Item details

Handmade

Materials

jersey, zorb, flannel, polartec fleece, kam snap

Dimensions

Pad length: 8 in

An 8" rainbow jersey cloth pad. With a bright striped top and an absorbent core of organic cotton flannel and zorb, making this a light flow cloth pad. It is 8" long with a 2.5" snapped middle.
The backer on this pad is a navy blue water resistant polartec fleece, and the pad is held in place with a kam snap. Perfect for using on your lighter flow days or as a menstrual cup backup. The tag label shows you what absorbency your pad is, which is very handy when you have just washed them all together and some are very similar.
Many more women are now switching over to re-usable cloth pads.
CSP are chemical free, zero waste, reusable and long lasting. Better for your health and our environment.
Some women have reported having less cramping and lighter periods after switching to cloth pads.
Whatever your reasons are it's worth giving reusable cloth pads a try, for both you and the environment. They are very easy to use and look after.
Rinse in cold water after use, not hot as that sets the blood to stain,then just wash in your normal 30° or 40° wash cycle.
Never use fabric softener or bleach with cloth pads as it can affect the absorbency of the fabrics.
They can be dried in a tumble dryer on low, however i find that a natural combination of solar and wind power is much better, a good old fashioned washing line.

Comfort has got to be one of the best reasons for the switch. Cloth pads are soft and absorbent and don't contain any chemicals, which means they are better for you, and the environment.
Women have reported having lighter and less painful periods since using cloth, and with no rash or irritation.
They can be made to your choice of size and absorbency, you can decide which core materials are used and what fabric you prefer next to your skin.
Your skin absorbs whatever is put on it, think about face creams, body lotions or stop smoking patches, the harmful chemicals that go into the making of disposable sanitary towels are against a most sensitive area of your body.
It's worth giving cloth a try, to see for yourself.
Cloth sanitary pads (CSP) are snapped around the gusset of your close fitting underwear with a kam snap fastener.
This is what holds them in place.
The soft pretty side is worn next to your skin, we use patterned cottons or jersey, and organic fabrics like bamboo velour, which is hand dyed, and our undyed or bare organics.
The core or inner layers are manufactured by Wazoodle Fabrics in the USA. They specialise in absorbent and organic materials. How many layers will depend on what level of absorbency you need.
The backer is a water resistant layer of specialist fleece, or in liners it's corduroy, which is also to helps keep the pad from sliding around in the underwear.
These are all designed to be soft comfortable and fully reusable.
By using the best quality absorbent fabrics available we hope to eliminate any problems with leaking.
Making sure you're in the right absorbency of pad helps too.
All of our pads have indicator tags sewn into them with between one and four drops on. A heavy pad will easily absorb a light flow, but a light drop pad will not cope well with a heavy flow.
We can all get caught out by an unexpectedly heavy period, and even disposables leak when that happens.
As with everything, once it is saturated it will leak.
However, the beauty of cloth pads is that you don't have to keep a pad on to feel like you're getting your moneys worth.
Change the pad whenever you begin to feel uncomfortable.
Wash the pad, dry it and its ready to reuse again.
After using your CSP rinse off any blood in cold water, not hot as that will set the stain. Wash as normal on a 30° or 40° wash load.
NEVER use any fabric softener with cloth pads. Softener is designed to smooth out fibres, and this makes liquids run off, and makes them less absorbent.
I find that soap nuts are the best washing product for pads as they are totally natural and don't contain any chemicals.
Pads can be tumble dried on a low heat cycle, but they are best line dried in the fresh air, sun and wind. The sun helps to naturally fade out any stubborn stains. Solar and wind power are free, so saving you money.
So rinse in cold water, wash in machine or by hand, no softener and line dry.
