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!

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

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.

They're beautifully made, pretty, comfortable etc. However, they were all different sizes and certainly not capable of dealing with a very heavy flow. So will have to use at the petering out phase.

Hi Beshlie, you chose our starter kit, which comes with one liner, 3 day pads and one night pad. They are much more absorbent than they look, so worth trying to see how you get on with them, alternatively try our Cheeky Mama pads which are thicker and therefore more absorbent.

I like the design although the fit is more bulky than I expected, but i think i will get used to it. Showed my daughter who has not yet started her period and she really liked the look of them!

I bought 3 different types of reusable sanitary towels from different companies but love these ultrapure as they're so thin and discreet. The bag is so useful too when your out and about

Sturdy, great design
Thursday, 1 November 2018  |  Victoria

The boxes are well made and sturdy. Like the colour coding of the kits with the essential oils. Ordered the pink box as a variation for reusable sanitary products. Love the design feature of the hooks with the net so you donít need to get your hands in the soaking solution.

Great first impressions
Thursday, 1 November 2018  |  Victoria

I have wanted to try non disposables for a long time to cut the amount of throwaway plastic I am using. I have used these for the first time and am really pleasantly surprised...they are beautifully soft and they clean up really well with no staining so far (I purchased a mucky box to soak them in before washing) They do move about slightly but will try tighter fitting underwear as suggested in other reviews...no leakages so far as theyíre super absorbent. Will definitely try the thinner cotton ones for towards the end of my period.

As someone who wears a "just in case" incontinence pad, I was getting really tired of buying pads, wearing them and putting them into landfill, especially when 99% of the time I hadn't needed to wear one anyway.
I bought some of these initially to wear around the house, at least I thought I will be reducing the amount I use. Now I wear them everywhere!

I ordered three pairs and I'm going back for more...... I suffer with mehorragia and it usually looks like a horror movie even with two maternity pads but these little beauts kept everything in overnight no stress!
Definitely buying more.
My only criticisism is that they sit quite low..... I'd like them to come up slightly higher for all out Bridget Jones comfort!

A great way to reduce your plastic use.

I tried washable sanitary pads 15 years ago but found they just didnít keep me dry. These Cheekywipes pads are a whole different thing! I bought two to try and now Iíve ordered another ten; I wonít be going back to disposable pads. Theyíre comfortable, absorbent and donít slide around (as long as you follow the advice about the nap on the back). Highly recommended x

I bought the starter pack and was so impressed i bought some more day pads for me and my sister. Really well made, comfortable and so absorbant. They wash really well too. I shall never go back to disposables.

Loving it
Sunday, 7 October 2018  |  Penny

Iíve only had these wipes for a week but as a busy childminder they have impacted well in my setting. As you can imagine lots of runny noses and bum changes needed attending to and I love the feel and smell of these. Iíve also asked the children and they prefer them too. Much nicer than wet wipes. Iíve even used them to wipe down hard surfaces in the kitchen. Iíll definitely be carrying on.

Fantastic value
Thursday, 20 September 2018  |  Nicki

I have tried cloth pads on and off over the years and never really took to them. I mostly use a cup but sometimes like the security of having a pad too. These are so comfortable and stay in place really well (but snug fitting pants are a must!). I think they are terrific value and my order came super fast.

Great product!

We have been pleasantly surprised by how easy the switch has been and like that you can still use them out and about with the travel bags. You do need to be pretty disciplined and organised with keeping supplies fresh and would definitely suggest a second pack of wipes so you have plenty for wash rotation. We wash them on a 60 degree wash so they are totally clean and have no issue then using bum wipes for hands and face. Although there is the option to have white ones for hands and face and colours for the bum, comes down to personal preference, but they genuinely clean and fresh. We really started looking at this option because my youngest has really sore nappy rash from every wipe brand we've tried leading to us spending a small fortune on sudocream and other such products. Since using cloth wipes its been a miracle for his bum as its no longer red and sore. I love how usually 1 wipe does the job whereas you need to use some 5-6 packet wipes and we were going through them pack after pack with 2 boys! So bottom line buy them we wouldn't go back now having changed across.

Never looked back!!
Friday, 31 August 2018  |  Becky

I bought these around 18 months ago and they still look like new. I originally ran on night pads and liners which was fine. These cope with 'flooding' amazingly well, I have never had a leak. They haven't stained and they are not gross at all. I was sceptical to read that period pain can be reduced by switching from disposables but its true. My flow is a little lighter and doesn't last as long. I just chuck them in with the washing or with the nappies. I now have a few day pads for the last day, purely because they looked pretty and I'm slightly addicted. They are so soft and don't move around in my underwear even thought they're a shiney material. I use the liners every day just chucking them in the normal wash and they are still like new. Granted they're slightly more grey than white on top but I can deal with that. These are by far some of the cheapest CSP out there. I have tried slightly cheaper but these are made so much better. The quality is untouchable.
