Our Cheeky Mama Cloth Sanitary Pad starter kits contain:
Optional: Add extra pads, some reusable intimate wipes or a mucky box to soak your dirty pads
Bamboo & Minky pad kits contain 5 pads in patterns of your choice
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.
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! If you're new to all this (or just new to Cheeky Mama's) then read our top tips on how to use Cheeky Mama Cloth Pads, plus how to care for your Cheeky Mama Cloth Pads - it couldn't be easier!

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.
This pack of pads are so cute! Amazingly soft! I haven't had the opportunity to use them yet, but I tried them for size, and the size range is great!

This is a great starter kit, to get the grip of how to use reusable sanitary pads. You get a very good variety of pads and they have been enough to go through my first period with reusable sanitary pads. They also dry very fast, which is good in terms of avoiding running out of pads.
I was hesitant at trying these reusable sanitary pads but now wish I had converted sooner! Took a bit of getting used to, putting the right way so they didn't move in the underwear but they are so much more comfortable than disposable pads seem to absorb so much more! Also the cleaning of them isn't as yucky as I imagined! A complete convert and will be using reusables from now on!
The pads are really soft and wash well. They are gentle on your body and leave you feeling fresher, without that horrible perfume smell plastic pads have on them. The longer pad is great for night times and I've never leaked wearing it. The little bag is so cute and looks really discreet tucked into my work bag. A really good starter kit for anyone tempted to try reusable pads.
I wasn’t sure what I was getting into buying these products. Filling out the survey helped a lot as I was given advice on what products would best suit my needs. It has been good to try different types of the products to best gauge what I prefer. The price is also very reasonable.

Ordered this kit to compliment the the period pants I also purchased. I wore these with the pants and with my everyday pants. The absorbancy is really good. The day pads dealt easily with a medium flow. They rinsed out nicely and washed well on a 30-degree wash. The liner is good for end of period days. I haven't tried the evening pad yet. Really impressed. Will need a few more to cover a whole week though. The wet/dry bag is also really handy for out and about
My product arrived quickly and is fantastic quality, very glad I chose this product

I have used these pads as a back up when using my cup. I found the nighttime and day pads great. super soft, they wash well and absorb really well. The only issue i experienced with the liners was them moving when worn.
I have these products for my granddaughter, who has not yet menstruated, but for her future ! So she can be fully prepared, and planet friendly
Brought this set as a trial after suffering terribly with flooding for years, I LOVE them. The thing I find most impressive is the absorbancy, I would have to change a plastic disposable pad really frequently and was paranoid about the smell, they also made me really sore. All of that has been eliminated by these pads. I was sceptical at first but they are so comfortable, easy to clean and wash and dry quickly I have used them for 2 periods now and I have just invested in a full kit! The night pads in particular are a dream and used with the reusable knickers I'm now able to sleep through a night. So happy and well worth the investment. If unsure go for the starter kit like I did *which is fab by the way* and trial them. Only small point is the double wet bag which comes with the kit is too big for me use while out and about so maybe give the option of selecting a smaller size at the point of ordering? Love cheeky wipes!!!!
