What is it? Cloth pads are just like disposables, except you wash and reuse them, therefore saving money and creating less waste. Why would anyone want to wash and reuse a menstrual pad? Women have been doing it for thousands of years before you. Which doesn?? mean it is old fashioned or even outdated. In fact it is all the opposite, absolutely up-to-date: eco-friendly, health beneficial and cost convenient. You quickly incorporate the routine of changing, soaking, washing, drying and reusing. Many users have reported benefits of feeling emotionally more connected to themselves and their cycle. How do I wear my pad? The plain uni-coloured fabric is worn facing your body and the patterned leakproof side faces your underwear. The buttons are fastened around your underwear. How do I wash it? Cloth pads can be washed easily by hand or in the washing machine. The secret is f irst soaking the pads in cold water for 30 minutes before washing in up to a maximum of 40 degrees Celsius. Most of the blood comes out in the soaking process. After that, it?? just like washing your clothes. How do I dry it? Dry on the washing line in full sunlight for best results or tumble dry on low heat. Are they comfortable? Does it stain? The secret is first soaking the pads in cold water for 30 minutes before washing. This ensures the pads to remain stain free. This is so, because blood contains protein, which rinses easily in cold water, while warm water coagulates protein, making it set in the fabric. How do you know the pad is completely clean? When wet, squeeze the water out of your pad. If the water is transparent, it means that the inner layers of your pad are blood free! How often should I change my pad? You should change your pad about as often as you would change a disposable pad, every 4 to 6 hours, as needed, depending on your flow. You will easily learn when it?? time to change. This is a personal matter and the answer would depend on the user, but we have very good feedback regarding the comfort of our pads. Less feeling of wetness, the comfort of cotton against your skin and between your thighs rather than plastic, less skin irritation, less smell and our customers love their softness! Do they feel wet? The blood doesn?? stay on the top flannel. The liquid gets absorbed into the inner cotton layers. If your body expels a lot of clots during your period, you will find these on top of your pad. If your pad starts to feel wet it means it?? time to change it with a fresh one, just as with any other product. In fact many users report feeling less wetness and more comfort with cotton against their body as compared to sticky plastic pads.
