Our Cheeky Mama Cloth Sanitary Pad starter kits contain:

Optional: Add extra pads, some reusable intimate wipes or a mucky box to soak your dirty pads 

Bamboo & Minky pad kits contain 5 pads in different colours.

Care Instructions:  Wash at 20c or 30c, warm washing sets blood stains and can damage your pads.  Line dry, reshape whilst damp.

Cheeky Mama Cloth Sanitary Pads are an eco-friendly, healthier, more cost effective alternative to disposable pads. For those new to cloth sanitary pads (csp) the concept can be a little “Ew!” but to be honest using cloth as opposed to disposables is more comfortable. Because they are so much more absorbent, moisture is drawn into the pad, leaving you feeling fresher for longer.

Disposables have to contain lots of nasty toxic chemicals, dioxins and gels to enable them to be absorbent, which can lead to sensitive skin, irritation and thrush. Bamboo however, has a natural antibacterial quality and because it allows your skin to breath, can potentially reduce the risk of yeast infections and discomfort.

Of course it goes without saying that cloth pads will cost a fraction of what you would be spending on disposables each month which just end up sitting in landfill! If you're new to all this (or just new to Cheeky Mama's) then read our top tips on how to use Cheeky Mama Cloth Pads, plus how to care for your Cheeky Mama Cloth Pads - it couldn't be easier!

Rule 1 for CSPS - don't use fabric with a nap
Monday, 25 September 2017  | 

I have recently made the conversion to reusable sanitary products and encountered the Cheeky Wiies website with much excitement. I ordered the starter kit of Cheeky Mama Cloth Pads and I'm disappointed and frustrated. They LOOK ace. Lovely fun designs, gorgeous soft fabrics. But. There are a list of buts. 1. The backing fabric has a nap. Really? Rule 1 for getting fabric pads to stay in place in your pants SURELY has to be to avoid fabrics with a nap? I put them with the nap facing front to back and the pad moved forward as I walk, and vice versa. I nearly ended up in tears in a supermarket without a loo, a heavy period, and a wandering pad. Use flannel. Use cotton. Use anything without a nap! Please! 2. The wings run from end to end of the pad, irrespective of the size of the pad, so when you try to close the wings around your pants on anything other than the panty liner the wings pull your pants in/bunch them up. This also encourages the pad to move around. Disposables figured out pad shaping, lots of CSP makers also figured this out. Why didn't I figure this out before ordering?! 3. The stitching in the terry (at the sides of the absorbent part) is too near the edge to prevent bunching. They are very bulky pads overall (because of the minky) and so I was conscious of ten being visible through skinny jeans but also spent a day feeling like I was getting a permanent wedgy in my lady parts!

The fabrics are beautifully soft, I love the terry, and they're super absorbent. But unwearable. This has been an expensive mistake and I wish I'd just bought one to try first. Sorry Cheeky Wipes.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review the pads, we do appreciate it and I'm sorry they haven't worked for you. The nap can be tricky but we have all found that by turning the pad round 180 degrees, so the nap goes in the opposite direction that they do stay put all day. Both Helen (founder) and myself wore the pads for a few days at a trade exhibition last week and they stayed in place and were as comfy as usual (we have been using them for a couple years but both "needed" them at the same time whilst away!)
I go for the day pad size and wear my trusty M&S bikini style pants with a lycra in and again, this works well for me whether I'm in skinny jeans or work out gear. In fact, I find my skinny jeans help keep them in place! I hope that helps and you can perhaps give them another go?

Fab starter pack!
Thursday, 17 August 2017  | 

A great starter pack - have had no leaking at all. Need to purchase a few more pads but I definitely will now. I am converted, so easy to care for too. Only downside is that in order to keep the pads tight to underwear the fastening poppers are quite close together which can cause the pad to bunch up a little. Any advice to avoid this appreciated. Despite this I have had no leaks and will definitely continue to use.

Starter Pack
Saturday, 12 August 2017  | 

I dont have periods anymore but I have a medical problem "down there" which requires me to wear a pad daily. Ive tried every pad on sale to not only find comfort for but also something that isnt irritating my skin as I was getting some sort of chemical burn there. I decided to opt for something more natural and came across cheeky wipes, read the reviews etc. I did contact them and their responses were prompt and helpful. I chose the starter pack, no problems at all, comfy, non irritant and in the long run will save me a lot of money. They wash very well too.

