Default Reusable sanitary products

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere here yet.

Sorry about the gory details to anyone who doesn't like thinking about periods! Skip past the waffle to the links if you like!

I realised as I was on the loo yesterday that I'd be in trouble if I couldn't get to the shop and buy some new tampons/pantliners, and that any extended outdoor living would cause serious problems if I didn't have some kind of waterproof and reusable thing to stick in my knickers. Doing a quick search for them so I have some personal supplies to go with my bogroll stacks for when TSHTF has made me wonder why on earth I'm not using them already. So, for the benefit of any women who might need them either for general use or for part of a survival kit, here's some links that I've found. I've never used any of the sites or the products so I can't make any recommendations.

And the ubiquitous wiki article, lol:

'Lady products' are overlooked far too often.

I've never tried a moon cup, but my best mate has and she says it's great. Boots used to sell them not sure if they still do.
In an emergency a piece of natural sponge with cotton tread stiched into it will make an excellent tampon
I do think tampons and sanitary towels are something worth stocking up on, as they both have other uses.
Tampons
used in hospitals to stop nose bleeds!
also make excellent firelighters, place tampon into the fire and light the string
Sanitary towels
make excellent dressings for burns or injuries as
they are clean (the indivually wrapped ones are best)
they do not stick to the wound
they are designed to absorb blood

I also think sanitary products would be usefull to trade

The natural sponge idea does work great,the string is not needed though.This practice is already common with ladies of the evening and has been for years.

I haven't tried the mooncup, so have no opinion but I do use the sponges. They're great but you do need to wear a towel to catch the leaks, I use organic unbleached washable ones. It's more effort than the throwaway stuff but it's a good feeling to know nothing is being thrown away! and I put the washing water on my veggie patch. Also it's good to know that I'm not letting any nasty chemicals near my bod.

off topic a bit - but was in Scotland recently and driving up to Oban - had a soer stomach and had to well - run into some woods lol - i recommend MOSS!!! that stuff is soo absorbent and soft.

it would have been "shit" without the story - sorry couldn't help myself :P

Can't make up my mind if that's brilliant or disgusting! I'm sitting here laughing my head off at the idea. I'm going with brilliant I think. Nice one.

I was wondering about this today. It wasn't something I had taken into consideration before.

I don't think I could use a Mooncup though but it is a good idea.

My wife has used the mooncup for several years now. She says she'd never even consider going back to other methods.

I hadn't heard of it so I googled it.
It's not quite right to use those for a period.
