Knitwear with silver ions is primarily bactericidal, therefore it is ideal for products that come into contact with the skin.

The positive silver ions contained in the threads block the development of microbes and inhibit their growth beyond that natural for the skin. In this way, unpleasant odors that arise when bacteria and fungi multiply are also reduced.

For the first time
you will have to build a trust with your panties. We recommend you, first, to try them all day at home. Before using your Mirabelles panties for the first time, we recommend that you machine wash them with similar colors and that it should be at 30 degrees/delicate cycle. The use of organic detergent is recommended.
But once this trust is done, you can finally enjoy this time for new things in life.
We would recommend to use one Mirabelles panties in the morning after the shower. This underwear will last for the all active day. Use the second underwear when you come back home and refresh yourself, or before going to sleep. You could leave this second Mirabelles panties on, all night. You will not need any other additional protections. Repeat as long as you have some blood or other things leaking out of you.
How to wash it?
We recommend first to soak the fabric quickly in cold water with salt to absorb the blood. It also works with wet potato starch or colorless vinegar. If not too much time, you can as well put it under the cold water and wring the blood out. After soaking is complete, perform a normal wash in the washing machine at 30 ℃ / delicate cycle or by hand with organic stain remover soap.
You have two options for drying your Mirabelles panties. Drying in the open air, which is a gentle and environmentally friendly solution. Or laying flat at home and not too close to any heaters.
Remember taking care of your Mirabelles panties is like taking care of our planet. The longer you keep them, the happier the planet and the wallet will be!

*Before starting the wash
We would like to remind you that blood is totally natural. Try to get closer to your own blood. Rinsing your underwear under cold water before wash will give you some time to get closer and closer to it. Don’t be afraid, it will be alright.
