18 Other Uses Of Sanitary Pads And Tampons You Probably Don't Know Of

Many of us have been there: the protective covering on the tampons in our purse or stuffed under the bathroom sink have torn and the contents have begun to unravel. The sanitary napkins we've carried around for months or jammed into a suitcase or the glove compartment have been compromised. Perhaps we bought the wrong size or type and we don't want them to go to waste, or we got some free samples that don't quite work for us. So maybe each of these wayward, forgotten, or slightly battered tampons or sanitary pads can be put to work-by doing something else other than what they were designed to do. You might be thinking it is only used for mentrual purpose but I tell you "you might be wrong" did I just say that oh yes I did, so why not let us examine the other uses of the Tampons or Sanitary Pads.
