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.
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!

Bamboo / Bamboo Charcoal facing upwards
Insert the pad into your knickers with the bamboo or bamboo charcoal face upwards. Close the poppers underneath the gusset of your knickers.
Firstly, I usually try to wear fairly tight fitting pants. If you usually keep your old, saggy. baggy pants which have really seen better days for that time of the month, time to invest in some new ones! Tighter pants will help a cloth pad stay in place and avoid slippage. Cotton knickers are best or cotton / lycra mix.
Turn around if you suffer from slippage
The soft outer Minky fabric has some grip - if it is inserted against the nap of the fabric. If you notice that your pad is slipping, turn it around 180 degrees, front to back.
Worth the money!I have used these for the last 3 months. I wont be going back to normal sanitary towels.They wash wellThey let your skin breathe- no sticky crunchy padsThe seem to stay in place overnight which is impressiveThe absiebency is impressive. Heavy flow not a problem for these padsWorth every penny

I have to overshare to leave a review... These are comfortable to wear, well made, wash well and dry extremely quickly.. a bargain in the sale. But I bought them for light urinary incontinence. Iím left feeling slightly damp and uncomfortable, Iím not entirely sure why, and being synthetic odor control after a whole day isnít great. HOWEVER as I have them I thought Iíd try them for my period and they are something else. The first time you try I recommended you rinse out by hand to see how much blood itís holding. I changed mine after a couple of hours assuming Iíd not bled much because I was so comfortable, boy was I wrong. These are amazing for blood. I rinse or soak in cold water so the stain doesnít set then wash at 40 degrees with my regular laundry even though this is not recommended. 4 not 5 stars because they are also marketed for incontinence.

I found this pad to be extremely effective, the absorbency is amazing for something so thin and is very comfortable to wear, which is the main reason for my trying reusable pads. The materials used are super soft and the pattern is lovely. Definitely converted to a reusable pads after trying this!
So much more absorbent than disposable sanitary pads, and more comfortable.I bought a couple to start with, but will definitely be getting more to 'top-up' the pants on my heavy days.
Bought these to try alongside the period pants. Amazing. Comfortable, like SO comfortable. Super easy to change and wash. Such a simple thing, why didnít I get these earlier?!
I brought these about a week ago and i love them, i feel so much better about not using the disposable ones aswell. I would recommend Thanks Cheeky wipes
Really cute, lovely patterns, and do the job as well as washing well. I keep these as spares because I use period pants nearly all the time. Nice to have in your handbag in case of emergencies.
At the start of my period I used these alongside the period pants,and if I'm honest it was probably a little bulky - however I'm not sure that this was entirely necessary,and I'm going to try them on their own (with normal pants!) next month. It's a very good tip that if you find it's slipping around,just turn it around and that seems to solve the problem. Overall they seem much more absorbant than a disposable, don't crinkle and rustle like a disposable, didn't sit smelly in the bin, and fold up nice and small for changing when out and about. They came up good as new again after washing (I soaked in a mucky box for a couple of days,then washed at 20,with an extra rinse,and no conditioner) - really pleased! Will be recommending to my friends!
Love these. They wash really well and are so comfortable to wear. I'm totally converted.
I bought these to try and im delighted with them. I bought them for mild incontinence and im feel much more confident when i go out and i honestly dont even notice im wearing them. Unlike others i have with satin backs these ones stay in place. Feeling lovely and fresh now.
