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!

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 wouldnít 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
Wednesday, 12 December 2018  | 

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 canít 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.

Not what I was expecting
Monday, 8 May 2017  | 

I decided to try the starter set based on the picture as it was really hard to tell what I would be getting and what turned up was not what I was expecting. I'm not entirely convinced they are for me either as they kept slipping around when I was wearing them. Having said that they are very comfy and I mostly could forget I had them on.

Response:

Just a couple of ideas for you to stop the slipping - the underside fabric (the minky side) can be brushed in 2 different directions. If you are finding the pad slipping a little, try turning it 180 degrees so what was at the front is now at the back - this sounds odd but if the fabric is going in the other direction it grips better on your underwear and stays put! We also recommend wearing a tighter pant with a high percentage of lycra in, this also helps keep them in place.

Nice mixture of pads to try
Thursday, 4 May 2017  | 

I've been really pleased with the pads so far, but due to an error on my part they weren't quite what i was expecting! As they were in the 'cotton cloth ultrapad' section i thought i would be getting a mixture of sizes and colours of just the ultrapads, when in fact you receive a mixture of all pads including bamboo and minky cloth. This is clear now i've re-read the description (entirely my fault for not reading it properly!) but i wonder if this might sit better on the general 'cloth san pads' page alongside the links to the two different types of pad, rather than just under the 'ultrapads' section? Just to save any confusion.

Mama cloth sanitary pads
Tuesday, 23 April 2019  |  Sophie

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!!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE
Tuesday, 23 April 2019  |  Sophie

Ok so I was super sceptical of these, HOWEVER after yet another night of flooding the bed I thought id invest in a pair and try them...ÖÖ they are AMAZING, I used them with a night pad and honestly they are super comfortable, I didn't leak through and they washed and dried ready for the next night. I love them so much I've just ordered a 3 pack. I'm telling everyone about them as they have honestly made such a difference to my life. Some things I see people asking about on here that I can answer
1) they don't smell at all, in fact I'm far more conscious when I have to wear a horrible sweaty plastic sanitary pad *yuk*
2) They don't leak, not even a tiny bit and just feel like super comfy knickers
3) if like me you have had to spend years washing out knickers in the sink anyway these wash and clean like a dream.

Amazing product
Tuesday, 23 April 2019  |  Marta

This is the best invention ever made! I finally donít feel guilty in polluting the world with ladies tampons the panties are extremely comfortable, I really donít feel like I am on my period and I donít get any rush or irritation due to sanitary pads, which used to bother my skin a lot! I am a size 8 and I ordered 4/6 thanks to other clients reviews as the size is a bit misleading, so always order a size down from your actual size

Best baby buy

My favourite purchase. They are so much more efficient than wet wipes, never had to use more than two even with the biggest nappy explosion. Canít recommend them to everyone enough.

Absorbent and easier to manage than you would expect
Saturday, 20 April 2019  |  Sharon

Review of bamboo charcoal pads.

I bought these to try to address cystitis during and after a period. I use a Mooncup with a pad.

The most important thing about using these pads is ensuring your pad is the right way round. If you get it the wrong way it slips back and gets very uncomfortable. I find putting the pad gusset side down on your knee is the most reliable method (except for two of the liners, where the knap of the fabric is sideways). Annoyingly there is no convention as to which wing the label is on, which would have been helpful.

The pads are significantly more absorbent than disposables. You need to change them far less often and donít feel wet if your flow is heavy.

The pads are easy to rinse out and just sit in the water/tea tree oil solution until you are ready to wash them. Incidentally, thatís a much more pleasant aroma in your bathroom than used pads in a bin.

I did find I needed to put them in the wash every day or I would run out of day pads. This leads to loads of just sanitary pads if you donít have much laundry. I found it was difficult to put a small enough dose of powder in for a wash of just 3-4 pads or you get a lot of suds (I am down to half a teaspoon of powder). Itís also important to ensure you use non-bio powder (better for natural fibres) and your wash program has a sufficient number of rinse cycles.

Overall I would recommend these pads but would say it is probably desirable to get another night pad and a couple more day pads to cut down on the washing a bit. I took a star off for the liners with the crossways knap that causes rotation.

Great for bladder weakness too
Monday, 15 April 2019  |  Katie

Iíve been suffering with bladder issues since having chemo for breast cancer and been having to use tenna style pads to avoid frequent knicker and trouser changes etc. But itís been bugging me that while Iím using reusable wipes and nappies on my baby Iím binning non recyclable pads every single day for myself not just at period time.

So I contacted Cheeky Wipes to ask if these sanitary pads would be any good for bladder weakness and they said yes. Eventually I took the plunge and ordered the kit. Iíve been using them for just over a week and they are brilliant.

The pads are so much more comfortable. They donít rub or cause chafing and I donít feel like theyíre upsetting my natural system down there risking thrush as I did with the disposable pads. And of course so much more environmentally friendly.

Iím currently due baby no.2 anytime so Iíll be interested to see how well they perform and wash clean as actual sanitary pads when my period returns.

So comfortable and no leaks
Sunday, 14 April 2019  |  Ashling

The material is soft and makes the pants really comfortable to wear, I wore on my heaviest day and they coped fine, I even went running in them and it wasnít a problem. I only have one pair at the minute but I will definitely be buying more.

Perfect
Saturday, 13 April 2019  |  Lydia

So happy with this product. Had been wanting to get some period pants for a while but everywhere else I looked they were too pricey. Then found cheeky wipes and you can get 3 pairs for the same price as 1 from somewhere else. Was so happy with the quality; they're so comfortable, look great and are so absorbent. Definitely would recommend!

Great product
Saturday, 13 April 2019  |  Charlotte

I have both styles of period pants from cheeky wipes, I bought the lace top ones initially then after being really pleased with them bought the bikini style.

Personally, I prefer the lace top ones simply because thereís more coverage should you have a spillage. The lace top have full coverage back to front, whereas the sport style has coverage all up the back and some up the front; if the front coverage was just two inches longer then these would be just as good as the lace top ones (for me); if youíre a Ďfront bleederí Iíd recommend the lace top. Iíve decided that this style will be better for me in the last few days of my period, when it isnít as heavy.

Other than that, the quality is excellent, style is lovely, fit is true to size. I read a review which said that they come up big so to size down however I bought 12-14 and they are just right. I wear both pants alone, with no other protection, my periods are a pretty standard flow and Iíve never leaked, they are so comfortable and donít feel wet/ sticky at all! These pants are so easy and have changed my period experiences massively, I love them and tell everyone about them! Thank you Cheeky Wipes!

Relief....
Sunday, 7 April 2019  |  Karen

So glad to have found these beauties. It's been bothering for me so long about my usage of cotton pads which were as vegan as I could get them. No longer do I have to worry. Only had them for 2 weeks and already can't imagine life without them. They work with all my usual cleansers and are gentle enough round my eyes without worry. I washed them all first before I used them too so they were very plumptious and soft. Yay cheeky wipes - thanks for helping me with my guilt.
