Why Choose Cloth Pads:
→ Body Friendly: Cloth pads are comfortable and more breathable than disposables. They do not carry the same risk of drying you out or causing TSS like tampons. They are also free of harmful chemicals and fragrances that can cause irritation.
→ Earth Friendly: The average American woman will use 16,000 disposable menstrual products in her lifetime. This produces tons of waste, from the product itself to the wrappers, applicators, and packaging they come in – much of which is plastic that will take 500+ years to degrade. Replacing these products with washable, reusable products you are making an ecofriendly choice.
→ Budget Friendly: The longevity of cloth pads adds up! Your initial investment in your cloth pads will eliminate the monthly cost of running to the store to purchase disposables.
We also have moderate absorbency and heavy absorbency cloth pads in the shop!

These pads are nicely absorbent. I use these as a back up for the cup but find it absorbs well and doesn’t give you that horrid wet feeling. Stays pretty dry to touch. Good enough to use without cup too but check which pads offer the absorbency you need. And you might want to get two packs, I seem to get away with 1 pad a day most times. To clean, I put the used pad on the shower floor and let it rinse as I shower, squeeze it out a few times (rinsing and filling with water each time), rub a bit of bar soap on pad (seems to work better than liquid for this), scrub it together using each half of the pad, rinse again, wring it out and lay it on the side of the hamper to dry until laundry day. Then I set it out flat to dry after being out through the washer. Sounds like many steps but it really doesn’t take but a couple minutes.
