I’ve noticed discoloration on my Conni Bed Pad/Undergarment, can I use bleach?
Please do not use chlorine based bleach or fabric softeners on any of your Conni products. These chemicals will coat and fill the hi-tech fibres and make your Conni product lose function. We find oxygen based bleach (such as Napisan), or vinegar works great for freshening up the Conni range.
How long will my Conni product last?
There are many variables depending on usage so it is hard to say exactly how long your Conni product will last. In general, Conni Bed and Chair Pads should last up to 350 washes if washed in a domestic washing machine and ensuring the care instructions are followed. Undergarments typically last as long as a normal pair (6 months to a year), which is dependent on the wash and care of the garments.
Do I need to use extra protection with my Conni undergarment?
No, all Conni Undergarments they are waterproof and absorbent on their own, however, the adult liners are a great option for those who need a little extra protection during the day or night to stay dry.
How much will my Conni undergarment hold?
The Conni Undergarment range is designed for those with Light Bladder Leakage (LBL). This is often called stress incontinence and this can happen when you laugh, cough, sneeze or exercise. It is not suitable either for a full or even part bladder leaks should it happens all at once. The undergarment can hold almost a cup, but it has to be OVER an estimated 4 hours timeframe; not all at once. As everyone is different and many will have different interpretations of what LBL is, please speak with your healthcare professional to discuss if this kind of underwear is right for you.
The Conni undergarments are so thin, what are they made from?
Because of the technology we use, we are able to make our undergarments very slim and lightweight. They are made to look and feel like regular underwear. The outer layer is a cotton and elastane. There is a soft microfibre liner, an absorbent polyester interior and a supple polyurethane laminate waterproof layer which is not only breathable but will remain cool and comfortable.
My child is going to school next year and sometimes wets during the day. Can the Conni Kids undergarments be used as an altervative to disposables?
While we would not recommend the CONNI Kids undergarments as a replacement to nappies, our Kids range is a great choice if your child has Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) or when your child is toilet training. We all know accidents happen, and our tackers are perfect for someone not getting to the toilet in time, waking up too late, or not emptying their bladder completely.
Is the absorbency only in the crotch of the Conni undergarment?
All Conni undergarments, apart from the Ladies Active, have an absorbent and waterproof lining from the front of the waist, all the way up to the back.
