Title
(EN) Strain resistant strips article and method
Abstract
(EN)

A stain protection article and method are disclosed for providing protection against side leakage around a feminine care absorbent article. A pair of stain resistant strips have a stain protection sheet member aligned along a comfort cuff member shaped to accommodate the inside leg of a user. A garment-attachment adhesive on the stain resistant strips attaches to a crotch portion of an undergarment. The stain protection comfort cuff members are composed of an elastic barrier adhesive (EBA) material. The stain resistant strips article and method of the present invention further include providing a feminine care absorbent article completely separate from the pair of stain resistant strips and holding the feminine care absorbent article prior to use in a combination package formed from the first stain resistant strip and the second stain resistant strip. In one embodiment, the first stain resistant strip and the second stain resistant strip have arcuate shaped ends. In one aspect, the garment-attachment adhesive is positioned on a periphery of the pair of stain resistant strips.
