We tested regular and super pads as well as liners. Pads that are labelled as super, overnights or maternity have all been tested as super pads. Only products within each type are directly comparable to one another.
Each product is tested for its absorbency speed. A specific amount of saline solution is dosed into the centre of the sanitary pad using the dosage pump. The amount of time it takes for the liquid to disappear is recorded and the process is repeated once more after waiting for three minutes. The total time for both gushes to absorb is taken as the absorption speed.

We look for any leakages during testing and note if a leak was observed. This isn't scored.
