Only Use One Product at a Time

May 14, 2019

Double Stacking Doesn't Work

Sometimes people think that using more than one absorbent product at a time will help the products work better. But the truth is that products are not designed to be stacked on top of each other and doing so may cause more leakage and possible skin irritation.

  • Absorbent products feature a waterproof layer to ensure liquid doesn’t leak out.
  • Only the product closest to the skin is working.
  • If you use two or more products at the same time, the product on the top is the only one that will work.
  • The bottom product will not absorb anything because its being covered by the top product.
  • If the top product can’t absorb everything, liquid will leak from the product.

Negative Effects of Stacking

  • Product leaks because products are not designed to be stacked.
  • Increased risk of infection because of bad cleaning habits.
  • Moisture build-up can lead to skin irritation.

There is only one product that you should put inside another incontinence product: a booster pad. Booster pads, also known as "doublers" or "inserts", are designed to be worn inside another absorbent undergarment to increase the absorbency. They do not have a waterproof backing so urine will flow through the booster pad and into the diaper underneath. Multiple, stacked booster pads may be used to increase absorbency.
