Cheeky Mama Ultrapad - Luxury Cotton Cloth Sanitary Pads from Cheeky Wipes - for normal flow

Size:        25cm x 7cm (approx) - suitable for most days of your period, or general incontinence.  Please note that this listing is for a SINGLE pad, multipacks are available separately.  

Ultrapad :

  • Leakproof printed cotton outer layer (laminated),
  • two absorbent cotton/organic cotton layers,
  • inner layer cotton 

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:  Wash at 20c or 30c, warm washing sets blood stains and can damage your pads.  Line dry, reshape whilst damp.

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!

Why not add some of our reusable intimate wipes to your order and / or a wetbag for carrying clean and dirty pads / wipes? You can also buy the pads in packs of 5 or 10 , alternatively take a look at our Cheeky Mama Sanitary Pad kits and SAVE money!

The Ultrapads are super soft and absorbant. I had no issues with leaking and they are really easy to wash.

Great feeling

The pads are very soft and comfortable compared to disposable pads. I only have it 4 stars because Iím finding it hard to get all the stains out. I donít mind, as I know they are washed and hygienic, though.

Day pad and packaging
Friday, 14 December 2018  | 

Happy with this product as an extra protection is thinner and lighter than the minky pads and better on hot weather.
I am also impressed with the packaging of the products that I received no plastic, less waste, which is great to see that you are helping reduce and be eco friendly.

Love them!
Monday, 3 December 2018  | 

These are so, so much nicer to wear than disposable ones. For a little bit of effort giving them a rinse after using them you get so many benefits. Also I initally tried the panty liners and loved them but wondered if the bigger ones would feel bulky but if anything they're even more comfortable. Highly recommend them to everyone.

omg!
Saturday, 23 June 2018  | 

Well, I was dubious at first.. how will I manage? will they wash ok? will it be a bit sticky and horrid. These are so lovely you wont want to go back to those sticky disposables again. I bought 8 in total, 3 these and 3 day pad and 2 night pads and all were amazingly comfy, soft and no redness on my inner thigh like I got with shop bought pads. I used the outer popper for day and at night tightened up on 2nd popper. My advice would be tho to buy some big tight-ish knickers so it doesnt move around. This pad didnt but the night time ones need tight knickers. I washed with vanish stain stick and cold water and hid on the line behind a shirt so neighbours didnt see 8 lasted a whole period with one wash load in middle.. 8-10 would be the best number for a 5 day cycle bleed.

So comfortable!
Tuesday, 15 May 2018  | 

I really wish I had tried these pads ages ago. I can't believe how comfortable and easy to fit they are. I was a bit worried about washing them, but I rinsed each one straight away after using then washed with my eco egg at 40 and they can out completely clean.

Not very absorbant
Monday, 14 August 2017  | 

I was really hoping to use these to replace my Tena lady, so I bought 2 to give them a go. However, the first day I used one, I ended up having to change as, after a cough, the pad was soaked and because it is fabric, the moisture seeped across the fabric and round onto the fastening strip, so I felt uncomfortable and had to change.

Response:

Hi Ros,
Sorry to hear you were disappointed with your pads, however the thicker and more absorbent bamboo & minky pads might have been better suited for incontinence.
In addition, the pads will gain absorbency over the first couple of washes, so it might be worth trying again after they have been washed a couple of times?

So easy to make the switch!
Monday, 15 July 2019  |  Rachel

I am so glad I got the full kit with a mix of cotton and minkey style pads, it gave me a chance to experiment with the different options and decide which worked best for me. It also made moving over to reusables so easy as I had everything I needed on hand to get going, At the same time I also purchased a double wet bag and a 3 pack of period pants. Having only used these items for one period so far, I did still have to use a disposable pad because I hadn't factored in the washing and drying time, but I'll know better next time. So far, I have washed on a separate cold wash and they've all come up perfectly clean and ready to go again. The t-tree drops to go in the mucky box is a nice touch and helps keep everything fresh smelling between washes. My only struggle with the move to reusable sanitary products was being able to find somewhere discrete to rinse pads when not at home, when I wasnít able to do this I dropped the pad in my travel bag anyway and made sure to give it a really good soak, and some stain remover, as soon as possible and theyíve been fine.

