Cheeky Mama Cloth Sanitary Pads from Cheeky Wipes - for normal flow

Size: 22cm x 7cm (approx.) suitable for most days of your period, or general incontinence.

Bamboo / Minky: Leakproof Minkee outer, two layers microfibre, inner layer bamboo charcoal microfleece or bamboo terry

Not sure which pad to choose? See our blog post for more details....

Please note that this listing is for a SINGLE pad, multipacks are available separately.

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

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!

Why not add some of our reusable intimate wipes to your order and / or a wetbag for carrying clean and dirty pads / wipes? You can also buy the pads in packs of 5 or 10 , alternatively take a look at our Cheeky Mama Sanitary Pad kits and SAVE money!

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!

Very comfy material, washes well on 30 degrees (with a little stain remover to get it back to white), dries fast so I can use it again the same day or next. Only thing is it does move around a little, but otherwise perfect.

Great absorbency for nights and days, super comfy too.
I find that if you have them on the loosest button to spread them out, but wear very tight pants like swim shorts, it stops them slipping at all.

First time user of reusable
Thursday, 21 February 2019  | 

I only bought one pad to try out as this is my first time trying, I am a very sensitive person and normal sanitary items leave me irritated and uncomfortable. I wore this the first time yesterday and itís VERY comfortable, I donít feel like it irritates me it fits to me very well. Only down side is I find it rather bulky, although Iím not sure if thatís the size I picked or not. But I can live with a little bulkier for a comfy TOM!

Really comfy, thin yet absorbent, no sweaty smell, not irritating like disposable pads, easy to care for. Just rinse out and fold up discreetly by the washing basket in bathroom until ready to wash. No problem with slipping but do wear with snug pants. This guy was fine to wear even at night with no leaks. Will be ordering more.

A great way to reduce your plastic use.

I tried washable sanitary pads 15 years ago but found they just didnít keep me dry. These Cheekywipes pads are a whole different thing! I bought two to try and now Iíve ordered another ten; I wonít be going back to disposable pads. Theyíre comfortable, absorbent and donít slide around (as long as you follow the advice about the nap on the back). Highly recommended x

Absolutely Amazing

I ordered these on Wednesday to try out this brand as I have not got on with a lot of other brands. They arrived by the Saturday (a week or so quicker than what it stated) and they are so lovely. I have found they don't move around at all and they are lovely and absorbent which is exactly what I needed.

I couldn't wait to use my new pads and they were great and no leakage. They are brilliant quality and fold up really small which is great. Some of the more stained ones I had to wash twice, but they have now come out clean. A few teething problems in case it helps anyone else - I had a little trouble with the type of underwear I could use them with. I couldn't wear them with a high leg brief as the tabs and poppers were too tight and it started folding the pad, so you need some knickers with a slimmer back to them. I have been since advised to try a bikini style brief which I'm going to try next month. I had slight slippage with these, but I'm sure once I've figured out the direction of the minky with the correct underwear it will be fine. The only thing I could suggest would be slightly wider tabs, but then that would mean more poppers for width adjustment. But overall a great product hence the 5 stars.

Very impressed. Itís super soft and comfortable to wear, and absorbs everything perfectly. I will definitely be getting more. The only thing is to wear tight underwear so that it doesnít slide forwards or backwards.

Mama cloth sanitary pads
Tuesday, 23 April 2019  |  Sophie

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!!!!

Tuesday, 23 April 2019  |  Sophie

Ok so I was super sceptical of these, HOWEVER after yet another night of flooding the bed I thought id invest in a pair and try them...ÖÖ they are AMAZING, I used them with a night pad and honestly they are super comfortable, I didn't leak through and they washed and dried ready for the next night. I love them so much I've just ordered a 3 pack. I'm telling everyone about them as they have honestly made such a difference to my life. Some things I see people asking about on here that I can answer
1) they don't smell at all, in fact I'm far more conscious when I have to wear a horrible sweaty plastic sanitary pad *yuk*
2) They don't leak, not even a tiny bit and just feel like super comfy knickers
3) if like me you have had to spend years washing out knickers in the sink anyway these wash and clean like a dream.

Amazing product
Tuesday, 23 April 2019  |  Marta

This is the best invention ever made! I finally donít feel guilty in polluting the world with ladies tampons the panties are extremely comfortable, I really donít feel like I am on my period and I donít get any rush or irritation due to sanitary pads, which used to bother my skin a lot! I am a size 8 and I ordered 4/6 thanks to other clients reviews as the size is a bit misleading, so always order a size down from your actual size

My favourite purchase. They are so much more efficient than wet wipes, never had to use more than two even with the biggest nappy explosion. Canít recommend them to everyone enough.

