You can find a comparison of these products in the link below:
Menstrual cups and tampons have a higher capacity to collect menstrual fluid and because these products catch the flow right inside the vagina, it reduces the chances of blood getting on to your clothes. You can even use either of these in combination with a pad as a backup.
You can also use a calendar to keep a track of your menstrual cycles so that you can predict your next period and stay prepared for it by wearing protection a day or two before you expect your periods to start.
That should be enough to guarantee a spot free period :)
If its at night, try sleeping on your side, and use two pads if necessary. Don't use tampons for the whole night. Not healthy.

Hey,I had the same issue of staining.Thanks to my friends,they told me about the existence of period panties.Initially i didn't like the idea,since usually these period panties are not cotton,or non-breathable material. Then i got to know about adira period panties,they are pure cotton.I have never been stained during its usage. I got mine online.You should give it a try.
