how to use


Works just like a normal applicator, but it's reusable! Remove the lid, load a tampon, insert the plunger and push through the soft petals. After use, rinse under running water (or wipe clean and rinse later).

Reusable applicator set

Works wonderfully. As I can only use applicators I love that I am now able to use any tampon I can get my hands on in desperate situations and also do my part to be eco friendly. I can finally stop buying those cursed disposable plastic applicators now.

Frequently asked

How big is the DAME applicator?

The insertable length of the DAME reusable tampon applicator is 46mm, but you only need to insert as much as you feel comfortable with to put in your tampon comfortably. The tip of the applicator is 18mm in diameter and increases slightly to 21mm at the widest part by the base.

It’s slightly bigger than a disposable applicator but this size means it works with all tampons from light - super plus. The soft and flexible material ensures the greatest level of ergonomic comfort during application.

What is the DAME reusable applicator made of?

DAME reusable applicator is made in the UK by medical engineers using the highest quality medical grade Mediprene® and polypropylene. It's BPA free and contains inbuilt Saniconcentrates™  which keep it ultra-hygienic and resistant to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.

To get technical for a moment, DAMEs reusable applicator isn't a medical device in the UK or EU, but DAME wanted it to be totally safe, so they designed it to medical standards anyway. It passed the following tests with flying colours:

  • Cytotoxicity tests according to ISO 10993-5
  • Biocompatibility tests according to ISO 10993-10
  • ISO 10993-11
  • USP Class VI
  • ISO 22196
  • JIS Z 2801
How do I use my DAME reusable tampon applicator?

Remember to always remove the lid before use.

DAME have designed the DAME reusable tampon applicator to be as easy to use as possible. Here are some tips to get you going:

  • Get to know your applicator. It's made up of three parts: the lid, the applicator and the plunger
  • To load your tampon, wash your hands then unwrap your tampon and unravel the string
  • Remove the lid, peel back one of the 'petals' and load the tampon from the top 
  • Once your tampon is loaded, insert the applicator into your vagina at a 45 degree angle, then use the plunger to push the tampon in until the plunger clicks into the applicator. Your tampon should now be comfortably in place
How do I wash my DAME reusable applicator in a public bathroom?

As DAMEs applicator does not need to be boiled to clean, simply rinse with cold water at the sink, dry thoroughly and pop back into your storage pouch.

DAME designed the DAME reusable tampon applicator to be sleek, stylish and easy to use in both private and public toilets but totally understand that you may not always want to wash your applicator in public. That's why you can also clean your applicator with loo roll in the privacy of the cubicle. You could then give it a final rinse with water at the sink or simply put it back in your storage pouch safe in the knowledge that the Saniconcentrates™ are doing their thing and sanitising your applicator for you.
