Our Cheeky Mama Ultrapad Cotton Cloth Sanitary Pad starter kits contain:

Optional: Add extra pads, some reusable intimate wipes or a mucky box to soak your dirty pads 

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.

Care Instructions:  Cold wash only, line dry, reshape whilst damp. Warm washing sets blood stains and can damage your pads.  

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!

Well thought out
Monday, 16 September 2019  | 

I went for a starter kit as I wasn't 100% sure what I would need or how I would get on with these but I am very happy with them. The whole kit is well thought out and well made and I shall be recommending them!

Beware the shape and size of different pad types.
Sunday, 11 August 2019  | 

I got the cotton cloth start kit, as well as a couple of the minky ones. I'm so relieved I got the cotton cloth ones as they are bigger but thinner so I think I'm much less likely to leak wearing these, though I'll likely still have to wear a tampon? Knowing how much I move around in my sleep and during day, I know that I need a long and wide pad. The minky ones seem to be slightly shorter and not as wide, but thicker. The minky charcoal has this fleece like material that just felt a bit hot and weird.

I originally tried the minky pads, but just couldn’t get on with them. Cheeky wipes sent me some cotton pads to try and I have just ordered a set as I love them. They stay in place, are absorbent, but not bulky and have become my go to pad.

Ok so far
Wednesday, 13 March 2019  | 

Only used once so far, but pads seem to move around and are a bit bulky. They're well-made but so far I've found the smaller ones are not suitable for anything other than a 'light' day.

The bag to keep them all in, while useful, is so bright. I ordered a 'grey bird' bag and it's bright red! As the images don't change according to your choice on the dropdown it's not clear what bag you're receiving. It's not very discreet when I'm carrying it to the bathroom at work!

Response:

Thanks for taking the time to review the starter kit and I hope the pads were effective on their first use? They are our slimmest pads so I'm sorry if you found them a bit bulky. With the absorbent layers they will be slightly thicker than a disposable but do have more absorbency.
The smallest pad in the kit is the liner and these are great for lighter days or everyday use so I hope they come in useful at the beginning and end of your period. I find 1 liner lasts me the whole day on a lighter day.
We do recommend wearing a good tight pant with some lycra in to keep the pads in place. I go for my trusty M&S bikini style with 5% lycra and they don't budge!

A little big
Sunday, 27 January 2019  | 

The pads are made of lovely soft cotton and so feel lovely when you wear them. But they are rather big and bulky - like wearing an old style sanitary pad, and kind of crumple up, rather than lying flat. So, I will probably only use them overnight as I wouldn’t feel confident/comfortable wearing them out and about. However, this is really what I wanted them for as I want to not use a tampon overnight. So although bulky, they do work well for what I want.

So comfy
Sunday, 20 January 2019  | 

I suffer from "oops" moments due to a complete lack of oestrogen thanks to the joy of breast cancer and oestrogen blocking pills for the last 14 years. I find I need to use pads/panty liners most days (when I am going out) just to feel confident. My skin is red raw in the "lady regions". A few days of these combined with the alternative toilet paper kit and my skin has already improved loads. Nowhere near as sore and no longer bleeding. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Brilliant.

A new beginning

These formed part of my starter kit on my new journey into reusable sanitary products. They are lovely, soft and flexible. I had no issues with leaks. Good for those who are sensitive down there to be able to use cotton pads.

Love these
Saturday, 1 September 2018  | 

I tried these and the bamboo and minky ones and I preferred these. They feel nicer and stay in place better. The downsides are they take a while to dry and you can’t tumbke dry them but a dehumidifier would help speed that up I guess. Also they stained quite badly but I know line drying will help bleach that off. I would definitely recommend them

Wow!
Sunday, 30 July 2017  | 

I can honestly say that having used these cotton sanitary pads for one period, not only will I never go back to the awful scented plasticky disposable ones, but I only wish that I had made the change years ago, They are reliably leak proof, comfortable, easy to use and wash and the only sanitary product I have ever used which hasn't given me a bout of thrush. I can't recommend them highly enough. The only improvement I can suggest would be one more pad in the starter kit just to not have to worry about them being dry in time to reuse them.

