In the scenario assessed, two TENA Washable Absorbent Underwear (washed 50 times at 40°) were compared to an equal mix of three disposables with one pair of regular underwear. 


Your washable absorbent underwear should be machine-washed on a 40° mild wash and can be put in the washing machine along with your other clothes in similar colours. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners. Once your underwear is dry, just hang them out to dry. 

We guarantee long-lasting functionality at a 40° mild wash. Using the product after more than 50 washes will not change the safety use of the product.
