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
Wednesday, 29 March 2017  | 

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.

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.

Great product!
Monday, 10 September 2018  |  Claire

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.

I 🖤 period pants
Friday, 31 August 2018  |  Bess

Where have period pants been my whole life? How have I ever survived without them? Oh yes, know, by worrying about leakage, the world’s environment and my internal environment. Not any more thanks to these beauties. There was no leakage, they’re kind to the environment and kind to me too. Just one thing I’d like, and that’s a few different colours please, including nude. Thanks 😊.

Feeling at peace with reusable wipes!
Thursday, 30 August 2018  |  Alice

I have been feeling guilty. I'm on my second child and adding to landfill like there's no tomorrow. My husband would use baby wipes to clean the child... car... floor... but I just did not like the idea of poo covered wipes being reusable. However, after finding cheeky wipes via instagram, reading reviews and watching videos I thought why not, it doesn't seem that difficult to reduce m! And it's not! I got the all in one kit, rainbow wipes (so I couldn't see the poo) with extra microfiber ones for the dinner table. Filled up the boxes with a bit of help from videos to work out where to fill the water to and which oils to use where (tea tree is the mucky one if you can't guess) and I was away! Absolutely brilliant, it's true that I've only used one wipe per dirty nappy and it's actually now quite a calming activity with the smell of lavender and chamomile. The panic I had over dealing with soiled fabric is not an issue - they just get popped in the mucky box and then easily into the washing machine using the bag. I've taken them out and about with no issue and have introduced them to my little one's nursery. One microfibre wipe has taken over from multiples of baby wipes at the dinner table and I'm so pleased I switched. Who knows, if there's a third child I might even think about reusable nappies.

Really surprised!!
Thursday, 23 August 2018  |  Carly

I purchased the all in one re usable baby wipes kit as I had seen it advertised on facebook. I've always used baby wipes for convenience, but sometimes i feel that I should be doing more for the environment so I took the plunge and bought washable ones. I was a little unsure at first. The kit takes moments to set up and then it is ready to use. Strangely , I couldn't wait for my son to have a poo so I could really test them out!. Well i didnt have to wait long. It only took one wipe to thoroughly clean a poo explosion!. I couldn't believe it. Even my husband was surprised. I've had the wipe kit for nearly 2 weeks now and I won't be going back to disposables. I've washed them and they have come out lovely. I change the water in the fresh tub every 2 days to freshen them up and wash the mucky ones in dettol laundry cleanser on a 30 or 60 wash. I even took them out on a trip for the first time and the travel bags are so easy to use. My little one is always lovely and clean. I will be recommending to them to everyone and will be buying more re usable products from cheeky wipes in the future!

So much easier than disposable wipes
Thursday, 23 August 2018  |  Sarah

Even my husband (who is all about convenience) was totally sold on using these wipes after just one use of them. So much easier than messing about trying to get disposable wipes out of their packet. Plus you only like need to use 1 or 2 per dirty nappy (when you would normally need 5 or 6 wipes).

Surprisingly not gross
Monday, 30 July 2018  |  Fiona

The idea of reusable loo roll was a bit of an uneasy decision, but I wanted to try it. I’ve seen sewage treatment plants and blocked drains frequently through my job, so could certainly see the positives of making such a change.
I have to say that I love it. It’s a much cleaner feeling than traditional loo roll, and the bag system is great inside the mucky box. I have invested in some laundry sanitiser to kill any bacteria that will be growing in the box. This has addressed all of my concerns, and I actually dislike having to use normal toilet paper when I’m out now. Thank you for helping me with this change - I love it! I do have to say that I haven’t felt confident to tell anyone yet though - I’m not sure a lot of people would be ready to accept such a change...

Best Pants EVER!!!
Sunday, 29 July 2018  |  Olivia

I got these as I love the cloth pads Cheeky Wipes do. They are so comfortable and do not leak at all even on a heavy day. I’m not a small girl definitely bigger than a 16 and the 16/18 fitted me nicely. I wish I’d bought more. So nice to not have to technically wear anything at that time. They aren’t very thick at all but are so absorbent like magic. I would say only slightly thicker than your average cotton pants. Thinner than regular pads or cloth pads. I’ll definitely be stocking up.
