The best idea in cloth menstrual pads: Knickernappies Stackable Mama Pads!
Stackable Mama Pads are a unique 3-in-1 system that will allow you to adjust absorbancy throughout your menstrual cycle without having to buy several sizes of pads. One Stackable pad can be a pantiliner, regular pad, and heavy pad.
Each complete pad set includes an outer shell and two liners. One liner is small for light days, one is larger for regular days, and using both together is great for heavy days. Both pads snap securely onto the shell so you'll never need to buy a different size of shell...every Knickernappies Stackable pad fits onto every shell!
With the Stackable system, you will likely only need a few shells since the shell only needs to be changed if it gets soiled. Otherwise, just unsnap the soiled pad and snap on a fresh one!
The outer shell is very thin, but waterproof, fleece. It won't slide around the way PUL pads can! Large pads are made from microfiber, hemp, and cotton/poly velour. (76% Combed Cotton/24% Polyester - the polyester is used only on the backside as a stabilizer.) Small pads are microfiber and velour. The velour against the skin is so soft and comfortable. Pads are very absorbant and comfortable to wear.
For women that prefer as natural a pad as possible, we now have hemp/hemp pads! These feature the same velour top and the same fleece shell, but instead of microfiber for the absorbant layer, they have hemp!
Why a difference? Simply put...microfiber is both comfortable and affordable, while hemp is all-natural and a little trimmer. Both have great absorbancy. Now you can choose the fabric that is best for you!
Washing instructions: rinse pads with cold water to prevent staining. Then place into diaper pail or into a separate pail or wetbag. Pads do not need soaking. Wash with diapers or separately...cold rinse with no detergent followed by a hot wash with 1/2 the recommended amount of detergent. Dry in dryer or hang to dry.
