This week I will be featuring four different products that are available to use for our monthlys. They are all reusable! Every women has their own preferences and I hope I can help you switch from disposable pads and tampons to be more green! And even better to SAVE MONEY! A great start to this event with one of my favorite products – Tree Hugger Cloth Pads – or Mama Cloth as it is also called.
I featured Crystal, the wonderful mama who makes these pads, last September when I tried mama cloth for the very first time. It was a cloth diaper experience all over again. Why did I wait so long to try these out?!!
Why do I think Tree Hugger is the best? Lots of reasons!
~ handmade. I love supporting wahms.
~ minky. Not only are they super soft but they do NOT stain. I have used each of my pads 2-3 times per cycle for a year now and they look as good as new. Promise!
~ cute. You know me, the cuter the better! Yes even my mama cloth is more fun cute!
~ comfortable. I’m more of a pad girl then tampons so one of the first things I ever noticed was how much more comfy it was to wear days worth of minky pads vs plastic disposables.
~ easy. Keep a wet bag next to my potty. In goes the pad when I’m finished with it. I can toss the bag in any load of laundry – diapers, towels, and yes even clothes. They come out wonderfully and so does the rest of your stuff.
When you go out you may want a purse-sized wet bag which is also sold at Tree Hugger. See Crystal has thought of everything!
Have I convinced you to try them? What else do you need to know? Ask me!
WIN a few to try!
A heavy flow pad, a light flow pad, and a pantyliner
Edited to add years later: Still use Tree Hugger every single month!
