    So I wouldn’t necessarily say that I’m excited for my period. But I’m so excited to use these pads! This is by far the best shop to order reusable menstrual products from, I’ve recommended it to everyone I know. I love the variety and how cute they are! The shipping was super fast and I love the little note with directions that was included. Absolutely love what I ordered and this shop in general! <3

    Very happy with my order. I have yet to use them but I can't imagine them not performing well. I am also happy to support causes such as this one!

    Got these in both large and medium, and I’m so glad I did! Super soft and the patterns are cute too. The shipping was really fast as well. This is my favorite shop for anything related to my period. I’ve made multiple purchases and been so happy every time.

    This bag is the best I’ve found so far! Good size and I love that it has a zipper. I’ve bought multiple items from this shop and I’m happy every time. The shipping was fast too. This will continue to be my go to shop for all things related to my period, I love it so much.

    A lot of variety, cute designs, good to try out different options
    Some stitching is off/unevenly cut on a couple of the cloth pads. Not bad and won't hinder the use, but as a gift for a young person new to all of the products I would have preferred the cloth ones were more carefully made. Some of the fabrics don't seem very absorbent, but they haven't been tried yet.

    Overall, a ton of variety came in the box. My young person feels very prepared when the time comes.!

    Absolutely love these prints, they are well made, the patterns are so cute. They seem to be very lightweight even at a Super hold. I haven’t used them yet but know they’re my new best friends instead of just waste waste waste. Thank you for introducing me to options as I didn’t even know I had any before. I’m so excited after receiving these I can’t wait to order more!

Saving the world one cloth pad at a time.

I am Teysha Wheeler-LeManski, the CEO of Cloth Connection Outreach Charity (registered 501c3). We are always trying to think of more ways to help people and their period poverty struggles.

I designed the P.A.D.S. pattern to help raise funds for our free program but to also have a pad that is better for you and the environment. Requiring less water and quicker drying time means money saved and water and electricity saved.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Wash all items on cold with detergent to wash away any residue from sewing. Dry on low heat.

Rinse in cold water after using or fold up and dry store in bag until wash day. Cold wash with detergent (and water softener if you have hard water) then long hot wash with detergent. treat stains with peroxide or stain remover and rewash it. Laying it damp in the sun helps remove shadow stains too. Dry on low heat or lay flat to dry.

Slipping Pads

If you pads slip around, try tighter fitting underwear, or wearing bike shorts over top of you underwear.

Snapping the pad tighter may help if there's another snap.

If it's a PUL backed pad, Puffy Paint helps. Just a few dots or strips on the back help give it grip.
