This isn’t a post about why you should use cloth pads/pantyliners. That’s obvious. It’s better for both you and the planet. Instead, this is a post about the different times/experiences when you can use them. They’re not just for the last day in your cycle! You can get so many more uses out of them. So below I bring you: 5 Uses for Cloth Pantyliners.

5 Uses for Cloth Pantyliners

  • The Beginning or End of your Cycle: The first and last days of my period aren’t even enough to wear my Lunette Cup or even a tampon (I’m still trying to finish the box I have. Don’t want to be wasteful). So a cloth pantyliner is the perfect solution. It’s enough protection so that I don’t ruin any underwear, but not too thick of a pad to feel like I’m sitting on a pillow.
  • Menstrual Cup Back Up: I still consider myself a newbie when it comes to using menstrual cups, so I tend to have leaks here and there. Whether that’s user error or the specific cup I’m using – I have no clue. But, I like to wear a cloth pantyliner just in case.
  • Everyday Freshness: You know, there’s just times in your cycle where you have more discharge than others (like when you’re ovulating). It’s totally normal and a cloth pantyliner totally comes in handy.
  • Light Incontinence: Many women experience some incontinence after giving birth. Luckily, this never happened to me, but a cloth pantyliner can help keep your pants dry when you cough or laugh.
  • Pregnancy Discharge (Leukorrhea): Cloth pantyliners can even be used when you’re pregnant!

Pink Lemonade Shop

Pink Lemonade Shop carriers a wide variety of cloth pads. You can find something to suit your needs no matter what level of absorbency you’re looking for. See this post for more info on all the different types. Most of my cloth pad stash consists of pantyliners – all handmade by this wonderful WAHM.

You have a few different options when you go to purchase her cloth pantyliners – length and width sizes. You can choose either the mini (6 inches long) or the regular length (7.5 inches long). I have a variety of both and don’t really have a preference one way or the other. You can also choose 2 different width options – original (2 inches) and wide (2.5 inches). All the ones pictured here are original width. They work well for me most of the time, but with some underwear I think I’d prefer a wider width.

You’ll find different fabric options, too. Minky, cotton, and bamboo velour in a variety of prints. Most of mine are minky and those are the ones I like the best. So soft. All her pantyliners are backed with water-resistant windpro fleece. I’ve never had an incident where anything seeped through the bottom of the pad.

Overall, I haven’t experienced any problems with these pantyliners at all. They work well, are well made, and they’ve held up to repeated washings without any issues. 2 thumbs up!

Can you think of any other uses for cloth pantyliners? If you haven’t given them a try, you definitely should. It’s a small first step to “greening” your period and it’s totally worth it.

Buy it

You can purchase cloth pantyliners, like the ones I reviewed, at my affiliate Pink Lemonade Shop for about $5 a piece depending on size, fabric, etc. A stash of these will end up costing you way less than buying a box of disposables every month.

Comments

  1. I have never tried cloth pads or liners but I think I am ready to take the plunge! Disposable pads are so expensive and it would be nice to not have so much synthetic material/chemicals around my body.

  2. I got my first cloth pads a few months ago and I love them! However I only have 4 and I would like to get more so I don’t have to use any disposables at all!

  3. More liners and pads

  4. I’d love to win these! I have been trying to change to green living a bit at a time…and these would help tremendously. Thank you!

  5. Lindsay Coffman says:

    I used mama cloth postpartum with baby #2 & LOVED IT. So much better than disposable.

  6. Sarah Hayes says:

    I have a couple like this but havent been able to use them yet. they look really nice

  7. I am just getting started with cloth pads and a menstrual cup and would like to add these to my small collection! I love Pink Lemonade Shop’s selection of products!

  11. Danielle F says:

    I haven’t tried cloth pads, so I’d love to win this so that I can give them a go.

  12. Katherine Blankenship says:

    I haven’t tried mama cloth yet but I really want to. If I win this it would definitely help push me to switch!

  13. Alice Beerland says:

    oo I loved the Set of 3 7.5 Inch Surprise Colors Hand Dyed Bamboo Jersey Regular Pantyliners with Fleece backs – Wide Width. I will take this if I win!

  14. I stocked up on cloth pads during black friday/cyber monday sales. I got a few from a few different places, but Pink Lemonade is by far my favorite. I would definitely recommend these if you are looking to switch.

  15. More liners.

  16. Shana Trahan says:

    I started using cloth/cup after my cycle returned from bf’ing my son, and I don’t know if it really is the cloth or just hormonal changes, but the pain is pretty much gone! Still getting used to the cup, but some fancy cloth from pink lemonade would be great!

  17. Christina G. says:

    I’m so glad cloth pads are becoming more mainstream. The disposables are so expensive. Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. Natasha Harris says:

    If I won I would buy some pantiliners to use now during my pregnancy, and a postpartum pad to try after. I’ve never used cloth pads, even though we currently cloth diaper. Thanks for the chance!

  22. I love my cloth pads, and I could certainly refresh my bunch. They are so much more comfortable and breathable than disposable. I actually cloth diaper because I understand the difference in feel between cloth and disposable.

    I have been wanting to give cloth pantyliners a try…I have heard how much more comfortable they are.
