Cheeky Pants Cloth Sanitary Pads from Cheeky Wipes - for light flow
Size: 19cm x 7cm (approx.) suitable for light days of your period or mild incontinence
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 Pants 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.
I love this product.Its not something people talk about but I discharge is a thing. Before I found these, I was very uncomfortable, having damp pants all day, everyday. Now, I just pop in a pad a day and chuck them in my washing machine with my regular wash.The fleece is lovely and soft, and it wicks away any damp. Added bonus is you just clip them on the line, no pegs needed! I'm so much happier day to day as I feel much more comfortable!

Very robust and well madeMoves around a bit but what can you expect when itís not stickyAbsolutely delighted to have moved to sustainable liners
I brought the flamingo-go charcoal topped panty liners. I find them absorbent, so soft & comfortable to wear they stay in place & wash really well. I have been wearing & washing them so much over the last 3 months that I've just ordered some more today. So I've got another weeks worth on the way with some lovely new patterns. Looking forward to the no drama llamas, starry skies & over the rainbows arriving. Will not go back to disposables that's for sure.
I have had to wear panty liners every day since having my twins 8 years ago. Recently Iíve been trying to do my bit for the environment and so glad that I discovered cheeky wipes. These panty liners are soft, comfortable and wash well. I originally ordered 5 just to see how I got on and loved them. Since then Iíve ordered another 5 and got 7 more on order with the new summer offer. I wonít be going back to disposables again. Thank you Cheeky wipes X
I liked the idea of these and am happy that they are better for the environment. I just wish they were a bit thinner and more discreet like a regular panty liner rather than a pad.
I absolutely love this product. So much better for me and the environment than regular liners! I will be buying more!
So i mostly love this product, it is comfy and environmentally friendly, and so far hasnít leaked at all, 100% in my opinion better then the nappy like feel of disposable pads, however there are two things I would change about this pad;The first is that the pad is quite thick so isnít the best to wear with leggins which is what i mostly wear Second the smaller size slips when doing activities, which could potentially cause a problem.Personally I have completely switched to these when Iím at home but when in work I am still using disposable pads. These are a great product and have definitely made things more comfortable! I would completely switch if the smaller sizes didnít slip at all but even with the flaws im so glad that I purchased them
Excellent panty liners - very comfortable and soft. Perfect for lighter days or for backup with a mooncup. They're longer and thicker than the other brand I use but once on they don't feel any bigger or bulkier. If fact I'd say they feel less obtrusive and are soooooo much more comfortable. They don't move at all as long as you have them right way round and have tightish knickers. Wash well and dry quickly. Great service from Cheeky Wipes as usual and I love their plastic-free packaging.
Excellent product. I trialled the pantyliners first and was so impressed, I bought a multi-set of pantiliners, day pads, night pads. Comfortable, soft, donít feel moist or sweaty when theyíre on like some disposables can. I tend to wear them when using a moon cup as a back up and they're perfect for that, or for a very light cycle. They are quite big for normal Ďpanty linerí wear though, although theyíre the smallest brand Iíve found so far. 100% recommend these environmentally-friendly alternatives to disposable, plastic pantyliners.
I used the cloth sanitary pads for the first time last month and they were great. I didnít get the normal chaffing from plastic pads. They were easy to clean and have come up look brand new, ready to use again. I highly recommend these products. They do the job perfectly.
