100% Cotton Ultrapad :
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.
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.
I am new to reusable external protection, I have been using a moon cup for around a year now. Talking to friends cheeky wipes came recommended. After doing their questionnaire I was given a good list of recommendations including a mixture of night pads, day pads and period pants.The pads are of excellent quality, fit nicely and don't move around a great deal. I find they do "hold more" than single use products too. I would highly recommend. It was nice to not worry about having enough products in the house, and helping the environment too.

I added to my collection of cotton CSP as they are so comfy and the new dark grey lining is an added bonus. I feel so much better wearing these than disposables and wish I had found them sooner!

The quality of this pad is lovely, and it's soft and lightweight, but I would need the width reduced by a couple of centimeters at least. There's a bit too much fabric for me so it makes it bulkier than it should be.

I'm really looking for a substitute for a panty liner, so these are a bit bulky, and pricey, but good for long walks.
I was hesitant at first as I am fussy about being clean, but having allergic reactions all the time to disposable pads I decided to try these. I am so glad I did, for the first time ever I have had no allergic reactions. They were easy to clean and used the Day Pad and Panty Liner and they were very absorbent. I love this product so much that I have place another order. They were quick to answer my messages and once delivery was placed I recieved 4 days later. Best decision ever!
I have a selection of sizes and materials and have to say all of the sanitary products have been comfortable and reliable. I have used them under sports wear, evening wear and even swim wear and been confident every time that the product stays on place and does its job. Would highly recommend to everyone.
I’m so glad that I have finally made the witch to reusable sanitary pads after initially being quite nervous . They are so comfortable and easy to use and much nicer than disposable pads, which I always found made me uncomfortable. You can also rely on these so no need to worry about leaks!! They are really easy to clean too!! Not only that but they’ve helped my achieve one if my primary goals at the moment by reducing my plastic waste!!I would highly recommend these!!
These are so much better than the disposable ones! They hold much more and they are soft and feel very natural when wearing. Very decent prices too. I never go back to disposables!
This was my first time using a cloth pad, and I was impressed by the comfort, absorpency and how easy to rinse prior to washing.
These are so much better than disposable sanitary pads. They're soft against your body, keep you feeling clesn and dry. I'm a complete convert to reusable sanitary pads and period pants.
