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!

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!

Cloth sanitary pad starter kit
Wednesday, 10 May 2017  | 

I have been wantimg to try out the cloth sanitary pads for a long while but with having heavy periods, ive been worried about leaking and them not absorbing well enough. I used night time diposable pads during the day as well as at night and still suffered with leaks as well as them being umcomfortable and causing soreness. This is my first time using them this week and they are so soft and confortable. And no leakage during the night with the night pad but a little leakage in the day with the day pads but i thinl thats because they are slightly not long enough and have moved a little. Still very happy with them even for this reason as the comfort factor and night time protection has been amazing. Have reccomended them to my sister in law

Soft & easy to use
Monday, 1 May 2017  | 

This was my first foray into CSPs and I'm definitely a convert. They were easier to use than I expected and I even managed to rinse them at work (the ladies happened to be fairly quiet) before popping the used pad into the wet bag.
I was mindful of them slipping, so paid a lot of attention to the fabric underneath to judge which way around to put them. They worked well.
I did experience leakage on my first v heavy night, so next time will more carefully position pad, and wear knickers that are more snug just for the overnight.
If I were to ask for an improvement, it would be in the pattern options for the bags. Something a little more bold or feminine and less baby like would be great.

Life changing
Monday, 27 March 2017  | 

The have literally been a god send for me, I've had issues with menstrual bleeding for the pads few years and have bled almost everyday for the past 2 years, for the first time in those two years I have had a break of 2 weeks on not bleeding, I believe these are the only thing that have helped with this change as I feel the products in the usual pads had an effect on my body and were playing with my hormones a lot. These are life changing for me thankyou

Great little kit
Friday, 17 March 2017  | 

It's great little kit, that came really quickly. Like some other reviews I'm still getting the hang of the right way round to put it so it doesn't slip. But looking forward to trying it out some more when I need to.

Converted!

Very comfortable, much more absorbant than disposable, no odour. The double popper is very useful in ensuring the pads don't wander whichever knickers you choose. I bought two sets, one with the add on of extra day pads and one with the add on of extra night pads which when mixed up have made two perfect kits! As a household we cannot live without the wires every single day and the travel bags with waterproof section for used pads are beautiful and just the right size for out and about.

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!

An item every woman should have (several of, actually)
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!

Much softer on his face too.

Fabulous product!

I just love these towels. They are so comfy. I have endometriosis so need to wear them everyday. Disposable towels were literally making me miserable, so uncomfortable and itchy. But these are a game changer. Also I have fibromyalgia and am very sensitive to things on my body. So I can't thank you enough. I have various sizes. I hand wash them and they come up like new. ( cold water mind!)

I thought the normal wipes were soft but these are something else! Using on newborn skin without the oils and a million times easier than cotton wool.

Perfect fabric for little hands and faces
Thursday, 4 May 2017  |  Debbie

This is a handy little kit for weaning, especially if you're following baby-led approaches or if little one is a fan of finger foods. Microfibres are the perfect all round cloth for this, pick up the dirt - no matter how sticky - yet they're soft and gentle on baby's skin. The number of wipes I'm saving from landfil is just an added bonus!

Excellent product for post-natal mums

I found these to be a saviour in the weeks after having a baby. They were so much more comfortable than disposable pads and helped give me some much needed comfort. Would definitely recommend to other mums

I wish I had found out sooner !
Tuesday, 2 May 2017  |  Gillian

I'm a forty something woman now , imagine the money and bit of the planet I could have saved if I had discovered cloth sanitary pads as a teenager ?! ( ok cheekywipes weren't invented then ).not to mention the Thrush angle - I've not had thrush ( a regular monthly visitor ) since I switched to cloth towels - makes sense when you think about it your pants don't give you thrush do they ? I've gone for the charcoal ones this time just because my old ones , I've had them for years now , are looking a bit grey - well I would have chucked my old greying pants by now ! They are still perfectly functional but this time if they start off grey then I won't have to think about it .
Snug fitting pants are the answer and as my thong days are gone it's not an issue - just think you will never have that horrible sticky pad sticking in the wrong place or yanking a hair out feeling again !.( ok just me is it ?)

Love them!
Sunday, 16 April 2017  |  Jazz

Absolutely love cheeky wipes, can't believe I waited so long to take the plunge into reuseable wipes. Would highly recommend. Have since purchased extra boxes to use with my newborn and 1year old so we can have a set upstairs and down!
