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!

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

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!

Mixed feelings.

I purchased these in the sale to use as panty liners. I initially thought they were very comfortable but they move and bunch up. I did feel very fresh all day and they wash and tumble dry well.

No more plastic-y pads
Tuesday, 23 January 2018  | 

First of all, I had really gotten tired of wearing uncomfortable disposable pads and knew that once I tried cloth pads I wouldn't look back.
I've tried two different brands so far- the other brand's pads are "shaped" and definitely fit and stay in place better. These ones, however, win with respect to comfort (how it feels against my skin) and absorbancy. These could definitely be improved by being contoured (narrower in the middle) to match the shape of your pants) but I am still happy with them.

Day Pads

Very comfortable to wear, easy to wash and dry quickly. The smaller size does not move too much but the slightly bigger ones tend to slide backwards. I do need the extra length but they do not always do the job.

Day pads - wish I'd tried these years ago! Perfect.
Tuesday, 20 September 2016  | 

Like a lot of ladies, I came around to the idea of cloth sanitary pads after having great success cloth nappying my baby. I only wish I'd tried these years ago - they are superior to disposable pads in just about every way!

Since having a baby I've found tampons very uncomfortable so I started using pads much more, but couldn't stand throwing so much rubbish in the bin. As well as saving on waste, there are several other nice features:
1) Comfortable... They are not just 'okay', these pads are actively much more pleasant to wear than disposables. Soft and comforting! No more scratchy crinkly plasticky feeling.
2) Absorption... They absorb much faster and basically better than disposables.
3) Exercise... They stay put (for moderate levels of exercise), and don't get sticky/gross or disintegrate like disposables.
4) Fit... Although they are bulkier than disposables, it doesn't make any more difference to what I can wear.
5) Look nice... I got the purple minky and they are very pretty

The only downside is of course the washing procedure: you have to be more careful than with cloth nappies because hot treatment (and some chemicals) will permanently set blood so you can't just chuck them in with your normal laundry. I've been hand washing them and trying different soaps, funnily enough a normal bar of Simple soap worked better than either bio or non-bio laundry liquid for me.

I'll be recommending them to anyone who will listen!

Give it a go – you might surprise yourself
Monday, 11 April 2016  | 

"When I first researched cloth nappies – before the birth of my first baby – I did happen upon the subject of cloth sanitary wear… and I was (to be quite honest) completely shocked and quite scared by the concept. Cloth nappies, I was completely on board with – I knew I would make those happen – I was completely, and totally committed to avoiding landfill and reducing the impact of my procreation on the planet in this way. But cloth sanitary towels…? Sponge tampons…? No way! Some people just take this eco thing too far!

So I cloth-bummed my first… then discovered used reusable wipes… then I cloth-bummed my second. Then one day I watched a friend use a whole roll of kitchen towel to (kindly!) mop up a tub of yogurt I’d dropped and was weeping over in my newborn-owner-wretched state – and I thought to myself what a waste! That was the last roll I bought. So, you see, I gradually slipped into a more reusable lifestyle.

When introduction of solids was underway enough with my second for my periods to return I was suddenly conscious of the waste and the chemicals. Did I really want my bits (bits which brought my beloved babies into this world after all) to be in such very close contact with plastic and goodness- knows-what? My wolf-pack of mamas had whispered about moon-cups – but I wasn’t ready for that. Then the subject of CSP came up again. And this time I was ok with it. Not completely ok – the thought of soaking and rinsing make me feel squeamish – but okay enough to try it.

What a revelation! All this time I’d been buying into products that promised to be ‘cotton fresh’ or to contain ‘extract of silk’… it seems like such a no-brainer now – why not just cut out the middleman and actually have fabric next to your skin instead of plastic profit pushing products posing as such! I’m not joking. ALL the things you don’t like about sanitary towels – the sweat, the less-than-fresh smell that makes you want to shower every two seconds – the itchy feelings – even the visual horror of seeing your own blood on a bleached white paper – they’re not products of your period – they are products of your products! And they make you want to change pad quicker… Now why might a giant moneymaking industry want to make you do that?

With cloth I feel safer – it’s very reassuring to have something a bit more noticeable down there. They are not so bulky that you’d notice them though – or that I’d change my outfit to accommodate them. The charcoal top of my chosen pads mean that primal alarm bells are not set off when I catch sight of it when I pop to the loo, causing me to change it every single visit, regardless of time used. And the feeling of the product – they are so soft! They feel like a luxury. The colours are really gorgeous.

With cloth I own my period – it does not own me. I get to use these lovely pads and I am self-sufficient. I never again will have to drag myself off to the shop, cramps impeding my journey, to hand over my vaguely embarrassing purchase to the spotty Saturday boy to scan before I can carry on with my day. I thought reducing environmental impact would be my main motivation here – but it’s not – it’s much more than that. I am a complete cloth convert (and a bit of a bore if you get me on the subject!) Give it a go – you might surprise yourself. Thanks Cheeky Wipes!"

Great product and service.
Monday, 7 March 2016  | 

I normally use a mooncup for my monthly period which has severved me very well but I sometimes suffer from random bleeds so permanently wear sanitary pads which is just so wasteful. I was recommended Cheeky Mama's by a friend and am so impressed. The pad is soft, comfortable, slim and very absorbant. I had no leaks even after going horse riding and the pad didn't scrunch up or move. I'm definitely going to buy more and recommend them to friends.

Cheeky wipes removal kit
Sunday, 22 July 2018  |  Samantha

I was sceptical on how effective this product would be... I have used facial wipes forever but was conscious of the environmental and chemical impact. I was pleasantly surprised by how amazing the product is and how natural the concept is. Well done, I'm converted. There's not even a tiny residue of mascara left the following morning! My eyes feel so soothed also!

Functionality:

These pads are great - at my heaviest overnight bleeding the pad will fill, but have never leaked during a period. It feels safe knowing I won't wake up needing to hop straight in the shower!

I originally got these for postpartum bleeding and they were the perfect absorbancy. Didn't leak once bar two tiny spots on the bedsheets. Wearing them overnight they were soaked by the morning but still working. I gave birth at 29 weeks though, so I don't know if that affects how heavy the flow is.

Rinsing them out in cold water just after a change I've found is the best way to go - they wash white and end up softer that way. Had a busy day one day and didn't rinse one or 2 out, put them straight in a wet bag - they have stained to a yellowy brown, but still work the same.

Comfort

I've been wearing these during the day too on heavier periods just in case and I find they rarely move around and are far more comfortable than their disposable cousins. I forget I'm wearing these a lot of the time

I’ve 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 don’t yet know how these wipes stand up to regular washing, but so far they wash up well and I’m very happy with my purchase!

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.

Wish I'd tried these sooner
Tuesday, 22 May 2018  |  Helen

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!!

I really was sceptical about using reusable wipes.... well I didn’t 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 doesn’t 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 I’m 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.
