Congratulations on choosing cloth menstrual pads and making your time of the month as enjoyable as possible!

Cloth pads are more comfortable, more breathable, more absorbent, more cost-efficient, and more eco-friendly than disposable pads. And they’re so easy to take care of!

Many women report shorter, less crampy cycles with cloth due to the lack dioxins that
irritate the uterus present in disposables.

....So your pocketbook, your planet, and your body will thank you!

Snaps: Heavy duty polyresin plastic snaps applied with hand snap pliers

Wash Instructions:
Wash cold dry low

Each pad has a topstitched channel to direct and wick flow to the most absorbent parts of the pad, and they’re designed and sewn with care to ensure they last you many cycles!

All pads are a labor of love by a Midwestern mother of two from a smoke-free, dog-friendly household.

Frequently asked questions about CrimsonWaveClothShop

I am partial to 100% cotton prints for all pad tops; bamboo flannel and fleece for cores and the backs of liner; Zorb cores and PUL underneath for medium and heavy flow pads; and moisture-resistant fleece for the backs of medium and heavy flow pads. In other words, a fabric sandwich of awesome.
Have a heavy, messy flow? Make sure you're packing a longer, thicker pad. Need something small and trim to use as daily protection or with a menstrual cup? Grab a few panty liners. It's pretty intuitive, so don't sweat the dimensions. Otherwise, an 8" length is pretty "standard."
It's your personal preference. Some women like to wash the pads they've used at the end of each day, and others like to wash in one big load at the end of their cycle. Either way works. Just note that if you're feeling lazy (totally okay) and only want to wash once, you're gonna need more pads.
No special detergents or complicated wash process necessary. Just toss these puppies in like a normal load. (*Note: ' Toss these puppies' is an expression. Please do not put puppies in the wash.)

However, I do recommend that you not use fabric detergent or dryer sheets. Softeners can leave residue on your pads that diminishes the absorbency of your pads.

Wringing and rinsing pads in cold water before washing helps with staining and a more thorough clean. Washing in hot water on occasion is okay, but can fade the colors of your print.

If it's convenient for you, consider line drying. I use the highest quality snaps, but I've found that the high heat of the dryer can warp the plastic snaps and make them difficult to use.
You bleed down there sometimes. I can't help you with that. However, I can help you make it a more fun experience.

Just make sure to store your dirty pads somewhere and wash them, and they'll be perfectly sanitary to use next time.
