When to Dispose: Each piece of InterDry may be used up to 5 days, depending on fabric soiling, odor, amount of moisture and general skin condition.
Removal: Remove the fabric before bathing and reuse when finished. When removing the fabric from skin folds, gently separate the skin fold and lift away fabric.
1. Creams or ointments may reduce InterDry’s moisture-wicking ability.
2. Leave at least two inches of fabric beyond the skin fold.
3. Average treatment time is five days.1
