Cloth menstrual pads is something I have been interested in for a while now. I always hated those plastic sticky pads that never seemed to fit right or was just plain irritating and have been curious about the cloth pads I have heard so many good reviews about. After much thought and research I have decided to start the new year with a change of pads  Wink Grin

I noticed that some time ago there was a Cloth Pad Swap. While there was not many people involved it still looked like everyone had a lot of fun and got some pretty new pads to boot.

Is there any other cloth pad users or people interested in switching to cloth pads that would like to do a swap?  Huh Grin

Nice to see I am not the only one out there interested.  Grin

There are so many differnt styles of cloth pads out there too. I wondered which ones worked best, since there are so many tutorials with different styles. I do not have access locally to PUL but I did see one tutorial were they used ripstop as the waterproof liner. I am researching textiles used for cloth pads, which ones worked the best and was most comfortable.. I will more than likely make several test dummies to see which styles work the best and with which textile. My poor fiance will probably think I have lost it.  Roll Eyes Wink

Yea! Another interested person....

Sounds like the pamper your lady bits swap was a fun success. Sorry I missed out on that one but who knows if more people pop up wanting to join I might get my chance to have some of that pampering action.  Grin
