Title: Cloth Pad Giveaway
Post by: Frugal Upstate on January 28, 2013, 08:10:00 AM
Hey ladies--just came across this giveaway for 10 cloth feminine protection pads.  It's not my blog or giveaway--but I just figured that there might be some folks here who would be interested in entering:

I've considered the whole cloth pad thing before (and I'm sure there MUST be a thread on here somewhere about that as well as the Diva Cup etc) but I just haven't made the jump.  Maybe if I won a set. . .

Thanks for sharing this. If anyone is on the fence about trying them - I say go for it! They're WAY more comfortable than commercial pads.
I'm not entering because I've been a cloth convert for 20+ years and with the way my pads hold up, I simply don't need any more. (though I will admit I will sometimes make some new pads if I see a cute or funky flannel that I like.)  8)

If you have not tried them. TRY THEM! Your body will thank you for it.

On a side note. Neighbors will have no clue what they are even if they see them and stepkid boys just think they are pocketliners and question why you have so many pocketliners which come out of clothing in the wash.

Another endorsement here. So superior to the common product.

For those of you who don't know....


Every single one of my female friends who were having 'female issues' had all of those issues clear up as soon as they started using cloth pads after I recommended them.

I guess I got interupted on that thought (not sure why with the kidlet, 4 cats learning to get along and Z asking when the Farm Conference is)... but I MEANT..

Neighbors will have no clue what they are even if they see them hanging on the line. I used to hang them on a line on the balcony even when I lived at an apt.

Another endorsement. Wish I started using them 20 years ago.

I totally agree!  If you have ever cloth diapered, then you can totally use mama cloth.  One thing that I have not seen said is that switching to cloth often leads to a lighter flow.

My favorites come from www.HomesteadEmporium.com.  I host co-ops for her a couple times a year (15-20% discount).

Anyone use family cloth, instead of TP?  My kids use it almost exclusively.  It is more difficult to change adult habits.

I use the diva cup plus cloth liners and will NEVER go back.  Life altering - seriously.  If I go through a season where I can't use the diva cup for whatever reason, I would definitely use cloth pads.  Give it a try!

Wow, THANK YOU for posting this, I am definitely going to make the switch.  Hate the little store bought ones anyway.  Anybody ever try making their own?
