A woman recently went to use a Kotex brand tampon and fortunately was a little clumsy getting it out of the packaging and discovered patches of mold growing all over the product that was seconds away from being inserted inside her. She wrote to the manufacturer and was horrified to discover that this is fairly common and received nothing more than a cookie cutter apology and some coupons to buy more of their products.
I urge anyone who uses this brand or other brands of tampons to pay closer attention when using or to perhaps consider switching to a different type of reusable product such as a Diva Cup or washable cloth liners. This is absolutely repulsive and although I no longer have periods, I felt I should inform my followers about this for their own health and safety.

I recommend the Diva Cup, and this one of the many reasons why!  

Wow… This is so scary. I love my DivaCup- it is totally worth switching from tampons.

I used to use instead which was a smaller/disposable version of the DivaCup but now I can’t find them ANYWHERE. I am looking into getting a diva cup for myself. 

Okay, a) that’s horrifying, and b) Insteads recently underwent a redesign and name change (to Softcups) might have disappeared from your shelves, or the packaging may just be different than what you are used to. If you are in the US, they can be purchased at Drugstore.com
