Cheeky Wipes mission is to provide simple reusable alternatives to single-use products, and this is why we are SUPER excited to be partnering with non-profit City to Sea, with their mission to reduce plastic pollution at source.

Here in the UK a staggering 4.3 billion disposable menstrual products are used every year! Many people don’t realise that most period and incontinence pads (including Always, Bodyform and most supermarket own-brands) can contain up to 90% plastic – the equivalent of five plastic bags per pack of 14 pads. Most tampons also contain a thin layer of plastic.

What’s more, although no period products should go down the loo, it’s estimated that between 1.5 – 2 billion menstrual products are flushed down UK loos every year. Many of these items block our sewer systems and escape into our rivers and seas. Period products are now the 5th most common item found littering European beaches.

We've created a range of co-branded products to help raise funds and awareness of their fantastic work. For each one of these pads purchased, we’ll give £1 to City to Sea.

Cotton Ultrapad - Luxury Cotton Cloth Sanitary Pads from Cheeky Wipes - for normal flow

Size:        25cm x 7cm (approx) - suitable for most days of your period, or general incontinence.  Please note that this listing is for a SINGLE pad Buy 5 or 10 and SAVE Money!

100% Cotton Ultrapad :

  • Leakproof printed cotton outer layer (laminated),
  • two absorbent cotton/organic cotton layers,
  • inner layer cotton 

What's the difference between these and the bamboo minky pads? The ultrapads are made of cotton which is a natural material rather than minky which is manmade. As such it tends to be cooler to wear. They are also thinner, so if you prefer a thinner more discreet pad or if you're buying for a teenager, these are perfect for you. They are also less likely to move around as the cotton fabric will stay in place better. The downside of being thinner is that they are less absorbent, so if your periods are on the heavy side, we'd recommend the bamboo minky instead.

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!

Optional: Add extra pads, some reusable intimate wipes or a mucky box to soak your dirty pads, alternatively take a look at our Cheeky Pants Sanitary Pad kits and SAVE money!

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.

Tight Pants

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.