Trial cheeky mama kit
Friday, 21 July 2017  | 

I decided to try these after being fed up of the stickiness of disposable pads. I am not disappointed- the day pads are supper absorbent and not too bulky. The night pad is rather bulky but does a great job. I shall be buying a second set

Comfortable and Absorbent Pads
Friday, 14 July 2017  | 

I recently bought cloth nappies to use with my baby and also thought I'd invest in the washable wipes too. Not only does it help save money and the environment which I was very conscious about but they are really great to use. So I thought I'd try the pads. I've used them for the first time and think they're great. They're very soft and much more absorbent than I thought they would be. I'll definitely be investing in more.

Better than expected
Thursday, 6 July 2017  | 

I was a little apprehensive about trying cloth sanitary towels. My periods are heavy and I routinely had to use night time disposables throughout my period. I bought the starter pack which only has one night time pad so I did wonder if it would be a disaster. I needn't have worried. The pads are pretty (I got mixed patterns) and super soft. They feel comfortable to wear and no slippage if you take care to check that the nap is in the right direction and knickers are well fitting. No leaking problems and the day time pad coped fine. Washing out was simple and they come up as new. I used a little bit of vanish and washed on a cold setting. They take a while to dry so the starter pack wasn't big enough to get me through my whole period but I'm so pleased with the towels that I've ordered some more. Being environmental is a bonus.

Amazing - but not perfect
Thursday, 15 June 2017  | 

I really really want to be able to give these 5 stars because I love them but there were just a few niggly bits that I found frustrating. Firstly, while the larger pads are relatively secure thanks to the popper, the panty liner was forever shuffling to the very front or very back of my pants making it quite uncomfortable and requiring adjustment that wouldn't be possible in public every few minutes. Also, although they washed brilliantly, the bamboo does take quite a long time to dry fully, even in the super strong sunshine we've had lately.
Other than that, I think these are fantastic. So much more comfortable against your skin than traditional pads and great for the environment.

Response:

The pads are brilliant and can work perfectly - just a couple of ideas for you to stop the slipping - the underside fabric (the minky side) can be brushed in 2 different directions. If you are finding the pad slipping a little, try turning it 180 degrees so what was at the front is now at the back - this sounds odd but if the fabric is going in the other direction it grips better on your underwear and stays put! We also recommend wearing a tighter pant with a high percentage of lycra in, this also helps keep them in place.

Fantastic, comfortable and earth friendly way of having your period! I was a bit apprehensive, but these do work well and feel so much fresher than store-bought pads. I'm happy, wlill be ordering more soon.

Less than expected
Friday, 12 May 2017  | 

No, not the product quality... they're soft, absorbent and comfortable.
The over all cost and the number of pads needed was less than I'd expected. I really wasn't sure about doing this because of the initial outlay, I started with pantyliners and once I realised one liner lasted all day and how fab these are, I decided to invest in the sanitary pads too. Highly recommended!

Massive. Baby soft. Smell beautiful!
Monday, 6 November 2017  |  Emma

Bought these as just switched to cloth nappies and disposable wipes were actually more fuss. I’d had a selection of wipes to borrow from our local nappy library and they did the job, but I was so excited when these arrived!

They are HUGE! I am sure one alone will easily cope with a significant poo job or some serious pasta sauce decoration, leaving plenty for freshening up & the rest of the time. I have no concerns about getting mucky fingers.

They are also super soft (we have bamboo velour) and smell beautiful with the oils (so much so I think I can use a little less and make it last longer). We also received some free minkee/bamboo ones with cute little designs on them. They’re even softer (I can’t stop stroking them!) so we decided to keep them dry and use for face freshens with a little tap water and ‘drying off’ when bottom air time is not easy (e.g. when we’re out and about). However the soaking box has enough room for the extras if we did want them wet!

We had a couple of small hiccups with ordering - a missing email and some free wipes left off- but the customer service team were absolutely fantastic and got things sorted super fast. I always feel the mark of a good company is not being faultless but in being experts at fixing issues, and the team were fantastic.

Thank you for a lovely product. Highly recommended!

I'm a convert
Monday, 16 October 2017  |  Helen

I'll admit to being sceptical about cloth pads, but after years of irritation and painful rashes caused by disposables I decided to give them a go. I went for the full kit as it gave me a mixture of pads, some cotton, some minky and with different lengths and so far I'm very impressed. No leaks at all and they're so comfortable. I don't even know I have them on! The free wipes that came with the pads are lovely and soft and the mucky box is great for discretely soaking used pads. I would definitely recommend and will be buying again.

