Frequently asked questions
Which way do you wear cloth pads?

I make my pads so that the pretty side is worn towards the body. (fleece towards your undies)

I am new to cloth and I don’t know where to start?

I would recommend firstly to measure the length of your standard disposables that you use and use this a guide for your first purchase of any reusable pads. Secondly – as cloth pads do not stick to your undies like disposables do I would also recommend wearing knickers that fit snugly(well – not tightly) so your pad can stay in place.

How wash my cloth pads?

Basic hygiene is an essential part of using reusable pads, they must be cleaned well and stored in a well aired and hygienic place. (Optional) Rinse after use and apply stain stick(if needed). Before washing in a standard washing machine it is recommended to place pads on a rinse + spin to remove residual menstrual fluid. Then place in a standard wash with detergent.

How do I store my cloth pads?

When in use – a PUL lined wet-bag or a small bin are ideal. I would recommend purchasing a small wet-bag for use when out and about.
When clean – a well aired and clean drawer/shelf.

How to undo detergent build-up?

Ensure your machine is clean. You should run a maintenance cycle once a month. If you haven't done this lately run this first and check your machine filters are clean.
Next put the pads through a rinse cycle only with no detergent. If your machine doesn't have a rinse only cycle use a cool quick wash. This is to get them nice and wet already so there is more water held in them for the main washes.
Next wash using a FULL dose of detergent and wash at 40 degrees on a long cycle (approx 2.5-3hours) and ideally additional water (sensitive or sometimes called super rinse)
No need to dry in between for the second wash, use 40 degrees on the longest possible wash as above with no detergent and ideally additional water.

How many pads would you recommend in cloth?

I would take note of how many disposables you use and go from there. Women vary a great deal with regards to flow and length of period.

Can menstrual fluid travel through fleece?

Fleece can become damaged with the use of harsh chemicals + hot drying. Ensure you follow the correct wash procedure to allow for pads to last for a long period of time.
Another factor could be the saturation of the core(absorbent) fabric. If your core is full, it is possible to go through your pad, this is not a fault of the fleece but rather a sign that you need to change your pad more often.

Can I hand-wash my cloth pads?

Hand-washing is entirely possible but; as with machine washing it is essential to make sure that items are well washed and dried(and the appropriate detergent is used).

Do they slip around? Is the fabric shiny?

My pads are backed with fleece(the part that sits towards your undies), it grips well and doesn't have a slippy texture.
