Reusable, Washable Cloth Menstrual Pads

Added Jul 28, 2010

With the uncertainty of the safety of the chemicals used to make disposable menstrual pads, a lot of women are switching to cloth. Today’s cloth pad’s are very different from what your grandmother is used to. Today, they are waterproof, snap in place, are absorbent, you can even toss them in the washer and dryer! They also come in every fabric imaginable. So, you can find any pad to match your personality.

You can even use them as an everyday pantyliner, or even an incontinent pad.

I make them in 4 different sizes. Mini is approximately 21cm (8 inches) long; Regular is approximately 27cm (10 1/2 inches) long; Long is approximately 32cm (12 1/2 inches) long; Heavy/Postpartum is approximately 36cm (14 inches) long; Wings are approximately 18cm (7 inches) across

    Great work! I used reusable pads for a few months (until I bought a Mooncup) and they were so comfy and soft!

    I have seen cloth pads before, but not with the removable inserts, brilliant!

    I am working on getting instructions up on how to make your own. Not a lot of free time right now, I will get the instructions here when I can.
