I like the word “Poise,” which means embodying grace, elegance, balance, control, equilibrium. This describes how we should feel and carry ourselves at all times because if we feel and act this way, we are at peace with ourselves and unafraid of accepting life as it comes. This includes the intimate and very personal challenges women have to deal with such us our periods, perimenopause and menopause among other inconveniences. One of the issues that can come with being a woman and that few publicly admit to is light bladder leakage also known as LBL, which affects millions of women.
If you follow my blog, you know that I am all for awareness campaigns, especially those that empower women. This is why I accepted this campaign. At one time or another many of us deal with this issue and I am happy to raise awareness.
This campaign offers great advice for women suffering from light bladder leakage, but also helps women feel they are not alone. If this blog and Poise help you feel better about yourself I will be a happy camper! So, it turns out that many women are using period pads to deal with their light bladder leakage.

#RecycleYourPeriodPad uses for your old period pads you no longer need because now you are using New Poise® Thin-Shape Pads to address light bladder leakage:
Shoes need special care. In the old days, we used to stuff shoes with newspapers to help the shoe dry after a day of wear. Instead, you can now use your old period pads for this purpose. They will help the shoe last because they absorb dampness and absorb odors.
Floor drying pads:
I usually use rags to dry the floor after I mop. It´s occurred to me that instead of throwing out my old period pads I can stick them to the soles of my slippers and dry the floor with them. No shoe marks!
Natural air freshener:
Yep! Sometimes I put dryer sheets in a closet or drawer for a fresh scent. An alternative now is to spritz a favorite cologne of mine on a pad and use that instead.
Shirt hanger shape protection!
I have plenty of special hangers that will not leave weird shapes on the shoulders of my shirts, tees or jackets, but sometimes I run out and in a pinch I can use my old period pads. You can use them to line the shirt right where it may lose its shape.
What other fun, practical or even crafty uses can you come up with for your old period pads? I can´t wait to hear them!
