What are Cloth Menstrual Pads?
Cloth menstrual pads are a fabric, reusable alternative to disposable menstrual pads. They are used in the same as disposable pads, except when you have used them, they are washed so they can be used again.
Why use Cloth Menstrual Pads?
With good care Cloth Menstrual Pads can last many years, saving you money and reducing the amount of waste being sent to landfill. Cloth pads are free of the bleaches and chemicals used to make disposables so no risk of irritation making them a much healthier and more comfortable option.
How do you look after the pads?
After you have used your pads you can rinse them in cold water and allow them to soak in cold water until you are ready to wash them. You don't have to soak them but doing so will help reduce the chance of staining. Your pads should be washed at 30 degrees without fabric conditioners. Using fabric conditioners can leave an oily residue on the fabrics and this reduces the absorbency of the pads. Always air dry your pads line drying in the sun is best to reduce stains or on an airer in the house is just fine
What do the little embroidered letters on the wing mean?
To help you identify the absorbency of your pads we have embroidered it on the wing for you.
P - Pantyliner
L - Light
R - Regular
H - Heavy
Which way up do you wear the pads?
This is a very important question, all our pads are worn with the fleece side down so you will bleed on the "pretty" side.
How many cloth pads do I need?
This differs for each person. You may use between 2 and 5 pads per day depending on your flow. 10 to 15 pads is a good place to start, you can use them alongside disposables until you have enough cloth pads to last you a full cycle.
How wide are the pads when they are snapped shut?
This table shows the snapped width measurements of all our pads.
Which cloth pads are suitable for teens?
Our pads are suitable for all ages however, for teens and petite people, we recommend starting with the Lite and Lithe style. These styles have a narrow gusset width which can be more favourable for teens.
Do you have free samples for review?
I seem to get asked this question on a daily basis. I am very happy for any of my customers to write reviews of my pads but I do not give out free pads.
Do you ship outside the UK?
Yes we ship to most countries except the USA and Canada.
