Is it best to get a bulk pack of pads and if so how many? Or just keep using disposable ones? I buy the 'el-cheapo' ones anyway, but thought if I had some cloth ones it might help save a bit of money in the long run. I don't mind doing washing. Do I just soak them in Nappysan or what? Where can I get bulk packs online? Thanks

Re: Advice of cloth pads please
It would depend on your flow as to how many you'd need. I don't use pads myself, i use a menstrual cup. $50-$60 for years of use.

I bought a pack of 5 but paid way too much. Look around.
Also, I soak mine in cold water then use the water on my garden (instead blood and bone). Wonderful fertiliser if you're not too queezy.

I use a menstrual cup too, I also sell these and cloth pads on my website:
There are many places to buy cloth pads such as Etsy (more US based but many will ship to Australia) and the Cloth Pad Shop (which is a online shopping mall made up of a number of sellers - work at home Mums).
Washing pads is very easy, I rinse mine out after use and then put in a nappy bucket in cold water (hot water sets stains). Then after couple of days of this soak I wash with my usual wash. Its just like washing your usual underwear. You can use colour safe soakers, but avoid use of these in coloured bamboo velours and coloured hemp.
I have recently tried Rock n Green. It is a bit pricey tho as not made locally. One of the active ingredients in this is sodium percarbonate which is colour safe soaker. I did get good results with removal of stains with this product. It says to wash your pads on hot on the instructions. I never do this as this can degrade the wet proof lining. Usually I wash pads with warm water.
Hope this helps Bec