Absorbent and easier to manage than you would expect
Saturday, 20 April 2019  |  Sharon

Review of bamboo charcoal pads.

I bought these to try to address cystitis during and after a period. I use a Mooncup with a pad.

The most important thing about using these pads is ensuring your pad is the right way round. If you get it the wrong way it slips back and gets very uncomfortable. I find putting the pad gusset side down on your knee is the most reliable method (except for two of the liners, where the knap of the fabric is sideways). Annoyingly there is no convention as to which wing the label is on, which would have been helpful.

The pads are significantly more absorbent than disposables. You need to change them far less often and donít feel wet if your flow is heavy.

The pads are easy to rinse out and just sit in the water/tea tree oil solution until you are ready to wash them. Incidentally, thatís a much more pleasant aroma in your bathroom than used pads in a bin.

I did find I needed to put them in the wash every day or I would run out of day pads. This leads to loads of just sanitary pads if you donít have much laundry. I found it was difficult to put a small enough dose of powder in for a wash of just 3-4 pads or you get a lot of suds (I am down to half a teaspoon of powder). Itís also important to ensure you use non-bio powder (better for natural fibres) and your wash program has a sufficient number of rinse cycles.

Overall I would recommend these pads but would say it is probably desirable to get another night pad and a couple more day pads to cut down on the washing a bit. I took a star off for the liners with the crossways knap that causes rotation.

Great for bladder weakness too
Monday, 15 April 2019  |  Katie

Iíve been suffering with bladder issues since having chemo for breast cancer and been having to use tenna style pads to avoid frequent knicker and trouser changes etc. But itís been bugging me that while Iím using reusable wipes and nappies on my baby Iím binning non recyclable pads every single day for myself not just at period time.

So I contacted Cheeky Wipes to ask if these sanitary pads would be any good for bladder weakness and they said yes. Eventually I took the plunge and ordered the kit. Iíve been using them for just over a week and they are brilliant.

The pads are so much more comfortable. They donít rub or cause chafing and I donít feel like theyíre upsetting my natural system down there risking thrush as I did with the disposable pads. And of course so much more environmentally friendly.

Iím currently due baby no.2 anytime so Iíll be interested to see how well they perform and wash clean as actual sanitary pads when my period returns.

So comfortable and no leaks
Sunday, 14 April 2019  |  Ashling

The material is soft and makes the pants really comfortable to wear, I wore on my heaviest day and they coped fine, I even went running in them and it wasnít a problem. I only have one pair at the minute but I will definitely be buying more.

Perfect
Saturday, 13 April 2019  |  Lydia

So happy with this product. Had been wanting to get some period pants for a while but everywhere else I looked they were too pricey. Then found cheeky wipes and you can get 3 pairs for the same price as 1 from somewhere else. Was so happy with the quality; they're so comfortable, look great and are so absorbent. Definitely would recommend!

Great product
Saturday, 13 April 2019  |  Charlotte

I have both styles of period pants from cheeky wipes, I bought the lace top ones initially then after being really pleased with them bought the bikini style.

Personally, I prefer the lace top ones simply because thereís more coverage should you have a spillage. The lace top have full coverage back to front, whereas the sport style has coverage all up the back and some up the front; if the front coverage was just two inches longer then these would be just as good as the lace top ones (for me); if youíre a Ďfront bleederí Iíd recommend the lace top. Iíve decided that this style will be better for me in the last few days of my period, when it isnít as heavy.

Other than that, the quality is excellent, style is lovely, fit is true to size. I read a review which said that they come up big so to size down however I bought 12-14 and they are just right. I wear both pants alone, with no other protection, my periods are a pretty standard flow and Iíve never leaked, they are so comfortable and donít feel wet/ sticky at all! These pants are so easy and have changed my period experiences massively, I love them and tell everyone about them! Thank you Cheeky Wipes!

Relief....
Sunday, 7 April 2019  |  Karen

So glad to have found these beauties. It's been bothering for me so long about my usage of cotton pads which were as vegan as I could get them. No longer do I have to worry. Only had them for 2 weeks and already can't imagine life without them. They work with all my usual cleansers and are gentle enough round my eyes without worry. I washed them all first before I used them too so they were very plumptious and soft. Yay cheeky wipes - thanks for helping me with my guilt.
