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 mild 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!

Works well.
Sunday, 11 August 2019  | 

Does what it says on the tin. I haven't been able to make these stain free, even when soaking in cold water, and putting it on a cold rinse/ wash, it must be the material. These cotton ones are much less sweaty than the bamboo minky ones, so I find them much better even though they stain. The buttons do dig in when I cycle so it is not completely comfortable, but it is great to not be using disposables and it is one of the cheapest reusable pads on the market.

Love these!
Monday, 29 July 2019  | 

These are the best cloth san pro I've tried - cotton ones are thin and super comfy and ultra absorbent, they wash well, don't slip around or encourage thrush and don't smell at all - that awful 'period' smell I've hated all my life...turns out it was the awful plastic pads I was using not me! Never going back. I use the 'maternity' size which is a bit alarming but I obvs have a heavy flow and they aren't bulky at all. On really really heavy days and overnight I use the Minky bamboo ones which absorb a ridiculous amount but are a bit bulky for everyday wear for me. Cheeky wipes prices are unbeatable and the quality is fantastic. Wish I'd had these 25 years ago!!

Great size but disappointed with thickness
Thursday, 4 July 2019  | 

This towel is a good size but we were disappointed with the thickness. For a maternity/night pad it's very thin. Love some of the others on here though

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

Response:

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

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.

So Comfortable, So Worth It!
Monday, 14 October 2019  |  Emily

I've just recieved my pack of these period pants and I'm ready in love! The worst part of a period for me has always been wearing uncomfortable pads, but this underwear is so comfortable to wear and I feel very secure in them. I've been wanting to try these for ages but couldn't justify spending so much money on them as lots of competitors charge, but Cheeky Wipes do a three pack for what most other shops selling these charge for one pair! Definitely recommend.

A revolution.
Monday, 14 October 2019  |  Emma

I can wipe a bum or a mucky face with a fraction of the number of disposable wipes I used to use and a fraction of the time. And every second counts with a squirmy toddler. The texture is so much nicer than disposables too. No more poking holes or twisting up in my hand as I get a wipe out the packet. They are So good theyíve gone in the bathroom for the adults to use too and I even put some in my handbag when I go out alone.

Great service, great products.
Friday, 11 October 2019  |  Jennie

Thank you all for your speedy service and reliably great products. I've ordered a few from you now and continue to be impressed. I love the day pads - so much better than any shop bought disposable, I really wish I'd swapped over to them sooner. I use the charcoal version and they are super comfy and surprisingly absorbant. I use them in conjuction with the pants - brilliant. I'm just so happy to have found something that works better than expected and means I can reduce my single use waste.

Lovely kit
Saturday, 28 September 2019  |  Laura

The pads are really soft and wash well. They are gentle on your body and leave you feeling fresher, without that horrible perfume smell plastic pads have on them. The longer pad is great for night times and I've never leaked wearing it. The little bag is so cute and looks really discreet tucked into my work bag. A really good starter kit for anyone tempted to try reusable pads.

Never tried period pants before, bought these as a tester. Will be buying more! The inside of the pants is soft and cotton so really comfy. I will be wearing these for days when I'm not sure if I'm going to start my monthly flow/ when sleeping over at a friend's house on a heavy flow whilst using a moon cup. I'd recommend these to anyone.

Fantastic!
Monday, 23 September 2019  |  Rebecca

Having a heavy flow, I was really worried whether reusable pads would be up to the job. But these are even better than the top brand traditional sanitary pads! I used them overnight, and through the day on day 1 and 2 of my period. They absorb so much more than I was expecting; without feeling damp or heavy. I have felt so comfortable and dry. Plastic pads and tampons make my skin quite sore, but these are beautifully soft. I found that by wearing cotton underwear, these didn't move about at all - i read in the top tips to turn the pad around if it feels slippy, and that worked! The nap of the minky fabric holds it in place. I find them easy to rinse out in the sink (though I have been amazed by how much liquid they hold) and then store in the mucky box with some cold water and stain remover until washing..
I've already ordered more so that I have enough to cover the whole of my next period, because I am so impressed - I don't think I can ever go back now I've experienced these. I feel so much better knowing I am not sending lots of plastic to landfill. But using these pads actually makes my period a much less painful experience, too! Wow!

I'm amazed!
Monday, 23 September 2019  |  Rebecca

I've just woken up fresh, clean, and dry thanks to these amazing pants! Night 2 of my period, which is normally the heaviest, was dealt with effortlessly thanks to these beauties. I wore them for the first time last night and they covered me for 8 hours with no leaks or having to get up in the night to change pads/tampons. They are so much more comfortable than traditional sanitary products which irritate my sensitive skin; but I also feel much more secure with them - though they don't feel bulky at all. They stay put nicely and feel really soft, ideal for night times.
The only thing I would change is to make them a bit higher waisted - they sit quite low on my hips so to wear them for daytimes I would prefer a higher rise to hold my tummy in a bit more and give a smoother line under clothes. But otherwise, they are magic! I will never go back to pads and tampons now - just ordered a load more from Cheeky Wipes, so next month I won't have to

Sassiest pant ever! Period.....
Tuesday, 17 September 2019  |  Jade

I own the sports pants and lace pants and couldnít wait to try these.

As per they didnít disappoint. These pants have saved so much anxiety around my heavy cycles. These give my comfort mentally but also physically. They feel great and soft.

Periods are uncomfortable last thing you want is your disposable products causing further irritation. All I can say is if you are reading this review trying to make your mind up whether or not to make the switch. Then Iíd say absolutely. Stop reading and go purchase. You are welcome.
