Why you should be making the switch!
They are fragrant free, chemical free and plastic free (aside from the snaps).This means there’s little to no sweating, irritation and chafing when you wear reusable cloth pads. Some people are sensitive to the bleaching agents used to get disposable pads their pristine white color; switching to cloth pads is an immense relief to many people because of that.
NOTE: Our pads are made printed side facing up. This is the side you menstruate on. The solid side is the liquid resistant side and needs to face towards your underwear. We know there are many different ways to create a pad, and if you've tried Amazon or "No Name" brands, they normally have the printed side facing your underwear. The printed fabric they use is a PUL and it waterproof. The problem this fabric can cause is making the pad slip around in the underwear. It could cause sweating and it won't decompose as well as a pad without that PUL layer.
Our reusable menstrual cloth pads are made by hand. Keeping that in mind, they can have small imperfections. Note that the print may vary in colour and print placement.
