The concept of panty liners is not exactly new but even today, not many people are acquainted with the concept. It is time for women to start getting acquainted with panty liners as well as many other interesting feminine hygiene products that are designed to make their lives a little easier. As of today, lets learn everything about using panty liners. What Are Panty liners?Panty liners are feminine hygiene products that help people with female genitalia feel fresh and comfortable all day long. These are comfortable, thin, with highly absorbent strips that can be attached to the underwear just like a sanitary napkin. They are not exactly like sanitary napkins although the material does absorb vaginal discharge.So, what are panty liners for? They are used to prevent discolouration of the underwear and also to soak up discharge to prevent rashes to the sensitive areas. Panty liners versus sanitary padsPanty liners absorb vaginal discharge but they are not sanitary napkins. Even the thinnest sanitary napkin will be thicker than a panty liner because the volume of menstrual blood is much higher than that of the average vaginal discharge during non-menstruating days. So again, what are panty liners used for? One could just use sanitary napkins instead of venturing out into a new range of products, right? Of course, it is an option. But it is a less comfortable and much more expensive option. Panty liners are thinner, cheaper and much more comfortable. They are designed differently for different kinds of vaginal discharge. Advantages of panty linersPanty liners are becoming more popular every year as people are becoming more aware of their benefits. If you are still thinking that sanitary napkins are a good alternative for panty liners, you will be surprised to find out that it is not true. In fact, in the last couple of days of your period, when your flow is negligible, panty liners can be used instead of a sanitary napkin.Here are some panty liner uses that might intrigue you: Light menstruation flowIf you have a light menstrual flow during the beginning or towards the end of your periods, you can use panty liners instead of wasting sanitary napkins. Using panty liners in combination with menstrual cups or tamponsIf you prefer tampons or menstrual cups but need some assistance preventing leaks, you can use them with a panty liner. In this case, the period blood that flows over to the panty liner will be like light menstrual flow. You will be more comfortable wearing something much thinner and seamless than a sanitary napkin when you are already wearing a tampon or a cup. For irregular menstruation flowMany people who menstruate have issues with irregular menstruation. Some of them have no way to predict when the next period will start. This is when panty liners come in handy. One can wear a panty liner every day and when the menstruation starts, they can switch to a sanitary napkin or tampon.Underwear protectionVaginal discharge has a pH high enough to bleach fabric commonly used to make underwear. The lighter colour on used underwear is not vaginal discharge sticking to the material or discolouration from menstrual blood. It is a bleaching effect from the daily vaginal discharge. Panty liners prevent this discolouration and increase the shelf life of your underwear by years.

Many people end up leaking a little by sneezing or laughing too hard. Panty liners help in such situations.To avoid a cameltoePlacing a panty liner horizontally on the crotch of the underwear will smoothen out the panty line and prevent a cameltoe.
