01/6 here are five ways to make an alternative padWe.
Sometimes you arrive when you don't expect it, and the worst part is that you're not ready.
If you can't find a pharmacy nearby and need temporary mats urgently, it's helpful here.
02/6 cotton wool: Make a rectangular cotton wool pad wrapped in toilet paper.
If toilet paper is not available, you can even use a double-layer plain tissue roll.
This can last up to one to two hours, so you are safe!
03/6 toilet paper with toilet paper: putting a toilet paper roll in the bag is not bad at all.
You need to make a multi-layer tissue roll, one layer above, to avoid leakage of any kind.
04/6 using a rag: this rag can be a bit tricky as you need to check if the rag is a liquid sorbet.
Take a rag or two and fold it in a rectangle.
The advantage of the rag is that they can help prevent leakage for a long time.
But keep in mind that this is only a temporary solution and should not be mistaken for a permanent one.
05/6 towels: you may not know this, but the towels are really good cushions!
If your first day is heavy, you can add a plastic sheet under the towel to double prevent any leaks.
06/6 socks: make a temporary pad with your old socks.
You can pack a piece of toilet paper around the socks on your underwear to prevent it from shifting.
Socks are usually sweaty, so temporary mats can be made.