Life changing!
Thursday, 20 June 2019  |  Charlotte

Well, I'm never going back to single use menstrual products. Ever. I bought these in a size 6-8 (I'm a really borderline 8-10) and although they said 4-6 on the underwear when they arrived, they fit perfectly - so definirely follow the advice and go a size down.
They do feel like bikini bottoms, but that's fine! They're not heavy in anyway, and in absolutely no way are they detectable under gym clothes, let alone jeans.

Leaks?! What leaks? I put these to the ultimate test: I wore one pair, without taking any spare, to work on my heaviest day. This meant I wore the pair from 6am until I got home and showered that night at 8.30pm. On my heaviest day. Absolutely no smell, absolutely no leak. Yes, by about 6.45pm they felt abit wet, but not really uncomfortable, I was just aware they needed changing. But I'd already gone over the recommended 12 hours by then anyway!

One thing i would say is don't wash these on a cold wash - I washed them separately in a cold wash halfway through my cycle (I didnt buy enough to cover my whole week as I was meant to be a test) and they did stain. When I put them through with the rest of y2k washing on a 30c wash, they came out good as new. But like others have said, they do take a while to dry. Not a problem in the summer, but as they don't tumble dry, you'd need a full set to get you through the week in the winter as they do take a couple days to air dry.

All in all, I recommend them to anyone who will listen! Comfortable, cheaper than competitors, do exactly what they promise to, and no more menstrual products going to landfill! Result!

I bought these for my daughter who is 13 and was finding pads awful and tampons impossible. She lives them! No leaks, no slipping or sticking or discomfort. Definitely follow the advice to size down. She's a 6-8 and the 4-6 fit perfectly. They wash well and dry fairly quickly. I'll definitely be buying here some more so that I don't have to be quite so on it with the wash cycle.

Saturday, 15 June 2019  |  Eleanor

Great product, great price. The advice to size down is good. I'm a 16-18 usually but bought the 14-16 which fit perfectly. My periods are not mega heavy but I found I wanted to change them in the middle of the first day. After that one pair at night and one in the day worked fine. I only bought three pairs to try but I'll be buying more so I don't have to be quite so on top of the wash cycle. Best of all, I haven't thrown anything away. I will be recommending them to everyone I know!

Saturday, 15 June 2019  |  Rhona

These pants are so comfortable, absorbent and practical. I was nervous at first but neednít have been. I even did a half marathon in them! For a medium flow there was no leaking and any days I wanted a little reassurance I used the cheeky wipes ultrapad cotton cloth sanitary pads instead.
My skin is grateful and the planet too.
Only heads up would be that the absorbent layers run all the way down the back of the pants to the gusset so if you are a Ďfront bleederí it potentially could stop a little short for you.

Love them, changed my period!
Tuesday, 21 May 2019  |  Sara

I Love them! Felt so safe wearing them the days, and especially nights leading up-to my period (especially as it came early!), and even more so during the first few days. I had them backing up a pad at first, which was great as I tend to have spillover at sides. Then at the end I only used them. I prefer these lace top ones to the Sport style as it covers more and a full absorbency layer.

The quality is excellent. I did not leak, and they are comfortable and donít feel wet. When I felt them the gusset being cold, I changed them for a fresh pair.

They have changed my experience of having my period hugely!

For product development, I'd love a high waist version

Thank you Cheeky Wipes!

Absorbs a LOT and no chafing!
Tuesday, 21 May 2019  |  Sara

I bought the 5-pack BAMBOO †Blue Dragonfly,† Day Pad and Night Pad, (5 each). I have used them once.

For disposable, I go through 10 ultra night pads, an 12 day pads during my 5 day period, although not always, even then I have had issues of leakage.

However, for my whole period this time I used 2 (!) night pads, 2 day pads, backed up with period pants and the last two days only had the period pants. Although I stayed home most of these days and as such could run to the loo if I felt the "gushing", this is way beyond my expectations!

Instead of going through packets of disposables, I used 2 night pads, 2 day pads, 3 lace and 3 sport pants. I am very much impressed!

Beautifully little clouds to clean your face
Friday, 17 May 2019  |  Abigail

These pretty. Reusable pads are gentle but strong and when used with coconut oil quickly make your make up melt away .They are easy. To wash and make you wonder why you have ever used anything disposable on your face. My daughter says they are like little clouds to clean your face !

Great pads and more absorbent than expected
Thursday, 16 May 2019  |  Sarah

I'm a new convert to washable pads and have found these day pads great. Easy to rinse out with cold water, soak in the mucky box with a few drops of oil then machine wash on 30. No stains at all. Brilliant!
