Alright ladies… do you dread sneezing or even avoid laughing because you might tinkle in your panties?  It’s nothing to be embarrassed about and further more it’s important to know that you are not alone.  In fact one in three women experience light bladder leakage (LBL) – those little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing, and exercise.  You might be wondering why we have to deal with LBL in the first place and unfortunately there is no single answer.  LBL can be caused by many different factors including physical changes from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause, being overweight, complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic illnesses like diabetes, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease, bladder or urinary tract infections, and bladder irritants.  After having four children over a seven year time span I deal with LBL on a daily basis so managing it effectively is very important to me.

I highly recommend new Poise Thin-Shape pads which are 40% thinner than original Poise brand pads and are designed specifically for LBL.  They feature Super Absorbent Material (SAM) as well as a Thin-Flex design for extraordinary protection that’s three times drier than period pads.

Poise Thin-Shape Pads

Speaking of period pads… those are for periods, not LBL.  Period pads are only needed one week out of the month and maybe you don’t even need them at all.  Poise Thin-Shape Pads are what you need to stay dry day or night when dealing with LBL. 

But what can you do with all of those unused period pads?  Check out the hash tag #RecycleYourPeriodPad and you will find tons of practical as well as silly ideas.  For example when I went to clean my white tile kitchen floor and realized I was out of Swiffer Wet Jet cleaning pads I had to improvise.  What better way to recycle my period pad than turning it into a Swiffer cleaning pad?


I simply unwrapped two period pads, removed the backing, applied them to the Swiffer Wet Jet, and cleaned my entire kitchen floor.  And guess what.  I didn’t have to scrub as hard as when I used the actual Swiffer cleaning pads… I’m pretty sure I’ll continue to use the period pads for this chore!


And for those times that I just don’t feel like cleaning I have another trick up my sleeve.  Just grab two period pads, stick them to the bottom of your kiddos feet, and you’ve created magic cleaning slippers.  They can slide around on the floor while simultaneously cleaning.  Mean while you can kick back on the couch and watch a comedy with the confidence that your leaks will be taken care of thanks to Poise.


If you are the 1 in 3 women with light bladder leakage and are ready to ditch the period pads be sure to visit the Poise website where you can request free samples.  Once you give Poise a try you’ll definitely be ready to #RecycleYourPeriodPad!

Thank you to Poise for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to #RecycleYourPeriodPads!

    I don’t have leakage issues, but there is a whole group of moms in my zumba class who do & there is always a collective sigh when a song with jumps comes on!

  3. What a unique idea! I never would have thought to use them for that!

    I got a bunch of liners for next to nothing a while back and I still have them. Never thought of using them for cleaning. Novel idea!

    What a clever idea for pads! I would never have thought of this but it is really probably more afordable than the cleaning pads they sell. And the kids would have fun!
