Thread: Cloth Pads Help Please

  1. #1

    Question Cloth Pads Help Please

    I ordered some of e-bay to try out and get started before committing completely I ordered a set of 6 pads. I need help trying to figure out a good amount of them I figure 6 would be good for one day and use a disposable at night while the are in the wash to wash all at once but, I am not sure how many to order if I love them I was thinking maybe 20-30? Ideas?

    i built up my stash very slowly. I have over 30 now but I don't use them all every cycle and I often wash every other day. I dont have a particularly heavy cycle either, so that would factor into things too.

    DO they have pul or some other waterproof barrier? I just can't see practicality of them without it, but then again I've never liked pads either. =/

    All of mine have fleece as a barrier. I have never had an issue with leaks with cloth pads. I can't stand disposable pads, and I don't think these really compare. Since switching to cloth (and a cup sometimes), my periods have been lighter and less painful.

    TO the OP, I know some people do not like PUL in their pads because it isn't very breathable. If you find that you do not like it, give fleece a try It doesn't bother some people though

    Thanks yeah I was going to give it a try- the seller has all fleece too.

    I've also heard it shouldn't disturb the natural PH balance though I might be wrong about that. I don't really like using tampons either unless I swim but, they've never been that comfortable for me.

    I use roughly 8-10 a cycle but have a stash of 20 pads, not including liners which I use everyday. Mine are fleece backed, no pul & also rarely have leaks. I have light, normal, heavy & PP of various lengths. I only use traditional pads if I'm traveling for more than a couple days or on long drives when I'm heavy as I pass huge clots.