So Comfortable, So Worth It!
Monday, 14 October 2019  |  Emily

I've just recieved my pack of these period pants and I'm ready in love! The worst part of a period for me has always been wearing uncomfortable pads, but this underwear is so comfortable to wear and I feel very secure in them. I've been wanting to try these for ages but couldn't justify spending so much money on them as lots of competitors charge, but Cheeky Wipes do a three pack for what most other shops selling these charge for one pair! Definitely recommend.

A revolution.
Monday, 14 October 2019  |  Emma

I can wipe a bum or a mucky face with a fraction of the number of disposable wipes I used to use and a fraction of the time. And every second counts with a squirmy toddler. The texture is so much nicer than disposables too. No more poking holes or twisting up in my hand as I get a wipe out the packet. They are So good they’ve gone in the bathroom for the adults to use too and I even put some in my handbag when I go out alone.

Great service, great products.
Friday, 11 October 2019  |  Jennie

Thank you all for your speedy service and reliably great products. I've ordered a few from you now and continue to be impressed. I love the day pads - so much better than any shop bought disposable, I really wish I'd swapped over to them sooner. I use the charcoal version and they are super comfy and surprisingly absorbant. I use them in conjuction with the pants - brilliant. I'm just so happy to have found something that works better than expected and means I can reduce my single use waste.

Lovely kit
Saturday, 28 September 2019  |  Laura

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.

Simple and fabulous
Saturday, 28 September 2019  |  Laura

Never tried period pants before, bought these as a tester. Will be buying more! The inside of the pants is soft and cotton so really comfy. I will be wearing these for days when I'm not sure if I'm going to start my monthly flow/ when sleeping over at a friend's house on a heavy flow whilst using a moon cup. I'd recommend these to anyone.

Fantastic!
Monday, 23 September 2019  |  Rebecca

Having a heavy flow, I was really worried whether reusable pads would be up to the job. But these are even better than the top brand traditional sanitary pads! I used them overnight, and through the day on day 1 and 2 of my period. They absorb so much more than I was expecting; without feeling damp or heavy. I have felt so comfortable and dry. Plastic pads and tampons make my skin quite sore, but these are beautifully soft. I found that by wearing cotton underwear, these didn't move about at all - i read in the top tips to turn the pad around if it feels slippy, and that worked! The nap of the minky fabric holds it in place. I find them easy to rinse out in the sink (though I have been amazed by how much liquid they hold) and then store in the mucky box with some cold water and stain remover until washing..
I've already ordered more so that I have enough to cover the whole of my next period, because I am so impressed - I don't think I can ever go back now I've experienced these. I feel so much better knowing I am not sending lots of plastic to landfill. But using these pads actually makes my period a much less painful experience, too! Wow!

I'm amazed!
Monday, 23 September 2019  |  Rebecca

I've just woken up fresh, clean, and dry thanks to these amazing pants! Night 2 of my period, which is normally the heaviest, was dealt with effortlessly thanks to these beauties. I wore them for the first time last night and they covered me for 8 hours with no leaks or having to get up in the night to change pads/tampons. They are so much more comfortable than traditional sanitary products which irritate my sensitive skin; but I also feel much more secure with them - though they don't feel bulky at all. They stay put nicely and feel really soft, ideal for night times.
The only thing I would change is to make them a bit higher waisted - they sit quite low on my hips so to wear them for daytimes I would prefer a higher rise to hold my tummy in a bit more and give a smoother line under clothes. But otherwise, they are magic! I will never go back to pads and tampons now - just ordered a load more from Cheeky Wipes, so next month I won't have to

Sassiest pant ever! Period.....
Tuesday, 17 September 2019  |  Jade

I own the sports pants and lace pants and couldn’t wait to try these.

As per they didn’t disappoint. These pants have saved so much anxiety around my heavy cycles. These give my comfort mentally but also physically. They feel great and soft.

Periods are uncomfortable last thing you want is your disposable products causing further irritation. All I can say is if you are reading this review trying to make your mind up whether or not to make the switch. Then I’d say absolutely. Stop reading and go purchase. You are welcome.
