Period Underwear 101
We get a lot of questions about period underwear. Here are the most common.
What is Period Underwear?
We like to call it period care—upgraded. Saalt Wear is our naturally inspired collection of reusable period underwear that absorbs your period flow and replaces disposable period care products. It is also the perfect backup to an inserted product like a tampon or cup.
Will period underwear smell?
No, when cared for properly, your Saalt Wear should not smell! Saalt Wear is treated with a bio-based solution for odor control that removes sweat odor and eliminates bacteria to keep you fresh and odor-free.
Can I put it in the dryer?
We recommend always hanging your period wear to dry. High heat can degrade the elastics and fabric over time and may damage the textile technology that makes Saalt Wear anti-odor and leak-free.
Can I wear them all day?
Go with your flow! How long you can wear your Saalt Wear before needing to change will depend on your flow and the absorbency level of the style you choose and whether you are using it as a backup to a cup or tampon.
Why you'll love Saalt Wear
Can hold up to 3 regular pads.
Wear throughout the day and/or night depending on your flow.
Our gusset is only 2mm thick. That’s as thin as a single nickel!
1 pair of Saalt Wear saves hundreds of pads and tampons from landfills.

Does period underwear leak?
I am in love with these undies! I wore them on my heavier days for half a day, and they did a great job. No leaks, no stains! The fit was perfect; great for when you are wearing low rise pants.
