The questions everyone’s asking

So many reasons, but for now we’ll stick to three…

1. Period peace of mind.

Our pads are made using high-quality fabrics that are as equally high in absorbency. Each of our *pads has been carefully designed using a different combination of fabrics to enable us to keep the pad as thin as possible whilst still offering maximum absorbency for the job in hand

With the winged, two popper design, our pads offer maximum security with minimum movement, so you can be confident they’re taking care of business, whether you’re chairing a meeting or binging on box sets,  confidence, and comfort is as important to us as it is to you, we’ve got your back on both counts

“As for the product-game changer!!! If these pads had been around my whole life using a disposable would not have been an option. They are so comfortable I forgot I was wearing one and I’m a cleaner so am always moving about. They’re not only comfy, they’re absorbent, stay in place and easy to clean.” – Trustpilot Customer Review

2. It’s the power to save the planet. In your pants.

If we’re going to protect our planet for future generations, we’re going to have to live more sustainably. Did you know that currently, 200,000 tones of menstrual waste is hitting UK landfills per year? Or that 4.8 pieces of menstrual waste is found per 100m of British beaches being cleaned? Or that it takes up to 800 years for a disposable pad to degrade due to all the single-use plastics in them (not to mention all the harmful chemicals *shudder*)? It’s all pretty scary when laid out like that but, we have the power to create change, whether that change is switching out 1 disposable pad to 1 reusable pad a month, or switching out all your disposable products for reusable ones, change is change and together our combined switches will make a huge global environmental change for good

Our Wear ’em Out pads can manage your period not just once, but again and again. Helping you take a giant leap toward cutting your personal contribution to landfills

3. You’ll be quids-in

‘If each woman uses between 11,000‐16,000 tampons and pads in their lifetime, that’s about 32 items per period’ – London Assembly

And that all adds up hitting you in the pocket, and our planet in the landfills

When using disposable menstrual products you are literally throwing money in the bin. If you have a good stock (around 6-12) of our reusable period pads, and if you care for them as we recommend they can last up to 4 years, this means that your initial investment will mean no more throwing money in the bin and will be saving you money in the long-term

Why not save your cash for something more exciting?

Our pads attach the same way that a disposable does. You simply put them into your pants and attach the popper wings on the underside making for a secure fit and then you’re good to go.

Our reusable period pads are recommended for everyday wear and have not been designed for exercise. Of course, you are free to try them out when you’re exercising or playing sport (make sure the pad is tucked upwards into the inner thigh crease, and that you wear tight-fitting underwear) but, please do bear in mind that this is not what they are intended for or been designed for and so we take no responsibility should the pads cause any discomfort or harm

Should you feel any discomfort or harm of any kind we recommend ending the use of the pads whilst you exercise

When you’re ready to change your pad give it a rinse in cold water to minimise staining and to remove excess blood, you can then set it aside for cleaning, you choose whatever option below works best with your lifestyle. After your pad is washed we recommend you give it some love when wet, a quick stretch and reshape, be aware that some very slight shrinkage may naturally occur after the first wash

You can hand-wash your pads in the bathroom sink with soap, wash and wear, cuts down on the water, electric and the number of pads you’d need (we wash ours in the shower with us #ecohack) and then treat them to a monthly spin in the machine at the end of our cycle and store them in our Storage Bag ready for next month

Alternatively, you can throw your pads in with the rest of your *dark-coloured laundry (up to 40oC). Your usual detergent will be fine, but DO NOT use fabric softener, as this will affect the pads absorbency

We recommend you air dry your pads, no direct heat as this may cause excessive shrinkage, airing cupboards are fine,  but no radiators/tumble dryers
When all freshened up, store your pads flat to help the pad maintain their shape
Cleaning is easy too, I keep a small tub of washing liquid in the bathroom and each morning throw the pads from the day/night before in the sink, give them a scrub and a rinse and pop them on the washing line, then when my period is finished they all go in the wash on 40°C (no softener!!) and back on the line. Done! – Trustpilot Customer Review 

This is really personal to the individual, it depends on how heavy your flow is and how long your period lasts. Our customers feedback that they change them less than they would a disposable as they are more absorbent, don’t irritate or smell bad.

