I first saw them on "it'sjustkelli" a you tube video. I purchased them because of her rare and honest Opinion!! She is awersome!!! They are soft not stiff to the touch, they did not feel bunky to me when i wore them very comfortable. I did wash them by hand before wearing them acause with my handy laundry soap bar i got at the 99cent store that i use also on my underwear rinse repeat no instructions came with my mine so i went by what kelli video said. I read a comment someone wrote that their daughter had trouble with chafing and Leaking with the disaposible pads...well me too!!! I through it was just me losing my mind because my pad would bunch and no matter how I place my pad right in between my vagina lips still leakage and it wasn't Absorbing like it did in my 20's. I'm about to be 37 and I needed help! I found the lunette cup it helps alot but still seaching for a better cup. Im on my period now tonight I will try it no cup I went to bed with it on my heavy day placed right between my lips :) went to sleep at 9pm woke up at 8am still feeling dry, no chaffing, no bleed sliding dw my butt cheeks onto my undies and sheets_lol. I sleep wild my sheets was clean. I washed it and it held a lot of bleed took some time left it to soak to remove some tough stains out hoply it works, If not it's okay their my period pads. I'm so pleased with his product!!! Love love them!!!!
So far so good! As a reusable pad veteran I really enjoy these they are much less bulky than the cloth pads I have used previously and I almost forget they are there! For anyone saying that the pads shift the underwear you wear matters when it comes to these kind of pads. I typically wear either the cotton/ spandex kind of underwear or the old school girdle style briefs (my mom use to call them "tummy-tuckers")- either way the panties need to be more form fitting to minimize the shifting that can happen. I also tend to leak onto the wing a bit and these pads hold it ALL without messing up my underwear. Love these pads- double thumbs up!
I wanted to write an honest review. I am not saying the other reviews are not honest, but my reviews for products are typically short and sweet, and I spent a lot of time researching these particular products and other reusable feminine products and would like to give back to those who helped me.
I purchased these to try them out as my first reusable panty liner/pad (whatever you want to refer to them as). I liked the price as many other products were very expensive. I liked that there were three in a pack, and that they came with a bag that I could use for the (eh hem) used ones.
I first tried these for overnight as that is typically the only time I wear a pad/panty liner. They did not move around in my underwear, and I thought the snaps were the perfect size for my body and the type of underwear I wore. There was no leakage and I was rather heavy.
Washing was very easy. Due to the part that has contact with your body being a light color, even when I put them through the wash 2-3 times you can still see a dark spot where stuff was. I am not worried about it- I am the only one seeing them.
Overall, this was a fantastic product. I also liked that the seller reached out to me via e-mail personally just to touch base. I would highly recommend this product and seller, and I look forward to purchasing more!
I bought these for my daughter as she's too young to use a cup. She loves them. No stains on her clothes. They're thin and comfortable.
To launder, first I wash them separately in a quick, cold wash with nothing added. Then I wash again with a little oxygen bleach. I use laundry balls for all my laundry but detergent will work, just don't use very much as they will become stiff. (Lessons learned from many years of washing cloth diapers.) Add distilled white vinegar to the fabric softener dispenser (this is great for all laundry) and you're set. I usually lay them flat to dry and they dry overnight. They can be put in the dryer, though.
I came back to order another set and was disappointed to see that this size isn't currently available. Now I have to try another brand and hope it's good.
I love these. I was totally skeptical, but I wear them at night for bed when I am on my period and wow, they are COMFORTABLE. It feels like a soft pillow. They can handle quite a lot of flow. I hand wash them and then throw them in with a load. I prefer drying them in the dryer. They are rather large (in a good way.) I wear an 8/10 or a medium. These are my first reusable pads and I think they will last years. I have used them for about 4 cycles now. Definitely cost friendly in the long-run and haven't leaked yet! The backing almost feels like thick tent material and does not leak.
These are excellent. For anyone who wears maxipads, they'll be very comfortable with these reusable pads. They're comfortable, they don't smell, they are SO easy to take care of--just rinse them out after using until the water runs clear, splash on a bit of hydrogen peroxide, throw them in the washing mashine and they come out perfectly clean! These are also the only pads that I've found that will hold up to super heavy bleeding from fibroids (like 80ml/day at the heaviest). Totally leak-proof, but if you're a bleed-over-the-side kinda girl or a side sleeper, you can still bleed over the side and into your clothes at night. If you're a front or back sleeper these would be ideal. Much more comfortable than an overnight disposable pad and better at catching fast flowing blood because of the bamboo cotton topper. Plus they save you so much money in the long run and you never again have to worry about whether or not you have to run out to buy pads. I wish I knew about these sooner. Also, these are just as good as those fancy $50 disposable pads ... maybe not as pretty but definitely as effective!!
These do work and they clean up easily without the need for bleach or any other harsh chemicals. I was not expecting them to work so well on my heavy days, but they do! I also love how comfortable they are! If you have two or more heavy days, I suggest you buy at least two packages of these to get you through. I will be buying more and very soon!
