  • When you place an extra pad inside your adult diapers, the waste matter will stay trapped on the adult diaper’s plastic backing and will not reach the adult diapers.

  • The waste matter left inside the extra pad will be pushed out through the leg cuffs, thus causing leaks and damage to the skin!
