So this is kind of unrelated, but not totally....

I bought some unbleached pads from a natural grocery store (they sell organic foods and such) and they didn't work very well.  The sticky on them was barely effective and therefore they moved, causing obvious problems.  Hopefully, the other brand they had was better.

Gah! Yikes! not a great product it sounds like! I would take them back or even shoot the company a little comment card (e-mail or snail mail!).

what if you froze them in a litle baggie wouldnt that kill all the germs becuse if you do that to sneakers it kills the oder causeing germs in them and they wont stink would that work with sanatizing them?

Ooo, I like your thinking!!! I am not a scientist myself, so I am not sure how that would work... I mean, there are lots of things you can freeze that will come back to life after they are unfrozen (I can only think of what infertile couples do sometimes...) I don't know... It would be a good question for a biologist.... hello? any bio majors out there???

Hmm...I can't give any credible scientific info, but I doubt freezing alone in a household freezer would be enough...Maybe you could freeze things after doing heat sanitation to help keep them sanitized, but as javastain said, let's ask a biologist.

Hydrogen peroxide wont sterilize anything. At the most, it will disinfect. Theres a big difference.

(Thanks, beauty school test on infection control! We hairdressers are almost doctors, you know.)

Disinfection will kill some, but not all bacteria. NOT counting viruses or spores.

Sterilization is the act of eliminating everyyyyyyything. Viruses and spores dont stand a chance.

I read this on Wikipedia under "sterilization" and found this:

Cooking food until the CORE TEMPERATURE is 75C or above will ensure that harmful bacteria are destroyed.

I'm sure that this is applicable to most things.

All in all, I think we're all pretty aware that our tampons aren't sterile in the first place. Our gineys are made to withstand a lot, so I'm sure that all but the toughtest of germs will not make it rot from the inside out.

Freezing will not be enough to sanitize the tampons. Bacteria such as Staph aureus (whose toxin causes TSS) will not grow in freezing temperatures, but will not die either, and once thawed they can start mulitplying again. Most important of all, the toxin produced by Staph aureus is very resistant to freezing, so it won't be affected by it.
