Reusable Cloth Sanitary Pads: The Basics
We are gearing up to launch our line of reusable sanitary pads and thought you all might be interested in understanding the basics. Some of our fans are already avid reusable sanitary pad users, but if you are new to cloth pads, it can seem like a lot to understand. So, here is the low down:
Who uses cloth sanitary pads?
There is no “type” of person who uses cloth sanitary pads. Reusable cloth sanitary pads are for anyone who has a period. People use them for many reasons with the most common being environmental and health reasons. You can read more about the benefits here.
What are cloth sanitary pads?
Reusable cloth sanitary pads are a reusable form of period protection. They work just like a disposable sanitary pad except you wash and reuse them rather than throw them away after a single use. They come in varying fabrics and absorbencies and usually have a waterproof layer to protect your undergarments from becoming soiled. They also usually have wings with poppers (snaps) that you attach around your underwear gusset.
Where can you buy cloth sanitary pads?
Cloth sanitary pads are primarily available online, but are also available in a select number of retail stores. Fialuna's line of reuable sanitary pads will be available here on our website in a few months.
