Here at Shreddies we are passionate about healthcare and work closely with the medical community to ensure quality products are available for all. There are a number of benefits to washable incontinence products, primarily they are more economical over time, being up to 50% cheaper than their disposable alternatives. In addition to this they are far more environmentally friendly as most disposable pads cannot be recycled. They can also be easier to store as well as looking and feeling similar to normal underwear allowing the

wearer to be more discreet. However, we do recommend purchasing several pairs to ensure you have enough at any one time. Urinary incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine and is a very common problem that is thought to affect about three million people in the UK. Anyone can experience urinary incontinence, although it is more common in older people. The condition affects far more women than men, with one in one in five women who are over 40 years of age experiencing the problem.
