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!

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!

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.

Not long enough for postpartum use. Very thin. Comfy to wear but wouldn't offer enough protection forme

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.

Loving it
Sunday, 7 October 2018  |  Penny

Iíve only had these wipes for a week but as a busy childminder they have impacted well in my setting. As you can imagine lots of runny noses and bum changes needed attending to and I love the feel and smell of these. Iíve also asked the children and they prefer them too. Much nicer than wet wipes. Iíve even used them to wipe down hard surfaces in the kitchen. Iíll definitely be carrying on.

Fantastic value
Thursday, 20 September 2018  |  Nicki

I have tried cloth pads on and off over the years and never really took to them. I mostly use a cup but sometimes like the security of having a pad too. These are so comfortable and stay in place really well (but snug fitting pants are a must!). I think they are terrific value and my order came super fast.

Great product!
Monday, 10 September 2018  |  Claire

We have been pleasantly surprised by how easy the switch has been and like that you can still use them out and about with the travel bags. You do need to be pretty disciplined and organised with keeping supplies fresh and would definitely suggest a second pack of wipes so you have plenty for wash rotation. We wash them on a 60 degree wash so they are totally clean and have no issue then using bum wipes for hands and face. Although there is the option to have white ones for hands and face and colours for the bum, comes down to personal preference, but they genuinely clean and fresh. We really started looking at this option because my youngest has really sore nappy rash from every wipe brand we've tried leading to us spending a small fortune on sudocream and other such products. Since using cloth wipes its been a miracle for his bum as its no longer red and sore. I love how usually 1 wipe does the job whereas you need to use some 5-6 packet wipes and we were going through them pack after pack with 2 boys! So bottom line buy them we wouldn't go back now having changed across.

Never looked back!!
Friday, 31 August 2018  |  Becky

I bought these around 18 months ago and they still look like new. I originally ran on night pads and liners which was fine. These cope with 'flooding' amazingly well, I have never had a leak. They haven't stained and they are not gross at all. I was sceptical to read that period pain can be reduced by switching from disposables but its true. My flow is a little lighter and doesn't last as long. I just chuck them in with the washing or with the nappies. I now have a few day pads for the last day, purely because they looked pretty and I'm slightly addicted. They are so soft and don't move around in my underwear even thought they're a shiney material. I use the liners every day just chucking them in the normal wash and they are still like new. Granted they're slightly more grey than white on top but I can deal with that. These are by far some of the cheapest CSP out there. I have tried slightly cheaper but these are made so much better. The quality is untouchable.
