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!

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.

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
Wednesday, 22 November 2017  | 

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.

Sturdy, great design
Thursday, 1 November 2018  |  Victoria

The boxes are well made and sturdy. Like the colour coding of the kits with the essential oils. Ordered the pink box as a variation for reusable sanitary products. Love the design feature of the hooks with the net so you donít need to get your hands in the soaking solution.

Great first impressions
Thursday, 1 November 2018  |  Victoria

I have wanted to try non disposables for a long time to cut the amount of throwaway plastic I am using. I have used these for the first time and am really pleasantly surprised...they are beautifully soft and they clean up really well with no staining so far (I purchased a mucky box to soak them in before washing) They do move about slightly but will try tighter fitting underwear as suggested in other reviews...no leakages so far as theyíre super absorbent. Will definitely try the thinner cotton ones for towards the end of my period.

As someone who wears a "just in case" incontinence pad, I was getting really tired of buying pads, wearing them and putting them into landfill, especially when 99% of the time I hadn't needed to wear one anyway.
I bought some of these initially to wear around the house, at least I thought I will be reducing the amount I use. Now I wear them everywhere!

I ordered three pairs and I'm going back for more...... I suffer with mehorragia and it usually looks like a horror movie even with two maternity pads but these little beauts kept everything in overnight no stress!
Definitely buying more.
My only criticisism is that they sit quite low..... I'd like them to come up slightly higher for all out Bridget Jones comfort!

I bought the starter pack and was so impressed i bought some more day pads for me and my sister. Really well made, comfortable and so absorbant. They wash really well too. I shall never go back to disposables.

Sunday, 7 October 2018  |  Penny

Iíve only had these wipes for a week but as a busy childminder they have impacted well in my setting. As you can imagine lots of runny noses and bum changes needed attending to and I love the feel and smell of these. Iíve also asked the children and they prefer them too. Much nicer than wet wipes. Iíve even used them to wipe down hard surfaces in the kitchen. Iíll definitely be carrying on.

Fantastic value
Thursday, 20 September 2018  |  Nicki

I have tried cloth pads on and off over the years and never really took to them. I mostly use a cup but sometimes like the security of having a pad too. These are so comfortable and stay in place really well (but snug fitting pants are a must!). I think they are terrific value and my order came super fast.

We have been pleasantly surprised by how easy the switch has been and like that you can still use them out and about with the travel bags. You do need to be pretty disciplined and organised with keeping supplies fresh and would definitely suggest a second pack of wipes so you have plenty for wash rotation. We wash them on a 60 degree wash so they are totally clean and have no issue then using bum wipes for hands and face. Although there is the option to have white ones for hands and face and colours for the bum, comes down to personal preference, but they genuinely clean and fresh. We really started looking at this option because my youngest has really sore nappy rash from every wipe brand we've tried leading to us spending a small fortune on sudocream and other such products. Since using cloth wipes its been a miracle for his bum as its no longer red and sore. I love how usually 1 wipe does the job whereas you need to use some 5-6 packet wipes and we were going through them pack after pack with 2 boys! So bottom line buy them we wouldn't go back now having changed across.

Never looked back!!
Friday, 31 August 2018  |  Becky

I bought these around 18 months ago and they still look like new. I originally ran on night pads and liners which was fine. These cope with 'flooding' amazingly well, I have never had a leak. They haven't stained and they are not gross at all. I was sceptical to read that period pain can be reduced by switching from disposables but its true. My flow is a little lighter and doesn't last as long. I just chuck them in with the washing or with the nappies. I now have a few day pads for the last day, purely because they looked pretty and I'm slightly addicted. They are so soft and don't move around in my underwear even thought they're a shiney material. I use the liners every day just chucking them in the normal wash and they are still like new. Granted they're slightly more grey than white on top but I can deal with that. These are by far some of the cheapest CSP out there. I have tried slightly cheaper but these are made so much better. The quality is untouchable.
