stay sanitary

When a bad guest leaves

Sometimes, as much as we try to be polite, we can’t help but be relieved to see people leave after an extended stay. Maybe they overstayed their welcome, or were more of a nuisance than you anticipated when you offered the invitation. But now they’re gone, and the cleansing and banishing can begin!

Cleanse your space

An annoying guess can leave your house in physical and emotional turmoil. Wash sheets and tidy up the space they stayed in for sanitary purposes, but also to banish the negative energy they brought with them. Once you’ve finished cleaning, take a broom and sweep all the negativity out the front door.

Cleanse yourself

Bad guests are stressful. Your guest may be gone, but the stress that’s piled up during their stay is still present. Calming bath helps physically relax while also soaking away any negativity that clung to you while you were cleaning. Finish the bath off with an exfoliating body scrub to wash the ick away, and lotion as a physical protective ward (and necessary hydration!).

Practice grounding

Having visitors can be limiting, and it’s likely some aspect of your daily routine has been interrupted during their stay. Now is the time to reclaim things and make your space feel like home again. Once your decor is as it should be and secret notebooks are out of hiding, light some incense or candles to help give the area an emotional reset. Hearty, filling meals (like things containing root vegetables) help provide emotional grounding.

Set up wards

This isn’t a necessary step, but it’s a good added precaution. When you get sick you become more susceptible to other infections, and the same can happen with spaces filled with negativity. Setting up a few wards can help to repel any other gunk that ends up being drawn your way. Because the issue is someone who brought negativity into your home, the best placement for wards would likely be your overall home or property, the room they stayed in, and where they slept. The type of ward varies by personal preference and the issues brought on by their presence.

How do I empty my menstrual cup in a shared bathroom?

Someone asked us:

Hi there! I have recently become interested in the Diva Cup, however I’m not quite sure about the emptying of it and if you rinse it out before putting it back in. The thing is, I’m in college with a communal sink and then the toilet is in a separate room with the shower. There is no way I can walk out of the bathroom and rinse my cup out in the sink when my roommates are there. Do you have any advice for this?

I know how you feel! I get cup anxiety, too — especially if I’m in a public place or with people who might not know exactly what a menstrual cup is. (For those who don’t know, a menstrual cup is a little silicone cup that you put in your vagina when you have your period. Some people use these instead of tampons or pads because they’re reusable, more eco-friendly, and save you money over time.) People can have all sorts of reactions to menstrual cups, and periods in general, but here at Planned Parenthood we know that talking about periods and the products we use to deal with them is a normal part of life.

Although menstrual cups seem to be the sensation that’s sweeping the Period Nation, not everyone knows what they are.  And yes, that might mean an awkward moment if you walk out of a stall holding a bloody cup.  One way to break down those barriers and feelings of insecurity might be talking with your roommates about menstrual cups.

Period blood happens. Let your roommates know that menstrual cups are one way to deal with it, and ask them to be cool. If they seem “meh,” tell them you’ll let them know if you’re coming out of the toilet to rinse your cup out in the sink. Then they can duck out of the room or just stay and deal.

If they don’t react maturely or if you’d still rather deal with it in private, you do have a few alternatives:

  1. Rinse and reinsert your cup while you’re in the shower.
  2. Carry a water bottle with you into the toilet and use that to rinse out your cup before reinserting.
  3. Dump the cup contents into the toilet and clean out what remains with a wipe or tissue.

Be sure to follow all of the directions that come with your cup to make sure everything stays sanitary. Many brands recommend that you wash your hands, remove the cup, discard the contents, then rinse it with warm water and soap about twice a day while you’re using it. Cleaning your cup more thoroughly between periods — by boiling it in a pot with water for 5-10 minutes — is also a good idea.

If you try the cup and it’s not for you, don’t worry! They’re not for everyone. Tampons and pads are still there to help you keep your period blood at bay.

the actual truth behind japanese/korean girl school uniforms

trust me, reality is light years away from those busty 16 yos you see on anime

  • IT’S NOT FUCKING FLEXIBLE SO WHENEVER YOU LIFT YOUR ARMS HALF OF YOUR STOMACH AND BACK IS EXPOSED AND LIKE IN THE LEAST EROTIC WAY POSSIBLE
  • who the fuck came up with the idea of making school uniforms that can’t absorb armpit sweat?? asians apparently
  • try wearing the same skirt 7+ hours a day for five days. you can imagine how wrinkly it gets
  • we have to change to our gym clothes for P.E. IN THE CLASSROOM THERE ARE NO CHANGING ROOMS IN MOST SCHOOLS so it’s either a) boys change their pants behind a army of desks(I have seen boys in boxers/shirtless more than I would like to) and girls change in the corner or b) some kind of gender has to change in the bathroom. have you ever tried changing in the school bathroom? every single shard of your dignity is suddenly washed away
  • and why the fuck are they so expensive?? a full set of a blouse+vest+skirt+jacket is like 150 dollars
  • oh you wanna stay sanitary and wash your uniforms every three days? good luck in staying damp clothes all day

I stim with my purple flowery phone case! I take it off and I bend it and feel the flower texture on the back. I also chew on it so I end up washing it a lot, but hey gotta stay sanitary!

Supernatural (narry)

Summary: Slightly based off of the show Supernatural. Harry is a ruthless hunter and Niall is his next target.

Harry was crouched low behind a tree, his silver knife glinting in the moon light. He had been tracking this vampire for almost two weeks, following the path of mysterious deaths and missing persons, and it was going to end tonight. Holding his breath, Harry peeked out from behind the tree, catching a glimpse of the vampire. It was crouched over his dead victim, sucking blood from their limp wrist.
