How many of you ladies have pantiliners in your home? Well, as an extreme couponer, I have all sorts of feminine products in an abundance. For a matter of fact, I have two whole shelves in my stockpile dedicated to feminine hygiene products. You may even find me with a buggy full of them on any given week if an amazing deal comes along that I can pair with a coupon or a rebate. I mean, they don’t expire, I am a mother of 3 girls and a woman myself.
Now of course we know what pantiliners are used for, they are great as an extra barrier during your period should your tampon or period cup leak. They are also amazing for the few days leading up to your expected period so you don’t ruin that favourite pair of pants. Keeping fresh and clean is also a perk to using pantiliners when not on your period as they help absorb any sweat from this summer heat!
Do you know that pantiliners have a gazillion other uses? These thin, little wonders of the world are amazing and their many uses is one of the other reasons I have an abundance of them in my stockpile!

5 ESSENTIAL PANTY LINER LIFE HACKS
So, I have a million ways to use pantiliners other that their intended use, but we would be here all day so I am just going to share my top 5 essential life hacks. Then you can enter to win a prize pack by sharing your panty liner hack down below!
1. NAIL POLISH REMOVER: Did you know that you can throw away those annoying cotton balls that fall apart and barely take the polish off one nail while dripping fluid down your hand? Yup you sure can because pantiliners make the BEST nail polish removing pads! One panty liner can literally do both hands and feet. Think of all the money you can save using pantiliners vs cotton balls or round pads!
2. FACIAL CLEANSING: Those facial cleansing pads can get expensive and they are small which if removing a face full of makeup means using more than one. Try using a pantyliner and your favourite makeup remover to get the job done.
3. FRESH & COMFORTABLE SHOES: Place a pantyliner in your shoes to give you extra comfort. Wearing heels or flats? Know how stinky those can get because of bare feet? Stick a pantyliner in them to have clean, dry and fresh shoes thanks to its awesome absorbent powers. Lastly you can cut and place parts of the pantyliner in places in your shoes that cause blisters. I like to put some on either side and the back area of my heels.
4. TECH CLEANING: I like to use a pantyliner and a few spritz of WHOOSH! Tech Hygiene to clean my computer, iPad and iPhone screens. It it gentle on the screens and doesn’t scratch them but gets the job done leaving it streak free!
5. SWEAT BLOCKER: I tend to sweat a lot, more now than before I had my children and it can be embarrassing to have wet marks under my arms when at an event or even on one of my TV appearances. As much as I look comfortable on TV I tend to get super nervous which makes me sweat even more than I usually do so how to combat this? I place a pantyliner in the armpit areas on my shirts to keep that sweat at bay!
