nappies, two waterproofs are sufficient for up to three nappies, and for more than three, we recommend having three or more waterproofs to ensure full coverage and protection.

2. Absorbency and Comfort: Choosing the Right Booster Pad
How much liquid can a booster pad hold?

Understanding the capacity of our booster pads allows for better planning and peace of mind. The Medium booster pad, designed for use with ladies’ panties or men’s briefs, has an absorbency of 150ml, making it suitable for light to moderate incontinence. On the other hand, the Large booster pad, which pairs with our adult nappy, offers a higher absorbency level of 300ml, catering to more substantial needs.

3. Cost-Effectiveness and Environmental Impact: The Benefits of Washable Products
Is it really cheaper to use washable products?

Yes, the financial and environmental benefits of washable incontinence products are significant. Over their lifetime, washable products are 3 to 6 times more cost-effective than their disposable counterparts, given they can be used at least 200 times. Moreover, they generate 99.8% less plastic waste, aligning with eco-friendly practices and contributing to a healthier planet. By reducing domestic waste volume, especially in settings like old age homes, these products also lessen the financial and environmental costs associated with treating disposable waste as medical waste.

4. Maintenance and Longevity: Washing and Drying Your Products
Can the ladies’ panties and men’s briefs be washed in a normal washing machine and tumble dried?

Yes, all our washable products, including ladies’ panties and men’s briefs, are designed for easy care. They can be washed in a standard washing machine at 40 degrees Celsius. While they can be tumble dried at low heat, we recommend air drying them whenever possible. Air drying not only extends the life of the waterproof layer but is also more energy-efficient. Please note that due to the thickness of the cotton absorption pad, air drying can take between 4 to 6 hours.

Choosing Dignity4You’s washable incontinence products is a step towards comfort, dignity, and environmental stewardship. By understanding how to select, use, and care for these products, you can ensure a smooth transition to a more sustainable and comfortable solution for incontinence management.
