Not sure it's worth the price

  • By: fabrag Verified Buyer from Fountain Valley, CA US on February 29, 2016

I'm really glad I've decided to do away with disposable pads. That said, I'm not sure how I feel about a $119 cloth pad kit that doesn't come with enough pads for at least five days... I have to keep washing pads as I go so that I have enough for the week. Also, the "bac out" presoak solution isn't any better than regular soap.

Love these!

  • By: medamom Verified Buyer from Huntingtown, MD US on January 24, 2016

I bought these for my teen daughter and she loves them! She will never go back to disposables. I'm back on the site to buy more for her. I just wish I had known of these before!

So happy I made the switch!

  • By: Katie Verified Buyer from Long Island, NY US on December 10, 2015

This is my second cycle since making the switch to cloth pads and a mooncup (which I'm still getting used to). The pads are great! They are so comfortable and I feel so much cleaner than when I was using those sticky, irritating disposable liners and pads. Clean up isn't a big deal at all. Just soak them with backout and put them with my regular laundry after a couple days of soaking in water. Thanks gladrags!

Useful but not ideal

  • By: NeMom Verified Buyer from Lincoln, NE US on October 30, 2015

Loved the pail and not breaking out for the first time in over a year before the end of my period. Had trouble with the smaller pads shifting so I had leakage. It is a nice way to try a variety of pad sizes Also found the standard pad where they went in the envelope harder to know if they needed to be replaced

Great start!

  • By: TinyP Verified Buyer from Allentown, PA US on January 23, 2017

This is a great way to get started. The pail, bag. and Boc-out solution make laundering easy and successful. The pads are soft and comfortable and have stayed in place for me. I also ordered a menstrual cup with my kit so I'm not sure if this would have otherwise gotten me through a whole period without doing wash a lot, but it was a good way to sample different sizes and complimented my cup well. First period in 18 years I didn't make any garbage! It felt good! I wish more directions came on the Boc-out, I would recommend Glad Rags make more detailed information available explaining laundering (how much solution? How long can it sit safely? Etc) I recommending hanging or lying pass flat to dry. They balled up on me in the dryer. Not a huge deal but you have to smooth them out again to not lay weird in your undies. I love the inserts and how I can adjust the protection. Super cute and soft fabric! Good craftsmanship on the stitches. Definitely worth the price for hand made.

Incredibly worth it!

  • By: Dez Verified Buyer from Groton, CT US on January 22, 2017

I was initially nervous about dropping the money on the pre-soak kit, but it was the best deal I think possible. Pros: the pads don't feel itchy like disposables. They don't bunch up the same either. They're soft and clean fairly easily. I don't have immediate access to a washer/dryer but the little pot that comes with the kit is a perfect little mini washer! After soaking, I throw in some detergent & shake to wash them! It's a bit extra work but very, very worth it for the comfort these pads provide. Cons: I hadn't realized how large the night pad was. I've not needed it. I kind of wish I had chosen a value kit that didn't include it. One of the liners also twists quite a bit while wearing it. Not all of them do, so I wear that liner as a backup when wearing a menstrual cup, or on a very light day. Overall, I do not regret my purchase! I'm infinitely more comfortable than I ever have been on my period, and it feels great to be environmentally-friendly as well.
