July 10, 2007

A method of utilizing a tampon disposal system has been patented. The method comprises a housing with a first end and a second end. The housing includes a first edge within the first end and a first perforation for allowing selective removal of the first edge to expose a first opening within the first end. The housing includes a second edge within the second end and a second perforation for allowing selective removal of the second edge to expose a second opening within the second end, the method comprising the steps of: removing the first edge from the housing; removing the second edge from the housing; expanding the housing into a hollow shape; passing a tampon string through the first opening and then through the second opening; pulling upon the tampon string thereby drawing a tampon into an inner cavity of the housing; and disposing of the housing with the tampon positioned within.
