Menstrual Color Cotton Pads - 3 - Pack


Pros: Natural, soft, available in many stores

Cons: no waterproof lining, bunches up

When I switched to natural menstrual products, these are the first things I bought. At first I loved them: the natural fibers were so much softer and more breathable than the icky plastic pads, and they were easy to wash and care for. But after a few washes, the cover got wrinkled and wouldn't lay flat anymore, even with the liners in place. The inserts also didn't provide enough absorption: stand up once on CD 1 or 2 and you need to change your underwear. There's also no waterproof liner to help keep the fluid from soaking through the pad. I have since bought some WAHM pads that were less expensive, MUCH more comfortable, and more effective, so I wouldn't recommend Gladrags.
Menstrual Color Cotton Pads - 3 - Pack

GladRags Color Day Pads Our most popular and versatile pad in packs of one or three! Each Day Pad includes: 1 Holder (approximately 9" long and 2 1/2" wide) 2 Inserts GladRags holders are made out of comfortable cotton flannel fitted with a snap and “envelope” for the inserts. GladRags inserts consist of super-absorbent terry cloth and flannel for maximum protection. Lasting for years, GladRags are easy on your budget, while also using minimal resources. To Use GladRags Washable Menstrual Pads: 1. Place 1 or 2 of the inserts inside the holder. 2. Turn your GladRag over. Snap it around your underwear. The tag side goes next to your underwear and the smooth side goes next to your body. 3. Change your GladRag (holder and inserts) about as often as you would change a disposable pad. Prints:
