Wearing & Use
You can wear the WUKA medium all night or around 8 hours on any menstruating days. It holds at least 15 ml of period flow or light leaks – around 2-3 tampons worth.
WUKA period pants last for at least 2 years but with many washes the underwear will eventually become less absorbent. After that you can still use them for light days, so you might have to only replace few pairs every two years or so.

Washing & Care
Washing is simple and easy and can be done in three ways but always rinse after wearing to prevent stains.
1. You can hand wash it and line dry.
2. You can chuck them in with your blacks and line dry.
3. Machine wash cold or at 40° and line dry.
Drying advice: As the underwear has several layers, it takes a longer time to dry than lingerie. So while washing ensure that your underwear has gone through full spin. This decreases the time to dry your underwear.
You can also put your underwear in the airing cupboard or by the radiator or dry in the sun.
Do not tumble dry
Do not use Fabric Softener as this could adversely affect the fabrics.
