What's the difference between these and the cotton pads? The bamboo plush pads are made of bamboo viscose or charcoal microfleece with a plush outer, being manmade materials, these tend to be a little warmer to wear than the cotton pads. The bamboo plush 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 plush rather than the cotton.
Our pad kits contain 10 pads in patterns of your choice
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! If you're new to all this (or just new to Cheeky Pants's) then read our top tips on how to use Cheeky Pants Cloth Pads, plus how to care for your Cheeky Pants Cloth Pads - it couldn't be easier!
