Why Cloth menstrual pads:
– Less contact with harmful chemicals
– Save money and the environment

– Cloth menstrual pads, like all menstrual pads, remove the risk of TSS associated with tampons.
How to Use:
– Snap up pad around underwear with the grey (bamboo charcoal) side up.
– Change pad when required (usually around 4-6 hours) depending on your flow and your personal choice. However you will quickly find out the best time frame for changes.
– After use Rinse pads with cold water to prevent staining. Then place into diaper pail or into a separate pail or wet bag. Pads do not need soaking.
– Wash with diapers or separately…cold rinse with no detergent followed by a hot wash with 1/2 the recommended amount of detergent. Dry in dryer or hang in sun to dry.