If you’re looking to switch just when you’re at home or just at night-time maybe look at one of the Starter Packs (options for Lighter Flo or Heavier Flo kits) or if you’re all in ready to make a full-time switch then we’d recommend our pick and mix Bumper Pack this should cover your full cycle for many years to come, you can even top this up with a few more pads, if you feel the need

The materials we’ve chosen are naturally super absorbent, and our double-binding edges form a powerful seal that locks in moisture. But, just like normal pads, you’ll need to change your Wear ‘em Out pads to avoid leaks. How frequently you need to change them will depend on how heavy your flow is. After a few days of using the pads, you’ll soon have the measure of things

The pads are incredible, so comfy and so absorbent. I am a very heavy bleeder and I’ve not had a single leak. They wash and dry beautifully too.
For anyone wanting to make a change, these are a MUST! – Trustpilot Customer Review

It’s quick and easy to change your pad while on the go.

We have created a carry pouch that will slip seamlessly into your bag, and that won’t sound a klaxon when you take it out to pop to the loo

The pouch has 2 individual sections, one side labelled ‘clean me’ and the other labelled ‘wear me’, it does what it says on the tin, it has a zip across the top and poppers on the side making a secure seal and a size reducing option, it’s made of a washable, waterproof fabric so can stand up to the job it’s been created for and be thrown in your machine for a freshen up. The bag is small and discreet and will fit easily into most handbags

The pouch is available as an individual option to buy, and as a freebie when you go for one of our combination packs

Yes! Our Mini Flo & Medium Flo are the perfect reusable solutions for bladder leaks. They’ll keep you fresh, save you money, and are tonnes better for the environment. Plus, they don’t contain any single-use plastics or harsh chemicals that are found in lots of disposable pads

‘I bought a mini pad to try. Being menopausal I no longer require pads for periods but do have those oops moments that occur with age etc. Recently, I held on just a moment to long and felt a gush as I struggled with buttons and zips! I was amazed that the mini pad held – absolutely dry knickers and it was a definite gush not a trickle. The mini pad is very comfortable and I forget I have it on. It’s easy to wash and dry as well. I will be building up my stock’ – Trustpilot Customer Review

Yes! Our Mega Mega Flo pads have been designed with post-birth in mind, they are our hardest working and highest absorbency pads and are included alongside our Mega Flo in our Post-Birth Packs. Alternatively, you can buy them individually or stock up with a pick and mix 12 pad Bumper Pack and get 10% off each pad in the pack too

Or even nicer still, why don’t you treat yourself to our Post-Birth Gift Box (or share the link with friends and family as a subtle nudge towards baby shower gifts)

Post-Birth Gift Box Reusable Pads

P.S – Congratulations, mama!

This will depends on how frequently you use them. For example, if you buy 12 pads and use them in rotation, they’ll probably last longer than if you buy 6. If you buy the Bumper Pack of pick and mix 12 pads, and follow our care advice, they should last up to 4 years.

The Bumper Pack also comes with 10% off each pad too!

We recommend high-lycra,  tight-fitting briefs with a sturdy gusset to minimise movement, we’re talking big pants as opposed to teeny tiny pants. Our pads like to have something to grab onto

‘I was actually blown away – I popped it in position and it was like some kind of wizardry. The pad felt like it had disappeared – it was just so comfortable.’ – Trustpilot Customer Review

Our slimline pads have been designed using fabrics that provide minimal thickness whilst offering maximum absorbency. The Mega-Mega Flo and Mega Flo pads are slightly bulkier than the Mini and Medium Flo (you honestly won’t know you’re wearing those ones) as the super absorbent fabrics used inside these are a little thicker but with the extra size comes extra confidence

‘They are so slim & comfy don’t even realise I’m wearing them.’ – Trustpilot Customer Review

Our reusable period pads are recommended for everyday wear and have not been designed for exercise. Of course, you are free to try them out when you’re exercising or playing sport (make sure the pad is tucked upwards into the inner thigh crease, and that you wear tight-fitting underwear) but, please do bear in mind that this is not what they are intended for or been designed for and so we take no responsibility should the pads cause any discomfort or harm

Should you feel any discomfort or harm of any kind we recommend ending the use of the pads whilst you exercise
