About this product
These pads are all great for heavy flow, overnight coverage or for use during those postpartum days.
The top: all pads are cotton polyester knit topped. This patterned side is the one that touches your skin.
The core: moderate flow cloth pads have one layer of Zorb and one layer of cotton batting. Heavy and overnight flow pads have two layers of Zorb. Zorb is a product made of cotton, bamboo, polyester and other cellulose fibres which results in its ability to absorb 10x its weight in 20 seconds. These pads are all 2.5” at the narrowest point where the snaps join underneath your underwear.
The backing: the white backing tells you that this set of pads features a hidden layer of polyurethane laminate (PUL) which allows the pad to function as closely to a disposable in terms of its ability to keep moisture away from your underwear. The flow will not touch your underwear and will stay in the core. It will eventually need to be changed, as the core can only absorb so much.
For all cloth reusable pads in my shop, the flow absorbency legend is as follows:
A purple tag indicates light flow
Red tag indicates moderate flow
Blue tag indicates heavy flow
Orange tag indicates heavy flow in a longer or overnight length (12-16”).
Wash: when out of the house, you can store used pads without rinsing in a pad wrapper until you get home. Alternatively, rinse pads in cold water immediately after use and store in wet bag (see our laundry, care and storage section) until washing day. Use low residue detergent or soap nuts on cold or warm water and follow with medium to high dryer, no fabric softener.
Recommend: Lift all natural stain stick from MilkHoneySoapery on Etsy. This will keep your pads looking beautiful and can even be used on any other stains in your household!
