Like the Cloth Pad Sampler Kit, this kit makes a great starter selection for anyone new to cloth pads! The Cloth Pad Pre-Soak Kit also includes a full-size bottle of one of our favorite cleaning products for washable cloth pads: Bi-O-Kleen's natural enzyme cleaner, Bac-Out Stain & Odor Eliminator. Simply fill the soaking bucket with water, add a dash of the lovely lime-scented Bac-Out, and add your used pads as you go!
Each Pre-Soak Kit contains:
I've heavy flow the first 2 days of my periods (at least I thought so as you'll read below) & always had leaks during this time with disposable pads. Whatever they claim in their ads they fold, they wrinkle, they twist & you end up with blood stains on your pants. Also I was tired of the plastic that makes you sweat, smell, and irritates your vulva. Cloth pads would at least be more comfortable and definitely more Earth-friendly. And honestly these are just so much BETTER! The pads DO stay in place & they're MORE absorbent: you don't have this sweaty, sticky, squishy feeling of the disposable ones because the blood coagulates normally so it doesn't smell bad & doesn't leak (no more problem for me with 2 inserts). Indeed you'll feel like your periods are not as heavy as with disposable simply because, well, cloth pads works better! And yes, it's really easy to clean & the used ones won't smell even if you keep them 24h in the water. So don't hesitate, it's really worth the cost!
I wish I had found these 20 years ago! They are much more comfortable than disposable and I feel that my body is happier already. The cloth pads and liners are so easy to clean. I thought it would take time I don't have but in reality, it's only 30 seconds a day. My teenagers thought I'd really lost it. Until, I wore them down and they tried a liner. I'm so excited that they will no longer be poisoning their bodies like I did for so many years. Not to mention, they are more comfortable . Teen approved! Thanks GladRags!
This was the kit I purchased when I first made the switch to cloth. It really contains everything you need to have a successful first experience with cloth pads. The Bac-Out smells wonderful and really works to keep the pads clean and free of stains. I really like the fact that the soaking bucket is discreet and not made of plastic. The bucket is also the perfect size to store comfortably under my bathroom sink. All the other accessories really help to make washing and transporting pads easy and uncomplicated. As far as the pads are concerned, I love that GladRags are all cotton and do not contain synthetic materials. They are very comfortable, very absorbent, and provide exceptional coverage. I highly recommend this kit for a first time cloth user!
I was very sceptic about this product. I've been using store pads and tampons for 27 years. The more I've learned abut how bad they are for our bodies and land fields I realized it was time for a change. Also I have three girls under the age of 10. If they start using this product while starting out it won't be a big deal. Every thing was easy to care for the comfort was awesome. I didn't feel like I was wearing a diaper. I have a heavy flow and no leaking.
I am brand new to cloth pads and was a little nervous at first! I am trying mine out today for the first time, and they are so comfortable! This kit has provided me with everything I need! I am not worried about leaking or smell. If this is your first time with cloth pads, I definitely recommend this kit.
Have to say if could be true I had a pain free menstrual time. The product cleans up great and I am saving money and the envitoment. I am so happy that my neice told me about this company and product. It is a little gross but I will take that over being in pain for six days out of the month.
I'm pretty allergic to plastic kotex pads so for me before I knew about reuseables cloth pads, plastic pads were a "necessary evil" Im so happy to be free of them! GR provides you with this kit which makes it easy to set up your system and routine for a TRULY Happy period. I like the print I chose because stains aren't noticeable and all the little deisngs are cute! The BioKleen has to be used correctly or you will think it doesnt work. It's still not as effective as good ole Dr. Bronner's but it was great to have in my arsenal and makes your undies and pads smell like sprite! lol Truly a convert and cant wait to order more!
I absolutely LOVED this set - as my first foray into cloth pads. There is enough of a variety of pads to get you started, the enamel pot and mesh bag are handy additions, and the Bac-out stain remover does wonders. My only wish would be that it included 3 night liners instead of only 1. All in all, a wonderful purchase that has completely changed how I experience my period! :)
I recently went on a hunt for alternative products to use for "that time of the month" especially being hyper allergic to the plastic stuff found on the more commercial pads. I found my first GladRag in my local independent grocery store, and soon knew that I would need a whole set, as this would forever change how I felt about and dealt with my monthly visitor. I loved this set, I was able to get everything I needed to start my new "wardrobe" of undergarments and be able to soak them conveniently as well. I would recommend this for anyone who wants the best value for their money in turning over a new leaf when if comes to periods!
I just started using Glad Rags reusable pads, and I love them! The cloth feels so much better than disposable, and I love knowing that I am not contributing to the growing landfills.
