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 product
Thursday, 28 June 2018  | 

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.

Such a lovely pattern but not got it quite right
Friday, 16 March 2018  | 

I absolutely love the look and feel of these reusable pads but it kept moving throughout the time I was wearing it. I think it is because the pad doesn't stick to the inside of the knickers. The popper is a great idea but it then just slides up and down the knickers when I'm walking around! I tried putting it on the smaller popper setting in the hope it would fit more snugly but it still moved and so caused leaking.

Response:

Hi Veronica, 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.

Definitely buy again! Was worried about leakage and movement but pleasantly surprised at how much they soak and how comfortable they were. And they washed soo easily as well and dried quickly.

Good quality

I've only recently begun using reusable towels, I'm beginning to build up a collection so I don't have to wash what I have every other day. This is the second brand that I have brought, and although I have not yet used the rainbow 0r penguin pattern towels that I have brought it is clear they are going to be comfortable, I can't wait to try them out!
Also there was prompt delivery as well.

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

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!

Fantastic
Saturday, 17 June 2017  | 

I have T1 diabetes so I get used to get thrush pretty much all the time. Since switching to reusable towels about a year ago I haven't had thrush at all. They also leek much less than ordinary towels and they're just really comfy. I've tried a few brands and cheeky mama are the best I've tried - I love the soft material and nice ;patterns - they make me smile

Iíve only been using these a short time but find them a great alternative to cotton wool pads. I use them with my own regular products and they do a fab job. Once used, I pop them into a netting bag to sling them all in the wash together. I donít yet know how these wipes stand up to regular washing, but so far they wash up well and Iím very happy with my purchase!

Fab
Monday, 25 June 2018  |  Jennifer

Fab, and generous on sizing, so I should have opted for smaller. I ordered size 12.
Didn't leak, even when I made a massive mistake in the night and put my washable pad in the wrong way up! (Facepalm)
Lovely and soft, and don't rustle, and look like period pants. Not overly restrictive like some of the other ones out there. ( I have tried a few!)
Fab. Different colours would be great.

I decided not to use my moon cup this month, so I could give the cloth sani pads a proper try out, and I was so impressed I really wish I'd given them a go sooner!

I realised pretty quickly, that if I put the pads in with the nap (the direction of the fuzz on the velour) laying so the smooth goes backwards, they do wriggle back a bit and I ended up getting leaks at the front; but once I'd figured that I've out and started putting them in the other way around, so the smooth direction was going forwards, I had no problems at all.

They were significantly less gross than I was expecting, especially given how moon cups can leave you looking like you've been sacrificing small rodents to Mother Nature! They are surprisingly absorbent, and I actually found I had less period pain or other PMS symptoms than usual. Cleaning them was a breeze, and for the first time ever I am actually slightly looking forward to my next visit from the period fairy, so I can use them again! Full marks, Cheeky Wipes!!

Monday, 14 May 2018  |  Victoria

I really was sceptical about using reusable wipes.... well I didnít need to be....
These wipes are honestly just lovely, really good quality, cleans my child soooo much better than a wet wipe, smells amazing and so much more refreshing. My child doesnít have a massive screaming fit now when been cleaned and I use them for her, for us and for certain things in the house ect
Stayed in perfect condition after washing and tumble drying them, also I purchased the extra pouch to take the wipes out and About,
The pouch is also fantastic keeps the wipes perfectly and folds up lovely in your bag and does not make your bag wet at all!! Even the oil itself is really good quality, I would 100% recommend this product and this company, ordering and delivery was also very easy and efficient and I must say I am certainly not a easy person to please at all 🙈 Thankyou Iím so happy with my purchase

Pretty pink perfection
Wednesday, 9 May 2018  |  Gillian

Great design , the cute pink waterproof bag sits discreetly in the bathroom disguised as a toilet bag until the dreaded " bad week !" when it springs into action - no actually it's no big deal , I can't think of anything at all making them harder to use than the annoying sticky things that wash up disgustingly on our local beach ! .
It's not yucky , the oils smell lovely and the huge bonus for me personally is the respite from evil thrush !
Infact I used to purchase "That proprietary cream " so often that I could use my chemist loyalty card points to buy myself perfume every few months !
Not that I'm complaining - it's a simple swap that has made life better and although it's an initial outlay it saves money in the long run .
You too can smile smuggly in the supermarket as you sail past the aisle of pricey ,plasticky , winged things that you no longer need .

Sanitary pads kit
Sunday, 29 April 2018  |  Melissa

These pads are so great. Recently I've been struggling with disposables and tampons plus hate the waste and generally dreading my period more and more as disposable protection caused soreness and thrush. Plus I have a young daughter and I felt I needed to find an environmentally friendly and nicer sanitary protection to be a good role model for her. I often thought if there were washable sanitary pads as I used washable nappies for all my children so I was pleased to find these. They are so comfortable and easy to use plus wash well and only need a cold wash. I love them and no one in my household commented on the tub in the bathroom. I've used them out the house too and found changing them so easy as have the bag provided to take used pads home. Plus my daughter loves them and thinks all the designs are so pretty and soft and so much nicer for me than 'those boring white ones' Highly recommend. This period I didn't feel yucky and had no unpleasant bin to empty or having to use yucky public toilet bins and the washing n drying was easy. I'm mid forties and still think the money paid for these is worth it after just one month of use! Wish I'd bought them years ago.

I came across Cheeky Wipes when looking for an alternative to big brand sanitary protection, and although I havenít purchased the cotton Cheeky Mama Pads - yet - I did go for the Cheeky Bum Wipes Full Kit with extra rainbow cotton wipes and I am so so glad I did. Yes, the intial layout may seem a bit on the pricey side, but I can absolutely confirm that they are worth every single penny, and of course, within a few months theyíve practically paid for themselves anyway, not to mention that youíre reducing the amount of plastic going in the bin by quite a lot.

I opted for the organic rainbow cotton wipes after reading the handy helpful guide Ďwhich fabric is best for cloth baby wipes?í I absolutely love them, they have been washed and washed and washed and are still incredibly soft and so far have kept their colour. They are gentle on Bubsí skin, and I very rarely use more than one wipe per change, occasionally needing two for those extra big poos (where *do* they come from?)! As with the usual baby wipes, I use these for anything and everything, nappy changes, feeding time, a quick wipe down when out and about, wiping food from clothes, floors and furniture etc., so they have proved to be just as versatile and useful.

As for washing, I donít find Iím doing any more washing than I was beforehand, I have two teenage boys who are shower mad so I just chuck the wipes in with our towels every 3/4 days or so on a 60 degree wash. They wash well and havenít stained at all, not even from the dreaded tomatoey pasta sauces!

Hubby is converted too and we are now talking about buying the ĎToilet Paper Alternative Wipesí (much to our teensí displeasure 🤣 - theyíll come round) and I have already filled my basket with the ĎCheeky Mama Cloth Sanitary Pad Full kití ready for next pay day.

If you are reading this review umming and ahhing over whether or not to take the plunge, do it. You wonít regret it.

Everything you need
Tuesday, 3 April 2018  |  Rebecca

Great quality items, the tub is easy to operate with one hand and the little tabs to hook the wash bag on are genius! The little wash bag is a perfect size too and washes out clean. The pads are wonderful, it is a bit strange at first as you can feel the poppers when you sit down but that is comfort to make you remember you did put a pad on because they do feel more like fabric than a disposable pad. Normally I will have a couple of small leaks if Iíve not been sat upright or lying on my side in bed but none with these as even the wings will absorb too. The little oil is a lovely smell too which also helps when the washing and emptying is needed. Would definitely recommend.
