Description

Set of two fleece pads of one size: either 2x day or 2x night.

The fleece material continues on the wings, so you don’t have any of the cactus waterproof material against your skin.

This is something to look out for because the waterproof material is not breathable – it is not soft and it is not absorbing. In comparison: the wings of disposable pads are absorbing and that is the case with our fleece reusable period pads as well. The material of the pad continues on the side of the wings that touches the skin.

How to wash fleece reusable period pads

  • Wash before use
  • Wash at 20 or 30 °C
  • Dry on low heat or air dry
  • Do not use fabric softener or bleach
  • Do not iron

Reusable vs. disposable pads

Reusable period pads will be a bit more bulky than single-use period pads because they consists of several absorbent layers of fabric. In our experience, although it may feel bulky at first, you quickly get used to it. The cotton fabric is comfortable against your skin and breathable. If your skin gets irritated from traditional disposable period pads then we recommend cotton period pads.

What is the least noticeable to wear?

The products which you feel the least will be a period cup, period underwear and our extra thin reusable pantyliner. Once you have gotten used to a period cup and found the right size for you, most people barely feel it. Period underwear is, of course, just underwear with extra layers, so it does not feel too different from wearing regular underwear. Finally, our reusable pantyliner is extra thin, a lot thinner than other reusable pantyliners we have tried in fact, so, once you get used to it, you barely notice it. Especially if you are a person who loves wearing 100% cotton underwear, we recommend this pantyliner, possibly in combination with the cup.

Maintenance, staining

On light colours, blood will leave stains when washed in hot water. If you don’t care about staining then feel free to wash period pads with your regular load. If you are looking for a darker colour, we have the dark grey fleece pads. The period cup is also very easy to maintain: rinse it with cold water any time you take it out and after your period, boil it for 10 minutes. The cold water rinse will prevent staining.

Heavy flow

For very heavy flow days we recommend:

  • The Lunette cup model 2 (but if you are a starter, we recommend first trying the smaller model 1)

And in terms of period pads:

The largest, most absorbent reusable period pads are the Night Fleece pads. Fleece is a little more absorbent than cotton. However, be aware that the fleece pads tends to be warmer to wear than cotton pads due to the fleece material and due to the thick waterproof layer on the outside, rather than a more breathable waterproof layer inside the cotton pads.

The logistics: use, washing, drying

Unlike disposable pads, you will be washing and drying these reusable cloth pads between uses. Keep this in mind so that you don’t run into any surprises, such as a situation where all your period pads are sitting in your laundry basket when you need one. 😉 How many reusable pads you need will depend on your cycle.

Double sided fashion tape

Some people experience cloth pads moving around. This may depend on a lot of factors, not everyone does. If you notice this is an issue for you, there’s a simple solution: double sided fashion tape. You can buy it at any drugstore and it is inexpensive. Usually this tape is used to tape an item of clothing onto your skin and it also works fine to tape your cloth pad against your underwear.

Baby powder

A lot of people find that cloth pads result in less odor than disposable pads because the chemicals in disposable pads may react with the blood. Nevertheless, if you do experience an odor issue, you can switch out the pads more often (use a wet bag if you are on the go), or apply a deodorising  powder such as baby powder.

  • Size of the Day Pad: 18 x 25 cm
  • Size of the Night Pad: 18 x 30 cm
  • All materials in this product are synthetic
  • Layer against the skin: fleece
  • Absorbent layer; microfiber
  • Waterproof layer: PUL
  • Note that the waterproof layer is airtight and the fleece tends to be a bit warmer when wearing than cotton

Washable bamboo face rounds

White will stain

If staining is an issue for you then we recommend choosing our darker colour pads.
With the hemp face rounds you can expect staining.
They are not stain proof and they are white, so stains will show clearly.

Layers

  • The hemp face wipes have 3 layers
  • The bamboo washable make-up remover wipe have 2 layers.
  • The hemp wipe layers are firmly attached
  • The bamboo other wipe layers are only attached via the stitch around the edges so the layers may slide over one another a bit while you are using them

Wash bag, bamboo terry

This set of 20 wipes contains not only bamboo velour, but also 13 wipes which have one side made of bamboo terry. This set also includes a mesh wash bag with zipper.

A period cup can be used with an iud

Yes,, you can. Below are 6 tips from Lunette, a trusted Finnish period cup brand, to make sure your iud and period cup work harmoniously together.

  1. It’s important you check the length of the string of your IUD. Also, that the device can move slightly. Be sure to check it regularly and ask your doctor if you’re unsure.
  2. When using a menstrual cup, the string ideally sits above or inside of the cup. You can double check this after inserting your menstrual cup by running your finger around the edge and making sure you can’t feel the string.
  3. Your menstrual cup forms a slight suction on the walls of the vagina (which is how it sits nice, snug, and leak-free!). Lunette menstrual cups are designed to be super smooth with a good softness so it shouldn’t pinch your IUD string.
  4. If the string is too long you can also ask your doctor to shorten it a bit for you.
  5. Another thing to be a little more careful of is how you remove your menstrual cup if you do have an IUD. Since the menstrual cup creates that little bit of suction, you don’t want to forcefully remove it and accidentally tug on the IUD string. Generally we advise no forceful movements around that area anyway.

    There isn’t scientific proof that tampons or menstrual cups could increase early IUD expulsion rates. It’s important to break the seal of the cup as you are removing it which removes the suction effect. Squeeze the base of the cup as you are pulling it out to break the seal. For more information on inserting and removing your menstrual cup read our article ‘How to use the period cup ’.
  6. Generally it’s good to wait a couple of weeks after getting your IUD inserted to start using a menstrual cup. The risks of difficulties are the highest right at the start and it’s good to give yourself time.
    Have a chat with your doctor too so they can keep you advised and also possibly recommend shortening the IUD string length for you.

No. It is physically impossible for your period cup to mover further up than your cervix. See the pictures and continue reading for tips how to remove the cup.

Taking out your cup
Get comfortable, relax, sit down on the toilet or squat down and do a ‘poop-flex’ (tip from the video by Sarah Tran linked below, it works). Try it out and you will see the cup comes down to the point where you can grab the bottom easily with your fingers. A lot of people, over time, cut the stem shorter and finally cut it off entirely, because the stem may be uncomfortable. So, then you just grip the bottom of the cup itself which is ribbed for easy grip. For more tips see the videos below.

Here are some tips to prevent leaking.
You can also watch the more elaborate YouTube videos linked below.

  • Insert the cup part of the way, then twist. Next, check with your fingers around the rim to ensure there are no folds. Then, push it up from the bottom of the cup.
  • Ensure the little holes in the cup are always unclogged. Wash them out and blow in them.

There are several techniques you can use, hereby referred to as ‘folds’. A lot of people find the punch down fold and the seven fold the easiest, especially at the start, because it makes the front the smallest. Please see below for the different techniques.

    I have these and also the organic cotton pads and pantyliners, they are all good. My partner gets a bit weirded out by it, but that’s not really a pad a problem, it’s more a mentality thing 🙂
