What are these?
Reusable Menstrual pads made with cotton and Zorb®, a lightweight blend of organic cotton and polyester with a hidden waterproof layer of 2-mil polyurethane film laminated in between.
A handmade, reusable menstrual pad to use as an alternative to single use, plastic sanitary pads (here's hoping we hear the end of this term soon!).
Perfect for anyone aspiring to a less-waste lifestyle.
Length: 20cm approx
Width: 7cm approx
What are they made from?
Organic Cotton - super soft against your skin. The dimpled texture has great retention, superior hold, fast distribution of moisture and less leaking under compression.The outer pattern is also organic cotton.
Polyester - Super-wicking ProCool Stay Dry interlock fabric, for extra protection from leakage.
Polyurethane film - for waterproofing.
The core pad absorbs 10 times its weight in under 2 seconds and soaks up 20 times faster than other materials (bamboo, cotton, hemp knits).
These are made with metal stud presses to reduce plastic content.
Vegan and Cruelty Free
Ethically Handmade in the UK
Why are they fabulous?
The average person who bleeds uses 4 single use plastic pads a day on average during their period.
The average period lasts for approximately 5 days.
Thats 240 single use, plastic pads going into landfill each year!
Our Reusable Menstrual pads are machine washable and reusable, preventing all that excess plastic from heading to landfill!
How to care for them:
Wash before use. Machine washable up to 40 degrees.
Washing cloth pads isn't gross. For gently used pads, rinse and put them in with your regular laundry load. For heavily soaked pads pre rinse in cold water (never hot) to wash out as much blood as possible then add to laundry. It is always best to not allow your pad to dry out before washing to minimise staining.
These are also suitable as incontinence pads.
