Cheeky Mama Ultrapads - Luxury Cloth Cotton Sanitary Pads from Cheeky Wipes - for heavy flow

Size:        30cm x 7 cm (approx.) - suitable for heavy days of your period, overnight use or severe incontinence.

Consists of 4 layers:

  • Leakproof printed cotton outer layer (laminated),
  • Two absorbent cotton/organic cotton layers,
  • Inner layer cotton / organic cotton
  • No fluorescence, bleaching, formaldehyde, dioxins or any harmful chemicals that cause rash, irritation and itching.

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.

Please note that the price quoted is for s SINGLE pad, multipacks are available separately.

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!  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!

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!

These are so much more comfortable than disposables.

Work overnight and for medium flow
Tuesday, 28 August 2018  | 

I've been using these post partum as maternity pads once my main bleeding had stopped. Found them comfy and absorbent, although don't know what they would be like if I was back to my normal period flow. They come out reasonably well in the wash but find it's best if you pre-soak them first.

This is my first time going down the reusable route and I am pleasantly surprised. Once you get over the rinsing straight after and putting in to soak rather than binning itís a breeze. Glad I made the change and will be buying more so I can use all the time rather than just when at home

Quite flimsy to hold and the shape seemed out of proportion to the clip part.

Disappointed
Friday, 19 January 2018  | 

Was very disappointed - was comfortable but the stains would not come out even though I followed care instructions to the letter. I'll just stick with bamboo/minkee - definitely prefer those

Thanks for taking the time to review the pads. I find that giving them a spray with some stain remover before they go in the machine does the job. I wash them on 30 or 40 on a longer wash - a quick wash wont give them long enough to move about in the machine!

Thin and comfortable
Sunday, 10 December 2017  | 

Deceptively thin pad that stays in place well. Softens after a couple of washes. Not as soft as the bamboo and minky cloth but very comfortable and cool to wear.

Not worth the money unless improvements are made
Friday, 13 October 2017  | 

These pads are very thin and discreet and would offer excellent protection if they would stay in place. I've used mine only a handful of times between the both of them because I'm just not protected. The pads constantly slide up the back of my underwear, leaving me prone to leaking as there is no coverage at the front and I can't very well keep pulling the pad back to the front every 10 minutes. Very disappointing considering how much each pad cost, not ideal for nighttime or postpartum as they aren't long enough. The minky pads, on the other hand, although thicker, are amazing, stay in place and are a great length.

not as gross as I thought!
Monday, 3 July 2017  | 

A year ago, the thought of CSP disgusted me, dealing with the blood and washing seemed unsanitary. Since giving birth thrush has plagued every period and in desperation I turned to cloth. I am converted. No thrush. In a heat wave, no sweaty, self conscious stinkiness. The cleaning of the blood is nothing compared to even disposable poonami blowouts. I am converted! The fact it works out cheaper in the long run is just a bonus.

Great pad
Monday, 8 May 2017  | 

I was initially a bit sceptical about the shape of this pad, but it is brilliant, especially for traveling in. Great coverage, doesn't move about, great absorbency and super thin, what more could you want!

Perimenopausal Flood Barrier!
Friday, 14 April 2017  | 

This has been amazing for me. I use it at night and the absorbency is amazing. Very very limited clean ups needed in terms of bedding etc on waking now. I'm surprised at how much less these smell than the chemical disposable pads, everything smells fresher. And this is amazingly comfortable, feels just like wearing underwear - no bulk or discomfort.

So comfy
Sunday, 20 January 2019  |  Bridget

I suffer from "oops" moments due to a complete lack of oestrogen thanks to the joy of breast cancer and oestrogen blocking pills for the last 14 years. I find I need to use pads/panty liners most days (when I am going out) just to feel confident. My skin is red raw in the "lady regions". A few days of these combined with the alternative toilet paper kit and my skin has already improved loads. Nowhere near as sore and no longer bleeding. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Brilliant.

Wonderful
Sunday, 20 January 2019  |  Bridget

I tried these with some trepidation... !! I have had breast cancer twice (yes, bit greedy of me - once should have been enough). I have been on oestrogen blocking pills for the past 14 years. This has caused dry, sore, cracked and bleeding skin in the whole "downstairs" department. These wipes are fantastic. They really are not at all "yuk". Within just a few days my skin is so much better - no bleeding to start with. I haven't quite gone the whole hog and given up toilet paper completely! 1 wipe with that and then the rest with these brilliant wipes. Cannot recommend them highly enough. Also now using cloth sanitary pads for "oops" moments.

With the multitude of options for reusable sanitary towels I went with cheeky wipes due to them being UK based, lovely designs and the 'family business' approach. I am very happy with my decision!
My enquiries were answered quickly and helpfully by a friendly, genuine person.
The pads themselves are very comfortable and absorbant.
If you have a heavy flow you can certainly run through but if you change every few hours it shouldn't happen.
So much more comfortable than any disposables I've used (including organic cotton). I bought the cotton fabric and the bamboo minky to see how they compared.. I was worried the minky may be slight sweaty but not at all. The terry bamboo is so soft and very absorbant. I will definitely be recommending to friends + family!

Skin So Soft!

Bought as a gift for my SIL. Her message to me:
Do you use those face wipes that you got me? Theyíre literally my favourite thing ever, my skin has never been so soft and clear! ☺️ xx No I donít but I definitely will be!!

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.