Fabulous make up removal pads
Wednesday, 4 October 2017  |  Maya

I absolutely love these colourful make up removal pads. I chose the gorgeous rainbow pattern ones. I have been using them for a couple of weeks and really impressed with how well they remove my makeup. I'm trying to slowly start using reusable items for myself and family so thought this would be a good place to start. I would normally use at least 10 cotton wool pads in a day for my daily routine, whereas now one cheeky wipes removal pads will do! I love the two textures to the pads, the patterned side it so soft and great for the eye area, takes mascara off no problem and the other side is good for giving your face a good scrub! I'm converted! x

Toilet Paper Alternative Family Cloth Wipes Kit
Thursday, 21 September 2017  |  Ella

I was extremely suspicious that this would be gross, but after eharing about it on radio 2, my husband wouldn't stop talking about it, and since we're planning to use reusable nappies for our hopefully-arriving-soon baby I thought we'd give it a go. We love them, they feels great and make the bathroom smell good, Would recommend to give it a go, especially after seeing that article in the BBC news about the 250 fat berg of toilet paper they found under London!

Glad I made the move
Friday, 1 September 2017  |  Lauri

I was definitely one of those ewww! people. But having started using the sani pads recently (and wished I had found them years ago) and then hearing you on Radio 2 I thought I'd give the toilet set a go. It took a while for me to unpack the parcel and start to use it (still at the squeamish stage) but everything is so well thought out, even the way the mesh bag fits into the mucky box and the smells from the added scented oils are great and so refreshing. So now I can say I have used it for a number 2 as well as number 1 and am delighted with how easy it is and how fresh I feel. There's nothing more annoying than paper that tears when you're wiping, and this eliminates all that. I am new to this and haven't washed them yet but it all seems to be going very smoothly. I have now ordered some of the rainbow cloths to replace my cleaning cloths and kitchen paper. Final step is to convince the rest of the family! So glad I found this product!

So pleased with these !
Thursday, 3 August 2017  |  Rebecca

I am so impressed with the quality of these wipes. Trying to talk my husband round to using reusable wipes (already use reusable nappies) was a bit tricky but once they arrived and I showed him how they work he thinks they're fantastic ! I bought the full kit and additional wipes to keep in the bathroom as facial wipes. I keep a wet bag in my handbag for out and about, a box in the kids room and facial wipes in the bathroom. I didn't realise how well 25 wipes would do (I bought a total of 65) so I've been able to keep some aside for when our third baby arrives. 25 wipes is all I have had to use for my two messy Boys, I wash them every other day to freshen them up but even then I don't always go through the whole 25 as even for the stinkiest bums I only need one !! I've had some real messy ones and no 'pong' from them after washing and the mucky box stops them from stinking out the house perfectly, in fact the mucky box doesn't even smell when I open it that's to the essential oils. I've been raving about these to everyone even for facial wipes for those without children. Once baby #3 is born I also plan to try the reusable feminine products. Using these is so easy (and cheap!). I was spending a fortune on water wipes. Very long review I know but these really are fantastic !

No more toilet roll!
Thursday, 13 July 2017  |  Ruth

Well initially I was a little grossed out by the idea of this but had recently bought some cloth sanitary pads (sorry, not CW) elsewhere as I was fed up of buying so many TENA let alone filling the bin and landfill with them, I was so pleasantly surprised at how nice they were and my friend had been raving about how great CW were for her kids that I decided I would take the adult version plunge! Toilet Paper Alternative. I've had to pack them away for a few weeks while my bathroom is being renovated (I didn't want my lovely wipes and boxes to be covered in dust, muck and dirt!) and I miss them so much!!! I can honestly say once the bath room is finished there will be no going back! You feel so fresh! You only need one wipe per visit whether you're doing a "number 2" or just a pee. Not having to buy loads of toilet paper and flushing so much down the toilet is just a bonus!! Like some others have commented the mucky box is a bit small for using as a toilet paper alternative but I love the system and that the mucky box even has a scent too! I might look into the idea that others have suggested of a pedal bin with the mesh bag as the bag is much bigger than the mucky wipes box. I love all the different scents and bought them all to try. I also got some flannel wipes for hands and face and use the rose and geranium oil with a bit of the coconut oil for them. Lovely! I've got dermatitis on my hands and they just love the coconut oil!
Hurry up workmen, I want to use my cheeky wipes again!

Tuesday, 11 July 2017  |  Carole

In my search of trying to be more eco-friendly I am so glad I came across these pads! If anything I should have bought more, and I certainly will. Very comfortable, do the job and easy to wash. Perfect!
