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.

What's the difference between these and the cotton pads? The bamboo minky pads are made of bamboo viscose or charcoal microfleece with a minky outer, being manmade materials, these tend to be a little warmer to wear than the cotton pads. The bamboo minky pads are also slightly thicker and therefore more absorbent than cotton pads, so if your periods are on the heavy side, we'd recommend the bamboo minky rather than the cotton.

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!

Starter kit
Thursday, 8 August 2019  | 

I wasn’t sure what I was getting into buying these products. Filling out the survey helped a lot as I was given advice on what products would best suit my needs. It has been good to try different types of the products to best gauge what I prefer. The price is also very reasonable.

Great starter kit
Monday, 15 July 2019  | 

Ordered this kit to compliment the the period pants I also purchased. I wore these with the pants and with my everyday pants. The absorbancy is really good. The day pads dealt easily with a medium flow. They rinsed out nicely and washed well on a 30-degree wash. The liner is good for end of period days. I haven't tried the evening pad yet. Really impressed. Will need a few more to cover a whole week though. The wet/dry bag is also really handy for out and about

I have used these pads as a back up when using my cup. I found the nighttime and day pads great. super soft, they wash well and absorb really well. The only issue i experienced with the liners was them moving when worn.

Mama cloth sanitary pads
Tuesday, 23 April 2019  | 

Brought this set as a trial after suffering terribly with flooding for years, I LOVE them. The thing I find most impressive is the absorbancy, I would have to change a plastic disposable pad really frequently and was paranoid about the smell, they also made me really sore. All of that has been eliminated by these pads. I was sceptical at first but they are so comfortable, easy to clean and wash and dry quickly I have used them for 2 periods now and I have just invested in a full kit! The night pads in particular are a dream and used with the reusable knickers I'm now able to sleep through a night. So happy and well worth the investment. If unsure go for the starter kit like I did *which is fab by the way* and trial them. Only small point is the double wet bag which comes with the kit is too big for me use while out and about so maybe give the option of selecting a smaller size at the point of ordering?
Love cheeky wipes!!!!

Fab!

After feeling a bit dubious about using washable pads my fears have not been founded. These pads are so comfortable to wear, super absorbent and so easy to wash out and dry. I had no problems at all using them. Am so glad I made the switch from disposables!

Nice idea
Friday, 15 February 2019  | 

I like the idea of reusable sanitary pads, and they are really soft, comfy and wash easily. They do slip on me personally even when wearing tight pants so I only use them at home. However I feel they are expensive for what they are and that if they were cheaper more people may use them. I don’t see the point in the bag if it can’t go into the washing machine regularly.

Pretty Pattern
Friday, 15 February 2019  | 

After looking at different ways to be more environmentally friendly I decided to change to reusable pads. I love the pattern and the pads are comfortable and well made. I haven't yet used them for a period, so I can't comment how well they work. I am having an issue with them staying in place. Not sure how to get round this to avoid leaks?

A revelation
Thursday, 15 August 2019  |  Alis

These are the best. Comfortable, silky, a little bit sexy. Super absorbent, but not bulky at all. Easy to wash. Easy to wear. I love them. And zero irritation from nasty plastics or chemicals. Win win.

I hate wearing pads, but because of my insomnia I can't wear tampons at night as I have irregular sleep times.

I bought a pair last month to try and ended up washing every day and wearing the entire period. I have ordered 3 more now! So comfy for nighttime when you need to relax.

So simple, could have used from birth
Friday, 2 August 2019  |  Roisin

I waited until my baby was 10 weeks before ordering these, thinking that they'd be too tricky for the crazy early weeks. It took me all of 2 minutes to set up and we haven't used a wet wipe since. If anything this is easier than wet wipes - just a trip to the washing machine between sets, rather than the shop. I'd highly recommend this to everyone from birth: cheeky wipes take out all the headaches for a pleasant, fragrant, quick and eco change.

So easy to make the switch!
Monday, 15 July 2019  |  Rachel

I am so glad I got the full kit with a mix of cotton and minkey style pads, it gave me a chance to experiment with the different options and decide which worked best for me. It also made moving over to reusables so easy as I had everything I needed on hand to get going, At the same time I also purchased a double wet bag and a 3 pack of period pants. Having only used these items for one period so far, I did still have to use a disposable pad because I hadn't factored in the washing and drying time, but I'll know better next time. So far, I have washed on a separate cold wash and they've all come up perfectly clean and ready to go again. The t-tree drops to go in the mucky box is a nice touch and helps keep everything fresh smelling between washes. My only struggle with the move to reusable sanitary products was being able to find somewhere discrete to rinse pads when not at home, when I wasn’t able to do this I dropped the pad in my travel bag anyway and made sure to give it a really good soak, and some stain remover, as soon as possible and they’ve been fine.

Thursday, 20 June 2019  |  Charlotte

Well, I'm never going back to single use menstrual products. Ever. I bought these in a size 6-8 (I'm a really borderline 8-10) and although they said 4-6 on the underwear when they arrived, they fit perfectly - so definirely follow the advice and go a size down.
They do feel like bikini bottoms, but that's fine! They're not heavy in anyway, and in absolutely no way are they detectable under gym clothes, let alone jeans.

Leaks?! What leaks? I put these to the ultimate test: I wore one pair, without taking any spare, to work on my heaviest day. This meant I wore the pair from 6am until I got home and showered that night at 8.30pm. On my heaviest day. Absolutely no smell, absolutely no leak. Yes, by about 6.45pm they felt abit wet, but not really uncomfortable, I was just aware they needed changing. But I'd already gone over the recommended 12 hours by then anyway!

One thing i would say is don't wash these on a cold wash - I washed them separately in a cold wash halfway through my cycle (I didnt buy enough to cover my whole week as I was meant to be a test) and they did stain. When I put them through with the rest of y2k washing on a 30c wash, they came out good as new. But like others have said, they do take a while to dry. Not a problem in the summer, but as they don't tumble dry, you'd need a full set to get you through the week in the winter as they do take a couple days to air dry.

All in all, I recommend them to anyone who will listen! Comfortable, cheaper than competitors, do exactly what they promise to, and no more menstrual products going to landfill! Result!

I bought these for my daughter who is 13 and was finding pads awful and tampons impossible. She lives them! No leaks, no slipping or sticking or discomfort. Definitely follow the advice to size down. She's a 6-8 and the 4-6 fit perfectly. They wash well and dry fairly quickly. I'll definitely be buying here some more so that I don't have to be quite so on it with the wash cycle.

Great product, great price. The advice to size down is good. I'm a 16-18 usually but bought the 14-16 which fit perfectly. My periods are not mega heavy but I found I wanted to change them in the middle of the first day. After that one pair at night and one in the day worked fine. I only bought three pairs to try but I'll be buying more so I don't have to be quite so on top of the wash cycle. Best of all, I haven't thrown anything away. I will be recommending them to everyone I know!
