Poise Pads

Have you guys tried Poise Pads yet? If you haven’t you can get a FREE Sample so you can try it out without having to pay a dime! These pads are ideal for those who experience light bladder leakage (LBL). Did you know that 1 in 3 women experience LBL?! I had no idea that many women had this issue, and most are using period pads to manage it, when you could be using Poise!

Just as no two women are alike, there’s no single reason that LBL happens. Some of the most common things that lead to uninvited leaks include:
•Physical changes from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
•Being overweight
•Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson’s disease
•Bladder or urinary tract infections
•Bladder irritants (certain foods and beverages)

Poise Pads So what is the difference, Poise offers a dryness that isn’t offered in period pads. If you are jogging along, sneeze, or laugh a bit to hard, and have a little leakage, you can ensure Poise will capture it, and you won’t feel really wet down there. They offer leak-block sides for outstanding protection! Plus they are nice and thin and offer a thin-flex design so you can move around and not feel the bulk of a pad.

Make the right choice when it comes to managing LBL, and ditch the period pads! But, what to do with all those poor, unused period pads just collecting dust!?! Here is a fun way to #RecycleYourPeriodPad, you know I all about doing different things with products!

So I thought to take my old pads and use them for collecting condensation off our cups in the car this Spring and Summer! It is so hot out already, we have had days that are almost in the 90’s, and I hate when you have a cup in the car, and at the bottom of the cup holder is lots of water from the condensation!

Condensation on cupSo here is my quick and simple way to #RecycleYourPeriodPad in our household!

Period Pad

Take your pad and cut it to fit into your cup holder. I just put it next to the holder to measure. Doesn’t have to be perfect.

Pad recycle

Then place it in the bottom of the holder. I had mine go up on the sides a bit, so it would cover more area. Then you are ready to drop in your cup that has condensation and let it get soaked up with this pad. Then just take the pad and throw it away when your done, and your cup holder is nice and dry! Haha, what a fun unique way to recycle those old pads! 

Poise Pads

Stay fresh and confident with Poise® pads and liners. They’re designed specifically for Light Bladder Leakage (LBL), which make them an easy choice for the 1 in 3 women who experiences LBL.

    That is such a great idea to use it to soak up condensation. I don’t know if my hubby would crazy about having it in his car, but it is practical!

  2. Crystal says

    People are so creative. I definitely wouldn’t have thought of that on my own. Just don’t tell the kids what they are, and things will be okay.

  3. Jason Nail says

    Didn’t think I would find that information useful and then you went and used them to soak up condensation. Awesome. I used to conduct science projects which used the little absorbent spheres from the inside of a diaper. I wonder if this works the same way?

  4. Scott says

    I can vouch for what Chrysa said. I don’t think I’d like that in my car. You guys can do what you want to your minivans, but stay away from our stuff! 😉

    I don’t have leakage issues, but there is a whole group of moms in my zumba class who do & there is always a collective sigh when a song with jumps comes on!

  6. Grace Hodgin says

    These seem to be very helpful products for those that would need them. Nice to know there are other things they can be used for as well.

  7. Dawn says

    I dodge a bullet on this one, but I have a couple of friends with multiple kids who have this issue. I know eventually it will get me, but it’s nice not to have to deal with it yet!

  8. Shauna says

    Ugh, having three kids did it’s damage to me. I definitely have to hold it when I sneeze, lol. Thanks for the coupon

  9. gingermommyrants says

    It is great that there are options for women with LBL. If i was to recycle my period pads i would donate them to a woman’s shelter.

  10. Jennifer says

    I love the idea of using them in cup holders for the condensation! I am always drinking iced tea int he car and this is such a problem for me.

  11. Char W says

    What a fantastic idea. I’m always looking for ways to take product and make multiple uses out of them.

  12. Danielle K says

    That is such a good way to use it that I’ve never thought of! I totally leak a little since I had my son so I could use these pads for sure.

  13. Elizabeth O. says

    What a great tip. Not sure though if the husband would agree. But who says he’ll know what it is.?

  14. Donna Ward says

    That actually is a good idea to keep my cupholder area cleaner from spilled drinks and melted chocolate 🙂 I would have to not let my hubby and son know about it tho! lol
