  • Cloth Pad Re-Evolution

    Thought I would be the first to post in this section.

    I have always been a tampon user. Pads often irritated me, I needed to change more often & just were not my thing (unless I had irritation and inserting a tampon irritated it).

    Then when becoming more sustainable and purchased a couple of menstrual cups, thought I best have a back up incase the cups are not for me.

    So I purchased a bunch of bamboo pads. Lone and behold - officially converted!

    They absorbed SO MUCH! I only changed twice per day even on the heavy days and that was because after each shower I cannot bear to wear a used one again. Most of the time I never saw anything on the surface to even know if it needed changing, then when rinsing it out before putting it into a wet bag with the other used ones to all go into a load, I realised yep there was a lot of blood there.

    Super soft, thick and comfy hand on my heart, if I as a non pad wearer can switch to cloth pads anyone can.

    I have been using cloth reusable pads for 6yrs. After my merina IUD shifted and I bled for 3 months straight. My poor lady bits was raw wearing disposables. Infact any time I had my period after that, I had some kind of painful reaction to them. I took the plunge using the reusables and my lady bits were so much better and so soft.

      Sorry to hear about your IUD! How painful!
      Honestly once you go cloth you never go back! I have super sensitive skin and even panty liners would give me an irritation. Not anymore! Goes to show how many chemicals and synthetics are in them. Wish I made the change YEARS ago.
