How often do I need to replace Sea Pearls sponge tampons?
Every woman is unique, emotionally, and physically, so sponges will deteriorate at different rates. Your sponges may last up to a year or more depending on how you handle, clean, and care for them. Having an extra set of sponges for back up is a good way to keep from being caught on your cycle without in case something unforeseeable happens. Some women have a set at home, in the car, and at work. When traveling out of the house it is a useful to have a zip lock bag or our sponge tote with a zip lock for when you use a public restroom or if you cant rinse at work. That way you can store the un-rinsed sponge safely until you can clean it later in the comfort of your home. Many women put their used ones into their compost heaps or otherwise returning them to the earth. You can also boil your old sponges and use them for cosmetic or artistic purposes.
