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!

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
Tuesday, 7 August 2018  | 

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.

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.

Great addition to my reusable period kit.
Monday, 18 March 2019  |  Sheryl

They are great. They hold a good amount and have never leaked. They are generously sized so go down a size rather than up. They are really comfortable and make me feel very secure during my period. I also wear them for the just in case days as they are more comfortable than reusable panty liners. I bought one pair initially then a three pack as I was so happy with the first pair. I tend to use tjese rather than pads now.

So amazing

After struggling with cotton wool balls I'll never look back having started using this kit a few days ago.
Bamboo terry is so soft on skin yet super effective at cleaning.
Customer service out of this world.
I thought it was a bit pricey but it's so worth it. No wonder this brand has commandeered the market!

Perfect and very impressed so far
Tuesday, 26 February 2019  |  Caroline

I am cautious about my period and always wear a pad that I change twice daily a few days before I'm due. No longer needed and I'm currently day 3 in so through the worst of my period. I usually double up with a pad and tampon on heavy days but some times still end up leaking. The protection pad is so big no stains in the bed this month and I'm about a size 18-20 and the 16-18 fit perfectly.

Never going back!
Monday, 25 February 2019  |  Ziggi

So comfy and feels so ďnormalĒ! Never any moisture or residue in the underwear. When I did have to wear a towel (all pairs of knickers in the wash) it was the most artificial and weird feeling! I feel so much cleaner and fresher using the pants and so much more comfortable and confident. Just ordered another 3 pairs in the other style!

So comfy!!
Saturday, 16 February 2019  |  Rachel

So I wore these for the first time last night; the first night of my period which is my super heavy night....

Firstly, it felt SO comfy to go to bed without any pads on at all!
(I switched to washable pads about 2 years ago, which was already a huge improvement on the plasticy disposable ones, but I still ended up doubling up on this night of my period just to get the length to cover all the way back far enough to stop any leakages).

The absorbent area on these goes all the way to the waistline at the back on these so complete coverages. No leaks, even coped with clots, all night, 8 hours in total. These are a game changer!!

I'm staying overnight at a friend's house this evening and normally I might be worried about leaks, but I've packed my second pair and know there's nothing to worry about.

Also, excellent customer service AS ALWAYS when I had a query about my order.

Thank you!!

Bikini Period Pants
Thursday, 14 February 2019  |  Jennifer

These bikini style period pants have been great. True to size. I use them as a back up for my menstrual cup. Great for the gym as I wanted a back up more discreet than my cloth pads. You wouldnít even know these werenít normal pants. Only a 4 star as I feel the actual absorption part should come right up the front, so I donít believe these would be much use for front bleeders (I wouldnít be able to use them as my only sanitary protection) I also feel that these would only be suitable for light-medium flow periods due to how thin the protection is. I have a very very heavy flow, so I use a very long, thick cloth pads as back up for night time and these pants have held it in place perfectly.

It's fair to say I was a bit of a skeptic, and a late comer to these - I have a 3yr old and a 1yr old and was happy with my biodegrable wipes, but on the basis they come wrapped in plastic I thought I'd give cheeky wipes a go as part of a drive to reduce my single use plastics.

I am super happy with the product (in my case the towelling starter set) and have made everyone who comes to my house smell them (!!) but in the interests of balance here are the pros & cons for me!

Cons;
It takes a bit of thinking to work out where to keep them to have them to hand when you need them
I can see that they could become addictive and I may end up buying lots more!!

Pros;
Really easy to use, and really effective - whether on bums or faces
Straightforward to wash & dry (since I am doing this most days anyway)
Amazing smelling essential oils - no unpleasant smells AT ALL from the mucky box
I purchased them with £10 off in the sale - represents real value for money at this price point
Come up clean following a wash - no alarming staining (yet)

So comfy you forget you're wearing them

I ordered the 10-12 which is my usual size and they fit perfectly, just like normal underwear. So much more comfortable than wearing a pad and so good to know I won't be sending pads to landfill every month.

Another fantastic product
Friday, 1 February 2019  |  Jessica

The Bikini Sports Style pants are just brilliant. I ordered a size smaller and they fit perfectly. They feel great and absolutely do what they should. I now own 6 pairs of pants and a mixed selection of the pads - this has been a period game changer! Thank you guys at cheeky wipes
