I bought 2 pcs of Cloth Pads initially to try them out, just in case I'm not comfortable in using them.
After using them, I'm game. I'm now a Cloth Pad convert. Not fully yet though. Slowly.
The first time I've heard of Cloth Pads was when my best friend told me that her sis is using cloth pads. At that time, I was all in awe of her sis. I could not imagine anyone would want to use Cloth Pads instead of Disposables.
It is really irony that I am now one of the Cloth Pad fans!
I bought mine from Mama Patch when they were having their 1st Anniversary 28% sales off all items. They are all exclusively handmade and their designs and colours are simply irresistable.
The first time I used Mama Patch's Cloth Pads, the first difference I felt was 'no more plastic-sy feeling down there'.
It feels like I am just wearing another panty - so soft and comfortable.
Washing them is a breeze too.
Just rinse off the blood to remove stain. Then I dump it in a pail and wait for my next wash.
However, I do feel that fresh blood stain are easier to rinse off compared to stale brownish blood stain. Therefore, I opt to wear darker colour pads on lighter days.
I am happy with my decision to use Cloth Pads.
Besides environmental and economical benefits, I also feel healthier - no more plastic and chemical.
I also happen to feel good knowing that the pads I am wearing are so beautiful and colourful.
That makes me feel good. :D
