If you want a great set of cloth reusable pads you came to the right place! This set of four 8” pads comes with a 4.5”x5.5” pad wrapper. This accessory is great for keeping your pads clean between uses or for stashing a used one until you get home. This set is great for moderate period flow or light urinary leakage.
The top: all pads are cotton woven topped. This patterned side is the one that touches your skin.
The core: moderate flow cloth pads such as these have one layer of Zorb and one layer of cotton batting. It is 2.5” at the narrowest point where the snaps join underneath your underwear.
The backing: the white backing tells you that this set of pads features a hidden layer of polyurethane laminate (PUL) which allows the pad to function as closely to a disposable in terms of its ability to keep moisture away from your underwear. The flow will not touch your underwear and will stay in the core. It will eventually need to be changed, as the core can only absorb so much.
The purple tag indicates light flow
Red tag indicates moderate flow
Blue tag indicates heavy flow
Orange tag indicates heavy flow in a longer or overnight length (12-16”).
Wash: when out of the house, you can store used pads without rinsing in a pad wrapper until you get home. Alternatively, rinse pads in cold water immediately after use and store in wet bag (see our laundry, care and storage section) until washing day. Use low residue detergent or soap nuts on cold or warm water and follow with medium to high dryer, no fabric softener.
Recommend: Lift all natural stain stick from MilkHoneySoapery on Etsy. This will keep your pads looking beautiful and can even be used on any other stains in your household!
