There is no smell, except the natural smell of having a period. It would be pretty hard to smell that if you change a pad regularly.  Our society somehow makes us think we have to mask everything.  Just rinse the fresh blood from the pads and you won't have any odor problems.  Since I'm not spending a fortune throwing pads away, I actually change cloth pads more often than I did with disposable ones.  I'm not throwing the money away and it's so easy just to put a fresh one on when I go to the bathroom.

thanks for this!  Grin
the same thing happens to me with leakage Undecided, and such.
im making some cloth ones at the moment!  Cheesy

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

I've been thinking about cloth pads for awhile. I mean I cloth diaper my kid, but then use store bought pads or tampons? Come'on! So I'm happy to report that you pushed me over the edge and I sewed up about 4 so far..and I LOVE them!
So thank you!

I'm really really happy to make my first craftster post on this thread!  thanks for the ideas and the info, especially OP.

I bought washables from weenotions (UK) last year and I've been so pleased with them that I'm now making my own. I've managed to buy some pul and some pretty microfleece, and will use old towels for inner layering.

Dont have periods anymore but I do need help with bladder leakage; I have allergic reactions to a lot of store bought sanpro and it was such a relief to use the washable.

I hate to think how much I've spent over a lifetime for disposable sanpro and even worse to think of how much I've sent to landfill.

economically sound, environmentally friendly and pretty as you want to make them!!!!

I have been flirting with the idea of using cloth pads for years now. I would research them, look around at different people who make and sell them and for some reason would talk myself out of it. I would get the thoughts of leakage or wonder how horrible it would feel to sit on something that wasn't absorbing well. After reading through ever single post I am now sold on giving it a go!

I will be stopping off at the store tonight and seeing if I can find some materials for a set of my own! Thanks so much everyone  Grin

i was going to say something "doctorly" about too, go see your doctor when you have problems or when you think thing aren't very "normal" (please Wink ) maybe there's a solution, or you can avoid something serious Smiley

i envy some girls that say that when they sleep the don't even need to change pads before going to bed Tongue
i'm not that heavy though, i kinda get used to sleeping on my side when i'm with my period (weird but it kinda works, i don't move to much while sleeping)

great work!!

I wish wish wish I'd had the internet when I was a teen, but not for myself- for my mum. she had endometrium hyperplasia and basically was a shade away from needing a transfusion every month to keep her going. she was forever leaking and these would have done the job so well....

oh well. she's had a hysterectomy now.

I would like to try these but my worry is sewing through all of those layers -- has any one had any trouble sewing these on their sewing machines?


Ok, so I am the crazy cat lady.  Live with it.
