Underpads are one of the many products available to manage incontinence and improve quality of life. They are designed to be placed above bed linens to prevent fluids from leaking through, keeping the mattress and bedding dry.

What are Bed Pads for Incontinence? 

Bed pads are large rectangular sheets with an absorbent core and waterproof backing. When moisture hits the top sheet, it is absorbed and locked in the absorbent core. The waterproof backing prevents wetness from seeping through.

What to consider when choosing Washable Bed Pads for Incontinence?

Finding the best washable bed pads for incontinence can bring a comfortable,  good night's sleep, and peace of mind to you and your loved ones. Here are some things you should keep in mind when choosing washable bed pads:

  • Size: Bed pads are available in different sizes. To decide what size you need, consider the size of the person using the underpad and the size of the surface you want to protect. If there is a lot of movement during sleep, make sure that the bed pad gives enough area coverage.
  • Absorbency:  Consider how much liquid the pad can absorb. Check the product package for the absorbency level; the general range is 1200 to 1500 mm. Also, consider how quickly the underpad soaks up moisture to ensure uninterrupted sleep.  
  • Odor control: Check the product description for built-in-odor control. 
  • Comfort: make sure that the material is gentle on the skin and does not cause irritation. It is also important to select a bed pad that is comfortable and doesn’t bunch up or make noise.

How to care for Washable Bed Pads?

  • Wash before first use.
  • Wash soiled pads separately; do not wash them with other clothes.
  • To remove stains, soak in cold water for 20 minutes before washing.
  • Use a small amount of bleach for white underpads.
  • Do not use fabric softener-it reduces absorbency and wicking capabilities. 
  • Tumble dry on medium heat. 
  • Do not iron. 
  • If the bed protector pads are still not fresh enough even after a wash, try soaking them in a mixture of water and baking soda for a few hours to eliminate urine odor.
