Popular actress, Halima Abubakar has given tips to women on the best way to dispose their used sanitary pads.
Abubakar said every woman should make sure they wash out all the blood on their used pads before disposal or throw it into a pit.
She argued it may seem dirty a thing to do but it’s capable of saving lives considering the surge in ritual activities in recent times.
“Start washing out your blood from your pads. Sounds dirty but saves lives. Or if you have a pit, good for you. Take care of your blood,” she said.
Social media users have taken to the comment section to express wavering views on Abubakar’s pad disposal update.
