Here are answers to some common FAQs about Zorbies incontinence underwear. If you don't find the answer to your question here, contact us via our contact page and we'll get right back to you.
Are Zorbies really made from fabric, not papery material?
Yes. Both ZorbWear and PocketWear look like regular underwear and are made from premium materials fabricated for use in technical and high performance clothing. While we need fabrics with high tech properties to handle moisture, we didn't forget about comfort. These fabrics are soft, comfortable and feel great on your skin.
Can I wear Zorbies all day, or do I have to change?
Whatever incontinence underwear you use, the best way to avoid skin irritation and protect your clothing is to change as often a necessary to feel dry and comfortable. Simply put, if your underwear starts to feel damp, heavy or wet (especially the leg seams), change. Or, if a heavy leak comes all at once it's healthiest and safest to head for a change. So, always carry the changes you need to stay ahead of the situation.
Can I wear ZorbWear all night?
Our current ZorbWear line is designed for daily wear. You should only wear Zorbies overnight if total overnight accumulation is light enough so there is not enough fluid to leak to the back or sides of the garment (outside of the ZorbLock Protection panel) when you are lying on your back or sides.
If you are unsure of your overnight leak volume, do not wear Zorbies; wear a product that’s specifically designed to give overnight-protection. Overnight wear products have an expanded coverage area to handle moisture, and how it moves, in a lying down position so these are designed to handle leaks that might spread to your back or sides.
Are Zorbies really washable and reusable like regular underwear?Yes. All of our product lines ZorbWear, PocketWear, SportsWear, are machine washable. Just follow these care instructions to preserve the fabrics and get the best performance out of Zorbies. With proper care you can expect Zorbies to last about the same amount of time as a premium pair of regular underwear.
- Wash before first use
- Pre-wash separately in cold water (detergent not required) before mixing with other items. Hand rinse, or if your machine has a pre-rinse/pre-wash cycle you can use that
- For best results pre-wash or rinse used garments as soon a you can after taking them off. Once they are rinsed store them so they can get some air while waiting for laundry day, then do a weekly batch load
- Always use mild or gentle laundry detergent
- Machine wash warm, on the delicate cycle
- Do not use fabric softeners or any type of bleach
- Tumble dry on medium heat for 2+ cycles
- Do not iron
