God bless tampons Lips sealed

here here!  Cheesy

one question though. this might be a bit crass of me, what in the world do you do with them when you need a change and aren't at homw? like...stick them in your purse for safekeeping or something (not an idea I'm a big fan of). I'm considering making my own, but I don't have the schedule to stay at home whenever the painters come calling...

A question for anyone, I'm wondering if anyone has tried making these cloth pads scented with dried rosemary or lavender for in between the menstral cycle, or for those of us who are happily on the other side of the road now!! LOL (I stopped very young!) They would be sort of a cloth panty liner, probably much more snuggly than the tiny patch of cotton in most undies!
Any thoughts??

Well, I keep a ziploc bag in my purse, and it works well - no air, no blood smell - as long as you remember to take them out and soak them when you get home.   Hell, I've even wrapped them in paper towels.  I guess I don't think there's anything shameful about a period - and one of the many reasons I switched to cloth is because I hate how our american society behaves as if a period is shameful and something to hide.  I'm not going to go around telling people, "I have my period, look at the blood!" or anything.  But I also refuse to feel embarrassed or disgusted by that blood more than any other blood that comes out of my body.  So if someone happens to catch a glimpse of my ziploc baggie and bloody pad and they are offended or grossed out - well, no one is making them offended but themself.  *shrug*

As you can tell, it's something I feel pretty strongly about... Wink

I tend to shy away from scented anything (even essential oils) around my delicate bits.  But snuggly is always good!  Wink

I think your recycled pads are fabulous! The quilting pattern seems to be almost the same as real female genitalia which makes me giggle.


glad i wasnt the only one giggling...

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.
