I’m gonna bet that if you’re reading this blog, you’ve probably been in a position where you’ve had a blood stain in your knickers. You know how it is, you’re wearing your favourite pants and – BAM – your monthly miracle shows up completely out of the blue. You get a pang on sadness come over you as you realise your favourite undies are now bin fodder.


Well, not any more! Introducing one of my favourite period products, Save My Knickers. This wonder-product is a special stain removing powder design specifically for removing blood stains from your panties. Your stained underwear doesn’t have to end up in landfill any more.


Save My Knickers was designed by Lucy Self, an NHS worker with a mission to, quite literally,  save your knickers. Lucy was fed up with having her nice panties relegated to the back of her underwear drawer after her period showed up unexpectedly. So, she set out to find a solution.


Save My Knickers is a unique stain-removing powder which is different from others you might have already tried. Firstly, it really works! You can see the blood being lifted out of the fabric almost immediately.


Secondly, it was designed with periods in mind. The formula was created specifically for period blood. It’s no wonder it actually works!


I was lucky enough to be able to have a candid conversation with Lucy about how she created the product and why it’s important to her. You can listen to the full conversation here.

Save My Knickers is simple to use. The last thing you want to deal with on your period is wondering how the heck you’re gonna get the stains out of your knickers, then having to follow a complicated procedure to make it happen. This is one of the reasons I love Save My Knickers so much.


All you have to do is make the product into a grainy paste, apply it to the stained area, then soak the panties overnight in cold water. The next morning you just throw them in a regular wash et voila! Stains are gone.


It was so interesting to get to talk to Lucy about how she created this product. Lucy had almost no prior chemistry knowledge and created this product through trial and error in her home kitchen. If only her chemistry teacher could see her now!


What’s amazing to me is just how well this product works. I know how notoriously difficult it is to remove blood stains. I have tried and failed with regular stain removers before now.


I’ll be honest, when I first tried Save My Knickers I was sceptical about how well it would work. I didn’t understand how it was different from a “regular” stain remover. So, I expected the same kind of results I’d had in the past.


When I first tried it I was taken aback. Like, woah – this stuff actually works. Like, for real.

I’ve used this on knickers, bedsheets, jeans and joggers. It’s never let me down yet. Anytime I get an unexpected stain, I reach straight for this product.
