I have been using cloth pads for 6 months now... I will NEVER go back to disposables!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yes, the rinsing/washing isn't my favorite thing, but not sooo bad.  My periods are long, but light.

I am a wife of  11 years, mom to 4, barn boss to 8 cats and 40 chickens.    We live on 3 acres of heaven.... trying to live a simple life!

I just made a couple of these, and I have to say, I'm in love.  They're so comfy and I feel great about not throwing away all that stuff.

Super easy to make, too.  Now I just need a snap fastener that's geared toward utter morons.  Tongue

another thing, we only have 3 washers and 3 dryers, so when somebody's load is done, and they dont take it out right away, somebody else waiting for a machine will take it out and leave it on top of the washing machine so they can use it.  id have to guard my machine so nobody will find it and be like "eh?!?"  ~_~  which brings me to my next question:  machine dry, yes or no? because i have no idea where to hang them. i heard somewhere you can, if you don't use dryer sheets, but i dunno.
BUT i still really wanna do it, so ANY advise would be great!

I would used a zipped pillowcase to wash them in. They won't get lost, and no one can see them even when they are on top of the washing machine.

Just wanted to say that I think these are a great idea, and will be making some for myself. Maybe TMI, but I am allergic to something in disposable pads and get a horrendous rash, so these will be great!

What I have found to work really well is the following. We don't have a washer and dryer. I don't have a ton of pads. So As soon as I sit down, I take it off and throw it in the sink and turn on the water so its running on it. I use the bathroom and throw a new one on. I rinse the pad quickly and then spray it with simple green. This stuff is FANTASTIC at getting all the stains out. I then let the pad sit with the SG on it until the next time I use the bathroom. I usually rinse the SG out after rinsing and spraying the previous pad. It sounds like a lot, but it really doesn't take more than a minute if that. I then hang them on our cool octopus hanger I got at IKEA. Once my period is done, I throw them in a load with towels.

These are so cool. Ive wanted to make my own cloth pads for a while now, but we dont have a washing machine. Now Im seeing here that most people wash them out by hand? So, I guess I have no more excuses!

These look so great! I'd like to make some but the ones I bought a year ago are still in perfect condition, despite being used every month- so anyone worried about the effort of making them and if they will get stained- don't worry! The website I bought mine from also sell breathable waterproof fabric called PUL that you can use to make your own, if anyone is interested its http://www.weenotions.info/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=19&zenid=1marb3s6fr1ophe3r6i1akhhj2
