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 it’s 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.

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
Wednesday, 27 February 2019  |  Hannah

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.

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!

Cons;
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!!

Pros;
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

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
