Everyone’s seen the pad commercials with the blue liquid test. Every company uses them but I’m pretty sure once the commercial’s over you don’t think about it much. When Stayfree offered the chance to do the test ourselves my curiosity won out.
They provided everything. A package of Stayfree pads, two competitor pads, vials of the famous blue liquid, blotting sheets and three five pound weights.
The test was easy enough. Put the pads on the placement sheet.
Add the blue liquid and wait 30 seconds.
Add the blotting paper with the weights over them.Wait 5 seconds and voila! Results!
I don’t know what the pad in the middle is and I kind of wish I did because that’s pretty gross in comparison. The Stayfree and Competitor #2 who is almost definitely Always were basically neck and neck for spots. The main difference was that Stayfree kept them in the middle and Competitor #2 had them a lot more spread out.
It was pretty cool playing scientist for the day and the results were pretty surprising. Stayfree is also trying to get rid of granny panties and bring back the cute ones. Their Panty Party website is running a contest and you can also follow them on Twitter. The cutest part of the whole thing is this little video.
Let us know if you’re on your way to retiring your granny panties and what you think of the results of our test!
