If AF ever comes back I will be using Luna Pads again. My teenage daughters use them, too!
One benefit that I received from switching to cloth is that my periods were MUCH lighter and lasted less time. I used to bleed heavily for 5-7 days, but after two months of using cloth I was down to medium-light bleeding for 3-4 days. I've only had 5 periods in the last 6 years (thanks to nursing and pregnancy), so I don't know if it would have eventually gotten even better.
We just rinse them and throw them into plastic boxes that are under the sinks in our bathrooms, then wash them on hot with a load of towels at the end of the period. Well, actually, I think one of my daughters just throws hers in with her regular laundry, but I like to wash mine on hot. As long as they are rinsed out really well, they'll be okay to sit for a few days.
