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 Buy 5 or 10 and SAVE Money!

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.

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!

Optional: Add extra pads, some reusable intimate wipes or a mucky box to soak your dirty pads, alternatively take a look at our Cheeky Mama 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.

Tight Pants

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.

 

  • Rinse them in cold water when you change them and then soak in cold water until you are ready to wash them​.
  • Wash at 20c or 30c on a longer cycle, warm washing sets blood stains and can damage your pads.

  • Line dry, reshape whilst damp.

Comfy and efficient

Very soft and comfortable. Marginally more bulky than a disposable pad, but it feels so soft it doesn't bother me. I find it more absorbent than a disposable, and less smell!

Ultra day pads

I am repurchasing! I find them so good! No leaks at all! I have actually stopped using my mooncup since I first bought these after years of using tampons/mooncup as I find them so good and comfortable! Highly recommend!

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.

Best pads I own
Saturday, 15 December 2018  | 

I love these cotton daily pads. Iím slowly replacing all my back ups with these. I feel comfortable and with some tight pants they havenít 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.

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.
