New to reusable cloth menstrual pads? Give them a chance and join the ranks of happy cloth users. They are super soft and comfortable - no more chafing from disposables. Secure, highly leak resistant, chlorine free, environmentally friendly and frugal, what's not to love about them? Oh, and I bet you would be surprised how easy it is to keep them stain free and fresh.

I have quite a few customers that suffer from Vulvodynia and have found that cloth pads have brought them relief. To learn more about this disorder, visit http://www.nva.org/All of my items are handcrafted with the utmost attention to detail using a mix of modern construction techniques and heirloom french finishing techniques. I finish all of my seams - enclosed seams on pads, serged seams on knits, and french or lapped seams on all other apparel fabrics.

The materials used in my pads are carefully chosen to be practical, durable and as natural and eco friendly as possible.

Muffies care and washing:

To keep them stain free and fresh: just rinse in cold water after use, fold and snap, and then run through the washing machine at your leisure (before they dry out is best). A bit of white vinegar added to your wash load is an amazingly effective, inexpensive, all natural deodorizer that eradicates odors and mildew and leaves them fresh as new. Don't use fabric softeners on your pads, as they inhibit absorbancy and most contain a pretty nasty array of chemicals that you don't really want next to your skin anyway. If you do end up with stains, oxygen bleach works well, and will often even remove set stains if you leave them to soak for a bit.

My pads are constructed to be very sturdy - wash them cold to warm, tumble dry at low heat, or line dry if you prefer :-)

Returns and exchanges
Due to the intimate nature of my product, I do not accept returns. However, in the event of a problem with an order, I always work with the customer to resolve the issue to their satisfaction, either by replacement or refund. Issues that are eligible for refund or replacement are: faulty workmanship, missing items, incorrect items, or lost shipments that did not include tracking service. Photo documentation may be required in some cases. Problems are very rare, but I work diligently to solve them to everyone's satisfaction when they do occur.
Payment
I accept Paypal, check or money order. Paypal e-checks are welcome, but please allow 4-6 days for funds to clear before item will be shipped. For checks please allow 5 days from receipt of check before item is shipped.
Shipping
I make to order and try to complete and ship promptly - usually within 3-7 business days of receiving payment. During times of heavy orders, processing times can be up to 10 business days, as I am only one woman! I ship via USPS first class unless otherwise noted. If you would like Priority mail or insurance, just let me know.

Notice to my International Customers: Due to the recent large increase in postage rates for International packages, Free Shipping no longer applies to International orders. Instead, on items offering Free Shipping in the US, the International rate will be discounted (by the amount of the US shipping charge). Additionally, please allow for at least 2 weeks for items shipped to Canada to clear customs, and in some cases up to a month. Customs times for other countries vary, but up to a month does occasionally happen. All International packages are shipped via First Class, and tracking is only available to the US border. If you would like your package to be trackable all the way to its destination, please contact me about upgraded shipping before you place your order. International Priority rates run approximately $35-40 USD for up to 10 pads.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do accept custom orders, so please convo me know if you would like something in a different size or color than you see listed, or if you would like an item like one already sold. I also can do custom absorbencies and PUL lined wings.
