Bamboo / Minky: Leakproof Minkee outer, one layer microfibre, inner layer bamboo charcoal microfleece or bamboo terry
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.
Please note that this listing is for a SINGLE pad. Buy 5 or 10 to SAVE money (discount applied at checkout)
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!

Bamboo / Bamboo Charcoal facing upwards
Insert the pad into your knickers with the bamboo or bamboo charcoal face upwards. Close the poppers underneath the gusset of your knickers.
Firstly, I usually try to wear fairly tight fitting pants. If you usually keep your old, saggy. baggy pants which have really seen better days for that time of the month, time to invest in some new ones! Tighter pants will help a cloth pad stay in place and avoid slippage. Cotton knickers are best or cotton / lycra mix.
Turn around if you suffer from slippage
The soft outer Minky fabric has some grip - if it is inserted against the nap of the fabric. If you notice that your pad is slipping, turn it around 180 degrees, front to back.
After deciding to take the plunge in washable liners I opted for the Liners to trial alongside my Mooncup and for daily use. The liners arrived and are fantastic. Took a little getting use to as one way, the fabric slides, making the liner move, however, by simply turning it around, they stayed still! A wonderful product and helping our planet too! Cannot recommend enough!

I first tried these at home just in case before wearing them to work. My first time out with them, I carried a ton of single use ones as well. Never needed one. Cloth ones are much more comfortable and environmentally friendly that I never consider to go back. However, my periods are quite light, you might like to try it at home first to see how it will work for you.
Very soft and comfortable.
Initially I bought the Cotton Cloth Ultrapads and I was so disappointed with them, they just didnít suit me. I hated the fabric and the shape of them. But Iíd washed them, as per instructions and tried one so couldnít return them and Iíd bought ten liners & ten day pads. However, I really wanted to get along with these so I tried the bamboo & minky ones, only buying five to start with, and this time I wasnít disappointed. The bamboo & minky ones, well I love love love them, especially the butterfly pattern, will definitely buy more levels f these, Iíve already ordered more liners today and will buy more soon.
These cloth pads are brilliant. Super soft, so comfy (I forget that Iím wearing them!!), and they do their job brilliantly. No more chemicals/bleach touching my delicate lady area, and no more plastic going to landfill! Really easy to care for, and they still look and feel as good as new after many uses. Highly recommend. Customer services are also great if you need to contact them (one pad was sent in the wrong print to what Iíd ordered - they sent a replacement AND let me keep the other one anyway!)Canít recommend Cheeky Wipes highly enough!
I love my new reusable panty liners! They are good quality, well made liners that will last for years. With the added bonus of making both me and mother earth feel good about less waste. I've knocked a star off because it took longer than expected to dispatch my order, so much so I was on the verge of contacting Cheeky Wipes thinking they had forgotten aboute.

I've been thinking for a while I need to stop using disposable pads and liners and found these comfortable, easy to clean with a cold water rinse through, soak in the mucky box with a few drops of oil, then machine wash. They've come up really clean. I'm also so pleased with putting no period related rubbish in the bin.
Iím finding these great so far. They are very comfortable to wear. I find the liner can slip back on my underwear though if Iím walking etc but I would still repurchase the product.
I wish I had found out about these washable pads and period pants sooner. I used the washable pads in the day and the period pants at night. They are so much more comfortable than disposable pads, they don't give you that plasticky, sweaty feeling. They feel so much drier and they don't smell as bad either.. It was so nice not having to wear a pad in bed. My period felt altogether less stressfull. Thank you

I ordered these to finish my stash so I am covered for a whole length of a period in case I don't have chance to wash them! I went for the charcoal pads as I feel these actually wash better than the bamboo. I was sceptical when I first tried them as they're literally fleece fabric and I didn't think they'd be anywhere near absorbent enough, but I was totally wrong! Even from new, without washing they were absorbent (needs must this time!) One thing I do regret however...I wish i had ordered a different pattern for the 2 different types of pads I ordered! The day pads and panty liners are quite similar size and thickness so unless you compare them side by side it's hard to tell which one is which! Doh!
