Washable and reusable menstrual pads

Beautiful, 55% hemp 45% cotton handmade menstrual pad by MyPads (formerly Rad Pads).

These pads are hemp fleece wings and insert, with organic cotton jersey base (the part that comes into contact with the skin).  They are in a natural, creamy color ONLY.

The Hemp Fleece used for the HEMP MyPads is 55% hemp and 45% cotton.  All parts of HEMP MyPads apart from the organic cotton jersey base are made from Hemp Fleece. It is beautifully soft and ultra absorbent. The hemp component is grown without fertilizer or pesticide and the cotton is certified organic.

- Hemp fabric has antibacterial and antifungal properties, which makes it the perfect fabric for menstrual pads.
- Hemp requires no herbicides, pesticides, fungicides or fertiliser to grow, so it is more environmentally friendly to grow and safer to use on sensitive skin.
- Hemp is 10 times stronger than cotton and is therefore much more durable.
- Hemp is a little more absorbent than cotton so less fabric is needed, resulting in less bulky but more effective cloth pads.
- Hemp is a porous fibre, meaning hemp fabric breathes just as the 100% colored cotton does - making it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

By the way, just in case you're wondering - there is virtually no THC in the hemp plant that is grown for fabric, so it won’t get you high.

MyPads each come with a peel off label indicating size, use and washing instructions, and are packaged in real cellophane not plastic.  Each MyPad comes all ready to use with the appropriate size towelling/hemp liner folded inside the case.  So, when purchasing a MyPad you are paying for the case as well as whichever size insert you choose (sizes light - 2 fold, medium - 3 fold, heavy - 4 fold, super, 4 fold and longer).

Product Specifications

Sizes available: Light, medium, heavy and super.  The length and width of the MyPads (hemp or cotton) are approximately:
Heavy pad case:  Length 27cm (10.5 inches),  Width 7.5cm (3 inches)
Light, medium and heavy pad cases: Length 22.5cm (8.75 inches),  Width 7cm (2.75 inches)
Content: 55% hemp and 45% cotton
Care: Separate the outer case and towelling insert ready for washing.  Use cold or luke warm water to release the stain.
Rinse method - simply rinse your MyPad out straight after changing your pad. Use cold or luke warm water and soap and rub briskly to release stain.
Soak method - soak MyPads in cold water overnight or for several hours in the day,  then hand or GENTLE machine wash with a load.  MyPads advises against soaking for more than 24 hours in order to prolong the life of your pads.   If there is staining, you may like to apply a good quality soap and rub briskly to remove stain before washing in your preferred (hopefully biodegradable!) detergent.
Drying – the pads dry quickly outside in the sun in mild to warm/hot weather.  Cold and inclement weather sees them becoming very decorative around the fire/heater.
We advise against using a clothes drier but if you feel it is necessary  please use only the warm setting rather than hot seting.  We also advise against using the clothes drier for pads straight from the hand or machine washing process - best to let them to be at least half dry first.
Environmental qualities: Made from natural and organic materials. A reusable alternative to conventional disposable pads.
Certifications: None known View & download certifications
