January 11, 2011

An absorbent article has received a patent. The article includes an absorbent core disposed between an inner coversheet and an outer coversheet. The article further includes at least one disposal fastener which is directly or indirectly joined to the outer coversheet. The disposal fastener includes a fastening element which allows the article to be secured in a configuration that provides a convenient disposal after the article has been used. The disposal fastener is covered by a material layer having a surface area such that it extends beyond the disposal fastener. The material layer is attached to or forms an integral part of the outer coversheet so as to keep the disposal fastener hidden when not in use. The material layer is releasable from the outer coversheet so as to expose the disposal fastener for use.
