Reusable Cloth Menstrual Pad | Mild-Moderate Flow



MILD FLOW MENSTRUAL PAD
Reusable + machine-washable + dryer-safe

Reusable cloth pads are an alternative to landfill-polluting, ocean-polluting, high-carbon-footprint, single-use, menstrual care products.

Our menstrual cloth pads are breathable, absorbent, comfortable, and come in a black and grey minimal design. The absorbent side that comes into contact with the body is plain grey, making it easy to monitor menstrual health. The outer layer of the pad is made of waterproof material, preventing any leaks. Our pads clasp securely around the underwear's crotch panel, and are not dislodged by bodily movement.

Minimal AF, breathable, and leak-proof!

Mild-moderate flow pads are great for use toward the tail end of your menstrual cycle. For heavier days, (usually the first few days,) we advise the use of our heavy flow pads instead. If this is your very first time to try cloth menstrual pads, we also suggest trying the heavy flow pads instead, or at least including one heavy flow pad in your order.

One order is inclusive of one cloth mild flow menstrual pad. Please see product and shipping information in the tabs below. 

A cloth pad or a pasador is a reusable alternative to disposable menstrual care products. Compared to the menstrual cup, the cloth pad is an easy environment-conscious menstrual care tool to switch to.

LAYER 1
Unlike disposable pads and tampons, cloth pads don't expose your body for extended durations to any harsh/harmful/hormone-inhibiting chemicals. The grey textile that comes into contact with the skin is bamboo charcoal fiber- a breathable, highly absorbent, and moisture-regulating material that is great even for very sensitive skin.

LAYER 2
Within the cloth pad are 2 layers of microfiber for the fast absorption and containment of liquid.

LAYER 3
The black outermost layer of our cloth pad that comes into contact with the underwear is made of PUL (Polyurethane Laminate) — a waterproof barrier that prevents any leaks.

Our cloth pads come in two variants. What's available on this page is the mild-moderate flow variant. If you are looking for the heavy-flow variant, please click here instead.

OUR MILD-MODERATE FLOW PAD
The mild-moderate flow pad is great for use toward the tail end of the cycle. (It is comparable to size 1 commercial sanitary pads with wings.)

Length: 22.5 cm
Width: 16.5 cm

FIRST USE
Please make sure to launder the cloth pad before use.

TO WASH
Squeeze the pad under cold/tap running water after use. (To conserve water, you may also squeeze the pad in a basin after use.) Once the water runs clear, you can you throw the pad in the washing machine with the rest of your laundry, or hang it to dry until laundry day, if you aren't doing laundry anytime soon.

TO DISINFECT
If you're feeling a little extra and would like to disinfect or soak the pads, there are a number of environment-friendly substitutes to bleach that you can use. You can soak the pad in water with some white vinegar. Or soak the pad in water with some baking soda. Or soak the pad in water with some salt. Just choose 1 combination— don't mix and match. 

Though our cloth pads aren't prone to odours or stains, it would benefit you to know that salt is great for removing stains, vinegar is great at neutralizing odours, and baking soda is great for both. All three are great antimicrobial cleaning agents.

Alternatively, instead of soaking the pad, you can also just chuck the pad in the washing machine with your clothes and put a scoop of baking soda (or vinegar) in your laundry load. Do not use bleach or fabric conditioner as this may ruin the absorbency of the pad.

TO DRY
The most zero waste waste way to both dry and disinfect your pads is by drying them under the sun. However, for those who do not have access to a space where they can sun-dry their pads, drying them in a dryer works too. Our reusable cloth pad is dryer safe. Just don't iron the pad, as ironing may ruin the waterproofing of the pad.

    PACKAGING
    Please expect all items to be packaged in very minimal used / recycled / secondhand paper bags or cardboard boxes. We try to minimize our carbon footprint where we can, when we can, and as much as we can, and refuse to procure new packaging materials for our products. Rule #1 of Zero Waste is REFUSE. All single-use packaging materials, no matter how compostable, take an inordinate amount of resources (e.g. water, fuel, electricity, trees, etc.) to manufacture. This is why we prefer to solicit used paper bags and boxes via Buhay Zero Waste Preloved, an online decluttering and dumpster-diving platform that we run. Our parcels don't always look pretty, but they have a much much smaller impact on the environment than most product packaging out there claiming to be "eco-friendly."
