Cheeky Mama Luxury Panty Liners Overview
Cheeky Mama Luxury Cotton Panty Liners are for your lighter days or mild incontinence. The pads are made of natural cotton so tend to be cooler and thinner than manmade fabrics. The cotton material also helps the pad to stay in place better than some silkier fabrics. Cheeky Mama Luxury Cotton Panty Liners have a print on one side and plain on the other. The pads are positioned in your pants with the print side facing down, this is also the side with the Cheeky Mama label.
The Cheeky Mama luxury cotton pads secure in place by a popper which secures under your underwear gusset. There is only one popper position so you can't alter the width but this doesn't tend to be an issue unless you have very trim underwear.
Each pad is approx 22cm x 6cm
- Leakproof printed cotton outer layer (laminated)
- One absorbent cotton layer
- Inner layer cotton
The layers in the pad work together allowing moisture to be drawn down into the pad to leave you feeling fresher for longer without the need for any nasty chemicals. Cheeky Mama Luxury cotton pads do not contain anyfluorescence, bleaching, formaldehyde, dioxins or any harmful chemicals that cause rash, irritation and itching.
- Cold soak after use
- Machine wash cold under 30deg. You can put the pads in with normal washing.
- Hang to dry. Reshape while damp.

How many pads do I need?
As a general guide for a:

How To Wash Cloth Pads
Washing reusable cloth pads in the washing machine is the most effective way to care for your pads
Here is a basic guide to wash pads:
- When you remove your used pads rinse them thoroughly with cold water till the water runs clear. You can gently rub them to help remove as much blood as possible.
- Either pop them in your normal washing with other clothes or store them in a wet bag until wash day.
- Wash on a cold wash at either 30 or 40deg. You can use your normal detergent but avoid fabric softener.
Most companies will advise you to avoid harsh chemicals, fabric conditioner and tumble drying, as eventually it will lead to a shorter life span and issues with performance.
How To Dry Reusable Sanitary Pads
Ideally air dry your cloth sanitary pads and avoid using a tumble dryer. This helps to keep your reusable pads in better condition and is more environmentally friendly. A “sock” airer is ideal for drying them and can be hung inside in winter for quick drying. Most pads will easily dry overnight. Some pads can be tumble-dried, but this should be done on low and is best avoided as tumble drying can shrink some fabrics and remove fibres (that’s what the fluff is in the filter.)
How long will my pads last until I need to buy more to replace them?
As a general rule our suppliers expect their pads to last 5-10 years with average wear.

A really nice sized pad for me in both width and length. Discreet yet absorbent enough for everyday/light use and I donít find they slide about in my underwear like some other pads. Also pretty designs and good value for money.

These feel great, quick drying cotton pads, easy to use and stylish. The lining is slightly easier to stain, despite cold water rinsing compared to other pads, but these are really thin and barely noticeable for comfort as well.

This is great for those days when you don't need much absorbency but they are still rather large and you know you are wearing them. I'm only a petite 5'3" and I really wish there were a few more options for small, narrow, daily wear under skinny jeans and leggings.
