That’s where the aimerfeel period panties come in play!
The great thing about these panties is that there’s a cute little pocket where you can tuck away your wings. Practical and smart! Here’s how you’ll apply the pad:

Your guide to getting out period stains
Tip 1: Stay away from hot water.
You may be tempted to wash out stains with hot water, but blood has a tendency to harden when in contact with heat. So, we recommend soaking your underwear with cold or lukewarm water. And the sooner, the better! Because the blood left on the panties will oxidize and become difficult to clean as time passes.
Tip 2: Use a stain remover and laundry detergent
After soaking it in cold or lukewarm water, pre-treat the stain with a stain remover. Soak it for about 10 minutes and rinse out with cold water. Once the stain is gone, you can wash it with laundry detergent. If you don’t have a stain remover, you can also apply a few drops of detergent on the stain spot and pinch out the stain. If you want to extend the lifetime of your panties, don’t rub the fabric.
Tip 3: Stain remover alternatives in your house
If neither water or detergent does the trick, and you don’t have a stain remover on hand, these handy items can save your day.
- White Vinegar:
Pour it directly on the stain and let it soak for about 10 minutes. Then, take a paper towel and blot the stain out. You can repeat this process until the stain comes out. Wash it out with cold water and detergent to remove the smell of vinegar.
- Hydrogen Peroxide:
Apply the all-mighty household stain remover, hydrogen peroxide on the stain. Cover it with plastic wrap and a dark towel on top to prevent it from coming in contact with light, which is known to turn hydrogen peroxide into water. Be sure to only apply it on the stain, as panties with colorful print may fade.
Those were our tips and tricks to help alleviate some of the stress that comes with your period. Hope these smart and cute panties brighten up your day!
