  I totally agree! That's why I mentioned the *very, very slight chance* of infection and also that you never know what's on store bought pads. Moldy tampons - yuck - and that's not an isolated incident  either, it's happened with pads too. I would have to dig up references (nakking atm), but there have been cases of uterine infection and infections of stitches which traveled upwards into the yoni to the uterus that have been pinpointed somehow to using cloth pads pp...

I don't soak and I don't have stains. My pads are snow white.   I put my pads in a tiny wet bag that is the same color as the wall they hang on.
