Are You Traveling Without A Spare?

I remember when I still used disposable products I always had a tampon in my purse.
Especially when you don't use hormone based birth control it's often hard to predict the specific day your period will start.
After switching to cloth a few years ago I stopped carrying that spare tampon.
I am not sure why. I do remember being caught without protection somewhere away from home. Annoying! Uncomfortable! Embarrassing :(
And so after several years of this I had the brilliant idea to carry spares again!
I have an extra cup in the glove compartment in my car* and I carry an extra pad in a pad envelop in my purse. So nice to know that wherever I go, I have what I need. :)

For pad envelops and other storage solutions, please see our store:

To find the perfect color for your spare cup see here:

*in regards to concerns about exposing the Lunette and other silicone cups to extreme temperatures I got the following response from Lunette:
our Lunette is made of the highest possible medical-grade silicone that can handle extreme temperatures. It has to, because it comes from Finland. And our winters are freezing!
It can also handle hot temperatures just fine. So you can store your Lunette in your car, don´t worry.

smart thinking! it would great to have a spare, or a pad or two at least, in the glove box or the diaper bag!!

My only worry would be the temperature changes inside a car - possibly detrimental to the integrity of a cup's materials. But keeping a spare pad inside the car is a good idea :)

A, the cups are made from silicone which generally is a fantastic material to use when extreme temperatures are of concern (think of those silicone potholders -they are rated up to 465 degrees!)
I put in an inquiry with Lunette to confirm this and will report back :)
