Around 2.5 million tampons, 1.4 million pads and 700,000 panty liners are flushed every single day here in the UK!
Reusable sanitary pads are a bit like reusable wipes - once you've tried them you'll wish you'd swapped earlier.
Our cloth sanitary pads (often called CSP) are made of with a top layer of comfortable, super-soft bamboo charcoal fleece which sits closest to your body. There's an absorbent inner layer and a hidden waterproof layer that's made from the same breathable PUL which makes our nappies so popular.
The poppers mean your pads stay firmly in place so that slips and leaks are a thing of the past.
This extra large pad is 30x23cm (9cm width plus wings). It's perfect for if you have heavy periods and are looking for something super-absorbent for night time and can be used post-partum.
This set includes a matching waterproof bag in our 'mini' size - perfect for storing your reusable pads until wash day, or when you're out and about. This bag measures 13x18cm and will hold approximately two XL or large pads (or three medium).
We're super-excited to add these to our range - one of our product testers described them as "The best I've ever used!"
Pre-wash your pads a couple of times before you use them for the first time to increase their absorbency.
After you've used your pads it's a good idea to rinse them in cold water to prevent staining.
Simply pop them in your bag and when your period has finished wash them all upto 60 degrees. Please don't use fabric conditioner as this will make your pads less absorbent.
Avoid direct heat - air drying is best.
Our reusable pads are made with an outer layer of bamboo charcoal fleece, which is super-absorbent, reduces smells and is lovely and soft. Inside the pad are three layers of absorbent microfibre and a layer of waterproof PUL.
