Sometimes, it’s a little rough being a woman. We recently calculated the amount of time the average woman spends having her period, and it’s more than a little upsetting.
Say you get your period when you’re 12 and menopause arrives at 52, that’s 40 whole years of periods. If you get about 13 periods a year, and they last five or six days each (which I not-so-fondly refer to as Shark Week), that’s about 70 days a year you spend bleeding.
If you multiply that by 40 years, it becomes 8 whole years of your life that you spend painfully dependent on (really expensive) pads, tampons, diva cups, hot water bottles and painkillers.
But we digress. If you spend roughly 70 days a year bleeding, there’s a very high chance you’re going to get blood on one of your clothing.
With that in mind, use these helpful tips the next time you’re in a situation where you’re caught in the red, and save your precious clothing from unsightly stains.
