A woman recently went to use a Kotex brand tampon and fortunately was a little clumsy getting it out of the packaging and discovered patches of mold growing all over the product that was seconds away from being inserted inside her. She wrote to the manufacturer and was horrified to discover that this is fairly common and received nothing more than a cookie cutter apology and some coupons to buy more of their products.
I urge anyone who uses this brand or other brands of tampons to pay closer attention when using or to perhaps consider switching to a different type of reusable product such as a Diva Cup or washable cloth liners. This is absolutely repulsive and although I no longer have periods, I felt I should inform my followers about this for their own health and safety.
This has shown up on my dash like six times now and I was just going to keep ignoring it but I can no longer ignore my own bizarre reaction to this knowledge.
I don’t know if I’m just apathetic or if the Internet has made me numb or if having kids made me more immune to grossness but I keep thinking “IDGAF TAMPONS ARE AWESOME”
