Reload Aunt Flow Cartridge Pads in 6 Easy Steps

July 14, 2022

Aunt Flow is on a mission to change the world, one cycle at a time. That means providing menstruators access to Aunt Flow pads and tampons that are comfortable, high-quality products.

It also means assisting maintenance teams, custodial staff, and anyone responsible for keeping Aunt Flow’s Model P, Model E, and Model R dispensers locked, stocked, and ready to rock.

We’ve made our dispensers as user AND maintenance-friendly as possible. With quick reload capabilities and a front viewing window to see when product levels are running low, we want to make stocking Aunt Flow products as easy as P-E-R-I-O-D.

Check out how straightforward it is to reload Aunt Flow cartridge pads in our dispensers:

How to Load Aunt Flow Cartridge Pads

Step 1

Place cartridge envelope side up and logo towards the front

*Note: the direction the pad faces is VERY IMPORTANT. The dispenser may not consistently dispense if the pad is not loaded in the proper direction.

Step 2

Guide pad cartridge down

Step 3

Tear cartridge paper

Step 4

Remove cartridge paper, pulling downwards

Step 5

Repeat this process until the dispenser is fully loaded (10 cartridges for 50 total pads)

Step 6

Dispense cartridge pads!

Hi! I’m Claire. I founded Aunt Flow after getting my period in public without the supplies needed.

At 18 years old, I dedicated my life to developing a solution to ensure businesses and schools could sustainably provide quality period products, for free, in bathrooms. Our products are made with organic cotton and we are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact! Since 2021, we've donated over 6 MILLION period products to menstruators in need. I call this people helping people. PERIOD.®
