I saw these thing over and over again over here at craftster, but I have one question.

Why would you still use these things if there is a disposable version? Truly, doesn't this just give a huge mess to clean up after they're used?
I've never seen anyone with them, ever, but that could be because I'm from holland xD

Well, I msut say that I'm really curious now.

I've used a broken umbrella's nylon for my waterproof lining.  I use these cause I'm allergic to the disposable ones.  They aren't too messy.  I just throw mine in the wash and they come clean.  To avoid straining I'd soak in cold was till washed, but if they get stained only you see the things anyway.  I love this tutorial.  I've made them before, but this design is better!!!

More often than not I think people prefer cloth pads for he environmental factor. Less waste, for certain. Some folks have allergies to pads, and some folks just prefer the way fabric feels. It's entirely a personal preference thing. Smiley

As the original receiver in a swap from onegroovyday, I'll point out some of the reasons I like these Smiley
1. Saves money on disposables. Personally I'd rather save my money to buy crafting supplies than lady products
2. Comfort! Having fabric against your skin is more comfortable than the disposable stuff
3. Allergies. My skin is so sensitive (the reason that I started making soap) I don't do well with anything odd touching my skin (I can't have metal, plastic, elastic, lace, etc etc touch my skin for prolonged times without getting a rash) so flannel and cotton pads make me happy!

Other reasons people like these are environmental reasons and concern that the adhesive and other chemicals in store bought pads are toxic for the body.

Oooh, good points! I forgot that they are supposed to be really, really cost effective!

I've heard they breath better than disposables, is that true? Nothing like that swampy feeling you get mid-day...  Lips sealed

I really like the way they feel compared to the disposable ones......my 11 year old daughter even likes them and shows them to her friends......

to cut down on the staining.....even though no one sees them.....I soak them in water and hydrogenperoxide.... and it seems to help a lot....
