Theyíre so big! Itís great - 100% recommend. Only need one per night to do everything, so not a huge amount of extra laundry! Win win!

The idea of reusable loo roll was a bit of an uneasy decision, but I wanted to try it. Iíve seen sewage treatment plants and blocked drains frequently through my job, so could certainly see the positives of making such a change.
I have to say that I love it. Itís a much cleaner feeling than traditional loo roll, and the bag system is great inside the mucky box. I have invested in some laundry sanitiser to kill any bacteria that will be growing in the box. This has addressed all of my concerns, and I actually dislike having to use normal toilet paper when Iím out now. Thank you for helping me with this change - I love it! I do have to say that I havenít felt confident to tell anyone yet though - Iím not sure a lot of people would be ready to accept such a change...

I got these as I love the cloth pads Cheeky Wipes do. They are so comfortable and do not leak at all even on a heavy day. Iím not a small girl definitely bigger than a 16 and the 16/18 fitted me nicely. I wish Iíd bought more. So nice to not have to technically wear anything at that time. They arenít very thick at all but are so absorbent like magic. I would say only slightly thicker than your average cotton pants. Thinner than regular pads or cloth pads. Iíll definitely be stocking up.
The All-In-One kit is fabulous!

The all-in-one kit contains everything needed, 25 wipes is plenty for a few days - I use half of them while the other half are in the wash. The oil for the mucky box smells lovely and it only takes two or occasionally three wipes to deal with the worst poosplosion, compared to 6-8 disposables. The little bags for out and about are a really useful addition and overall the system works really, really surprisingly well. Iím never going back! We do still keep a pack of disposable wipes in the changing bag but I donít like to use them, theyíre rubbish in comparison. I just throw the mucky wipes in the wash whenever I have a baby load on anyway. Iíve just started to see some stains on some of the clean wipes after three weeks of intensive use, but a quick bleach soak sorted that out and theyíre as good as new. Just donít wash them with unfastened Velcro bibs... absolute carnage for the poor wipes!

I was sceptical on how effective this product would be... I have used facial wipes forever but was conscious of the environmental and chemical impact. I was pleasantly surprised by how amazing the product is and how natural the concept is. Well done, I'm converted. There's not even a tiny residue of mascara left the following morning! My eyes feel so soothed also!

These pads are great - at my heaviest overnight bleeding the pad will fill, but have never leaked during a period. It feels safe knowing I won't wake up needing to hop straight in the shower!
I originally got these for postpartum bleeding and they were the perfect absorbancy. Didn't leak once bar two tiny spots on the bedsheets. Wearing them overnight they were soaked by the morning but still working. I gave birth at 29 weeks though, so I don't know if that affects how heavy the flow is.
Rinsing them out in cold water just after a change I've found is the best way to go - they wash white and end up softer that way. Had a busy day one day and didn't rinse one or 2 out, put them straight in a wet bag - they have stained to a yellowy brown, but still work the same.
I've been wearing these during the day too on heavier periods just in case and I find they rarely move around and are far more comfortable than their disposable cousins. I forget I'm wearing these a lot of the time

Iíve only been using these a short time but find them a great alternative to cotton wool pads. I use them with my own regular products and they do a fab job. Once used, I pop them into a netting bag to sling them all in the wash together. I donít yet know how these wipes stand up to regular washing, but so far they wash up well and Iím very happy with my purchase!

Fab, and generous on sizing, so I should have opted for smaller. I ordered size 12.
Didn't leak, even when I made a massive mistake in the night and put my washable pad in the wrong way up! (Facepalm)
Lovely and soft, and don't rustle, and look like period pants. Not overly restrictive like some of the other ones out there. ( I have tried a few!)
Fab. Different colours would be great.

Utterly brilliant. Feels safe, secure and comfortable. Couldn't wait to get them on.
Wish I'd tried these sooner

I decided not to use my moon cup this month, so I could give the cloth sani pads a proper try out, and I was so impressed I really wish I'd given them a go sooner!
I realised pretty quickly, that if I put the pads in with the nap (the direction of the fuzz on the velour) laying so the smooth goes backwards, they do wriggle back a bit and I ended up getting leaks at the front; but once I'd figured that I've out and started putting them in the other way around, so the smooth direction was going forwards, I had no problems at all.
They were significantly less gross than I was expecting, especially given how moon cups can leave you looking like you've been sacrificing small rodents to Mother Nature! They are surprisingly absorbent, and I actually found I had less period pain or other PMS symptoms than usual. Cleaning them was a breeze, and for the first time ever I am actually slightly looking forward to my next visit from the period fairy, so I can use them again! Full marks, Cheeky Wipes!!
