Blossom Menstrual Cloth Pads #mamacloths
This is a set of Blossom’s Animal Print Mama Cloths. They are available as a set of 5 – the perfect number to get started (if you are new to reusable menstrual pads. These are not disposable – they are washable and reusable made of washable charcoal bamboo, microfiber and waterproof minky (backing) to prevent leaks. They are complete with two sets of snaps to insure they remain secure when in use.
A little over a year ago I made the switch to reusable pads and I have never looked back! I have even made my own before but honestly I don’t have the time to make these in bulk and buying them is so much easier – so after that first batch, I no longer make them.
I was skeptical for a long time but suffered from negative reactions to disposable pads. I dreaded this time every month because of the side effects from disposables. I put off making the transition far too long because I thought the reusable pads would be difficult to use at work, beach, on the road or anywhere other than home. But nope – it is no more difficult than disposables and other than me announcing it on my blog to the world – no one knows anything different.
Blossom Menstrual Cloth Pads:
Don’t cost me a bunch of money each month. The investment is one time and can virtually last a lifetime.
Are safer for the environment
Are healthier for you – I am allergic to just about everything it seems and these are the perfect solution
Are much more comfortable than anything disposable. Seriously – don’t you just hate using disposable pads and how yucky they feel? These are so comfortable you will want to use them even when you don’t need to!
Have an outer layer that is waterproof
Are available in attractive patterns
And this last one will shock you – are far more absorbent than disposable. This made me extremely nervous but I kid you not when I tell you they work so much better! The Charcoal Bamboo is super absorbent and neutralizes odor plus the dark color is very forgiving of stains
Lastly – they fold right up and snap closed to remain discrete
Now how do you actually survive with reusable mama cloths?
First you carry them in some sort of a pouch in your purse. For me I use two waterproof pouches – one for the clean ones and one for the used pads. The waterproof pouch doesn’t need to be anything special – I purchased the three packs of reusable sandwich bags from Walmart – I think they were like $4.
Then when you go to the restroom you can simply hand wash the pad you are removing. Even if it is just warm water at this point – clean it until the water runs clear. If you do not discretely have access to a sink – then fold up and snap, place into your waterproof bag until you can hand wash them. After washing, fold up and snap closed and place in waterproof bag. When you get home at night just place the hand rinsed/washed pads into a hosiery bag and wash in your regular washer cycle. If you are like me there is always a ton of laundry to do. Easy peasy.
