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.

Tight Pants

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.


  • Rinse them in cold water when you change them and then soak in cold water until you are ready to wash them​.
  • Wash at 20c or 30c on a longer cycle, warm washing sets blood stains and can damage your pads.

Absorbent and comfy but they tend to move forward so thatís not ideal. Not sure Iíd be brave enough to wear them out of the house but time will tell!

Excellent product - very happy
Tuesday, 3 September 2019  | 

I am so pleased with my latest purchase, I'd been a bit unsure about buying reusable pads online but Cheeky Wipes had so much information about the materials used and how to take care of the products etc also the prices seem reasonable compared with other sites.
First impressions were great, they arrived speedily and were package in a sturdy paper envelope, no unnecessary plastic!
The pad is comfortable to wear and very soft. The quality of the fabric and pad itself is very good indeed.
They are well absorbent and the design on the outside is so cute.
All round just a really handy product.
I ordered one day and one night pad to try out and will definitely be ordering more. I can't ever see myself going back to using disposables!!

How did I live without them?
Sunday, 11 August 2019  | 

These are the best thing I ever did for my period!
They are comfortable and I feel secure and safe wearing them. Iím not worried about leaks ever! Once you have got used to them they are amazing. I always suffered with Thrush every period when I used disposable towels. I havenít had that problem with these. I recommend them to everyone! I feel great that Iím not throwing away any rubbish and plastic every month too.

This is the first time I have used cloth sanitary pads and all I can say is why have I not used them before! They are so much more absorbent than disposable pads and I felt clean all of the time with no smells.

Easy to use

I found the charcoal ones dry quicker the the bamboo. I am going to try the cotton ones next time.
I don't normally use pads with wings so wasn't sure if they wound be ok but they felt comfortable.

Great pads and more absorbent than expected
Thursday, 16 May 2019  | 

I'm a new convert to washable pads and have found these day pads great. Easy to rinse out with cold water, soak in the mucky box with a few drops of oil then machine wash on 30. No stains at all. Brilliant!

Ordered the bamboo rather than the charcoal one's by accident as I didn't want any stains however these have washed really good and no signs of stains. Lovely prints and comfortable product.

Brilliant! But....
Sunday, 14 April 2019  | 

I do absolutely love these! Iíve never had such a comfortable period 😂 However, buying tight underwear didnít stop these from moving around unfortunately, so instead I got hold of some secure safety pins and have been using them with those! Sounds a little odd, but it works and you canít even notice that itís there!
