Cheeky Mama Cloth Period Pads with wings - for normal flow
Size: 22cm x 7cm (approx.) suitable for most days of your period, or general incontinence.
- Wash at 20c or 30c, warm washing sets blood stains and can damage your pads. Line dry, reshape whilst damp.
- You can give them a squirt of stain spray and/or add a scoop of stain powder to the wash.
- Do not bleach or fabric softener. Do not tumble dry (I dry my pads overnight on the radiator)
Bamboo / Minky: Leakproof Minky outer, two layers microfibre, inner layer bamboo charcoal micro fleece.
The bamboo minky pads are made from charcoal micro fleece with a minky outer, being manmade materials, these tend to be a little warmer to wear than the cotton pads but the bamboo minky pads are also slightly thicker and therefore more absorbent than cotton pads, so if your periods are on the heavy side, we'd recommend these pretty pads.
Cheeky Mama Cloth Sanitary Pads are an eco-friendly, healthier, more cost effective alternative to disposable pads. For those new to cloth sanitary pads (csp) the concept can be a little “Ew!” but to be honest using cloth as opposed to disposables is more comfortable. Because they are so much more absorbent, moisture is drawn into the pad, leaving you feeling fresher for longer.
Disposables have to contain lots of nasty toxic chemicals, dioxins and gels to enable them to be absorbent, which can lead to sensitive skin, irritation and thrush. Bamboo however, has a natural antibacterial quality and because it allows your skin to breath, can potentially reduce the risk of yeast infections and discomfort.
Of course it goes without saying that cloth pads will cost a fraction of what you would be spending on disposables each month which just end up sitting in landfill!
