Everything you need to make the switch to cloth, in one convenient kit! Includes a variety of comfortable cotton pads for all levels of flow, plus a Carry Bag for on-the-go and a Mesh Laundry Bag to keep your GladRags safe in the wash!
Each Deluxe Kit contains:
Buying all this stuff seperately would have cost so much more. I'm so happy GladRags offers this Kit. After supplementing my Kit with a couple more night pads and more pantyliners, I'm all set! I have enough pads to get through a whole cycle without washing them. I just soak them in cold water after using, and change the water daily. I wash all my pads in the washer after my cycle, throw them in the dryer with a couple clean, dry towels (otherwise they take forever to dry), assemble, then they're ready for next time. It really couldn't get much easier.
I first decided to check out reusable pads because I knew it was good for the environment. I was pleasantly surprised by how truly comfortable they are to wear since they are made of cloth, not plastic! I have only used them for a couple of cycles, but I could not imagine ever going back to disposables!
Awesome set. Comfortable & very absorbent. Moving inserts in & out is easy. Snaps snap easily & are strong. Pads stay in place well. Pads wash well. For the most part, they are like new after having been dried; occasionally, daytime & nighttime pads (not the liners) get really winkled/curled in the dryer & need a quick ironing. Bags are nice & work well. I'm really happy with this set & strongly recommend it. Excellent value for the price. 2 notes: --I recommend any color/pattern except "organic undyed." I got some "organic” pads in a smaller set & they aren't as comfortable & need to be ironed after every washing in order to be wearable. For this set, I’m glad I got a fabric that's more comfortable & easier to use. --The site says "enough to get most women through one cycle without doing laundry"; I disagree. With this set, you'll probably need to do laundry 1-3 times during your cycle. I don't mind this, but if you want to avoid doing laundry during your cycle, get additional sets.
The pads work great so far. I have been very happy with them. Easy to use and easy to wash.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to spring for the full, deluxe package. I don't usually buy much, and I try to be frugal. But after I tried out and loved a smaller pack, and remembered how unexcited to do laundry I am when on my period, I was so excited to buy this. Honestly, I'm much happier during my period because I can just unzip my bag of comfy cottony pads and pick one out whenever I like, without rationing them. It's lovely! And the last days of my period are so much more pleasant; I used to be loathe to wear plasticy pads when I wasn't sure if I'd bleed or not, but I can wear these in comfort knowing if I do bleed, it won't be a problem, and if I don't, there's just another soft layer of cotton in my day. I totally recommend this pack, it pays itself off in soft peace-of-mind very quickly. The only downside is that I want to tell everyone how much I love these, and, uh, yeah, not the best conversation starter :D
I first tried the glad rags some time back in 1996-1997. This product lasts so long! I still use them! They are such a great investment!
I wish so much that I had discovered Gladrags a decade ago. I knew at once it was the right decision, both for health and for the environment, but I was apprehensive about heavy days and laundry. I very nearly had an "accident", after which I realized I needed a change every 2.5 hours, and the pads thus didn't see me through the whole cycle. There was some side leakage, but less than I thought there would be. I was relieved that they washed well, though the green floral ones seem to stain more than the others. Only time will tell if the snap buttons will hold, but overall, quality and comfort are great.
comfortable! I like the mix / match colors! I didn't have to choose color! Thanks.
Got this kit in addition to the First Periods kit for when my daughter starts her cycle. Glad rags are such wonderful quality, I bought a large number of them 17 years ago for my first supply, and and other than a few wear and tear little rips, they're still absorbent and wonderful! Please continue the great quality and service so that my daughter will never be without cloth pads during her life.
I just got my new GladRags "Deluxe Pad Kit" and I am SO HAPPY! I am actually allergic to regular pads and I am so pleased with my purchase. The pads are really well made (they look like they will last a lifetime) and the colors are fun, almost makes me excited for my next period ;) THANK YOU GLADRAGS!!!! PS- For me the "Deluxe Pad Kit" is enough for a whole period without washing.
