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!

Best pads I own
Saturday, 15 December 2018  | 

I love these cotton daily pads. I’m slowly replacing all my back ups with these. I feel comfortable and with some tight pants they haven’t moved or had a leak yet which means they are my go to pads for out and about!

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.

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.

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?

Not as good as the fleece ones
Friday, 10 March 2017  | 

Personally I find these move around more than the fleece ones. I also find them harder to get clean. On the positive side they are slightly slimmer but on the whole I prefer the fleecy pads.

Amazing Pad!!!
Monday, 4 July 2016  | 

I ordered 3 of these (2 of them had the organic cotton layer and 1 with plain cotton) and I must say that I am very happy with all of them!!!

They are very comfortable (due to cotton top layer), very thin, absorbent, don't move around and have a waterproof outer layer!

These are very well made, quality pads! Love them!!!

Great addition to my reusable period kit.
Monday, 18 March 2019  |  Sheryl

They are great. They hold a good amount and have never leaked. They are generously sized so go down a size rather than up. They are really comfortable and make me feel very secure during my period. I also wear them for the just in case days as they are more comfortable than reusable panty liners. I bought one pair initially then a three pack as I was so happy with the first pair. I tend to use tjese rather than pads now.

So amazing

After struggling with cotton wool balls I'll never look back having started using this kit a few days ago.
Bamboo terry is so soft on skin yet super effective at cleaning.
Customer service out of this world.
I thought it was a bit pricey but it's so worth it. No wonder this brand has commandeered the market!

Perfect and very impressed so far
Tuesday, 26 February 2019  |  Caroline

I am cautious about my period and always wear a pad that I change twice daily a few days before I'm due. No longer needed and I'm currently day 3 in so through the worst of my period. I usually double up with a pad and tampon on heavy days but some times still end up leaking. The protection pad is so big no stains in the bed this month and I'm about a size 18-20 and the 16-18 fit perfectly.

Never going back!
Monday, 25 February 2019  |  Ziggi

So comfy and feels so “normal”! Never any moisture or residue in the underwear. When I did have to wear a towel (all pairs of knickers in the wash) it was the most artificial and weird feeling! I feel so much cleaner and fresher using the pants and so much more comfortable and confident. Just ordered another 3 pairs in the other style!

So comfy!!
Saturday, 16 February 2019  |  Rachel

So I wore these for the first time last night; the first night of my period which is my super heavy night....

Firstly, it felt SO comfy to go to bed without any pads on at all!
(I switched to washable pads about 2 years ago, which was already a huge improvement on the plasticy disposable ones, but I still ended up doubling up on this night of my period just to get the length to cover all the way back far enough to stop any leakages).

The absorbent area on these goes all the way to the waistline at the back on these so complete coverages. No leaks, even coped with clots, all night, 8 hours in total. These are a game changer!!

I'm staying overnight at a friend's house this evening and normally I might be worried about leaks, but I've packed my second pair and know there's nothing to worry about.

Also, excellent customer service AS ALWAYS when I had a query about my order.

Thank you!!

Bikini Period Pants
Thursday, 14 February 2019  |  Jennifer

These bikini style period pants have been great. True to size. I use them as a back up for my menstrual cup. Great for the gym as I wanted a back up more discreet than my cloth pads. You wouldn’t even know these weren’t normal pants. Only a 4 star as I feel the actual absorption part should come right up the front, so I don’t believe these would be much use for front bleeders (I wouldn’t be able to use them as my only sanitary protection) I also feel that these would only be suitable for light-medium flow periods due to how thin the protection is. I have a very very heavy flow, so I use a very long, thick cloth pads as back up for night time and these pants have held it in place perfectly.

Lovely feel, no leaks, I am ordering 3
Tuesday, 12 February 2019  |  Onicah

These were very comfortable and I am placing my order for 3,

I'm a convert
Tuesday, 12 February 2019  |  Jess

It's fair to say I was a bit of a skeptic, and a late comer to these - I have a 3yr old and a 1yr old and was happy with my biodegrable wipes, but on the basis they come wrapped in plastic I thought I'd give cheeky wipes a go as part of a drive to reduce my single use plastics.

I am super happy with the product (in my case the towelling starter set) and have made everyone who comes to my house smell them (!!) but in the interests of balance here are the pros & cons for me!

It takes a bit of thinking to work out where to keep them to have them to hand when you need them
I can see that they could become addictive and I may end up buying lots more!!

Really easy to use, and really effective - whether on bums or faces
Straightforward to wash & dry (since I am doing this most days anyway)
Amazing smelling essential oils - no unpleasant smells AT ALL from the mucky box
I purchased them with £10 off in the sale - represents real value for money at this price point
Come up clean following a wash - no alarming staining (yet)

So comfy you forget you're wearing them
Wednesday, 6 February 2019  |  Samantha

I ordered the 10-12 which is my usual size and they fit perfectly, just like normal underwear. So much more comfortable than wearing a pad and so good to know I won't be sending pads to landfill every month.

Another fantastic product
Friday, 1 February 2019  |  Jessica

The Bikini Sports Style pants are just brilliant. I ordered a size smaller and they fit perfectly. They feel great and absolutely do what they should. I now own 6 pairs of pants and a mixed selection of the pads - this has been a period game changer! Thank you guys at cheeky wipes
