Benefits of Fabric Types
- Cotton & Jersey - This topping in commonly seen on our handmade pads. It is a very breathable fabric and if you have sensitive skin then this natural fabric will be a great choice. It can be slow at absorbing so if you have a particularly heavy or gushy flow then you may prefer a different topping.
- Plush - his is synthetic fabric and one of the quickest absorbing toppings available.
How many pads do I need?
As a general guide for a:
- short and light cycle 6 daytime and 3 night time
- Average length and flow 10 day pads and 4-5 night pads
- Longer and heavier cycles 15 day pads and 6-7 night time pads.
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.
Does the job but not my favourite
23 April 2021
Pros: Absorbent enough for everyday light use, discreet and donít move about. Pretty designs.
Cons: A bit on the narrow side and I also prefer a slightly longer pad.
An ok pantyliner but not one I would reach for over others.

This is the pad I can wear everyday between periods without fear of it moving around and it's completely inconspicuous. Love it

Product seems bulky and a bit narrow. Not an item I would use again after trying it once
