    I'm not bothered by it particularly but I do think replacing them every 5 years is a bit off, particularly if they are stained like they were in that clip.

    yeah that was pretty gross, thus my point you'd be replacing them relatively quickly, which would make it just as expensive. I think it's different than cloth pads - not only is one blood the other poo (I find the latter much worse), but most women don't have a basket of stained cloth pads sitting in a basket by the loo, so if they are a little strained no one sees them anyway .

    Haven't read all posts, but I recently saw an interview with a 100 yr old woman who, when asked what the best invention of her lifetime was, said that flushing toilets and toilet paper was the best. I can see her point. Sanitation has improved out of sight since we've had flushing loos and toilet paper that hasn't required the kind of washing you mention in op. I know it's an option to wash your own, but the benefits of not using material far, far, far outweigh and environmental/budget factors of using cloth.

    It's not really any different to washing out your undies if you've unexpectedly had AF rear her ugly head.
    I used to be grossed out by the thought of menstrual cups but now I'm converted. I actually find it fascinating.
    But each to their own.

    Exactly. Not much different to using cloth pads either.

    My mum always says there was nothing worse then having to use cloth sanitary napkins when she was a teenager, and hated her mum for making her use them when disposable ones were available.

    OMG I cant get over that show.. it amazes me how much they get for so little and how they store it all and are so organised. I like the families that donate to churches etc with all their goods.. I wish we had it here , I would so do it and set up a food/supply bank

    For me there's a big difference between menstrual blood, which is actually quite clean, and poo. Each to their own i guess. I would be fine using a cup or cloth pads, but no way I would reuse toilet cloths
