I don’t mind washing my new pads at all. I feel good because I am not hurting the earth by throwing so much waste. It’s also the MOST COMFORTABLE i’ve ever felt in years. No yucky feeling, no skin friction and sticky sensation. It’s as if i don’t have my period at all. I am a happy customer.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I ordered the EcoPads, other than having the high hopes of doing at least a little bit for the environment on the area of my period. I would say that I have about average flow, usually about 3-4 days of varying needs for protection and I've now had 2 cycles to test these.
+ Extremely soft and comfortable material (beats all regular pads hands down)
+ Feels very comfortable on (for the most part*)
+ Pretty good size (for my liking, could've maybe been a bit longer still)
+ Wet Bag can be handy when out and about
+ Definitely very absorbent - and keeps you feeling dry!
- Sliding about when pulling panties on - this can make the pad sit at the wrong spot
- The fastening of the pad managed to break the seam in my bike shorts, maybe that's my fault for having thick thighs?
- Probably not tight clothing friendly - I generally felt like wearing skirts and dresses was the better idea as I was convinced these would be quite noticeable underneath pants made of non-denim materials
- As someone who doesn't own a washing machine, washing these by hand was definitely not my favorite part (I can only get to a machine about once a week) and I felt like there were always pads either soaking in my bathroom or needing a wash or drying around the apartment somewhere, but this again is more of a me problem
The best part though? Sleeping with these bad boys was a JOY. No rustling, no unpleasant feeling, no... steamy... nether regions... Just wonderful. For that alone, I would recommend. (And of course Mother Nature thanks you!)
I wish the tabs to hold then were longer with a button both in the front and back. Mine flips and hit the toilet seat, which can be very gross.
I didn't think I'd believe it, but here I am using reusable pads. As an athlete, environmentally conscious human and raising a daughter, I love these!
They help minimize odor, control all leakage and even seem to minimize cramps and length of my periods.
