FAQs

HOW DO I (RE)USE MY APPLICATOR?

We've designed our reusable tampon applicator to be easy and intuitive, but initially it does require a bit more care than using a disposable applicator - you're saving the planet after all. Like all new things, it might take a few goes to find what works best for you. We're sure you'll soon find your own style, but here are some steps to get you going...

First get to know your applicator. It's made up of three parts: The Lid + The Applicator + The Plunger

Wash your hands, remove the applicator lid, unwrap your tampon and unravel the string. Peel back the applicator petal with your index finger and load the tampon from the top. Works especially well for larger tampon.

Our applicator works with any standard tampon. There are three different ways of inserting your tampon into the applicator - depending on the size of your tampons, you might want to try a few different ways.

Once your tampon is loaded, insert the applicator into your vagina at a 45 degree angle. Then use the plunger to push the tampon into your vagina. Stop pushing just before the plunger clicks into the applicator - your tampon is now in place.

When it's time to remove your DAME tampon, pull it out gently and slowly. (Unlike most tampons which have a plastic overstock, ours are made from pure organic cotton).

HOW DO I WASH MY DAME REUSABLE APPLICATOR IN A PUBLIC BATHROOM?

If you feel comfortable washing your applicator in public, simply rinse with cold water at the sink, dry thoroughly and pop back into your storage pouch.

We designed the DAME reusable tampon applicator to be sleek, stylish and easy to use in both private and public toilets but totally understand that you may not always want to wash your applicator in public. That's why you can also clean your applicator with loo roll in the privacy of the cubicle. You could then give it a final rinse with water at the sink or simply put it back in your storage pouch safe in the knowledge that the Sanipolymers are doing their thing and sanitising your applicator for you.

HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY REUSABLE APPLICATOR?

We've designed the reusable tampon applicator to be hygienic. It's made from medical grade Mediprene® with inbuilt antimicrobial properties to actively keep it clean. This means caring for your applicator is easy. After each use, simply rinse your reusable tampon applicator under the tap and wipe with a tissue or towel, ensuring it's completely dry. In between uses, keep the lid on and store in your DAME cotton zip wallet (available with reusable applicator set).

Alternatively, it is absolutely fine to use toilet paper to wipe down the applicator if you do not have access to running water. Store the applicator in your cotton wallet and rinse the applicator as soon as you get home, ready for its next use!

There's no need for dishwashers, boiling water or harsh treatment. These will just shorten the applicator's lifetime and compromise its antimicrobial properties. Got more questions about looking after your DAME reusable tampon applicator? Get in touch.

WHAT'S THE DAME REUSABLE APPLICATOR MADE OF?

Our applicator is built in the UK by medical engineers using the highest quality, medical grade Mediprene® and medical grade polypropylene. It is BPA free.

DAME reusable tampon applicator contains inbuilt Sanipolymers® - these have natural antimicrobial characteristics to keep it hygienic.

To get technical for a moment, DAME reusable tampon applicator is not a medical device in the EU, but we wanted it to be totally safe, so we designed it to medical standards anyway. It passed the following tests with flying colours:

Cytotoxicity tests according to ISO 10993-5
Biocompatibility tests according to ISO 10993-10
ISO 10993-11
USP Class VI
ISO 22196
JIS Z 2801

WHAT DO I DO WITH THE LID OF MY REUSABLE APPLICATOR?

Your applicator is made up of three parts: The Lid + The Applicator + The Plunger

Ensuring your hands are clean, remove the applicator lid, unwrap your tampon and unravel the string.

Leave the lid to one side or in your DAME cotton pouch - or if you have a knack for one-handed application, you can hold on to it.

Once your tampon is loaded, insert the applicator into your vagina at a 45 degree angle. Then use the plunger to push the tampon into your vagina. Stop pushing just before the plunger clicks into the applicator - your tampon is now in place.

After inserting the tampon, remove the applicator. Simply rinse and wipe your reusable tampon applicator after each use and replace the lid.

You're good to go.
