Reusable Sanitary Pads - Standard Flow | Candy Cat Pins
The reusable sanitary pads from Candy Cat Pins are designed to replace disposable sanitary care, by offering a machine washable alternative which can be used over and over again. This will save you so much money in the long run, and is also fantastic for the environment as heaps of used disposable pads will be saved from landfill, where they sit polluting the earth for centuries to come.
The pads are available in a number of funky designs, and are silky on the outside and lovely and soft on the inside. They are super absorbent and come in 3 sizes- liner (light flow), standard (heavy flow), and maxi (night).
We advise you to also invest in a few Candy Cat Pins wet bags, so that you can store used pads at home and when you're out and about.
Use & Care Instructions:
To use a pad, lie it fleece side up and fasten it to the underneath of your underwear using the poppers
After light soiling, wash in the machine with your usual laundry
After heavy soiling, rinse in warm water first before adding to your laundry
Best washed without fabric softener at 40c
Line dry or tumble dry on a low heat
Which pad is right for me?
The Liner pad (click here to view this product) is suitable for light flow, and measures approximately 22cm x 16cm including the wings.
The Standard pad (the product you are currently viewing) is suitable for medium-heavy flow, and measures 25cm x 17cm including the wings.
The Maxi pad (click here to view this product) is suitable for very heavy / night flow, and measures 27cm x 17cm including the wings.
The size will vary as the pads are all handmade. The size may decrease slightly in the first wash.
The pads are made using PUL (Polyurethane Laminate), Zorb and microfleece. The outer PUL layer is waterproof, and is similar to the material used on reusable nappies. The Zorb fabric is super absorbent, and generally traps moisture 10x it's weight - 20x faster than cotton, bamboo or hemp knits. The microfleece inner fabric is incredibly soft and comfortable against your skin. Wearing one of these pads will feel much nicer than the disposable alternatives! As the materials used contain polyester and other plastic-based materials, the pads are not biodegradable. So need to be disposed of either in the black bin, or clean pads could be placed in mixed fabrics recycling bins.
